    I totally agree with hong and would add that on the mental side your play is not only intelligent but also incredibly robust and focused. It is so refreshing to see someone who can hold himself together and intimidate the opposition with tennis rather than glaring and shouting.

    I watched you playing and was very impressed with your playing style: very effective, fast, accurate and most of all very intelligent and consistant.
