Graciosa is a really nice club. I tried to get a membership during the year I lived there to play some Golf. No chance for an expat to get in there except you pay 25.000 USD... I am looking forward to that event, although the entry list isn't to good. At least my favourite player Meffert plays

Action Jackson

Serve it out Blaz.

Nathaliia
04-19-2010, 04:46 PM
Felder is a poor man's version of Marcos Daniel. He owns the futures level but can't get a step ahead, like Daniel can't find himself in ATP.

FrankSolitario
04-19-2010, 04:55 PM
we all know that tennis at those levels is a mental matter; the point is that you can't shit your pants in a challenger's first round and Felder is one of the absolute champions of that
one of my favs Mischa Zverev is the Atp leader of that; i recall to mind at least ten matches where he was leading 5-0, 5-1 or 5-2 in the second or third set and then lost
what a shame for such a talent

Luinir
04-19-2010, 04:56 PM

Kavcic wasted so many mps...

Action Jackson

Kavcic serving out matches always a fun experience.

FrankSolitario
04-19-2010, 04:59 PM
It's simply a joke match
And a joke was also Alcaide-Kavcic 6-1 6-0
You just can't get what's going on with some category of players...

Luinir
04-19-2010, 05:03 PM
Now, Kavcic wasted so many bps... Felder 6-5 final set.

Where are you getting the scores from?

Boreas
04-19-2010, 05:05 PM
Let's watch Kavcic drop out of top 200 if he keeps losing like that. He has huge points to defend in the next few months and he has done very little to defend them at the beginning of the year

Scores are on the online bookies sites bwin, bet365

And Blaz will be falling out in the splendid company of Łukasz Kubot.

Thanks for the rep you sent me a few days ago ;) hopefully I can get some people for help and it'll be running :D

Action Jackson
04-19-2010, 05:12 PM
Kavcic has played too much tennis already, he has his main goal of reaching direct at Roland Garros, only playing 1 more event before it.

He can have fun in Brazil, boo hoo as long as he plays well, then the ranking will look after itself.

Boreas
04-19-2010, 05:16 PM
Apparently he's also splitting up with his coach and is looking for another one.

Bedene, Berlocq :worship: And Chino Miranda is back :rocker: impressive i quallies and last week should have won a match too but was forced to retire.
And Souza :o Seriously, I thought he'd get his act together here :o

So Alcaide and Alves got their revenges. Always dangerous to predict the matches that happen week after week, often reverse scores in such clashes :p

From what I have seen Knittel is a decent CH player with some enourmous returns. But he isn't experienced enaugh to show 2 weeks in a row. You could see already in M:Daniel match that he was tired( and choking). Don't forget, Knittel played qualies the week before and reach to the final. Even to weather condotions is he not used to. Someone like M.Daniel who reaches every 2nd week a final and taht for years can better handle the leck of concentration etc...

Rain delay. I wonder if they will go indoors.

Filo V.
04-24-2010, 04:30 PM
I would assume they would go indoors, let's see what they do.

Massu definitely tanked to get to Tunis. Meffert has his moments, but that is like a classic tank on Nico's effort, no way Nico should or would lose to a player of Meffert's level otherwise, especially with the score 6-2 6-4. He didn't get to Tunis on time, so his plan failed anyway.

By indoors, is it indoor clay or hard?

Exactly what I was thinking before, if he wins this event, it will pad any drop in the ranks he might have after May. He would have won 160 points in 2 weeks, with 142 dropping off in the next month. Just one really good event, or a couple of solid ones in May should prevent him from falling out of the top 100.

What Marcos needs to do is start performing better on the ATP tour, like he was showing potential of doing last summer.

D.Meffert has won 4:0 ret... Very strange that M.Daniel gave up, because in his interview today on www.tenisbrasil.com.br he said that he adapted well to the indoor conditions and that he came with a good rhythm from Blumenau. I think M. Daniel will survive his loss and great week for D.Meffert. One of the fairest players at challengers. Wotking hard and always friendly to anyone. Sad that he always has some inhury problems. Hope he can keep his form and shows something of it in Europe. He is defenitley a Top 200 (150) player.

