I have high hopes in Niels Desein. He reached the final at Grade A in Milan and this week he has won the Astrid Bowl in Charleroi (Belgium). He only lost one set during the tournament and defeated Donald Young in the final very easily.

R1 bye
R1 Nicholls (Aus) 6-7, 6-3, 6-2
R3 S Tarasevitch (BlG) 6-2, 6-3
QF Clayton A. (USA) 6-2, 7-6
SF Ball C. (USA) 6-3, 6-4
F D.Young (USA) 6-3, 6-0

here are some pictures

I've discovered Raony Carvalho last sunday at RG, but he had lost, except in doubles...then I saw Yannick Thivant, a very (handsome) talentuous french player: but he lost too vs M.Cilic, and then I saw Jeremy Chardy's match: he had lost!! :sad: I am the one who kept bad luck for them?! :rolleyes: But how were these players talented (and soooo handsome too!! I can't forget RG juniors! :( But, I am NOT a sexual maniac: these guys are all older (few months actually :angel: ) than me!!!!)

Cilic - (5) Bubka 7-6 6-2

:worship: :wavey: Let's go Marin in the 1/2


Did someone saw how Cilic palys? What's his style and which is his favorite surface?


1/4 AUS Open and 1/2 (maybe more) in French Open :eek: Not bad for a 16 year old.

I doesn't know many things about him, except that I saw him last tuesday vs Y.Thivant (FRA), and he was really brillant, his serve was quite strong and he moved very quickly (whereas my french player was not as fast as Cilic), he tried some revers in front of the net wich were efficient, so this player got talent,he'll be good in the future I think.

I knew about Iva, who can forget that, I know, wrong choice of words. :o
Anyway, congrats to Marin :worship: , I was disappointed with all the Croats going out pretty early in the tournament, but he made it all up.

It was a great match, even it was played in 2 sets only, Cilic was very impressive :worship: , he's so strong in his serves! Anttal Van der Dum (great player too, I saw his match vs J.Chardy) was under his control! But they seemed to appreciate and respect each other, it was funny to see them in interviews with the croatian/neerland press! ;)
