tomorrow, and it will be played in Round Robin.
2 groupes of 4 teams. (if there commit no more doubles teams)
Best 2 teams from each group goes to semis.
I think it's nicer to play Round Robin because there are not so many doubles teams. I hope the players here also like Round Robin.

Super comeback from Marcos Daniel and Ernests Gulbis
...14 of march, 2-30 PM(CET)... 4 tennis players from different countries came on the second court in Doha. One English man, one Israel, Brazil and Latvian, they met each other here to play their first pro doubles match in FMTL 2007.
Wheather was hot, 35 gradec Celcium in the capital of Qatar, no clouds, only breeze. Everyone was ready to start, but stop, i forgot to present our empire, the most respectful and fair empire in this league, the dutch - tennis2006.
2-31PM(CET), the coin was tossed, Alex Bogdanovic/Dudi Sela chose heads and Marcos Daniel/Ernests Gulbis tails. Coin fall on the ground, and there were heads. Bogdanovic and Sela will serve first.
2-40. Warming up was finished, Alex chose 3 balls, and selected 2 best of them. Some words with his partner and match have been started. First point of first pro doubles match was really outstanding. Bogdanovic served 191 km/h , Daniel could only do a lob, but lob was pretty good, so Sela couldn't do a very good smash, he hit the ball not very hard, so intrigue in this point still was, but first point won for all that Alex with Dudi, after british hard volley Gulbis hit ball in the net. Initiative after that point in this game was on England/Israel side and they won the first game in their doubles career. They with yelling "COME OOON" went to the bench. With good mood they made a break on Daniel serve, after 3rd deuce. Dudi Sela won his serve very easy, and the score was terrible for BRA|LAT duet. There were conversation on the bench after 5-2 and Daniel with Gulbis decided to change tactics. Gulbis and Daniels gane was much more agressive now, some balls got into theirs opponents. The score was now 5-4, and some bruises on Dudies and Alexs bodies :smash:. But in next game, some lucky net balls helped Alex and Dudi
to win first set, but the game of Gulbis and Daniel was improving, and the second set could be much better for them.
Prognosis came true in second set, no problems, 12 aces for both and 6-0.
The third set will be the same? All people were thinking like this, but Alex & Dudi found reserve forces and made a very tough life for brazilian&latvian team. First game won southamerican/europian team, but in the second Alex with Dudi presented very nice tennis and won the game by 40-0. After that opponents were taking their serves. 2-1, 2-2. Than Bogdanovic/Sela made a break, but very fast Daniel with Gulbis won back the game, after that, all people realised that they have more potential to win this game. 4-3,4-4,5-4. And matchball on Sela serve. First serve was a little bit in out. Second was pretty curved, Gulbis repulsed ball very good - rally started. Alex made a risky shot and Daniel lob after that shot. Lob wasn't very good, but it was high. Alex needed only to hit the ball, but the sun was so bright, that he became blind and missed the ball. So match was finished. Daniel and Gulbis won the first match in their career!

You can use the same scores each time.(only one tournament) But if a player wants to change it in a tournament, it is possible. But it's not needed. You didn't lose with 6-0 6-0 because of that.

Hewitt Advances In Debut Match




http://img2.menstennisforums.com/506/8270309hewitt.jpg


In Lleyton Hewitt's debut match on the FMTL tour, he faced Fernando González in the opening round. In the opening set, Hewitt was the one dictating the points from the beginning, and eventually got the early break, which saw him hold onto and even get the security break as he cruised throught the first set, taking it 6-2.

Gonzo then started to find his form, as he blasted winner after winner, and committing just 3 unforced errors as he quickly went up 4-0, hoping to send the match into a third set. Hewitt was then able to counter Fernando's aggression, and quickly saw the momentum swing back in his favor as he was playing as well as he did in the beginning. The Australian fought as he came back to win the next six games and take the match 6-2 6-4. Hewitt will next take on Roger Federer to hope for a spot in the semifinals.

"You know, I'm very pleased with how I started today. In your first ever match on tour, it is very nerve racking, but I was able to start off great from the start. I lost a bit of focus in the second set, but Fernando was just playing some really great tennis, and there was really nothing I could do. Luckily enough, his aggression started to go away, and I was able to dictate play like in the first set. When I got it back to 4-4, he seemed to be very frustrated, and the next two game were very easy for me to win. I will have to be at the top of my game if I want to beat Roger, but I think this is the best chance I have since it's the first tournament, and this will really show who the great players are."

Bogdanovic battles from the brink to keep British hopes alive

Alex Bogdanovic completed a remarkable victory in his quarter final match against Andy Roddick after coming back from a set a 5-1 down to steal an amazing victory in an epic 2 and a half hour match.

