I second that opinion part of why his game interest me is coz of his height, he's prove that tennis isnt dominated by giants! i think either taller or shorter, theres certain attributes that follows, n i think ORochus have more potential locked up somewhere...i hope he gets in top 10 someday!(hes just reached his Career high Ranking-Singles:29 8/22/2005, now that he's in top 30, top 10 is only 19 spots away)

btw, is this his offical cheering thread??, seems like nobody is posting here anymore...

Re: Olivier Rochus

Hello out there

Re: Olivier Rochus

Is it the first time he 's seeded at a grandslam?
you're rght chewy, we have to start posting more in here again!
I'm so happy I'll see him at the davis cup in Leuven. I'll take like thousands of photos and post them all in here, ok? ..
lapetitelola, I dunno what to think of his draw, the first round looks ok, but that Vik guy has three wins under his belt in qualies, he'll have a lot of confidence, qualifiers can surprise, but however I guess he'll win that first round. The second round already seems more difficult,
Hanescu- Rochus 1-0 (63, 60 tough, it was on clay)
Montanes- Rochus 1-1 ( 16, 46 and the other one 61,61, both on clay..)
and for Rochus the usopen was always his worst grandslam , always first round losses ( except last year), but I don't think he'll repeat his fourth round, like last year, there can already be a third round against Federer thats just..
however, please ollie, surprise us

Ivo Minar CZE

Fabrice Santoro FRA
vs.
Jurgen Melzer AUT

Albert Montanes ESP
vs.
Victor Hanescu ROM

Robin Vik CZE

Olivier Rochus BEL (27)

heres Oli's part of the draw, i hope he can get the opportunity to face federer in d 3rd rd(atleast it will be likely shown on tv) and i just want to see how he rates against the current worlds best.

Elleke, i think it's his 1st time seeded 'normally', coz i remeber in wimbledon he was seeded as no.33(whn a player withdraw). no idea abt d doubles
and thz in advance for d photos!

Re: Olivier Rochus

Hello. New fan here!

I watched part of his match today at the USO and there's something about him that I really enjoyed. And if I remember, I have pictures too that I can eventually post if anyone wants to see them.

Mardy Fish for president.

Re: Olivier Rochus

Sounds like a comfortable win with some problems to find into the match.
Has anybody seen it? Does he look good (tennis related, of course! )?
