no...but he got to the final of Milan last year!!

look forward to seeing the draw...yes quite a few ppl have pulled out already: Henman, Grosjean, Robredo, Youzhny...as far as I know Coria is still there...but hope Mario can do well there and defend his 2004 Milan points!!!

The draw is out. Mario will play n°5 seed and defending champ Hrbaty in the first round !
If he win this match, he will face either Srichaphan or Berdych.
C'mon Mario, go one step further than last year in Milan !!

~EMiLiTA~
02-05-2005, 01:45 PM
*sigh* another bad draw...

Pernille
02-05-2005, 01:53 PM
I believe he can win against Hrbaty...They have met 4 times and Mario has won the last two... If he pulls himself together he can do it again... :D

02-05-2005, 03:12 PM

02-05-2005, 03:21 PM
i think he can do it *dance* his second round is most likely paradorn srichaphan (HAHAHAHA spelled his name right)...any thoughts?

Pernille
02-05-2005, 03:24 PM
I think he has beaten Srichaphan before, so theoretically he should at least make it to the quarterfinal...

Mario is going to play doubles with Micheal Llodra from France, and they'll play against Nikolay Davydenko and Igor Andreev in the first round...

Good luck to them...

it's no problem I think! ;)

Perhaps they don't play together just coz Ivan doesn't want to play in doubles this week ?!
I can't believe it's coz they lost in AO...

Mario will play tomorrow in the last match of the day (after the match Lopez vs Verdasco, which gonna start at 19:00 pm).

This is the only reason they are not playing. Ivan does not want to play doubles because of his hand injury and last week in Milan his lose in singles had a lot to due with that he played a long doubles match the night before. I am sure Ivan and Mario will still play Grand Slams and Davis Cup together and some other tournies.

02-06-2005, 06:32 PM
Ivan:
No problem with Mario,I tried to help Uros to play some tournaments and he is also very good player. Mario asked me to play but I explained him situation. We will still try to play as much as possible

this is what Ivan had to say about not playing in Milan with Mario.

I had ask on the official website of Ivan why he not played doubles with Mario last week and this week. Ivan gives the answer what RubberDucky gives here bove.

Idril
02-07-2005, 09:22 AM
oh no! what a bad draw! AGAIN! but as we know guys, it's never the challenges Mario has a problem with, it's the quallies:( Henman at Wimby: fine. Tsonga in Paris: impossible...

AJMOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MARIO!

it's a bit of a late start isn't it? when does he start doubles? Llodra, that's not too bad if he can't be with Ljubo

That's good...
Then they'll still play Davis cup together... It would really suck if they wouldn't... :D
