I wonder if Felix will get a WC or have to qualify for Madrid?

Yes, he said he will play for about 2 more seasons. He had some encouraging results in Sopot, and he has had some time off and is playing in the Spanish masters, then it will be work, work and get him right for the Aus season.

I think he will get in directly to the Aus Open and that is something to build on.

it's a tournament held in Barcelona normally in December. It's for the top 8 Spanish guys and the top 8 Spanish girls...last year they couldn't hold it cos they ran out of time...that's why I'm wondering if the same thing will happen again this year since there's the Davis Cup and all...

I hope he is training his arse off somewhere getting prepared to run around the court in the Mantilla style and maybe pull of another good run.

I remember he lost a tough match to Schalken in Chennai and he isn't on the list to play there in Jan. His entry ranking was high enough and I wonder where he is going to play pre-Aus Open and if he plays here, he better not play a favourite of mine.

Since the Davis Cup final is on this week I thought this would be time to reflect on Felix's great DC performance.

Basically what happened was that Spain were relegated to the Playoffs in 1999 and they were drawn against New Zealand and they played them away on a fast Plexipave surface.

What happened was none of the big guys were prepared to travel to NZ to play this match.

Mantilla volunteered and with a team of Clavet, Balcells and Alonso they got Spain back into the World Group.

Mantilla def Mark Nielsen 6-2 3-6 4-6 7-6(2) 6-3. If it wasn't for him winning that first match and giving confidence to the others they wouldn't have been promoted.

After helping them regain World Group status he was dumped in 2000, then again the team rallied and thanked him for his 1999 efforts.

I saw that Felix is an alternate for Doha, though there are a few above him and he will have to qualify for that tournament.

Then again it's interesting since Chennai had a lower ranking cutoff and Felix could have made the main draw.

It was actually on the tournament thread, and then I went there to look and it's not there. I will try and look again.

I know Federer and Gaudio are playing.
