According to the updates that were posted on his website, it was a couple of different injuries in his right arm, but one of his more recent updates said he's feeling better every day. So hopefully things are going in the right direction for him

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Former college star shines on ATP tour
Pro tennis player gives back to local community; looks to make his way back into top 75, qualify for this year's U.S. Open
Warren Waterman
Cavalier Daily Staff Writer

The Virginia men's tennis team has made gigantic strides in recent years from an average program to a national powerhouse. This year the men's team finished fifth in the nation -- its highest ranking ever. One of the people responsible for this meteoric rise is Brian Vahaly, arguably one of the greatest players to ever swing a racquet at U.Va.

Vahaly and close friend and teammate Huntley Montgomery put U.Va. tennis on the map by achieving amazing results for the Cavaliers. In 2001, his final year at Virginia, Vahaly reached the finals of the NCAA singles championships and he and Montgomery ended that year ranked No. 1 in the nation in doubles. Currently ranked 176 in the world on the ATP tour, Vahaly has been ranked as high as 64 and believes he can be there again.

"I still feel I have some great tennis left and feel as though I have room to improve," he said.

Great tennis is something with which the Virginia alumnus is familiar. Vahaly beat Juan Carlos Ferrero when he was ranked No. 1 in the world just before Ferrero won the 2003 French Open. Additionally, he has had good results at several ATP tournaments that year, reaching the quarterfinals at Indian Wells and the semifinals of Memphis before losing to Andy Roddick. Roddick, a close friend, and Vahaly teamed up to beat the top ranked doubles team of Mike and Bob Bryan in Washington D.C. that same year.

Being part of the ATP tour has allowed Vahaly to travel the world, but Vahaly says it's not as glamorous as people think.

"I'm on the road every week and rarely get to spend anytime at home with friends and family," Vahaly said. "I can't remember the last time I was in the same city for over two weeks."

With all of his energy devoted to tennis and travel, it's hard to imagine that Vahaly has time for anything else. Yet with the help of some of his friends in the sports community including Roddick, Atlanta Braves infielder Keith Lockhart and fellow Wahoo Patrick Kerney of the Atlanta Falcons (CLAS, '99), Vahaly has established a charitable foundation for after school programs for underprivileged kids in Atlanta that provides computers, tutors, and free tennis lessons to keep them off the streets.

"I always felt it was important to give back to the community, especially when so many people took part in the success of my career," Vahaly said. "It's really an awesome thing and something I'm very very proud of."

Of course, he stills follows the Cavaliers and the great tennis program he helped build.

"They've had an amazing run," Vahaly said. "I honestly feel as though they can win the national championship next year. I continually speak with [Virginia men's tennis coach] Brian Boland and know he has what it takes to take this program to the top."

He regularly keeps tabs with Montgomery and other former teammates as well.Montgomery has fond memories of the glory years with Vahaly.

"We've had some great times together," Montgomery said. "I think some of the best times were just coming up with big wins to help the 'Hoos take down tough teams. We are good friends and I'm sure it will remain that way."

Vahaly is currently playing World Team Tennis for the New York Buzz in Albany, NY. At the end of July it is back on the tour which he hopes will culminate in a berth at the U.S. Open in New York at the end of August. But what about life after the tour?

"I graduated from the Comm. School so I've always had life after tennis on my mind," Vahaly said. "I never saw my self completely as a one dimensional tennis player, but right now my focus remains on tennis...as long as I'm still enjoying myself."

Whatever he does in the future however, Virginia will almost certainly always remain in Vahaly's blood.

"I continue to wear my U.Va. clothes wherever I go," he said.

Once a Cavalier, always a Cavalier.

Fee! Your hair looks quite small in the pic with Brian. (I am having great difficulty in trying to make that sound...normal. LOL!)

Thanks for the article smucav. Hope to see him in Australia next year

Yes, it was having a 'small' day. That happens more often in warmer weather, if I get a little sweaty from sitting in the sun and such.

Where have all of Brian's fans been? I know you're here. This week, he's playing in the Bronx Challenger (Sasa Tuksar of Croatia is his first opponent)
and it looks like next week he'll be in the USO qualifying. I don't think he's going to get a WC this year, he's kind of off the radar these days.

Re: The "I Love Brian Vahaly" Thread

Brian Vahaly’s road to the season’s final Grand Slam has taken a winning return off the Grand Concourse. The 182nd-ranked Vahaly toppled top-seeded Lukas Dlouhy of the Czech Republic, 7-6(5), 6-1 today to advance to the men’s final of the GHI Bronx Tennis Classic at Crotona Park.

Vahaly, who won the Tallahassee Challenger in April without dropping a set, takes on Thierry Ascione of France in Sunday’s final. The 118th-ranked Ascione defeated fellow Frenchman Edouard Roger-Vasselin, 7-6(6), 6-3, in today’s other semifinal.

Tickets for Sunday's 11 a.m. final are $10 with free admission for children 12 and under. Free on-site supervised parking is available in front of the tennis courts on Crotona Avenue. Crotona Park is easily accessible by train. Take the No. 2 or No. 5 subway to 174th Street, walk across the street and up the hill from the subway and the tennis courts will come into view.

Once ranked as high as No. 64, Vahaly will try to qualify for the U.S. Open at next week’s qualifying event at the National Tennis Center.

((4)Thierry Ascione (FRA) d. Brian Vahaly (USA) 6-2 6-3)

Re: The "I Love Brian Vahaly" Thread

I had a dream about Mr Vahaly last night. See, in the most recent edition of Aus Tennis Magazine, Sam Stosur wrote an article, and his name was spelled 'v-a-h-a-l-l-y' and it was so annoying! There he was, in the pic... beaming smile... announced to the world as vahally. pfft. So, in my dream I told him. His care factor was lower than mine. End.
