I just noticed Xavier is playing doubles in Memphis (with Sargsian), that's a real surprise. When was the last time he entered doubles?

I read the article BelgianGirl posted about Xavier, I guess he's playing doubles now cause he's changing his game and coming to the net more. Which is a good idea of course. I was just so surprised to see a Belgian name in the doubles draw of an ATP-tournament.

Xavier and Sargis Sargsian won in the first round from Haas/Weiner 7-6, 6-4. They play against the Bryan brothers next.

Feb 20th, 2002, 09:22 PM
oh my..is he really changing his life???

I've never seen Xavier in doubles..so this is a surprise...

GO XAVIER!!!!!!!!!!!!

Feb 21st, 2002, 01:08 PM
Christophe lost in the first round to Sargsian 2-6, 3-6 :(

GO XAVIER!!! :bounce:

Feb 21st, 2002, 05:02 PM

Feb 21st, 2002, 09:33 PM

Feb 21st, 2002, 09:45 PM
Well done Xavier! :D

Feb 22nd, 2002, 09:31 AM
C'mon Xavier! :D

Martin will be tough though....

Feb 22nd, 2002, 11:52 AM
Good luck against Todd! Time to take revenge!

Feb 22nd, 2002, 12:49 PM
Goooooooo Xavier, revenge time!!!

Feb 22nd, 2002, 03:17 PM
Good luck against Martin!
We know you can beat him, so please do it and keep going to win this title!:bounce: :bounce:

Feb 22nd, 2002, 03:39 PM

Feb 22nd, 2002, 06:32 PM

Malisse def. Martin 7-6(5) 3-6 7-5

Feb 22nd, 2002, 07:29 PM
Well done, Xavier! :bounce: :bounce:
Good luck in the semi's against Roddick or Sargsian!

btw Justinator: I didn't find this Avatar myself, it's one of the standard-avatars that you can choose from in your profile options, but I like it too! :) I have a pic of the winning fedcup team, but I can't get it working as an avatar for some reason :confused: so I chose one off those! :)

Feb 22nd, 2002, 08:34 PM
Congrats Xavier and keep going! :) :)

BelgianGirl, oh I've never checked those standard-avatars ;)

Feb 22nd, 2002, 08:34 PM
Yes, now it's official

Xavier beats Todd Martin 7-6 (7/5) 3-6 7-5!!! And more, Xavier saved 3 match points at 5-4 (40-0) for Martin in the third set!!!

Well done Xavier!!!!

I hope and I want him to win this tournament by beating Andy Roddick in semi (Xavier lost to him in last year final at Atlanta) and by beating Jan-Michal Gambill in the final (Xavier lost to him in last year final at Delray Beach)!!!

Come on Xavier!!!! Win your first ATP tournament!!!!!

In doubles Xavier and Sargsian lost to the Bryan Brothers 6-3 6-7 (3/7) 10-4 (it was with a super-tiebreak).

Does someone have pictures of Xavier in Memphis?

Feb 22nd, 2002, 09:33 PM
There's an article about the match on the Memphis-site (also a pic of Xavier Come-on-Kim :) )
The link is: www.atptour.com/memphis/news/friday.html
I think it's a really good sign he can win in those situations now! Not so long ago, when he was losing a match you could be sure it was over, it's great to see that he seems so motivated to improve!:D

Feb 22nd, 2002, 11:12 PM
Yay, well done Xavier! :D

Now beat Roddick or Sargsian!:bounce: :bounce:

Feb 23rd, 2002, 08:53 AM

GO XAVIER!!!!!!!!!!!!

Feb 23rd, 2002, 03:21 PM
on the site it says : not playing before 3.30 PM (in Memphis)

GO XAVIER!!!!!!!!!!!!

Feb 23rd, 2002, 03:50 PM

Feb 23rd, 2002, 09:26 PM
Xavier won the first set 7-6(5) :D

He was down 4-1 in the tie-break first, but came back to 4 all

Keep going! :bounce:

Feb 23rd, 2002, 09:31 PM
Yeah, I'm following it live on the website, it was an impressive come-back!

Now he's down 0-2 in the 2nd set, I hope he can recover and take the match in two sets!

Come on Xavier, you need to break back!

Feb 23rd, 2002, 10:03 PM
7-6 3-6...

Come on guy, if you survived a 3rd set 3-5 30-40* (MP) down against Todd Martin, you can beat Andy Roddick!

Feb 23rd, 2002, 10:06 PM
You can do it Xavier! Win that third set, please!

Feb 23rd, 2002, 10:19 PM
