Actually I would love to see Frank win myself because I don't like all of Levine's country switching, but as you know I picked Levine.

You're in the drivers seat in singles right now - but you need Frank to win a set so you should cheer for that at least.

In my 4 years of managing this tournament, a seed has always won the singles title

Frank gave Jesse a breadstick and a place in a final for Mae. Hope he gives me and my team mate, the same place in the final, by winning 1 more set ! Lets go Frank!!!

Oh well. All comes down to the final and 3rd set... Frank was a break up very early in the 2nd set (*1-0) but didnt capitalize it

Maybe our game manager is tired of me talking about American Tennis players! Or maybe since I made that remark about Levine switching countries he thought he would make me switch countries Seriously it was probably a typo, but after seeing the OOP I really needed a good laugh anyway!

Meet your singles finalists


Qualifier Federer in 2

1. Tell us about yourself
My name is Yoni (short for Jonathan), 18 years old. I'm a fan of Roger Federer , but my 3 faves other than him are David Ferrer, Stanislas Wawrinka and Tommy Haas.
Born and raised in Israel . I've never played tennis professionally but I follow it very closely.
I'm a professional table tennis player . Right now a student (computer science) in university.


2. You've reached the final here in Dallas - what has been key to your success?
Well, I was just doing my best to check the stats of each player and make informed decisions. Can't say I didn't have some favorable differences as well.


3. How well do you know your opponent and what do you expect in the final?
I don't really know Mae well, but the number 2 seeding suggests I'm gonna have a very tough match. Hopefully I can come through.


4. What are your goals for the rest of the TT season?
Well since I'm pretty new, my ranking is too low to qualify to ATP events. My goal is to climb the rankings high enough to be a be to qualify to main draws of ATP events. I think I need to achieve top 100 for that.


5. If you could have dinner with one tennis player, who would it be? And if you could then go out to a bar with another tennis player, who would it be?
Dinner - Roger Federer. Bar - Andy Roddick. (assuming you mean men only)


6. Tel Aviv is one of the world's coolest cities . If the other TT competitors here had only one night there, what you would recommend to do?
Never lived in Tel Aviv so I'm no expert , but it's really mostly about the night life there. I'd probably just find a great place to hang out and spend the evening. It's a fun city. (Manager's Note: The bar and restaurant at the Hotel Montefiore is fantastic )



Number 2 Seed Mae

1. Tell us about yourself
Really there isn't much to tell. I have been a member of the Forum since Sept. 2005, but didn't start playing TT until the last part of June of last year.


2. You've reached the final here in Dallas - what has been key to your success?
I'm interested in the success of my partner not in my success at all. He is a very nice person who is so easy to get along with and he just started TT this year. When we first teamed up he had no points in Doubles and my goal was to get his Doubles' ranking started and we have already done that. And now find ourselves in our 2nd Doubles Final. This will be my 6th Doubles Final since I have been playing TT, but I haven't won yet!


3. How well do you know your opponent and what do you expect in the final?
I don't know my opponent at all. And the Final I expect to be a mess because there are just too many American players left in the Tournament! And you never can tell what American tennis players are going to do!


4. What are your goals for the rest of the TT season?
To continue to add to my partner's Doubles points so we can start playing TT together at the ATP Level.


5. If you could have dinner with one tennis player , who would it be? And if you could then go out to a bar with another tennis player , who would it be?
I would go to dinner with Andy Murray and then go to the bar with Rafa


6. Any parting thoughts for the rest of the competitors from this challenger this week?
Everyone has been really great and I have really enjoyed this TT. I wish all of them the best of luck in the future. You are a wonderful TT game manager and I wish you had the time to do more TTs!