Filo V.
04-24-2010, 11:30 PM
Marcos probably just didn't want to play anymore. Didn't want to have to play indoors, and Meffert is a decent indoors player, and had some niggling injury that was annoying him.

Anyway, this is a good week for Dominik and some important points for Marcos, and I still expect Alves to beat Mello, and win the tournament now it's indoors.

LucasFG
04-24-2010, 11:31 PM
I guess Mello should beat Alves on clay or hard.

But Daniel doesn't play well on fast surfaces. And also Meffert used to play hard before his knee problem. So, advantage for Meffert. Maybe a surprise here.

PS: Daniel is with a problem in his left leg because of the eight straight games.

If it is on indoor hard, then I think the final is going to be Alves and I am 50-50 split on Daniel and Meffert. That's a big advantage for Alves and Meffert, who would be underdogs on clay.


Look here: http://www2.uol.com.br/tenisbrasil/diaadia/ult138u44550.htm

It is a photo taken indoors and you cleary see that is clay!

M.Daniel commented that the surface indoors is very fast. Especially compared to those due rain etc. heavy clay courts outside.

Gosh, he said that is left leg was not good.
The change for the hard surface did the lesion get worse faster.
Pitty.

Result on Mello x Alves?

No man, the QF was outdoor.

Just the Meffert x Junqueira and Daniel x Alcade held place on the indoor court.

PS: Problems for Davis Cup, i don't think the coach is going to risk with this Daniel's problem

Ok, so the debate is over, it's clay!!!! Good that whole situation is settled.

Hopefully Marcos isn't too badly hurt; good decision for him to retire. Mello is better than Thiago, but I think a very fast surface fits Thiago's game better. We'll see what happens. I guess it's 50-50 for me.

I can't find any live scoring unfortunately. BET365 isn't showing it.

I guess I shouldn't be surprised Mello won, he's been impressive this week, I did think the faster play would have helped Thiago, though.

Meffert is good on fast surfaces, but supposedly he is dealing with injuries that have prevented him from playing on them. Add to that the form of Ricardo, and the fact it is in Brasil, I expect Mello to win it all tomorrow.

Agreed. These challenger events are pretty funny lately. Wouldn't surprise me to see a rain delay tomorrow and Meffert destroys Mello. That's the way it's been going.

Challenger events are all the same players week after week beating up on each other. Your turn, my turn to win. There is a reason they are not on the regular tour. There are also good challenger players like Riba and Dogopolov that are great in challenger events, get into Tour qualies and do well, then get the exit time after time in the 1st round.

Why is it a joke? The organsiators trying their very best. You know how much voluntary work is in such event? In South America is fall right now, that is the reason why there is sometimes rain. But absolutley nobody can be responsible for the weather. How many players didn't come to Europe this week because of the ashe? Yes, many.

But maybe next time we suggest that everyone has to play in the Sahara or indoor only so that you won't lose your bets:devil:;)

And even 65-35 for me :cool: Meffert had a great week anyway, but it's the final, all the due factors will side with Ricardo... who isn't bad at fast conditions either, didn't he win an ATP title on hard when I was still a little girl playing Barbie dolls? :scratch:

Mello won Delray Beach back in the early 2000s. Interesting how he was in the top 100 as a young guy and now as a veteran has climbed his way back in there. He's good on fast surfaces, and probably better on hard than on clay.

Meffert has had a surprising and great week for him, but this tourney has Ricardo's name all over it. I wonder how Mello will do outside of Brasil, since his results haven't been too great outside of his country this season.

Yes, Mello is clearly a hard court player. In brazilian events he is the master on hard, but not so good when he plays on clay. This year he is doing well outside Brazil, he reached the main draw of IW (R64) and Miami(R128).

But the problem is that he is not phisically strong, and does not have powerful balls.

Yeah, I knew about his results in Miami and Indian Wells, I guess I should have said it differently, his results in Brazil are better than they are elsewhere, but qualifying for both Masters series in the US is impressive. We agree he is better on hard, his results speak to that, and that's what he admits as well. I have noticed how well he does in Brazilian hard court events, I remember seeing him a few times, he's short and a counter-puncher but has a decent serve and variety. I wonder how well he is going to do now he is in the top 100, and if he can stay there permanently.
