He hasn't given up on playing tennis again. The last time we spoke about his shoulder was a week or so before Christmas and at that time he was planning to give the Waikoloa Challenger a try at the end of January and see how that went. I spoke to him verrry briefly on Saturday, but he's got a cold right now and wasn't really in the mood to talk much. He is coaching and giving lessons at the Holua Tennis resort in Hawaii, in the meantime.

Go to Hawaii, call and make an appointment, write a check for about $150. Bring your racquet and tennis clothes.

Jan-Mike has a WC into Delray Beach. He is playing in the Main Draw Elimination Round, so a win would put him through to the RR. He plays Teimuraz Gabashvili of Russia. A win would not only be an obvious boost, but also guarantee him at least 2 matches in the RR. However, I am just hoping he plays and feels good, injury-free.

JMG also got a WC into doubles, with Rainer Schuettler. They play Simon Greul and Kevin Kim, a very winnable match IMO.

6-7, 4-6 unfortunately - but nonetheless a valiant comeback in my opinion. JMG had his chances, and broke his opponent once. He unfortunately hit a DF to give his opponent match point, and couldn't hang in there any longer. Good effort buddy, hopefully he and Rainer can do well in the doubles!

Thanks for the info. I hope he gives himself credit for this effort. He did a fine job in his first full match on tour since last August, and I hope that this is the first of many matches in 2007 (but he'll have better results next time).

On to the Doubles!

DELRAY BEACH INTERNATIONAL TENNIS CHAMPIONSHIPS
Gabashvili defeats Gambill at Delray Beach ITC
Despite being eliminated by Telmuraz Gabashvili, Jan-Michael Gambill said `I gave my all and I had fun.'
BY SANDRA HARWITT
Special to The Miami Herald

In the past, Delray Beach has been a lucky location for Jan-Michael Gambill.

At one time, the 29-year-old Gambill was considered a potential tour titan, someone who had the capability of doing great things on a tennis court, not to mention being considered a tour heartthrob.

He certainly showed signs of success when he reached a career-high ranking of No. 14 in 2001, and captured two of his three career titles here at the Delray Beach International Tennis Championships in 2001 and 2003.

But during the past few years the now No. 687-ranked Gambill has been hampered with severe right shoulder tendinitis, an ailment for which numerous MRIs have indicated there is no surgical solution.

On Sunday, Gambill nearly created another serendipitous Delray moment for himself, but eventually fell short to Russian Telmuraz Gabashvili 7-6 (7-3), 6-4 in the main draw elimination round, part of the 32-player round-robin format the tournament adopted this year.

Gambil has played little tennis of late, only taking to the court for five matches last year. He played in two Challenger events -- Waikola, Hawaii, in January and Binghamton, N.Y., in August -- and reached the third round of his sole ATP tournament appearance in Washington, D.C. last July.

The fact that people have questioned why he's attempting to continue playing comes as no surprise to him.

''I would ask those people why not, and I would ask those people if they've ever been in my shoes?'' Gambill said. ``No is the answer. I love this game and I love to play, and I had a great time on the court.''

Tournament Director Mark Baron is not one of the skeptics who question Gambill's desire to keep playing.

Having always been a soft touch when it comes to fulfilling players' wishes, especially players who have been loyal to his event, Baron granted Gambill's request for a wild card last week.

''I can't thank Mark Baron enough for giving me the opportunity to play this event,'' Gambill said. ``You never really deserve anything and I don't expect anything. He had a little faith in me. Unfortunately, I didn't win but I gave my all and I had fun.''

Gambill's hope is for his shoulder to feel good enough to give him a few more turns on the pro tour, and he remains convinced he is still tour-level talent.

He also has decided to jump-start his retirement plans, recently starting the small tennis academy he dreamed of for the future at his home in Kona, Hawaii.

''It's part of one of the things I wanted to do when I wasn't playing anymore anyway,'' he said. ``I figured since I'm not doing anything, I might as well start doing something now.''

In other play, Romanian Andre Pavel won his main draw elimination round match 6-3, 1-0 when Ilia Bozoljac of Serbia retired with gastroenteritis.

RESULTS

Yes boys They won 62 46 14-12 (match TB), obviously facing several match points in the breaker, they were also 0-3 in the TB to start with so did very well to recover. First pair through to QF.

They play the winner of Auckland/Huss [4] and Delic/Kendrick in the QF. Probably play Thursday.
