Re: Week 35+36: US Open

So Kristof IS in the maindraw! Quite pathetic the Belgian press forgot about him!
Maybe he can surprise Kafelnikov in the first round!

What a stupid draw for Olivier/Xavier! I would really love to see them play eachother, but not in the first round of the USopen!

Re: Week 35+36: US Open

There was an article about Kristof Vliegen in today's newspaper. He said his season was very hard because someone close to him died and he broke up with his girlfriend (they even had an appartment together).
He sees the USopen as a new start of his career and he thinks he has a chance against Kafelnikov!

I hope he can beat him! I would love to see him in the second round (at least! ) of his first slam!!

Re: Week 35+36: US Open (GS) & Alphen a/d Rijn-15k

Alphen a/d Rijn - $15.000
R1: Denis Gremelmayr (GER) (388) vs. (14) Stefan Wauters (BEL) (443) 6-0 6-2

still don't know if Stefan won the previous tournament in Enschede. Does anyone has a clue?

Re: Week 35+36: US Open (GS) & Alphen a/d Rijn-15k

Kristof lost 6-3, 6-7, 2-6, 2-6 !
He was playing (and especially serving) really well in the first 2 sets. Then he started having problems with his right hand and his back. His serve went down and he made much more forehand errors than before.
He had treatment for his back after the 3th set, but it didn't seem to help

I feel so sorry for him! He made lots of great points in the beginning (lot of winners!) and the crowd was really supportive for him. That injury really bothered him when he was serving/hitting forehands... If he would have been healthy he would have had a great chance of winning this match I think!!
If he gets healthy now and keeps playing at that level in his next tournaments he should enter the top100 soon. He could have a nice career I think!

Re: Week 35+36: US Open (GS) & Alphen a/d Rijn-15k

The first set of Kristof was blasting! With his killer-service and dito forehand Kafelnikov couldn't do much against him. Lookin' at total points made, in the beginning of the match Kristof was even leading 16-2 against Yevgeni!

too bad he couldn't hold in the tie-break of the 2nd set. And from then it was both a mental and fysical struggle for Kristof. Pity he lost, but he has shown he's back in form!!!
