Good to see he came through in the end. Pospisil will be a lot tougher.

Re: John "the Mailman" Millman Cheering Thread

Lost 6-3 6-4. Once again did what was expected of him this week and lost to a player who was simply too good. Hopefully he can do well in Cherbourg.

Re: John "the Mailman" Millman Cheering Thread

Fought hard as always, not a bad showing against a tough player in good form.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Playing in France this week. Takes on Kravchuk in the first round would expect him to win that match.

Re: John "the Mailman" Millman Cheering Thread

Kravchuk's a good player on the indoor hardcourts and John will be the underdog here especially if Kravchuk gets his serve going.

Re: John "the Mailman" Millman Cheering Thread

Johnny wins 61 63. Tremendous win and it will be interesting to see if he can break his second round losing streak against Burquier or one of the GOATS of racquet smashing in Kudryavtsev.

Re: John "the Mailman" Millman Cheering Thread

Great stuff guys, needs to just keep working and it will come to him. Not sure about all the surface changes.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: John "the Mailman" Millman Cheering Thread

Great win for John. If anyone is interested John now has his own website - http://www.johnmillman.com/ it has both a blog and insight section that he reguarly updates (just wrote about being on the train to Cherbourg) and also a forum. I suggest we all join the forum and frequently post in there giving him our support as well as giving him something to read while he is looking to kill some time. Action Jackson, John stated in his last blog post that he is switching to hard for the next month or so because "the shins are felling good". Hopefully he doesn't get injured but his next match will probably be tough against the 7th seed.

Re: John "the Mailman" Millman Cheering Thread

The Mailman delivers the first set against Kudryatsev, sneaking an end of set break to snaffle the set 6-4. Keep it going John.
Kudryatsev levels, winning 2nd set 6-2.
Third set is a titanic struggle - swopping breaks to get to the tie-break.
The Mailman wins tie-break 7-2. Bloody good win John. Well done.

Re: John "the Mailman" Millman Cheering Thread

Classic Mailman, lots of heart and fight, funny how many matches can he won by just hanging in there.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
