Short guys doing well on indoor hard these days:haha: Berankis and Russell are perfect examples that height is not the most important thing even in today's power dominated tennis...

takes out the 2nd American in a row and if he faces Querrey I next round I hope he can make it 3

So much respect for players who keep fighting well into their 30s. Keep going Mikey.

Very please for him!

Isn't Xaxa the man Russell beat way back in 2001 at RG to set up that fateful meeting with Kuerten? Talk about a blast from the past, I think he came back from two sets to one down to win in five.

Wow, it is strange enough indeed.

Good luck to him. A shame he lost in the first round of São Paulo last year, otherwise I would have seen the mighty playing.
