I have no idea how he plays? Is it like Nico who has and the majority of the South American(big forehand, weaker backhand, great mover, good serve)? I've heard he has a huge serve?

i've seen him play once on t.v. in a davis cup match against australia awhile ago i think it was in 2000 he was still quite young. i think he was only 17. i can't really remember how he played but i think he had a pretty big serve. he is quite tall from what i remember. i thought that he had the makings of quite a good player, he had a good base to start developing his game.

Gowza, are you sure it wasn't his Davis Cup tie against Great Britain in 2000 that you saw? He came back from 2 sets to none down to beat Parmar in 5. His best results have really been posted in Davis Cup... he's saved the day for them on a couple of big occasions (beat Parmar to get them into the World Group, and winning both his matches in World Group qualifications earlier this year).

Oh nevermind... I guess that you meant in 2001 where they played Australia in round 1 (that GB match is what qualified them for the World Group). My bad!

Everything that I just told you I looked up on the ATP site.

Thanks! He's beaten Rios on clay(Davis Cup) and Srichaphan on hard(in Scottsdale) and I've read he can serve at 130 MPH. Any chance for him to beat Robredo in your opinion?

doesn't he face Hewitt early at RG? in that case, here's hoping his peeler is totally sharp!
