Good to see Colin Fleming doing well here both in the singles and doubles. Watched him up here in Oban at the local Scottish Grand Prix event in July which he ended up winning. Good luck against Fischer!

Two wins for Fischer over Fleming ;)

FischOss
09-14-2008, 02:19 PM
Martin won 2:6 7:5 3:0 ret.

The story behind: Martin was down 2:6 4:5 and Matchpoint against him. Until this, he had no Breakpoint. But as always he fighted until the last point, broke him for the 5:5 and again for the 7:5... Then again to lead 2:0 in the third set, after the 3:0 the opponent decided not to play until the end.

Two Future-Wins in a row additionaly on in the doubles. This turnament he won today the third time in a row.

Now he has the honor to play for Austria in the Davis-Cup...

He won't get to play a match next week though. Peya is the better man.

Have you ever heared something about a "dead rubber"?

And an other question: Why still have Maximilian Abel in your Signature? He is in jail for robbery and because he used the services of prostitutes and couldnt pay... He blew his tennis career and after that he messed up his live...

JMG

1. No one gives a fuck about a death rubber and there shouldn't be any dead rubber next week anyway.

2. Abel is a great, charismatic and entertaining tennis player, definitely one of my faves. I've seen him live many times. I added him back to my signature couple of weeks ago, because I don't like the amount of negative and imcompetent comments about him and want to show that he still has fans.

3. You sound very arrogant when you talk about your Fischer. It sounds as if you want to indicate that Jeanclaude retired without being injured, that he retired just because he was losing.

JMG, you can say he is charismatic and entertaining, but Abel is not a great player ;) Never had Top 150 potential, from what I've seen.

JMG
09-14-2008, 05:05 PM
Top 150 for sure, even people like Smeets are in there at the moment. Enough people who are involved in tennis are saying that he was one of the biggest German hopes in the last ten years.

Smeets can play very well :shrug: I've seen it from him, but not from Abel. But then again, I probably never saw him anywhere near his best, considering he hasn't been playing that seriously for the last few years.

I've seen about 10 matches, for example a 63 62 over Junaid. What an incredible performance that was. He has one of the biggest forehands in Germany. 5 years ago even the Federer fans were afraid of him:

shit, Abel breaks back!

4-3 C'monn Rogz, FOCUS!

4-4 f-ck, he had 3 bp there!!!!

Commonnnnnn!!!! this kid's a qualifier and you're letting him in! :mad:



After all, he wasn't even far away from the top 150 once and there's no doubt among the tennis experts that he could have done better than that.

Wow, what a polemic behind this Abel stuff, I didn't know about this.

I remember seeing him playing a challenger in Brazil at TV in 2002. I just don't remember if he was or not a good player :tape:
