Re: John "the Mailman" Millman Cheering Thread

John has come back well after being out for months.

Next event should be Happy Valley starting next week.

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".

Johnny made the semis beating Hensel in straight sets and has a chance to avenge the defeat against Jamie Baker in the semis.

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".

John has been training well and hope he can do well in the Futures events coming up.

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".

Colin is a good bloke, but go Johnny.

Edben defeated Johnny 6-3 6-4 in the final, hope he can get over the finals problems in future.

John is into the semis this week after winning his QF 6-0 6-0. Looks like he's struck some form.

The Mailman is in the semis of the Kalgoorlie futures, he defeated Smeets 7-6(5) 6-1. He plays the winner of Dayne Kelly and King-Turner.

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

Re: John "the Mailman" Millman Cheering Thread

Nice work Millman and will play King-Turner.

Futures are imitating Masters Series! Top 8 seeds in the quarters and top 4 seeds in the semis. Hopefully Millman can break the trend and beat the number 2 seed in the semis.

Re: John "the Mailman" Millman Cheering Thread

Would be great if John could make the final here and have another good run at Bendigo. Might be a rough chance of direct entry into Aus Open Qualies considering Slabinsky got into the Qualies this year after with a rank of 331 after a series of withdrawals (he will get a wildcard in any case but direct entry would free up a wildcard for someone else).

Baker (USA) - Bedene (SLO) - Bellucci (BRA) - Berta (SWE) - Cuevas (URU) - Domijan (USA) - Ebden (AUS) - Estrella (DOM) - Grigelis (LTU) - Guccione (AUS) - Heliovaara (FIN) - Kavcic (SLO) - King (BAH) - Kontinen (FIN) - Kubler (AUS) - Lajovic (SRB) - Matosevic (AUS) - McGee (IRE) - Millman (AUS) - Mitchell (AUS) - Nielsen (DEN) - Nieminen (FIN) - Paire (FRA) - Udomchoke (THA)
