Re: Olivier Rochus

Olli in top 40. WOW. But he deserves to be there.

Did anyone notice that he gave the later champion of the AO a good run for his money. Only Federer pushed Safin harder during the AO!

Way to go, Olli!

Re: Olivier Rochus

He did commit to marseille but he isn't in the draws so I guess he withdrew

He has committed to Rotterdam (February 14-20) and will have to play quallies.
Then Dubai (21st to 27th) and again is in quallies list and then Indian Wells ofcourse

Kristof, Xavier & Oli

Tommy Haas

Guillermo & David

Right now Olivier Rochus is my favorite player to watch on the men's tour. At this year's Australian Open, and at the '04 French and U.S. Opens, he showed great talent and entertaining play. Do you think he has a chance to break into the top 20?
-- J. Lewis, New York

Wertheim:
Much as we love Rochus, his reaching the top 20 is an awfully tall order (sorry), given his serve is so punchless. On the other hand, he won more games off of Safin in Melbourne than Lleyton Hewitt did! Incidentally, Safin was asked to assess Rochus' top-20 potential, and he gave a thoughtful answer. I would like to give you the link, but, inexplicably, his fourth-round transcript is not posted on the Aussie Open Web site. Hmmm ...

Re: Olivier Rochus

Why Ollie had to play qualies to finally play Rotterdam??? Other players lower ranked than Ollie (like Karol beck) entered directly to the main draw...

A post that deserves to be on MTF Hall of Fame soon:

Direct entries for tournaments are determined by the entry rankings six weeks before the tournament begins (seedings are determined by the most immediate entry rankings before the draw). The direct entries for this week followed the entry rankings for 1/3/05 when Rochus was #66. (Beck was #44 that week.)

This should be the last tournament where he has to play qualifying for quite a while. Top 50 (he #40 right now) is good enough to get into all AMS events with 96 or 64 draws as well as all the Grand Slams & regular ATP events.

Re: Olivier Rochus

Hi

Made some pics of Ollie last Tuesday. http://photobucket.com/albums/v723/Meeeks/
Too bad he lost later on in the tournament

Re: Olivier Rochus

The match of Olivier against Feliciano Lopez in Rotterdam was really entertaining.

And he's really friendly aswell, and he and Roger were so sweet at a training!

(oh, i had no clue Olivier was thát small )

He's the shortest player in the top 100 (& has been for several years) and is believed to be the shortest player in history in the top 40 (see the SI article I posted earlier in this thread).
