Smile Finishing out 2007

I hope no one minds, but I didn't see a thread for this. Ilija took some time off to rest and heal his wrist, but he is back on court in the Sacramento Challenger this week. He won his first match today against Mathieu Montcourt (I think it was 6-3, 6-4 but I'm not sure). I put two pictures of him (not very good ones, sorry) in the Challenger thread, post #41.

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.

Re: Finishing out 2007

Ilija lost to Lu 4-6 1-6
and in doubles Ilija lost with "his brother" Dule in semifinal...

Ilija will play Calabasas next week, in the first Round he will face Juan Pablo Villar (ARG)...
I guess he will play doubles again with Dule, but the draw has not been released yet...

Re: Finishing out 2007

Ilija won another two matches. He will play against D. Young in SF for comeback in top200. Awful season with nice finish for Ika, but this results could be important for the next year standings.

Re: Finishing out 2007

yes its good for Bozo to be into the semis, he will play a few more tournaments this year and I hope he will continue like that, that he will finish around 150...(or better :-P).
if he wins today against young he will be top200 and he played well so he has the chance to win and to win the tournament...

GO BOZO...

Re: Finishing out 2007

Next tournament for Ilija will be Remouski (all players who entered are in, no qualy, and even a bye in main draw..., seems like nobody wants to play it LOL)

Ilija is number 7 seeded, first Round Jean Simon Bourgie (CAN-WC), I think the toughest match for him will be Quarters, Isner...

Good Luck Ilija
