Finally we have a thread to cheer and celebrate the world #1 doubles player, Max Mirnyi! :bounce:

Max is currently playing in Stuttgart. He won in singles today in straights over Marc Lopez, and looks primed and ready to take on top seed Carlos Moya in the 3rd round! He is also playing in doubles with Palmer. Good Luck, Max!

Some pics to start us (I hope it's us, not just me talking to myself :eek:) off:




(Pop and son look so much alike!)


(Flexible! :eek: )


(hehe)


(Great shirt)

Now to the trophy pics :D:


(If only I could cut out Hewitt... :D)




(He looks so young in this picture!)






(Stuttgart '01 - First Masters Series singles final)


(Rotterdam '03 - First of MANY singles titles to come :D)

Well, Carlos Moya fell to Tomas Behrend 7-6, 7-6 in the second round. So instead of facing the top-seeded Spaniard in the next round, Max will be playing the unseeded German instead. Mirnyi is just 8 points from being ranked in the top 30 in singles so this is an excellent chance for him! :D

i saw part of the match.max played bad,he missed lots of volleys but that behrend guy played very well,forced max to play from the baseline and u know max is very vulnerable there.He was never able to break behrend,and returned bad,was impatient,not a good attitude on clay. :fiery:

Max Mirnyi is seeded #10 at Kitzbuhel and recieves a bye into the 2nd round, where he could meet Luis Horna, semifinalist this week in Amersfoort. The first seed he could meet is Juan Ignacio Chela in the 3rd round.

Mad Max wins 6-3, 6-2 over Horna to advance to the third round. Very impressive win over a clay courter. :)

WEDDING BELLS…MAX MIRNYI has announced his engagement to girlfriend Xenia, also from Belarus. They have yet to set a date for the wedding and will continue to split their time between Minsk (Belarus) and Florida.

Congratulations! :)

Last week in DC Mirnyi reached the quarterfinals, losing 6 and 2 to eventual finalist Fernando Gonzalez. But I'm happy to report that he got revenge by beating Gonzo's Chilean compatriot in straights yesterday to reach the second round of TMS Canada! His next match is gonna be a real toughie against Lleyton Hewitt, who has looked very sharp so far.

Go Max! :bounce:

The Beast has done it! A 7-5, 6-7(4), 7-5 triumph over former world No. 1 Lleyton Hewitt! Mirnyi was even able to out-return the Aussie, which is remarkable. I like Mad Max's chances against Srichaphan in the Round of 16 of TMS Canada. Make another quarterfinal, Max. :bounce:

Not exactly sure, but it seems like she is a model, and a very pretty one at that. You might want to ask Eggy.

Good Luck in Cincy, Mad Max! :bounce: He should be full of confidence after reaching the Montreal quarters with wins over Hewitt and Srichaphan. :D

LOL. We need to get Eggy over here. He's a fan of Mad Max, I think.
