Re: Who are the PAW Masters Cup Qualifiers?

favourite player: used to be Guga, but now that he's gone, I'm not sure.. Berdych has been one of my faves for a couple of years.

style: James Blake style - I just close my eyes and hope for the best.

Main qualification results:

Winner: Cincinatti TMS, Estoril, Queen's, Indianapolis, Los Angeles and Mumbai (as you can see I'm the king of MM tourneys).

poor performance at the Slams

Re: Who are the PAW Masters Cup Qualifiers?

sighs..!
i cant put my profile in here

good luck to all finalists!

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream.

Re: Who are the PAW Masters Cup Qualifiers?

Name: Martijn Schrijvershof
Age: 27
Hometown: Maarssen, The Netherlands
Favourite Player: Roger Federer (since Rotterdam 1999)
Plays: Left handed, double handed backhand (mostly)
Play like: Nadal - lefthanded with lots of spin in both serve and forehand (allthough I'm nowhere near as good )
Want to play like: Berdych/Safin - just blowing people of the court would be my prefered playing style but I don't have the power or the balls to keep doing that.


Main qualification results:

Semi finalist in both Roland Garros and the US Open, top 10 finishes in the other Grand Slams.
Titles: Doha and Bejing. Finalist: Bastad (losing to robus on the final day thx to Davydenko)
Only 1 top 25 finish in 9 Masters Series tournaments (9th in Madrid).

Other facts:

Screwed up in both Indian Wells and Miami by missing the start of the tournament.
Trying to retain my #1 ranking in Shanghai allthough that could prove difficult with so many people close together in the top.

ROGER FEDERER

Berdych, Blake, J. Johansson, Ljubicic, Nalbandian and Tursunov


2005 PAW Year-end ranking: 1
2006 PAW Year-end ranking: 1
2007 PAW Year-end ranking: 6

Career titles (7): 2004 – Toronto AMS; 2005 – Monte Carlo AMS, Roland Garros, Kitzbühel; 2006 – Doha, Beijing; 2007 - Kitzbühel.
Finalist (3): 2005 – Miami AMS, Barcelona; 2006 – Bastad.

Re: Who are the PAW Masters Cup Qualifiers?

With the biiiig Luck here i am

Name: Lukasz "LukeLasko" Laskowski
Age: 21
Hometown: Warszawa (Warsaw)
Country: POLAND
Favourite Player: David Nalbandian
Plays: one-handed forehand, two-handed backhand
Style: defensive style, something quasi-Hewitt, with quite good first serve, shitty second and bad volley.

First year in PAW, pretty good beginning and very bad finish (lack of time).
In this place i would like to thank hallso, who showed me this really nice game and sometimes was good guy to talk about pics.

I won 1 tournament, Indian Wells.

When i find more time i will write something.

Re: Who are the PAW Masters Cup Qualifiers?

Name: Mark
Age: 26
Hometown: Sydney, Australia
Favourite Player: Lleyton Hewitt (pre the Bec Cartwright slump)
Plays: Right Handed.
Wishes he played like: Santoro, because it would be a hell of a lot of fun to frustrate the crap out of those big serving galoots on the ATP tour that only have the one game plan!
What he actually looks like when he plays: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pbaGXiiSI_Y

Main Qualification Results

Consistency was the key this year for the soft serving Aussie as he managed to play a Davydenko like 35 tournaments in which he managed to finish in the top 20 23 times.

Titles: Beaunos Aires & Halle
Runner Up: Sydney

Grand Slam Results
Australian Open: 10th
French Open: 16th
Wimbledon: 33rd
US Open: 53rd

Masters Series Results
Indian Wells: 22nd
Miami: 15th
Monte Carlo: 84th
Rome: 18th
Hamburg: 3rd
Toronto: 6th
Cincinnati: 10th
Madrid: 71st
Paris: 17th

Other facts:

* He likes long walks on the beach, candlelit dinners and ........ whoops wrong site
* He is the defending Masters Cup Champion after defeating arch nemesis Bad Gambler in a tight five setter last year and will be back to defend his title after finishing seventh in this seasons points race.
* Finally for all the female fans of the PAW tour, yes he is still single so there is still hope for you yet

Re: Who are the PAW Masters Cup Qualifiers?

Hey everyone -

I'm T.J. from the Washington DC suburbs but proudly representing the Rock of Gibraltar...

Favorite players are Gasquet, Safin and Guga

Won the Aussie Open and made it to #1 this year, trying to get back there...
