Re: Mantilla Thread

Yes, he can take down Portas. I just hope he doesn't need to save 9 mps to do it this time.

He needs a really good result here, and get back into the top 100.

He has a 5-2 record over Portas, so he should be the man to take him out again.

Re: Mantilla Thread

Vamos Felix, this is a huge chance to make the semi finals at least, now just take care of Portas.

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".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Re: Mantilla Thread

He took care of Portas but that was very close unfortunately, hopefully he can continue his form and make his 1st semi final of the year, it's bad that the winner of Rome last year, has to play here, but it's a start, so vamos Felix.

Re: Mantilla Thread

Felix made the semis which is a good thing, and I hope he can take this title.

There is a minute audio in English from him after his match with Portas.

Mantilla: "Well first of all I'm really happy to have won this match. It was an unbelievably tough match. We know our games very well but he always plays very well against me. If he played like that everytime he would be much better ranked."

"I don't have the big serve that someone like Safin has. I'm smaller, but I have a big heart and a lot of courage. That's why I've played well all my career. The last year, for some reasons, my motivaiton went down and I didn't play with that same courage that I showed today. Two weeks ago I said I must play two or three more years but playing every match giving everything I had."

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: Mantilla Thread

Mantilla is on the list to play in Bucharest, and might have to play qualies.

Then after that he is playing in Palermo.

Re: Mantilla Thread

Felix got into the main draw and took out the # 5 seed Davydenko 7-5 6-0.

keep up the good work Felix and perhaps he can have some good results and possibly win a tournament this year.

Re: Mantilla Thread

Another quarter final appearance, that means some more points for him, and he has Palermo and maybe he can make another quarter final and at least he is back in the top 100 now, and he will make the main draws of the Slams.

Re: Mantilla Thread

Belated happy birthday wishes for Felix.

He is now on the way to playing in Palermo. I hope that he can have another good showing in a tournament that he has won before in the last tour clay event of the season.

Re: Mantilla Thread

Maybe he is injured and he had to pull out of the tournament.
