Re: It's nice to have you Carsten.

Sad he will proabably be no more than a Guccione. Consistency is so important in Tennis, and its really unfortunate this is something he stuggles with.

Going to play back to back challengers in Italy on clay. I'm suprised because there is a US challenger on at the same time as this one.

Re: It's nice to have you Carsten.

He beat De Voest 6-4 5-7 7-6. Plays Tatsuma Ito next. I'm really hoping he qualifies here because back to back US Open main draw appearances would do his confindence a world of good.

Carsten Ball wins 7-6 6-3 6-4 against Juan Pablo Brzezicki in the first round of the US Open. His first ever Grand Slam singles win!

Go out and enjoy the second round Novak Djokovic match!
