Fernando Meligeni is ready for his first Sydney match against Marin Cilic. Fininho had a good run last week in Auckland, with a though loss to Bjorkman in second round. He sold his ship and reverted all the funds to his charity institution "VAMOS FININHO", and now is traveling with an helycopter.

Meligeni said he is a little bit more prepared after the 2 Auckland matches and long hours of training (extra points from articles will help :tape: ).

In the picture you can see Fernando giving autographs in a new racket event.

Good luck to all players!

Fernando Meligeni is on 2nd round of Sydney! Today he had a though match against Croat Marin Cilic. After winning first 2 sets, Meligeni got a little bit tired mentally and phisically, as Marin won both 3rd and 4th sets easily. But with his previous known fighting spirit, Fininho took the final set to reach 2nd round. Now he faces Jonas Bjorkman again, the man who defeated him last week in New Zealand. Time to revenge Jonas :armed:

Djokovic Through In Sydney
http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2007-06/07/xin_5420604070903343106892.jpg

Sydney, AUSTRALIA-- Fourth seed Novak Djokovic is through to the Quarter Finals of the Medibank International Masters Series event in Sydney. The 20 year old Serb beat Stefan Edberg in five sets 3-6 6-3 6-3 3-6 7-6(3). It was a close match by both players, with the young Serb taking in in a tiebreaker. “It was a tough match. It’s good to get a tough match at the start of the tournament anyway. I got a bye in the first round, so this was really like a first round match for me. In the first set he managed to break my serve once to take the set. The next to sets I was mainly in control and was able to win them. In the fifth both of us played very well and neither of us were able to break serve, but I was able to win crucial points in the tiebreak, which will give me a lot of confidence going into my next match.”

The Belgrade native is currently ranked 3rd in the world in singles after a semi final showing last week in Auckland. “It was a good week for me last week, getting to the semis is always great but I want to get further this week. A final would be great and I know I’m capable of winning this tournament. I want to stay top 4 before the Australian Open. That way I will avoid some of the tough players in the early rounds.”

Djokovic is also playing doubles with Roger Federer, the pair are number 1 seeds at the event and face the Spanish-Italian pairing of Rafael Nadal and Potito Starace in the quarters. This is the first doubles tournament of the FMTL tour year. “Roger and I play well together. We have practised a lot together and it’s always been great fun, we get along well which is vital in doubles performances.”

Djokovic will take on Juan Ignacio Chela in the quarter finals tomorrow morning before taking to the court for his doubles match in the afternoon.

Fourth Seed Out
http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k89/xXxPosterGirlxXx/Novak%20Djokovic/AA.jpg

Sydney, AUSTRALIA-- Novak Djokovic is out of the Sydney Masters after a four set loss 6-3 2-6 7-5 6-3 to Juan Ignacio Chela in the quarter finals. The Serb didn't start too well losing his first service game and then losing the first set. In the second he picked up his game and took the second set to level it. The third was tight but Chela picked up his game to a new level and rushed through the last set. "I'm very disappointed. I have been playing well the last two weeks and I knew I could go further, it's disappointing, but a loss is a loss. He played very well today in the more important areas and deserved the match. I will take some good points from this week, I had a tough match yesterday and was able to take it in a tiebreak, so that will definitely stick with me. a quarter final is OK, but I should have gotten further, but it's only the start of the year."

All was not lost for the 20 year old as he teamed up with Swiss Roger Federer, the number one seeds, to beat Rafael Nadal and Potito Starace in straight sets 6-1 6-2 6-4. The pair showed their power and fantastic skills as they broke Starace's serve on numerous occasions. "This picked me up after my singles loss. Roger and I played well, we didn't lose serve at all which is always good. This is a our first tournament together, and to get to the semis is great. I'm sure we can go further. Kafelnikov and Youzhny are a good pair and I'm sure it will be a tough match."

Djokovic and Federer take to the court tomorrow first after the singles semi finals matches. “We will be ready for it. We practised this morning before our matches and I’m sure we will tomorrow.”

Fernando Meligeni is on fire now!!! Today he defeated Jarkko Nieminen in another 5-set match! "Vamos! I'm so happy with this win, i think i'll buy a ship every start of the year! My practicing there is giving immediate results!!!"

Another time, Fino won the first 2 sets and let the opponent win the 3rd and 4th ones. But he dominated Jarkko in the last set, with a 6-2 win and the passport to the semi-finals guaranteed :yeah:

VAMOS FININHOOOOOOOOOOO

6th Seed Safely Through

6th Seeded Argentine Juan Igancio Chela has advanced to the seimfinals of the Medibank International, defeating 4th seed Novak Djokovic in four solid sets. The well played match saw Chela dig himself out of numerous holes. The most important being the third set in which Chela was able to win six of the final seven games of the set after being down 4-1 to take it 7-5. It was a clear turning point in the match as the two warriors had battled to a set apiece in the the first two. Chela secured an early break in the 4th and final set, and stayed strong to finish out the match. In the post match press conference, Chela was clearly delighted to reach the semifinals of just the second tournament of the year, but also stated he knows he must raise his game if he wishes to take the title.

Next up for Chela is the always streaky American Jan-Michael Gambill, who surprised and excitied fans in his thrilling five set win over second seed Goran Ivanisevic, in which one can truly say the three faces of Goran were shown, but that bad Goran prevailed in the end, not winning a point in either of the final two tiebreaks.
