I don't even know Gruber, let alone I have ever seen him playing.... only chance for Gruber is if Dent is tired and is not motivated.
But if Dent is able to play 80%, Gruber will get executed in this match. He doesn't have any experience on ATP level as far as I have seen.

thats only fair. well till melzers tonite!

bad gambler
10-13-2004, 01:45 PM
yep i'm banking on the tired bit...i think dent is going to be absolutely knacked after last week....anyway should be interesting coz gruber is pretty decent on teh hard courts and he is in front of his home crowd....hopefully will lift him to a win

Neely

I'm not so sure anymore that Melzer will win. I'm currently fancying more Schüttler to win.

bad gambler
10-13-2004, 01:52 PM
i think melzer will have schuettler covered....schuettler's form this year on hardcourt has been atrociuos and fact that melzer is in front of his home crowd will help him alot

I hope so, Neely, but I'm not getting my hopes up! I'll be rushing out of work this evening to try to catch it :)

Im hoping for a Gruber win too....

Neely
10-13-2004, 01:55 PM
yeah, the commentator just told something about Gruber:
last week he tried to get a wildcard for QUALIFYING and then he even got a wildcard for the main draw. (Koubek stuck up for him)
Ranked #633 in the Entry Ranking.
First ATP maindraw appearance for Gruber.

I'm not so sure about this, bad gambler.
Melzer didn't perform too well at home so far. In German some people even say he has a "Heimphobie", meaning he has anxiety to play in front of a home crowd.

bad gambler
10-13-2004, 01:59 PM
yeah i know...but i think it will be a close one....

Neely
10-13-2004, 02:00 PM
commentator: "Last week the tournament director came to Gruber and told him 'hey, you have the wildcard, but not for qualies, but for the main draw!' Then Gruber thought this is a joke and couldn't realize it. He could believe it a few days later though" :lol:

Neely
10-13-2004, 02:02 PM
I hope so, Neely, but I'm not getting my hopes up! I'll be rushing out of work this evening to try to catch it :)
yeah, it should start on time, I don't think that Dent and Gruber play longer than until 5 o'clock :lol:

Schüttler fought and finally broke

BTW, for Eurosport Germany Babsi Schett is co-commetating ;) :angel:

holy shit, that was impressive how Rainer is hitting the balls today
ace, forehand whip, nice volleys, dominating the exchanges most of the time
must be one of his best matches since Halle or Wimbledon

Jürgen isn't playing that worse, but his forehand sucks (like most of the time, backhand clearly stronger)
he seems to carry a burden, I have yet to figure out why he doesn't get a boost playing at home

Rainer needs to win a few matches in a row to get some confidence back. I think he'll do well next year... One great year followed by an horrendous one. There's a huge part of me that would like to see Rainer win, I just have a soft spot for Jurgen :angel:

A service winner is where the guy on the other end hits the ball but it goes out, or the serve is so hard he barely gets his racket to it.