Things started of well for Boggo when he broke the Roddick serve in the opening game of the first set, as the depth of his returns told and he put enough pressure on the Roddick backhand to fashion a break. Boggo then held to love in the next service game, before suffering a dramatic collapse, losing the next 6 games to concede the opening set, which Roddick won on his first opportunity with a delightful backhand volley.

Boggo recovered at the start of the second set though, and despite being 0-40 down, managed to dig deep to hold to level it up at 1-1. But the pressure told again, and the experience of Roddick counted with Roddick racing through his service games, and the pace of the Roddick forehand just being too much for the young Brit, as the American raced into a 5-1 lead in the second.

But then the tide started to turn, with Roddick missing a simple forehand volley at 30-30, and then with Boggo having with first break point since the opening game, Roddick netted with a forehand, and Boggo at least had a break back. But his confidence was renewed, and he raced through his service game, and then the pressure of the situation got to Roddick, with him throwing in 3 double faults in a game to hand Boggo back another break, and all of a sudden it was back on serve.

At this point Roddick’s confidence looked shot, and Boggo held serve to love, and then won the next 8 points to complete a remarkable turnaround to make it 1 set all.

And it got worse for Roddick at the start of the third, as Boggo immediately broke serve, and then held to make it 8 games in a row, before Roddick finally held after a 10 minute, 7 deuce third game of the set. And this was a catalyst for another swing in the momentum of the set, as Roddick then won the next 3 games to go 4-2 up. He had 2 points for 5-2, but Boggo came up with outstanding passing shots on both occasions, and then stole the break when a net cord went in favour of the Brit. Boggo and Roddick then both held, leaving Boggo to serve to stay in the match.

At this point, Roddick upped his game, and hit 3 blistering forehand winners to give him 3 match points, but on all 3, Boggo came up with the goods with a big first serve, not allowing Roddick to get a single ball in play. This boosted his confidence again, and when Roddick double faulted at break point in the next game, Boggo served for the match.

Surely there could be no more twists in this extraordinary match? Well Roddick took the first point when Boggo double faulted, but 4 first serves were enough, and he took his first match point by putting away a simple volley.

Bogdanovic now goes on to face the Portuguese hope, Frederico Gil in the semi finals, who had a much more comfortable run to the last 4, beating Mikhail Youhnzy 6-1, 6-1.

Gulbis makes perfect day and reaches singles and doubles semi-finals
Latvian Ernests Gulbis keeped showing all his potential on Friday action at Doha.
At the opening match of the Center Court, Gulbis was supposed to face big server Ivan Ljubicic, from Croatia. Despite not being the favorite, the young player showed personality to play against Ljubo, as he didn't stay on defense. Gulbis easily confirmed his first game of serve, and with great devolutions he broke Ljubicic's serve to lead 2/0. Anyway, the Croat elevated his level and did 4 straight games to reach 4/2. However, when the first set seemed to be over, Gulbis started to take risks and his tathic worked: 4 consecutive to the Latvian now, and a 1-0 lead with 6/4.
Excited about the end of the set, Gulbis keeped playing perfectly, serving aces and making forehand and volley winners, opening 3/0. However, as any young player would have done, he had a short lack of concentration, and this allowed Ljubicic to take the lead at 4/3. With the crowd support, Gulbis did another reaction and broke Ljubo's serve twice, winning the set at 6/4 and the match in straight sets.

Match statistics (Gulbis-Ljubicic)
Aces - 7 / 13
Double faults - 3 / 3
1st serve - 57% / 61%
1st serve points won - 72% / 68%
Winners - 21 / 12
Unforced errors - 19 / 15
Net points won - 11/17 (65%) - 9/15 (60%)

After suitable rest, Gulbis went to Court 2 to do his last Round Robin match of the doubles draw, partnering Brasilian Marcos Daniel. With 1 win and 1 loss, the duet was forced to win Nicolas Kiefer/Tim Henman and to cheer for Ljubicic/Gil, combination that would classify them to Saturday semi-final action. And that was what happened! In a terrific match, Daniel and Gulbis defeated the European duo by 4/6, 6/4, 7/6. With Ljubicic/Gil easy win over Sela/Bogdanovic, Gulbis' dream of winning singles and doubles is still alive.


Is my english good? Doing these reports is a great way of practicing for me :p

First singles semi-final at Doha started at 11-35(CET), and the biggining of the match was awfull for young Latvian player. His serve was terrible, a lot of doubles faults, unforced errors and bad volleying. And result was very objective - 6-0 Alex Bogdanovic won the first set.

Ernest had to try something new and change his game, if he want to win at least some games or even set. All crowd didn't believe that young upstart can do something with hard-working Boggo, who were assured and concentrated today.

