Guccione won the WC.

Guccione suffered one loss in the Group Stage of the Shoot-Out, while Young was undefeated, meaning had to beat Young twice in a row to advance. He did, winning the final two tie-breaks 10-8 and 11-9.

Chris Guccione Wins Wild Card Shoot-Out
Friday, July 24, 2009

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 24, 2009

LOS ANGELES - Australian Chris Guccione has earned a wild card into the LA Tennis Open Presented by Farmers Insurance Group after winning the ninth annual Wild Card Shoot-Out on Friday at UCLA.

Guccione defeated American Donald Young 11-9 in the final tie-break to determine the wild card.

“It’s a lot better than playing three qualie matches,” Guccione said. “I just found out about this a couple days ago. I feel like I’m playing well. I just won the Aptos Challenger, so obviously I’m hitting the ball pretty well. This is great.”

Guccione suffered one loss in the Group Stage of the Shoot-Out, while Young was undefeated, meaning had to beat Young twice in a row to advance. He did, winning the final two tie-breaks 10-8 and 11-9.

This will be the second main draw appearance for Guccione in LA. In 2007, he lost in the first round in a third-set tie-break to Marat Safin.

Eight players took part in a double-elimination tie-break tournament. Those who have no advanced to the main draw may sign in for the qualifying tournament that begins at 10 am on Saturday.

Re: Main Draw

my thoughts exactly, how weak can a field get. Only 3 top 30...


nevertheless, Haas really can win that, he is in form, he is a former champ and the other guys are more than beatable..

afraid safin won't win a match again

Re: Main Draw

Hoping for a Haas/Fish final.

Based on form Tommy is a major favorite.
