In the doubles, Mario plays with South African doubles specialist Jeff Coetzee. In the first round, they play Thomas Vanhoudt of Belgium (also a doubles specialist) and Irakli Labadze of Georgia. Best of luck guys :yeah:!!!!

Welcome Maurue ! :wavey: Your avatar is very nice ! ;)

MARIO won 3/6 6/3 6/2
Well done Mario ! :yeah:
What he said :
"It was tough with the rain delays and I didn't play my best tennis but I am happy to pull this match out. He was confident at the beginning and I had to get used to the conditions since I've been playing indoors the last month. I wanted to shorten the points and come in on second serves and short balls. I am going to get some rest and get ready for my second round match on Thursday. I am going to take one match at a time this week and do the best I can."
The jet lag & tough conditions probably explain the score !

anybody know when he's playing doubles?
His doubles match is not scheduled on wednesday ...
but he's going to play his 2nd round match against Philippoussis today at 6:30 pm (local time). Tough match ! :rolleyes: But Mario is doing well at the moment !
AJMOO Mario !

tough match against Bryan's brothers, it's definitely :o

What Mario said on playing Blake or Spadea:
"I know I've lost to them in the past but that was a couple of years ago and I think I've improved a lot since then."

What Spadea said on playing Mario:
"He's getting better and he's coming into his own and he's more mature in his game and style. His ranking is probably the highest it's ever been and I'm looking forward to the challenge."

I definitely think Mario has the game and the confidence to beat Spadea !

So let's hope Mario will go through the final, therefore I'll be able to watch him... that would be so great !

:sad: Mario...:hug:
I think he is making progress.
What he said after the final:
Ancic: "His serve is unbelievably difficult but he surprised me how well he returned today. I knew he was serving big and I would have a tough time, but the way he returned was really impressive. I didn't expect that. I was expecting many more free points from him which he wasn't giving me."

"He got a lot of first serves in and even if he was on a second serve he was going for it. It was going 110 mph which is a huge second serve. He's a lefty so it was even harder to adjust. I haven't played against a lefty in a long time. I didn't put enough returns in and he was returning unbelievable. I tried mixing it up. I thought maybe he would lose his rhythm if I mixed it up but I was hitting a lot of bad serves and he was crossing me."

"It would be nice if I won. But I came in Sunday night and had to adjust which wasn't one of my strengths before and had a tough first match but later on played good. I played three great matches. Today he he just played better than me, there isn't much to say. I'll just keep working hard and wait for another chance in a final."
