Why is the local newspaper saying it's even 3-0 in the h2h with Mannarino now? I only knew about the match in Surbiton last year.
I uploaded the stream recording because a Mannarino fan was interested, but the file is weird, it's not possible to browse through it: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=YYWFC1HU
Rather a match to forget from Philipp's perspective anyway.
He just said Mannarino was better after the singles match, didn't mention any injury or condition problem. It's so hard to get news about him.
In the German article he says everybody in Melbourne was talking him out of playing Heilbronn, but I guess it's just because of the long trip.
The information eased my self in any case. Hopefully condition is looking up next tournament in Zagreb. By the way, I thought Philipp is under contract with Nike. I'm so unexpectedly Philipp is not under contract with Nike. How about Reebok Philipp ???
Let's forget the doubles final, that totally makes up for it: "Becker sollte aufpassen, was er sagt. Vielleicht hat ihm seine neue Freundin den Blick vernebelt. Er macht uns immer schlecht."
"Becker should watch what he says. Maybe his new girlfriend is making him confused. He always runs us down."
(Becker whined again a few days ago in the media that German tennis players are shit.)
