There is an article about Marsel on the ATP website:

http://www.atpworldtour.com/News/Ten...ner-Ilhan.aspx

US Open

Ilhan Creates History For Turkey
Day 1
by Paul Macpherson | 31.08.2009

Marsel Ilhan created history at Flushing Meadows Monday when he became the first Turkish player to ever win a main draw match at a Grand Slam tournament. In truth, Ilhan had created history late last week when he won three qualifying matches to become the first Turkish player to ever take his place in the main draw of a major. Upon qualifying, Ilhan set himself the goal of reaching the third round and is now half way there after rallying to beat experienced Belgian Christophe Rochus 3-6, 6-3, 3-6, 7-5, 7-5 after serving 15 aces and breaking serve eight times.

Ilhan, 22, was born in Uzbekistan but moved with his mother to Istanbul five years ago for a better life and to further his tennis career. “I love Turkey very much and I do everything for Turkey. I have Turkish roots, I have so many friends there and the countries are very similar in their cultures. And the Turkish Tennis Federation has supported me for the last two years, which has allowed me to travel with my coach [John Uner]. I couldn’t find a sponsor in Uzbekistan.”

Ilhan, who lost his father at 14, says that he could afford to play only a handful of domestic tournaments each year and that finding money for equipment was a constant struggle. “My family lived on about $50 a month, so there was no chance to travel to tournaments. Racquets, balls, string, courts… everything was a problem. String was the biggest problem. It was so expensive and there were times I couldn’t practise because I couldn’t get my racquet strung. Balls were also a problem. I couldn’t afford to practise with new balls before a tournament. And we just had one indoor court in Samarkand, with 20 or 25 guys wanting to play.”

“I think if I had the opportunities that many players have, that I could be a Top 50 player by now. But I want to play for a minimum of 10 years, so I have time. Now that I have had this success I want more, more, more. “

In the second round Ilhan will play big-serving American John Isner.

LOL!!!! Who is this guy in orange shirt on the video? Is it his coach? He was talking to him on russian, or more exactly, it was russian obscene language.
He said something like "Well done. But the last game! You had to f...k this f...king last game (he means - to end this game with very strong shots - oh yeah, russian obscene language is very rich ), what the s..t you did there, hell!"

I had no idea. that is hilarious. No the guy in the orange shirt is nat his coach. His coach is tall and has a shaved head, probably the guy to the right of the orange shirt guy. he must be a friend or just another crazy russian.

Then, a friend I believe. He was one of the first Ilhan hugged after match. And I think he is Uzbek - he looks like Uzbek, and a lot of Uzbek people speak russian even without any accent. I suppose Marcel also have to be very fluent in russian.

He looks turkish for all I know . Marsel also speaks russian. He was on one of the minor/sports oriented turkish national channels with his coach right after he came back from New York. He said he wants to improve his English because he had to speak a lot during US Open. He is also improving his Turkish, as far as I'm concerned he speaks turkish fine, but it's a little broken. but I would not say he has a foreigner's accent. Of course he's been living in Istanbul for a long time now. I think he understands much better than he speaks. Anyways, Marsel actually looks like a very typical Turkish young man. If I didn't know he was Uzbek, I would have no idea.

Hi! I've seen Marsel play a couple of times now. For the first time at the USO, and I am watching him again as he plays Melzer. I really like his game and think he will become a favourite of mine in the future.

Can anyone tell me how I should pronounce his name though? Thanks!

Marsel lost to Jurgen Melzer
His name (Marsel Ilhan) is pronounced MAR-(as in March)-CELL ILL-HON-(as in Honey). The CELL and ILL are a bit more flat and shorter than English but I don't really know how else to explain.
Nice to see a possible ne fan How is your name pronounced by the way, Poka??
