congrats Christophe!!!

Good luck belgian boys!!!

eSpeCiAlLy:

Olivier Rochus


Also good luck to ~Jarkko Nieminen~Juan Carlos Ferrero~Filippo Volandri~


"Rochus' career serves as tennis proof that size does matter — the size of a player's heart — and the smallest man on the ATP Tour continues to come up big in that area."

Re: Ollie & Christophe in Hamburg!!

This was an awesome result to see!!

Ljubicic just doesn't like playing the Rochus brothers, I guess

Re: Ollie & Christophe in Hamburg!!

I watched this match on TV Live. It was AWESOME!!!!!

To see Christophe get this far is beautiful and he will definitely reach a new career high ranking.

I was so afraid that his nerves would cause him to start missing shots but he hung in there and tried to breathe . Christophe was definitely the better player today and I hope that no one tries to take that away from him.

The icing on the cake, for me, is that Christophe has always been my favorite of the two and to see him doing well this year is great. I think Ollie is inspiring him...after all, Ollie is the younger one and Christophe wants people to know he can do just as good. He's not a little powerhouse like Ollie but his shots are smooth

Go Christophe!!!!!!

Enjoying The Tennis Channel, are we??!!!

This may be the first time I have seen Christophe play, but what a pleasure. The touch and finesse were wonderful.

Well done, Christophe! Now seize your chance and try to get even further in this tourny!

Re: Ollie & Christophe in Hamburg!!

He's already won 5 matches!! That would be enough for a "normal" weekly tournament to win the title . Regardless, of what happens today...he will have achieved A LOT.

My TV has barely left it .

I haven't seen Christophe play in ages (so long ago that I can't remember what network it was or what tourney was being shown ) and I was reminded today why I liked him. He's always been my favorite Rochus brother...just hasn't had the breaks and wins like Ollie.

Re: Ollie & Christophe in Hamburg!!

He's in the SFs of a MS for the first time!!!!!

I haven't seen the match yet (couldn't get up that early) but I have seen the score and not only did he beat Chela but he bageled him in the 2nd set

I can't wait to see the match in full later . He'll play either Gasquet or Seppi. Great chance to get in the Final

GO CHRISTOPHE!!!!!