Second set started very unexpectedly, Gulbis won long-expected game, and the nice smile appeared on his face, it was another Gulbis: motivated, concetrated and reliable. 5-1 as result. But than he relaxed and was loosing games one after another, score was 5-5, and nothing was able to save Gulbis today, but in this tough moment, Ernest took all his fighting spirit and found extra forces and won 2 games in a row, he won the second set. Bogdanovic was crushed. He spent all his power to save this set and there was no strenght for 3rd set. As a result, the third set Gulbis won 6-1, and now he is in a final. It is the main sensation in Doha,

Croatian Ivan Ljubicic paired up with Portuguese Frederico Gil reached the final in Doha.

Ettienne de Villiers picked Doha doubles draw to be played in RR system. Ljubicic/Gil were on fire in the group losing only 3 games in 3 matches! Beating Tim Henman/Nicolas Kiefer 6-0, 6-0, Marcos Daniel/Ernests Gulbis 6-1, 6-1 and Alex Bogdanovic/Dudi Sela 6-1 6-0 to reach the semis where they defeated Chilean/Argentinian pair, Gonzalez/Acasuso with ease, 6-1, 6-1.

As Ivan and Frederico defeated them without a problem in the group, they are favourites in the final for sure. However, Gulbis is playing a great tournament, playing finals in both, singles and doubles. Gulbis already defeated Ljubicic in singles quarterfinals, score was 6-4, 6-4 for Latvian young hope.
After that match Ljubicic said:
"I can't believe that guy is 18 years old. He is playing great, i really didn't expect this. He has a complete game, what is great for a 18 y/o. We can see an effect of Nikola Pilic here (laugh)."
about doubles:
"Yeah, Frederico and me are playing a great tournament together, he's better, i have to admit, he is playing singles semi final too, i mean, it's a great tournament for him too. In doubles we are doing our best, and you can see the result. We lost only a couple of games in 4 matches, we won 3 of 8 sets with a score of 6-0. We already defeated Gulbis/Daniel, the score was 6-1, 6-1, was it? Yeah, so i mean, we are definitely the favourites in the final, but nothing is over, we have to play good again. I really hope for a title here, cause i have been a bit dissapointed after my singles loss. So, i'll do my best :)"

In the singles, as we already mentioned, Gulbis reached the final, and is waiting for the winner of Gil/Hewitt. It has been a nice tournament, and the best is still to come.

First set was decided in TB, where Youzhny won 7-5, and took a lead. In the second set, Murray broke at the end to take a set with a score of 7-5. Third set was nailbitting. Youzhny made a break for a 4-2 lead, but Murray come back to tie the match at 4-4, Youzhny was also leading 5-4, and 6-5, but didn't get a match point. It went to a TB again, and this time Murray had more luck, saved a match point, and won a TB 8-6, too win a match 6-7(5), 7-5, 7-6(6).

Young Latvian Gulbis defeated Dudi Sela 6-1, 6-4.

Match finished 6-1, 6-4 in a favour of Ernests Gulbis.

Roddick def. PimPim 6-1, 6-4
Johansson took a lead, he made a break for 1-0, but then he started to feel pain in his shoulder. He decided to finish the match, but he couldn't do much. Roddick took other 6 games in first set, and took a one set lead.

1/8 final review

Ljubicic outclassed Andy Murray 6-0, 6-0!
Nobody expected this kind of a win for Ivan Ljubicic. Ljubicic was superior, and lost only 4 points on his own serve. On Murray's serve, only 3 games came to deuce, and Murray had GP only 2 times. Ljubicic's backhand was on top level, his serve was better than ever, and Murray seemed tired after that thrilling match against Youzhny.

Gulbis def. experienced Kiefer 6-0, 2-6, 6-4
Gulbis started extremly well. They were both hitting hard FHs and BHs from the baseline, Kiefer was looking for his game, and it wasn't looking good. First set easy for Gulbis 6-0.
Second set completely different story. Kiefer played much better, and take a 4-0 lead. Both held till the end of the set, and that was 2-6. It looked very weird when Gulbis took a 5-0 lead in the decisive set. 6-0, 2-6, 5-0, but then Kiefer found his game from second set, and cam to 5-4, and couldn't held for complete comeback. The match ended 6-0, 2-6, 6-4 for Gulbis.

Roddick def. Daniel 6-3, 6-4
Roddick made a 2 breaks lead for 5-1, lost one serve, and held for the set (6-3). Second set was whole different story. Marcos Daniel was 4-0 up, and it seemed it will go to the third set, but Roddick take care that that doesn't happen. He took 6 games in a row for 6-3, 6-4 win.

A.Bogdanovic def. (LL) Acasuso 6-0, 7-5

Obviously Acasuso wasn't hoping for LL spot, he wasn't practicing at all, and we could see that in first set which Bogdanovic won 6-0. Nothing much from Bogdanovic, but NOTHING from Acasuso. In the second set Acasuso had 3-0, and 5-2 lead, serving for the set at 5-3, but that wasn't enough. Great comeback from Bogdanovic, broke for 6-5 too, and without a problem held for 7-5.

