Morgan Phillips
 
This guy needs his own thread in here.

Trains at academy in Valencia, Spain, with Ferrer and Andreev.

Started the year at 578 in the rankings.

Expect this guy to be top 300 by the end of the year.

:yeah: Morgan def. needed his own thread!

The guy seems to be moving up the rankings at a good pace, getting into the top 300 would be a nice achievment.

Is the dude in your avatar about to serve a cabbage?

Morgan gained 7 places in the 5th March World Rankings update...

He now sits at 568 with 40 points.

Its Italy F4 he plays this week, but the bad news is he has drawn top seed
Pablo Andujar of Spain who is ranked just outside the top 200.

Real tough one

When the going gets tough Morgan Phillips gets going!

He beat Andujar! You beauty! The score was 1-6 6-4 6-0.

It looks like having been initially blown away Morgan fought his way into the match. worked his opponent out, and then squeezed his weaknesses!

Good one, Morgan. ;)

Re: Morgan Phillips
 
So Morgan is leading Phodos Kallias 6-2 4-0 in R2 when he retires with what has been described as a "broken knee"

:mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

Re: Morgan Phillips
 
uuh, well (I thought it was more bad)...
Nice thread, I'm a big fan of him too, since I met him with his trainer and Pablo Andujar last year...
I hope this year he'll reach the top 300 as you said! He deservers it!
But now, best wishes Morgan! I really hope you'll get better soon! ;)

Re: Morgan Phillips
 
Have you seen him play Giuletta?

We love him in Britain but rarely does he play anywhere but Spain or Italy so we never see him!

giulietta 04-04-2007 12:41 PM

Re: Morgan Phillips
 
Yes, I saw all his matches (and some trainings) in Genoa, because I worked at that tournament so I was always there... I met him, and especially Francisco Fogues, his trainer (he trains Pablo Andujar too, so I met him too), we talked every day...
I know he doesn't play in GB very often, because, as you said, he lives and trains in Valencia (he speaks Spanish perfectly, if you're not Spanish it's hard to understand he's not!)...I'll saw him again 2-3 times this year...
I can post some pics of Genoa... excuse me if the quality isn't so good and they're big, but imageshak doesn't work for me now and I couldn't resize them on tinypic (I don't know if it's possible)












they are all of September 6th, training and double (with Pablo) against Lorenzi/Chadaj.... the lost :(
in the last one there was me near him, but I cut me... hehe
