Congrats to him. I saw the result when I got home from work. He was playing at the 'Graveyard' after all.
As for the Dutch, Schalken had a narrow win over Lapenti in five sets (6-2, 3-6, 6-7, 7-6, 6-4). Way to go Sjeng!

In the men's doubles part-time tennis player Haarhuis (at 37 an oldie in the circuit) won with Kafelnikov. That's a title I do want Kafelnikov to win. Unfortunately, Sluiter and Verkerk lost to the Bryan brothers (3rd seeded and they did win Rolland Garros by beating Haarhuis and Kafelnikov there).

Now, what else happened today?

C ya!

Marty

Greg Rusedski reminded me why I'm not such a huge fan of his with his petulant display after an admittedly bad line call against Andy Roddick. He was really letting it fly. "Don't let the crowd make the fuckin' calls!"

Hello,

Unfortunately Sluiter could not follow up on his excellent 1st round result (defeating Kafelnikov). He lost to Alexander Popp in 5 sets. I saw a large part of the match and thought that Sluiter was the better player. However, he missed some crucial points, which resulted in his loss. I hope you do better next tournament (and next year)!

Two days ago Schalken won from Escude in a five-set thriller. Today his task was much easier and less tiring. He beat Hanescu in straight sets (6-2, 6-4, 7-6) in less than 2 hours. Way to go Schalken, you survived the first week!

At the moment Srichaphan has a lead of 2 sets on his opponent and Haarhuis/Kafelnikov have a 2-1 (sets), 5-1 (games) lead over Malisse/Vanhoudt, so I expect them to win soon.

C ya!

Marty

Alexander Popp is like a German version of Karlovic.

It seems the time has expired for which I can edit my post, so I have to make a new one. I just want to state that I made an error in my post. Schalken beat Lapenti in the 2nd round, not Escude.
Now, who noticed this mistake?

C ya!

Marty

I was away all day at school today but I read in the news Srichaphan defeated Nadal fairly easily, although next up will be dear old A-Rod, which will be considerably tougher. Still, Paradorn's never made it past the third round of any Grand Slam, so here's to him!

I also happened to read Venus Williams just beat Nadia Petrova 6-1 6-2. Ouch, I was thinking Petrova and Zvonereva could really shake up the draw again as they did at Roland Garros, but maybe not.

I reckon Andy Roddick's gonna win it this time, with Agassi and Ferrero coming pretty damn close!
I thought Lleyton Hewitt was in with a definite shout this year but that kinda got bungled

As for being patriotic 'n shtuff, well I think everyone in the UK has realised there's no way Tim Henman's ever gonna win it cos he can't take the pressure as soon as he starts looking like he might do well. And Greg Rusedski's little 'episode' was ermm interesting if not a little colourful too

I have to say though, I'm really enjoying Wimbledon this year!

shirt of the moment - BORED OF THE BECKHAMS, worn by a couple during El Aynaoui-Agassi (great match, that was, too).

also got to see maria sharapova for the first time today. she's every bit as loud as they say.

Well, Schalken won again today, beating Schuettler in 3 sets (7-5, 6-4, 7-5). However, don't take any efforts to look for some video of it. Both players played horrible (although the first set was apparently quite good). Even when he was leading by 2 sets Schalken did not have the confidence, the air to hit the balls any better. Oh well, at least he won.

Sorry to see Srichaphan go. He could not withstand the assault by Roddick. Hopefully he can do better in the next Grand Slam (the US Open that is).

And what about Philippoussis? Beating Agassi in 5 sets. Not bad for an unseeded player who has had a nasty injury (his knees). Even more impressing when you know he lost from Agassi the previous 6 matches. Well done!

C ya!

Marty
