    Just met Olivia Rochus at my club. This guy is an inspiration!! He is shorter than I and I'm short myself :) This is a lesson for you kids don't let anyone tell you have to be this tall to play pro tennis. The dude has won titles in the ATP tour and taken sets off of Federer.

    He must have just been hitting there to warm up for futures or challengers? Some guy on Youtube said that Verdasco came to his club to hit once.

    Very cool! Here is about 50 minutes of Rochus vs Federer from US Open 2005. Oliver played some good tennis.



    Thanks for sharing.

    I think the ATP has listed his dating height :) He is about an inch shorter than that. Great one handed backhand. Dunno how the dude handles the high bounces. They can clear hit it way over his head.

    Roddick didn't show up. He is so flaky. Don't get the impression he cares for the fans.

    Boo CS Fremont! Haha, jk. I don't recognize you but I play in the Diablo South area as well and know quite a few CSF members.

    That's cool that you got to meet him. I'm going to SAP Monday day session and the first semifinal session.

    It's funny. In that match Mac just mentions casually that Fed was 66-3 for the year at that point, like it was no big deal. But with Djoker who also had 2 or losses going into the USO, it was like a huge deal.
