Re: The Australian Season Thread 2009

Pleased to see him play, but I'm still a little anxious about his back. We'll have to see how his back reacts on matches. Hopefully it is not getting so stiff as in Sydney...

Re: The Australian Season Thread 2009

Hey guys
Jo looks to be running away with match now! He does look like he has put on a little bit of weight. How much training has he been doing since he hurt his back?

Re: The Australian Season Thread 2009

Easy win, as expected

For the weight, he said he is 92 kg, his normal weight, but he's aiming for 89 kg in the future.

Personaly, I think it's the shirt that gives this impression. It was more visible withe the ancient green one. The yellow one is cool by the way.

Re: The Australian Season Thread 2009

Perfect start, winning in straight sets very comfortably. I liked what I saw, considering the back injury and little practice before his first match. Noticed his back was taped, and I hope that it holds up for the next match - and hopefully more matches - to come. Really proud of his performance today.

Re: The Australian Season Thread 2009

Excellent start
It seems it will be Ljubo in the 2nd. He's a legend in his own right around here, but I don't think Jo will have much problems there
