OK, Seb's got a bye in first round and next it's Gilles Elseneer or a qualifier. So he should be able to reach third round, but then again, you never know with Seb. Anyway, cheers & ALLEZ SEB!

Seb's playing doubles today with Kiefer.

I didn't know. Weird !
(Santoro plays in double too, with Mirniy...surprising they don't play together)
Well, Kiefer is lucky, I hope he knows ! lol

Malisse, he's the unpredictable Belgian, right? The one they keep praising for being so talented - but he's never really lived up to that potential, has he? Anyway, I hope this is a good omen for Grosjean so that our Frenchie wins. He's not been in action for quite a while, and I want him to do good now. The goal is to enter the Masters Cup at the end of the year, and to do that he really needs to perform well. Would also be nice if he went on to win something this year...

After his match (atp sources)

”I think he was a little bit nervous at the beginning but then he settled down. I didn't serve that well in the first set and he came back. He's a really good player and I just kept staying aggressive in the second and third sets.

"I didn't practice in Florida before coming here. I was in Marseille and it was dry and the weather was completely different. But you know the conditions are tough in the summer here."

Marine
07-23-2004, 06:22 AM
He beat Malisse 7/6 6/4 :)

"I played well in the tie-break and I just tried to stay focused after I won the first set. I like playing here and the conditions are different from day to night. You have to get used to it. It's easier with the heat but you don't see

(on playing Ljubicic): "He's a good player. He beat me at the beginning of the year in Doha. He's a strong man and he hits the ball hard and he tries to hit a winner almost every shot. It's going to be tough and I have to keep my serve and play strong on the return. I don't think the heat will make much difference."

hehhee good job Seb~
keep going!!!

I think Seb and Kiefer won a doubles title last year... or something like that... maybe two years before.
And that's why they were a team...
however....

okay, I have got it finally:

2002/07/28 (Mercedes Benz Cup, Los Angeles-- Doubles, F)

Seb & Kiefer defeated Gimelstob & Llodra, 6-4, 6-4!

Kiefer, "This is the fourth time we've played together and it's our second doubles title each. This gives us a little confidence to go for our singles game. It was a lot of fun playing here."

He has the break! 3/1

If he makes it to the semies he will overtake Nalbandian.. I dunno for sure though, but I didn't see Nalbandian anywere in any draw.. I heard he has injuries, that's great for Seb.. I so hope he can make it to Houston!

Crazy_Fool
07-23-2004, 11:14 PM
Drinking too much coffee is a killer, I tend to do it if I have to stay up all night for an assignment or something.

I'm not really looking forward to the wedding to be honest, its such a long day, but I guess it will be fun when I get there.
