Yeah, I thought that was kind of strange too. He will play DC in Bulgaria, then fly to the US, then back to Europe again?

I hope he doesn't try to play too much and get himself tired I know he is a young man, but all that tennis plus all that travelling can not be easy on anyone.

He should tank in Houston, and make sure he is ready for the better clay events. He is meant to have family in the area, so that could be the reason he is playing there.

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: Will Marcos Like the Clay in Houston? - 2006 U.S. Men's Clay Court Championship

Maybe he wants to have a tournament in clay before in the tough clay tournaments? Clay is not his best surface and he havent play clay for a while

Sharapova vs Mauresmo...

Before game starts:
Sharapova: You are so hot today Amelie.. Wanna go for a drink after the game? ^^

Result: Sharapova - Mauresmo 2-0 (6-0 6-0)

Re: Will Marcos Like the Clay in Houston? - 2006 U.S. Men's Clay Court Championship

There are 2 months of clay tournaments, he could have easily played in Valencia. More practical as in travel time from DC to Spain to Monaco.

Then there is either Barcelona/Casachallenger, or after that Estoril/Munich before Rome and Hamburg.

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".

Good luck Marcos ! Win some matches in Houston get some good practice 4 the clay TMSs and RG

I suck at TT so there's no reason to brag with my 1st round exits :retard:
And I adore Radiohead
