I was looking at the player's list, and it's not so hard. The Romanian Open list was harder. BUT! this is a hard surface tournament, and he is not so good at it. And again the "first seeded complex" . I hope he makes it to the quarter-finals!

GO MARIANO! YOUR BIGGEST FANS ARE WITH U! :worship: :worship:

Thanks Rosie, for the draw :)
Wow, he's seeded nr 1...anyway, I hope he won't feel too much pressure - I don't think he will. But mostly i hope he's not too tired.

Vamos Mariano :D

Good luck to Mariano in Vietnam - hope his wrist is alright and he doesn't have too much jet lag, and can go far in the tournament!

:lol: Well, he's not Roddick, Nadal or Federer, it's a hard task to watch any of his matches. :rolls: There's a thread in GM :Tennis online (ATP Sicily - coverage every day on Sportitalia) where you can get information on how to watch some tourneys thru internet. I dunno if Vietnam's being broadcasted but that's my only chance to watch Mariano :shrug:

We get pretty good tennis coverage here in England - but only on pay TV. We get all 4 Grand Slams and all 9 Masters' Series events, plus some of the European clay court events in the Summer on British Eurosport. So I do get to see Maraino on TV sometimes - though not as much as I would like - if his matches clash with Henman, Murray or Rusedski then I have no chance :sad:

Same here in Saudi Arabia, we get pretty good coverage on satelite tv. 4 GS, The Masters and we also get the British and French Eurosport. So I got to see Mariano's matches from RG(of course) and US Open and Montreal. :wavey:

Congrats Mariano for making it to 2nd round! 6-4, 6-7, 6-4
Jet lag is tough to deal with, so good job pulling through.
Good luck for the next one.

Congrats Mariano :bigclap: Must admit when I got home from work and saw the scoreline I was pretty shocked at how close it was - but then I remembered the jet-lag ATennisFan mentioned, and also he must be suffering from some kind or reaction to all the happenings at the DC last weekend. So well done Mariano for holding it together enough to win this match under difficult circumstances - good luck in the next round.

Yeah, congrats Mariano (I had the same feeling by reading the score, remember Soeda is ranked 390 or something, but just as you said, Mariano made a huge effort to win) Congrats again!! :bounce: Now go for the aussie!
