Jurgen is seeded 3rd here and has a bye in the first round. In the second round he will play the winner of Blake/Garcia-Lopez.

He will play doubles with Phillip. His brother lost to the top seed in the qualifying. Phillip is in the main draw and plays Andujar (ESP) in the first round.

Good luck to Jurgen and Phillip in both singles and doubles

This must be it. His draw is good to reach the finals here. Hope his home tournament gives him a boost again.

Jurgen wrote that he tweaked his thigh in his loss during the doubles. He said he feels well enough to play and hopes it does not bother him in singles. Crossing my fingers he wins today.

maybe that explains why, tho he just served a love game to hold 65, jurgen has about 13 UEs, while GGL has about 3 ???

i can't help remembering last year at this time (huh? theyre playing "highway to hell") last year he was on his way to the championship and that darkhaired beauty was in the stands with nystrom :( sad. jurgen hasnt been the same player this year as last

Wow! I was out and just saw the score. Good for Jurgen winning this match against Garcia-Lopez 7-5, 6-1.

Next he plays K. Anderson. Ken has been playing well so Jurgen needs to play his best.

I think we all have noticed that Jurgen's level of play has dropped since the breakup with Mirna. She believed in him and instilled in him that could win against anyone. I was shocked when they announced they were separating. Very sad. I met her and felt they were perfect for each other.

Once again Jurgen was unable to win two matches in a row. Kevin Andersen won 6-3, 6-3. Jurgen did not even earn a break point chance in the match. The confidence he used to have in himself is gone.

Did anyone find pictures from here that can be posted here? I found some but was not able to print or save them. I would love to be able to print some for the scrap book I am making him.
