Rules of MTF are to 'not request scores' - especially before matches have been played! they are usually posted once they become available.

By the way the official website updates results on main page when matches are finished but do not update drawsheet.

thanks for the information. Yes Mulles plays a good tournament. Lets see if it can be even better. Its getting harder to get wins now....

Yes, Muller will have a tough match against Wang. I think Wang will win the tournament.

TankingTheSet
10-12-2007, 09:26 AM
Hmm Wang and Meffert played late last night, now scheduled early today against local players! Fortunately they had easy matches last night but I still don't like it.

Truc
10-12-2007, 10:21 AM
Muller, a local player?
Meffert got a WC for this event (because he'll play for the AS Patton Rennes in the French interclubs, as far as I know), so they're not trying to disadvantage him.

The main matches are the matches at 18:00 (more attendance) and Faurel, De Chaunac and Oger are a little bit more attractive for the "crowd", that's it.

Truc
10-12-2007, 11:31 AM
The local press is not amused by Koellerer who insulted the ballkids:
http://www.rennes-infhonet.fr/article-sport-613-aux-quatre-coins-de-l-open.html

There also are a few interviews in the videotheque now (http://openderennes.versio.fr/accueil/videotheque/var/lang/FR/rub/231.html# - mainly the Frenchies + Muller), the video of de Chaunac talking about the match against Koellerer is funny. He says that in the first set, Koellerer was playing one game normally and then tanking the next game, like playing 4 crappy dropshots in a row. And he was argueing from the beginning.
So when he started questioning a call for the 15th time in the 2nd set, De Chaunac told him to move on and play "in a pretty harsh way". After that, Koellerer stopped playing and completely tanked the rest of the match. De Chaunac means it's crazy because Koellerer plays great when he really tries.

Shocking loss for Wang.

JMG
10-12-2007, 01:22 PM
I was really surprised about the schedule. I expected Petzschner to be the first match because of the doubles. Now he is last and has to play two matches on Saturday if he wins. Also the Ratiwatana guys have two days off because of that.

Truc
10-12-2007, 01:40 PM
Still not happy about the scheduling. They did screw Wang over. Players rest times should be more important than putting local players in the evening.Wang was scheduled at 18:00 yesterday and 13:00 today. ^^
Tons of things suck about this event, but that's really not a big deal (all the more since he won 6-1 6-2 yesterday).

I was really surprised about the schedule. I expected Petzschner to be the first match because of the doubles. Now he is last and has to play two matches on Saturday if he wins. Also the Ratiwatana guys have two days off because of that.He plays Oger who is a real local, his family lives next to Rennes. Can't blame the tournament organization for scheduling him tonight and hoping to sell a few tickets, especially after ERV & Co have lost.

But I don't really get the scheduling of the doubles matches either.

What a great chance this is.

Next week he has another good chance in Kolding, even though he starts against topseed Pless.

Rennes
Kolding
Barnstaple
Aachen

What a kinda schedule :cool:

He is eager to get to the top. Hopefully he will finish into Top 150, maybe even Top 100 at the end of the year.

When is the time of cut-off for Australian Open? Possibly he still has the chance of getting a direct entry if he goes on like this

JMG
10-13-2007, 01:59 PM
He is only at 201 points for the year, because 51 will go off soon, so an AO entry is hardly possible. The great stat is that he earned 190 points in the second half of 2007, therefore has a good direct entry chance for RG and Wimbledon. :D

sounds like a good final

Truc

The articles say Muller is serving out of his mind and hasn't been broken since the first round. The second semi-final was over in no time despite the 7-5 in the first set because there were no rallies at all.
And apparently, Petzschner's scoreline was a bit flattering today, it was closer than it sounds, Lugassy was leading 4-0 when he completely crumbled out of the blue.
So for the French press, Muller seems to be the big favourite tomorrow.

(Now maybe they're a bit biased too because Muller speaks French, that's a possibility with French journalists, lol.)

Muller is a good match-up for Philipp anyway, so it would have been a disappointment if he had lost.

Wow:eek:

Magic Picasso finally wins a challenger. That will boost him at around 155 in the rankings next week. :worship:

With the points to defend in Aachen und Eckenthal there is hardly any chance to get a direct entry with good results within the next weeks.

But at least he has great chances to get seeded in Australian Open Qualification


Go on like this Philipp
