What's up with Vince :?: . Haven't seen a glimpse of him or heard a word about him since Indian Wells. Did he play Nasdaq, Houston, Monte Carlo? Is he hurt? Anybody know the latest?

He has been losing first/second rounds.

He took a year and a half off after his first tourney win.

Wherever he is, he's no doubt still awesome.

I saw a pretty funny pic of him from the FedCup over the weekend. Thought itwas pretty funny he was there.

He never plays Houston, he's one of the only Americans. He lost first round in Monte Carlo, but he was the only American in the singles draw, so some credit to him for at least making the trip.

He has been losing first/second rounds.

He's been to two semifinals and one quarterfinal this year already. That's not exactly losing first rounds - he hasn't done well in the bigger events, he's had a couple of disappointing losses, but he's having enough results to keep him in the top 50 or so.

And even some of his losses weren't bad, very close matches - he lost 7-6 in the third to Ljubicic in Miami, 7-6 in the third to Hernych in IW, and in five sets at the Australian Open to Stepanek.

Sure, his level has slipped a bit since last year, but those things happen. His career goes on, he's still in the thick of things, though he never was and never will be one of the top guys.

Um, I may have added the words. But seriously, has there ever been somebody this awesome before? I think not.

I always wanted to see a Spadea v Tarango match. They both hang out in W.La so would be fun to see them battle :)

Tarango! An alltime favourite of mine.
