So, Max is going to start his season in Doha (if I understood him correctly). I would have preffered to see him play in Chennai. He needs to play smaller tourneys with a weaker field of participation IMO.

what do you mean?

Max reached last year QF here in Doha and has heaps points in singles to defend :mad: and he is #152 now and was far far away from MD cutoff in the entry list :o

Gu :hug: I don't want even discuss singles. If Max form is as bad as it was last year then almost every person in the singles draw will be a tough opponent. :o

As for doubles, they are facing #3 seed team but have Cermak and Dlouhy played together earlier? :scratch: I think it's another new set team with just better combined ranking :angel: well, I'm not such an expert in Czech tennis :p :angel: :lol:
so we just have to wait and see which of them has better communication and chemistry ;)

He should have played Chennai, where there's Baghdatis he could always defeat again. :lol: Well, Volandri or Hartfield would be better options in my opinion.

Cermak has never played with Lukas but Dlouhy is a great player and Cermak isn't bad himself... and if they're first timers, so are Max and Jamie... :eek:

Hey guys!

I hope everyone checked out the interview with Max on TennisRadioLive.com. It was a great interview. (Available for podcast download... sweet).

A question of mine I sent in was asked of Max!!! It was awesome! (Except the fact that the host BUTCHERED my name... haha)

It's (my-ka) NOT (mee-ka). OH WELL!!!

Take a listen everyone!

Good luck to Max in 2008!

welcome :wavey: :hug:

I haven't seen any info about possible mixed in Belarussian media :shrug: actually I haven't seen any article devoted to Max for ages :help:

:secret: but as for me, I prefer seeing Vika Azarenka focused only on singles :rocker2: she is ready to make some great damage at GS event :devil: :drool: :banana:

from Australian Open thread in Current Tournaments:
Mirnyi was a late withdrawal & will be replaced by the highest ranked alternate from the alternate sign-in (Niland). All other withdrawals were prior to the deadline & were replaced by players on the alternate list:
http://www.menstennisforums.com/showpost.php?p=6350927&postcount=1


I wonder what has happened :scratch: I also read it on the forum at pressball.by that Max was due to play against Dlouhy but then was replaced by alternate :shrug:

GlennMirnyi
01-09-2008, 08:30 PM
Max was playing the day before in Sydney... I don't think he had time to get in Melbourne and train and stuff.

A huge shame. It seems it's the last days of a great singles player and ex-top 20. I feel pretty sad.

Seriously, it's shocking how fast Max has declined. He played a great season in 2005, he still had a solid season in 2006 and in the last 14 months, he's incapable of actually beating players ranked outside the top 150.

http://www.itftennis.com/olympics/news/newsarticle.asp?articleid=18872

ITF places announced for 2008 Olympic Tennis Event
The ITF announced today that that the following six men and six women would receive ITF Places in the upcoming Olympic Tennis Event in Beijing. ITF Places are awarded to players who do not meet the direct acceptance requirements of the tournament but who, in the view of the ITF Olympic Committee, meet other criteria that would enhance the field for the 2008 competition.

Men’s Singles

Kevin Anderson, South Africa
Jonas Bjorkman, Sweden
Kei Nishikori, Japan
Nicolas Massu, Chile
Max Mirnyi, Belarus
Peng Sun, China

Women’s Singles

Maria Koryttseva, Ukraine
Yung-Jan Chan, Chinese Taipei
Ayumi Morita, Japan
Nuria Llagostera-Vives, Spain
Alicia Molik, Australia
Selima Sfar, Tunisia

The entry of these players has been endorsed by their respective National Associations and National Olympic Committees.

“Each of the players who has been awarded an ITF Place brings special qualities to the field for the 2008 Olympic Tennis Event," said ITF President Francesco Ricci Bitti. “Some of the players are young competitors from under-represented parts of the world while others are former medallists or long-standing participants in their country’s Davis Cup and Fed Cup efforts. Their desire to represent their countries in Beijing – and the desire of their countries to be represented by them – is in the true spirit of Olympic competition.”

“This is probably the best news I've had since 2004,” said Molik. “I have played in two Olympics and I have to say they're the absolute highlight of my career. Nothing comes close to playing in the Olympics, representing your country. It is the most amazing experience any individual can have. It was always a childhood dream of mine.”

“This is fantastic news,” said Jonas Bjorkman. “It was my goal to make the Olympics this year, which is my last as a professional player. It will be my third participation after Atlanta and Athens and it's my dream to end my career with an Olympic medal for Sweden."

“I'm very happy. I'm always glad to represent my country,” said Massu. “Playing for Chile is always a top priority for me, especially because of the great memories I have from four years ago.”

Why did he play doubles with a mug like Murray this season? Maybe he got paid by the Brits to do this?

It's been a while I haven't seen a pic of Max. He really looks older. He used to have the same face since his early 20s. :lol:

Hope he finds a decent doubles partner for the next season.

