in an attempt to revive this forum, I'm making a thread for Feli's performances in Vienna. He's now into the quarters after beating Calleri in the first round and Ulihrach in the second round. In the quarters, he'll face either Horna or Schüttler...hopefully he can make it to the semis!!!

He's also playing doubles with Albert Costa and they won their first round against Cañas/Chela...they now play Etlis/Rodríguez

Vamos Feli!!!

:woohoo: Feli is playing the semis against 32-year-old Italian veteran Davide Sanguinetti! GOOOOO Feli :bounce: !
About their head-to-head record it is 0-0 as they have never played each other before, but hey, Sanguinetti is 123 in the Race while Feli is 36!

yes! Feli certainly has the easier semi...it's a GREAT opportunity for him to get to the final...and perhaps even win it!!! he really needs to win a tournament soon...wouldn't it be great if it were the Vienna gold series?! VAMOS FELI!!!

I am so happy that he is going to the FINAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so happy that I got to watch him in his first ATP Final ever at Dubai. It was awesome!! But since he didn't win there....now is the time for him to be declared the Vienna Champion and raise that trophy high!!!!

I wish him all the best today!!!!!!!!

well this is his second final of the year and both tournaments have been gold series so that's really good. Unfortunately he couldn't win in Dubai against Federer...but maybe just maybe he could win in Vienna against Cañas. I really hope he can do it!!! The match is going to start in about 1.5 hours...I'll be watching the livescores!!! VAMOS FELI!!!!

Try this for LIVE scores:

http://www.sport1.at/pub/Tennis/Ticker_at/Aktuell/KonferenzInhalt.html

I hope it works. Where it says *Aktualisieren* refreshes the scores. If that fails to show up then just hit your keyboard refrech button. But the site has point-for-point

We are not getting it live :sad: But we do get two hour highlights on British Eurosport later on :worship:

VAMOS FELI

Feli has lost his serve *groan* Well, maybe he is supposed to win in five? Maybe the odd numbers are for Feliciano??? You know, Set 1, 3 & 5

FELICITACIONES for FELI from me too!!!!! :bowdown:

He thoroughly DESERVED IT, MY GOSH WHAT A MATCH, FINALLY PROVED HIMSELF, couldn't have done it in a more exciting way, ahh!!... In some moments in the end I felt like in the RG final!!!...I thought he got put off with himself in the 2nd and 4th set and I really dont know why, maybe he wanted to play a 5th set??? ;) :rolleyes:

...Lets hope he'll carry this great play and attitude to Madrid, might be somewhat tired I imagine, but gosh, is he on a roll!!!!....WELL DONE GUAPO!!!!!! :clap2: :bowdown: :woohoo:
