They're crap. According to them Dudi should have been atleast no.50 to go there, and even though we don't have much athlits or tennis players (Exept Andyoni) they don't care and not willing to let him go there.
The ITF even contacted with the Israeli president (Shimon Peres) and yet..

That's shooting themselves in the foot He is the number 1 player for Israel; is in the top 100 which is an elite group of men and even the ITF wanted him to go. Could there also be a money issue of sorts? I remember when Noam was ranting about tennis in Israel he had nothing nice to say about the tennis powers that be there.

Oh they have the money to send him if they want to, but they don't, they don't really care about the sports, just a bunch of stupid business men who want more money for themselves
They are stupid and this desicion is so styypid... Massu won it when he was #70! I'm not saying Dudi will win, I don't think he would get far, but he deserve to be there, to be given a chance!He gave a lot from himself for the israeli tennis and we didn't have an ATP player (singles) over 20 years in the olympics

Re: |||| Dudi Sela :: }}

Well maybe something good will come of it; maybe Andyoni will win a medal
Massu was ranked higher I believe; I think he had the #12 seed at the time for the tournie.

Dudi lost to Blake 7:6 6:2.
I guess he can be "happy" about the 1st set's result, agaist Blake in USA is very tough, but loss is a loss, and this time his ranking will be down badly, he has many pints to defend now...

I Saw him play in New City, NY In kennedy fundning invitational last week. It's not an official event as you know. He lost in the final and took home $20,000.

He beat Kevin Kim In straight sets the first match. Then he beat Paul Goldstein 6-0 6-1. Then He lost in the final 2-6 4-6 to Somdev Devvarman despite leading 4-1 in the second set. I thought he looked pretty good overall, you can check my video of him on youtube "Dudi Sela 2008 New York"

Devverman just graduated. There is a thread on GM about him. He won the college NCAA championships 2 years in a row. Good player.

Yeah Devvarman just turned professional. I think he could be ranked between 200-100 pretty soon.

Dudi won Vancouver challenger by defeating Kevin Kim 6-3 6-0 in the final.
As Nathii said on her site it seems that Dudi found the shape he was looking for so much.

By the way, Nathii's site on challenger events is highly recommended.
