Zverev is a good player. I expect him to be in the top 50 this time next year. It will be particularly interesting to see how he gets on on grass as he serve and volleys like a demon.

It was tough one again. And I think that Marat can beat Blake. It will be tough again. And I want Marat to win, because I want Mario Ancic in Shangai, and James Blake is a better than Mario right now. GO LJUBO&MARIO!

of course...3rd time lucky always works for marat...3rd MP, 3rd AO final, etc...well, except when we're talking about Gonzo :lol: :lol: :lol:

Zverev has about 250 points now and nothing to defend from last year. I hope he can at least make the 300/Top150 this year.

Maybe he will be back on court in Tokyo tomorrow. :yeah:

Hopefully Blake will buckle under the pressure of Marat's imposing greatness...and hopefully Marat won't buckle under...um...his own imposing craziness.

He's really good and changed his style only some while ago. He was a baseliner before. He decided to change it. I think this is very respectable. :)

I saw him this year on grass and yes, it suits his game very well. I was surprised to see he lost to Sirianni (didn't see that match) :shrug:

Mischa is a great player :D I remember seeing him in 2004 and I was shocked his progress was so slow for so long. I don't think he will be Top 50 that soon, but Top 100 is possible for him.

Well, it's tough to win a lot as a junior for such a clear serve and volleyer, CooCoo. ;) But he looks pretty good, I'm watching the match right now. :)
Tough leftie for Marat.
He looks a lot like his dad, his dad was a top player for Soviet Union. But why is he called Mischa, they could have at least write his name as Mikhail in the German passport. Or maybe it is so in the passport.

I think Marat will beat James.

I like Marat's craziness. :)

:woohoo: Now if only I could this semifinal, I would love to cheer on Marat against Blake in a match that matters. It's not streaming anywhere, is it?

I hope he ups his game here, but then again, he does tend to play better against top players. (Except Gonzo, but we won't go there.) Blake-Safin should be an interesting semi, anyway - but I'm also interested in Zverev. A serve-volleying youngster? Always intriguing.
