Re: The "LET Users" Chat Thread!

My reputation is something to be ashamed of, so you can use it all on me, Lee.

I'm thrilled for Ricardo. What an accomplishment! That nice run in the US Open was not a fluke it seems. Good luck for him.

Re: The "LET Users" Chat Thread!

I'm happy for Ricardo too! It's very exciting to win your first ATP title, I guess.

Well, at least there's another Brazilian at top 100. Has Saretta fallen out of top 100 yet?

What's Mello's next tournament?

Saretta!!! What's wrong with him? He hardly won a match since the DC debacle!!! He is a better player than Mello, isn't he?

edit: Mello will be in Shanghai and Saretta in Bangkok. Good luck guys, especially Saretta.

Re: The "LET Users" Chat Thread!

Brazilian players to win ATP level titles

ONE - Thomaz Koch, Alberto Kirmayr and Ricardo Mello
TWO - Jaime Oncins
THREE - Fernando Meligeni
SEVEN - Luiz Mattar
TWENTY - Gustavo Kuerten

Mello broke a sequency of 19 straight titles of Brazil coming from Guga (last before all those was Meligeni winning Praga in May 1998).

Ricardo is only the 12th player to be ranked among the 70 top players in the world
Gustavo Kuerten (1), Thomaz Koch (24), Fernando Meligeni (25), Luiz Mattar (29), Marcos Hocevar (30), Jaime Oncins (34), Carlos Kirmayr (36), Flávio Saretta (44), Cássio Motta (48), André Sá (55) and Júlio Goes (68) are the others.

He now plays in Shangai, then Tokyo and then Metz. He is considering skipping China to stay with his family and celebrate.

Re: The "LET Users" Chat Thread!

I don't know who is the better player.
Saretta seems to have more weapons, but his head doesn't help 90% of the time. Mello is the repeater.. He keeps on trying untill he finds his way. The problem I saw with his game is that he lacks a major weapon, but he is still developing and I haven't seen much of him to make a precise statement

Re: The "LET Users" Chat Thread!

So Saretta is another head case while Mello is a grinder. I'm thinking may be Brazil needs to hire some good coaches. What's your thought?
