Hi again, I still haven't won any GS title. Who could help me to win one in doubles? Any suggestions?
The clay court season is coming up and I will play Monte Carlo with master Pablin.

Hi everybody, let's hope for a good IW and Miami the upcoming weeks. Maybe it's my last chance to become number one in singles again. It's been a long time since my last entry and in the meantime I've destroyed FiBeR several times. The sad thing about those last two years is that GustavoM_Fan still hasn't recovered and now even considers retirement. I mean it is a class move if you end your career on a high, like for example Scarecrows did. But right now felip would retire as a failure and that's embarrassing. I think he should at least give it a try for 1-2 more years, because he is good enough to retire with a good ranking.

My 12-2 run in singles ended after Young lost in a tight match against Björkman. I got 0/4 in my SF in Memphis and I must say at least Becker over Darcis was a big mistake I made.
16th February 2008
I did a good job in Delray Beach. In the QF I was down by one, and then anticipated every single pick by my opponent. I made my picks so that I needed Hartfield over Reynolds. I guess most of you know that he wasted a mp on serve, but that's my luck.
I decided to put TMJordan in my "Real Top 10".
7th February 2008
I'm the singles champion of Wroclaw! Quality TT picks of the week:
Golubev over Serra and Vliegen over anyone
On Sunday it's Daviscup time for me and I play against Huff. We look like the favourites in most matches, as we also have Hotzenplotz and ZackBusner in our team, while Romania has no quality TT player maybe except Huff.
22rd January 2008
Bad AO for me. I lost in the second round due to an unlucky SR order. My quality pick Istomin over Lacko was outstanding, but didn't help me enough. Should have picked the usual 3-1 instead of 3-2.
Today I play Fiberin for the first time. My picks are quite good, so it shouldn't be a big problem.
8rd January 2008
Game over in Sydney. In the first round I beat "real" top 10 player Sheva easily. The main reason why I put him on my top ten list was that he won many doubles events with a weak partner like savestheday (see 'biggest overachievers'). In the second round I lost to another top 10 player Hotzenplotz on SR, so simply bad luck there. In doubles Bolar Bolabi couldn't send picks for Sunday and we also didn't have the luck to get two LLs. The Australian Open might be one of the last bigger tournaments for the Bolarman, who has/had a lot of points to defend in January and February and would struggle on the challenger circuit or in ATP qualies.
Quality TT picks of the week by me: Martin over Devilder, Tursunov over Wawrinka
Schedule: Australian Open, Heilbronn Challenger, Wroclaw Challenger, Bergamo Challenger or Daviscup

Hi! I started the season with a 2/10 in Adelaide and lost my match. The Monday was full of weird scores and the fact that a lot of mugs scored high on this day proves my point. Still there were 2 or 3 wrong picks I could have avoided by better thinking and I have to do this in the future. Tomorrow I have to send picks for Sydney qualifying(?!) in doubles, which is a disgrace. Schedule: Sydney, Melbourne and then probably three challengers in a row.
Happy birthday to Mara_M

Hi! The new season will start in 2 weeks and I'm already motivated. I prepared mentally for next year with players from Argentina and Greece and think it will help me to get more success in 2008. At the moment it looks like Adelaide will be my first tournament, followed by Sydney and Melbourne.
3rd December 2007
I didn't win any title the last couple of months and today I reached a new low. I lost to Jeronimo in the New Delhi II challenger. Against this fucking clown. How is that possible? The answer is easy: Paukku got fever and had to retire. Rastogi was shitting his pants as well.
The next tournament for me should be Adelaide.
27th May 2007
I lost the doubles semifinal in Pörtschach. Now we have Roland Garros and I just have to fight hard there. I'm playing Belco in the first round, which should be a good draw for me. I've never seen him doing something special, I'm the clear favourite in this match. If I lose early I will play Fürth in the second week. After that, Halle, 's-Hertogenbosch and Wimbledon are on my schedule.
24th May 2007
Finally I made another SF in doubles in Pörtschach. If I can get this title, I will be back in the doubles race.
20th May 2007
I still think I'm the best TT player. I mean we have someone like linus, who picked Becker over Berdych on clay, on #2 in singles. How is it possible that I'm not up there? I can't believe that and I will try hard to get back on top. Also in doubles I need a success. I lost in all three clay Masters in the first round.
