Did any one else noticed that after Werner Eschauer made his first ATP final ever, which was in mid-July, he went the entire rest of the season without winning a single match! He's lost 10 matches in a row now. It's sort of sad, I was really hoping he would continue his breakthrough. I don't know much about the guy, but it was kind of cool that at age 33 he finally broke the top 100 for the 1st time this year.

Apparently he came from a really poor family, and I'm a sucker for those type of stories. :eek:

I posted this a couple days ago in another thread.

If you look, 3 of these losses were on clay to low ranked players. His 6 losses are on hardcourts cant really be blamed, hes not a hardcourter and he lost to decent players.

The loss that hurts the most is losing to Andre Sa on carpet :help:

I saw werner destroy moya on clay a few months ago.

Good player on his day.

His involvement in the match fixing saga probs has not helped either.

It's not because i'm Brazilian, but there's nothing wrong with this loss.

Sá is a former #55 in the world in 2002. Now he's dedicating into doubles, being semi-finalist in Wimby and QF in the US Open with fellow Brazilian Marcelo Melo. Carpet and hard have always been the best surfaces for Andre, who has a great return of serve. This year he was very close to beat Karlovic in Indy, sad that he choked when serving for match :sad:

Also, i saw this match, Andre played really well, he did some really nice shots.

This was definetely not the loss that hurts the most.

Look, in 2002 André Sá lost in the QF of Wimbledon to Henman in 4 sets, after defeating Feliciano Lopez in 4 sets, a trull grass player. Other achievements in that year were a 3 set loss to Roddick in Memphis (5-7 6-4 6-3) and a loss to Safin in Moscow, CARPET [7-6(3) 4-6 7-5].

In 2001 he had his best result in Hong Kong, reaching the semi-final after defeating Roddick, Kratochvil and Bjorkman.
