Athens Men's Singles SF
R. Schuettler 6 6
D. Sela 4 2
Is R. Schuettler back? :)
I remember him as one of the Finalists of Australian Open,
then he continuously was loosing his position...what happened to him?

Is he back? He must be around 33 now?
Oh and depends on who he's playing in the final...

Playing Lu and IMO is going to win. His 1st round againt Berankis was his toughest match, he was down a break in the 3rd.

Rainer delivering for Deutschland, the fatherland, after Tommy boy, the traitor, surrendered to the enemy lines.
04-24-2010, 08:07 PM
Oh right, in that case I think Lu will win :D

He isn't back in terms of being relevant to the top of the game again. But he can be a top 60-80 guy for the next few years I think, because of his style of play and the shape he keeps himself in.
That AO was part of a year and a half of play where Rainer played above his normal level. Take those years out, and his overall record is WAY below 50% winning percentage. He's solid, but not spectacular at anything, and he's 33.
He can beat Lu and I think he's the favorite to win tomorrow.

Rainer took silver medal in doubles in JJOO Athens 2004. Don't forget it.
It's a special court for him, surely he remebers that got one of the most important sucess of his career there.
I've betting on Rainer all tournament just for that reason.

Schuettler will do it for the European economy.
He should hope Grigor not to be in his half of the draw.
I was talking for Rhodes,not for Athens,of course
Leftist groups have organised demonstrations during the final at olympic tennis centre.Bad atmosphere here for Germans after Merkel's refusal to help Greek economy.Hope Lu wins and saves the greek nation from another humiliation.
