Re: Mantilla Thread

Felix plays Oscar Hernandez in the 1st round of the tournament in Buenos Aires.

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

He shouldn't have lost to Martin. I was hoping that he would make the semis at least, he needs to win these kinds of matches.

One thing though he doesn't have to meet Gaudio and that is good for me as I can't really cheer against or for either player in this case.

joe, the link didn't work.

Re: Mantilla Thread

Thanks for the pics they are really cool.

Felix is back in the top 100 which is great, but he really needs to step in this upcoming section of the season and hopefully he can make it 50 or around that, it would be fantastic.

Re: Mantilla Thread

I think Felix will play another 2 years, then he'll finish up. He is ranked #88 and it could have been so much better, had he made semis instead of quarter finals like the matches he lost against Alberto Martin and Puerta.

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: Mantilla Thread

Felix is on the list for Valencia and he'll be playing the qualies. I just hope he can get back into some more form and make a main draw for the clay TMS events.

Re: Mantilla Thread

Felix killed Oscar that is good to see and now has a huge match against Gonzalez, just hope Gonzo can be off and Felix can run everything down and maybe they should water the court a bit more.

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: Mantilla Thread

The warrior made it into the main draw of Monte Carlo.

In the first round he took out Patience very easily.

In the last round he lost the first to David Sanchez 3-6 but won the next two 6-3 7-5. He served it for the match at 5-3 and had heaps of break points, he has to convert them in the next matches.

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: Mantilla Thread

He now plays gasquet in the second round, its on sky interactive so i can watch it! im really happy because i can watch pipo-canas after too!
if he beats gasquet he would probably play canas, and has beaten him quite a few times! after that could be fed! damn i am wishing so much for a fed rematch, such good memories of their last match