Max and Bopanna lead by a set and a break but still lost the match in 3 sets. :sad: It was a good week though. At least he got to end the season on a relatively positive note. :)

A Convenient Misfortune

by James Buddell

26.08.2009


Twelve months ago Andy Ram and Max Mirnyi were both in the right place at the right time. Brought together through misfortune, the duo was quick to establish itself as a top team and is now close to qualifying for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals in November.

Andy Ram was inconsolable when his partner of more than seven years, Jonathan Erlich, finally acknowledged his right elbow injury needed medical treatment almost 12 months ago. The Israelis were virtually exclusive and had contested 318 of Ram’s 329 tour-level doubles matches together since their ATP World Tour debut at Queen’s Club in 2001.

Erlich, who had carried the niggling injury through the 2008 summer swing, realised by November that it was time to go under the surgeon’s knife in order to prolong his career. The plan was to re-unite with Ram in March, but his road back to full fitness has been littered with minor setbacks.

For Ram the absence of Erlich, his best man at his wedding to Shiri in September 2006, meant he found himself in unfamiliar territory… looking for a new doubles partner. “It was very difficult to find a new partner and form a new team,” Ram began. “Jonathan is like a brother, a lifelong friend who I have known well before we started playing together.”

Mirnyi had given up playing singles after competing at the Beijing Olympics in August 2008, in order to prolong his doubles career. The 32 year old confirmed, “My family is a big part of my life and my singles game wasn’t getting any better. I felt my commitment to singles was slipping as much as my ranking.”

As a result he had begun the 2008 US Open hoping his partnership with Jamie Murray would finally come to fruition. “We entered the US Open thinking we would continue to play together,” explained Mirnyi. But after a 10th first-round exit in 17 tournaments, the pair found themselves “at No. 14 in the ATP [Doubles Team] Race, without a realistic chance of qualifying for the season-climax in Shanghai, and we parted ways”.

Two of the finest doubles exponents on the ATP World Tour had come on the market. Mirnyi was quick to react to Ram’s plight, saying: “Two weeks later, I contacted Andy knowing Jonathan was struggling with his injury.” The duo won their debut tournament, the Bank Austria TennisTrophy at Vienna in October 2008, and decided to make a firm commitment to try their luck this year.

“Because Max has achieved so much on the doubles court, I initially felt I had to be on the top of my game,” explained Ram. “But we were fortunate to have the respect of the top teams immediately. I was very lucky to start playing with Max. He is so professional and I have learned a tremendous amount.”

Erlich admits that “it was very weird at the beginning” when Ram first partnered Mirnyi, but the prospect of returning for two ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournaments in March fuelled his recuperation. “I was fit and ready to play at Indian Wells and Miami, but one or two weeks before I suffered a setback.”

But once Mirnyi and Ram had reached the BNP Paribas Open final in Indian Wells and won the Sony Ericsson Open in Miami, a tough decision needed to be made.

“Andy made the difficult call to play with me in order to qualify for [the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals in] London,” confessed Mirnyi, who missed out on the season-climax in Shanghai last year. “Certainly it was disappointing [not to qualify in 2008], having appeared at the season-ending championships on many occasions and winning the 2006 title with Jonas [Bjorkman]. Hopefully this season, Andy and I will qualify.”

A runner-up finish at the Rogers Cup in Montreal, an ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournament in August, has given Mirnyi and Ram added impetus in their quest but both acknowledge they still have a lot to learn.

“We are still developing as a team and we are still finding different aspects of our game to work on,” admitted Ram. Mirnyi, who has also partnered Mahesh Bhupathi and Jonas Bjorkman, insists that “playing more and more together has developed our understanding as tennis players and, of course, we have got to know one another better off the court too.

“The one asset we do have is that we get on well. We have been successful and blended together quickly, so that breeds confidence. With Mahesh and Jonas, I was the younger player; I was always expected to perform. But now Andy is younger, he generates energy on the court, to train harder and in matches.

“We also keep things easy and in perspective when we lose. We have a strong belief in our abilities, so are able to recover from losses quicker than some pairs.”

With this attitude it would be a fitting finale to their partnership if they were able to qualify for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals. At No. 6 in the 2009 ATP Doubles Team Rankings, they stand a good chance before Ram rekindles his partnership with Erlich.

“Max knows that I will team up with Jonathan again in 2010,” explained 29-year-old Ram, “and I think he openly supports the decision. I would like to finish my career with Jonathan.” Mirnyi confirmed, “I back that decision, but I hope we can team up again in the future."

Ram’s immediate future is to perform well at the US Open and help Israel reach its first Davis Cup final. In September, Israel will witness “one of the nation’s biggest ever sporting events” when it faces Spain in Torre Pacheco Murcia.

“Over the past few years, Harel [Levy], Dudi [Sela], Jonathan and I have become a great team,” he said. “One of the reasons is that we all go out together and have formed strong friendships. We are a family, have good connections as players and always cheer for one another regardless of the tournament.”

You wonder where Ram, who puts the birth of his son Alon [in April 2009] as “the best moment in my life”, would put such an achievement.
