Rui MacHado "the Scottish Number 1" Cheering Thread

Yes, I know Machado is not Scottish, and it's a play on his last name.

He had a good season this year and should be able to make the top 100 in 2010 barring injury, which impacted on his progress towards the end of 2009.

He won a couple of challengers in Meknes and Athens, plus he made the 2nd round of Roland Garros and lost to Crazy Koellerer in the first round of the US Open.

Machado is on the list for the AO qualies, hope he can play it and make the MD.

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".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1
