First of all, can you tell us what your real name is, where you're from, what your age is and what you do for a living?
Lol, my first interview, I'm pretty nervous :) ...My real name is Mario, I'm from Austria and I'm a 20 year old student
How did you come up with your gamertag name?
Roger Federer is my personal god, i love his style to play, and he has a very nice character
What surface do you prefer to play on?
How did you become part of the ITST?
i bought the game, and then i saw that there was installed gamespy, so i started to play online and then i saw the url in the chatbox :)
What can you tell us about your first match you played for the ITST?
puh long time ago, but i think that i didnt win :), well at the beginning i was very bad
What is your most memorable ITST-moment?
my 2 sim tnt wins and the reg tnt win, that was an impressive time for me, all i wanted worked :)
Which moment of your ITST-career would you rather forget?
the last 2 or 3 months, because i didnt have enough time to improve, the truth is that i got much worse...
Which tournament are you looking forward to the most?
the us open, a great tnt, played on my favourite surface hardcourt, im hoping that i have a good draw, but most important is that i have fun
Who do you think will be top 3 ranked players at the end of the year?
le dieu, pahel and abuigi in regular
rasta, ced and al jam or myself in sim
What do you think your own ranking will be at the end of the year?
in reg im hoping to be top 8, so that i can take part at the masters cup
in sim i want to be no. 3, but this will be very very hard
What do you think is the best part of this Tour?
the people, many different cultures are meeting at this game, south americans, israelis, and nearly all european countries, that makes fun, and i can improve my language skills :)
Have you got any ideas to improve the Tour?
its all okay for me, the challenger tour already exists for the not so good ones, thats great i think, maybe there shouldnt be so many "no match" or "walkovers"...
Is there anything left you want to say?
yes, austria is the greatest country in the world :)
