Re: the AMER DELIC thread !!!!

Well, I think Amer might be back on track now. He's winning consecutive matches, and that's how you get back in the top 100. This is good, very good.

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: the AMER DELIC thread !!!!

Even though I'm sure Young contributed to Amer being able to come back, him coming back from that kind of deficit and that # of SPs is also very very good

Re: the AMER DELIC thread !!!!

from the atp site



Another 18-year-old, Donald Young, could not close the deal in his all-American first round match against qualifier Amer Delic despite racing out to the 5-0 lead in the opening set. He held two set points on Delic's serve in the 10th game of the set and then had four more in the first set tie-break, but Delic came back to win the tie-break and the match, 7-6(7), 6-3.

"To go down 5-love was a combiniation of him playing well and me just coming out kind of sluggish," said Delic. "This morning when I woke up, I didn't even think we were going to step on the court; there was a monsoon coming through. I guess it was maybe a lack of preparation."

Delic, who also reached the second round at Delray Beach in 2004, captured the title at the Dallas Challenger two weeks ago. In January, he reached the second round at the Australian Open and fell to Argentine Juan Monaco 8-6 in the fifth set after holding a two set lead.

He said: "This has been kind of a year of comebacks. I've had a couple matches already down 5-0, in a tie-break, the guy serving down two sets to love and a break and coming back. It's been an interesting year, but I hope to keep the streak alive."

Young had posted his first career ATP-level match win last August when he defeated Delic in New Haven.

Re: the AMER DELIC thread !!!!

He was down 5-0? All the more impressive for him to fight back and win

Not at all. He won consecutive matches, so its a start. Now he just has to win more. Get on a plane to San Jose, beg for that last wildcard or be prepared to play qualies again this weekend (and he needs matches). He knows this is the type of work he has to do, and I'm sure he's not afraid of it.

No, Amer is not married. Perhaps you are thinking of someone else.
