Too bad Mike, but still nice to get that far.

Re: Michael Russell

Mike is now ranked at 138 now and hope he can have some more good results.

He has the week off now.

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: Michael Russell

Mike won his 1st match in the Calabasas Ch 6-7 6-1 6-1, good finish to the match and he now plays Warburg in the 2nd round.

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: Michael Russell

He is playing in Louisville and is playing the young and talented Dutch player Robin Haase.

If he gets through that it will be a match with either Warburg or Sela.

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: Michael Russell

Two tough tiebreaks in the loss category for Mike. I like Robin at least.

I may go next week to Nashville to see Mike and others again. I'll tell him his online contingent has grown some.

Re: Michael Russell

I think you should Jole and well he will be playing Pless in the 1st round and that should be enough to get him going, he seems to do better when it's least expected.

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: Michael Russell

Tough loss for Russ against the serving machine Pless, but such is life and just hope he can do well in the later events.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Re: Michael Russell

Mike is playing in Champaign and is up against the funny man Lipsky in the 1st round and if he wins that will be playing Kendrick in the next round.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Re: Michael Russell

It was an easy 6-1 6-2 win for Mike and now he plays Kendrick and hope he can return serve better in this match than the previous one.

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: Michael Russell

Russ defated Kendrick in straight sets 6-2 6-3 and now plays Bastl for a place in the semis.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Re: Michael Russell

Mike is continuing on his run and defeated Bastl 6-4 6-2 and now plays the winner of Fleishman and Anderson.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".
