Re: Mantilla Thread

In this case I have to cheer for Gaudio only cause of the venue of this tournament, you'll get these idiots who are looking for him to stuff 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".

More than likely it will be Froggy Ferrer.

The bit I love is all the Mantilla fans now just because he is playing Gaudio, yet some of these people whine about double standards when people cheer against their player.

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 lost to Coria in the 2nd rd of Umag05 today, but here's a photo of him at the autograph stand

Re: Mantilla Thread

Felix lost to that weasel Coria in 3 sets yet again. I wish they'd play over 5 sets, it's frustrating, yet encouraging that there is some life in the warrior at the moment, as long as he finishes within the top 100 and will play in Australia next season.

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

Just a shame he gets coria twice in a few weeks so early on, but i suppose that will happen when he has a bad ranking.

Re: Mantilla Thread

Mantilla now plays coria in the 1st round of the usopen 3rd time in as many months! At least we will get to watch felix i cant see coria playing on a court other than the five they are covering on sky interactive.

Re: Mantilla Thread

I've decided to refresh the thread as I haven't heard any news about Felix. Anybody knows what's going on and why he's not playing? Does he have an injury?

Re: Mantilla Thread

He hasn't announced his retirement, but I don't think we will be seeing him play again.

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 was always funny to watch and so open-hearted... Even after a lost match he always knew how to thank the people and so he was adored here in Poland... I'm gonna miss him a lot, but I still hope I can see him play...

Re: Mantilla Thread
