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

is he playing RIGHT NOW against etlis/rodriguez? oh i mean:P did he play yesterday when you wrote this?
and who won?:D
10-15-2004, 02:39 PM
they must have played yesterday...but they lost to Etlis/Rodriguez: 6-2 4-6 7-6(3)...looks like it was a good match
10-15-2004, 09:58 PM
SEMIS here we come!!! :D
10-16-2004, 07:22 AM
: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!
10-16-2004, 12:33 PM
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!!!
10-16-2004, 03:40 PM
Feli's just won his semi against Sanguinetti! He'll play the final tomorrow against Guillermo Cañas!!! QUE SIGAS ASI FELI!!! A POR LA FINAL!!!
10-17-2004, 05:49 AM
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!!!!!!!!

VAMOS FELI!!!....Today's the day!!!...Show us what u got!!! :bounce:
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!!!!

10-17-2004, 01:50 PM
i'm watching it on Eurosport right now. It's 3-2 in the 3rd set for Feli. The 2nd set was bad(lost it 1-6 :mad: but the 1st was good and he seems very motivated! Vamos Feli, win your maiden title! :bounce:
10-17-2004, 02:18 PM
Feli won the third set 7-5!!!! :woohoo:
10-17-2004, 02:19 PM
I'm watching livescores and it's showing him as being 6-5 in the third now...ARRIBA FELI!!! VENGA!!!
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:

Now its 3/2 for Feli
10-17-2004, 02:42 PM