(LL) Youzhny defeated Golmard 7-6, 3-6, 6-3
Other LL, Youzhny, unlike Acasuso, used his new chance, and won as a LL.
It was another tough match for Youzhny, but this time he managed to beat his opponent. Youzhny had 5-1 lead in first set, but had some problems with finishing it. Anyway, he took that set in TB.
In the second set Golmard broke for 3-1, Youzhny broke back, but then one more break from Golmard, for 4-2 lead. They both held till the end of the second set, and that was set for Golmard. Youzhny took an early lead in the decisive set, had 3-0, Golmard was back for a moment, but then Misha played his best, and won 7-6, 3-6, 6-3.

F.Gil def. M.Baghdatis 6-0, 6-0
Another outclassing! Ljubicic's doubles partner also managed to won all games in his match, against tough opponent, Cyprian Marcos Baghdatis. Baghdatis wasn't sick, and after the match he said that he didn't think he played bad, just that Gil was so superior, that he couldn't do anything. Well done for Gil, and that's enough for his quarterfinal.

Hewitt def. Feňa 6-2, 6-4
Lleyton Hewitt made an early lead for 5-1 in the first set, and it was enough to hold one more time to get the first set 6-2. Second set was way harder for Hewitt. Feňa took a 4-0 lead, but then terrible choke from him. Lost next 6 games to lose the match and the chance for quarterfinal. Well played by Lleyton Hewitt. Fena shouldn't play that bad after that advantage in the second set.

Roger Federer d. Tim Henman 7-5 4-6 6-2
Very entertaining match to see. In the first set both players lost their serve for few times. Federer was last one to break, he broke for 6-5, and then held for 7-5. In the second set, important break was at 4-3 for Henman, that was break for 5-3, they both held serves till the end of the set, so it was 6-4 for Henman. Tim broke in the first game of the third set, but he wasn't in the lead for a long time. Federer broke right back for 1-1, held and broke for 3-1. Henman held then for 3-2, and that was it for Tim. Federer didn't drop serve anymore and broke one more time to win the third set 6-2.

Quarterfinal review
E.Gulbis (LAT) def. I.Ljubicic (CRO) 6-4, 6-4
Really interesting match with a shocking score. Young 18 year old Latvian Ernests Gulbis defeated experienced Croatian star Ivan Ljubicic in straight sets, 6-4, 6-4. It started well for Gulbis, 2-0 lead at the start, but then Ljubo took 4 games in a row, it seemed like Ljubo started to play his game and that Gulbis has no chance now. Gulbis took next four games to take the set 6-4. Second set started great for Gulbis again. This time even 3-0 lead, but then again 4 games in a row for Ljubo, for 3-4. Gulbis held for 4-4, Ljubo had 2 DFs in next service game, and was broken for 4-5*. There was no comeback anymore. Gulbis won, and celbrate it properly. His first win over top 10 player.

Bogdanovic def. Roddick 2-6, 7-5, 7-5

Another big upset. Bogdanovic started with a break for 2-0, but then lost all the remaining games in that set, lost 2-6. It looked like Alex can't do anything to in-form Roddick. Especially after a 5-1 lead for Roddick in the second set. Roddick was serving for the match at 5-2, and again at 5-4, was broken both times, and then once again at 5-6 was broken, and the match was tied, 6-2, 5-7. Third set was interesting. Roddick lost serve 4th time in a row, and was down 0-2. Then he broke two times for 4-2, but again lost serve. It was all tied at 4-4 in the third. Roddick broke for 5-4 and was serving for the match 3rd time in the match. Choked it away again. Bogdanovic held for 6-5 and broke like he did in the second set, for 7-5. Shocking match.

Gil def. (LL) Youzhny 6-1, 6-1
It was 1 all in the first set when demonstration started. Gil held his serve without problems and broke two times to win a set 6-1. He was playing great from the baseline and even better on the net winning all points when he get there. Same thing happened in the 2nd set. Again it was 1-1 when Gil started playing his best game. Youzhny was unable to do anything on Gil's serve, and couldn't do anything on his own serve even though he had a pretty good percentage of first serves in. Powerfull Gil ran into his first career semifinal.

Lleyton Hewitt def. Roger Federer 6-2 6-4

Federer lost his serve twice in the first set, Hewitt was 5-1 up, and didn't choke. Second set was much harder, Swiss Roger Federer took an early lead, he was 4-0 up, but Hewitt did what he did against Gonzalez too, too refresh your memory: Gonzalez was also 4-0 up in the second after losing first set 6-2. Hewitt won all remaining 6 games to win the match 6-2, 6-4. Great played by Hewitt!
