Re: Week 14: Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA

Wow, you have got to be kidding me! This is going to take up all of my favorite challenger players, like SPADEA away from Houston. Is there a site to tell which players have entered this tournament so far?

Re: Week 14: Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA

Dang Greg that is pretty unlucky. Its also bad because it would be a great tourney to watch but you cant watch 2 at once. Bad scheduling from the ATP or whomever does the challengers. There probably wont be a lot of Kendrick's, Young's, maybe even Vince wont show in Houston. Sorry Greg

Re: Week 14: Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA

Blame USTA, not ATP I guess

Greg, go to the link in first post (tournament website) and try to contact them and ask which players are expected to show up

Thanks for the idea. I talked to the tournament director who said that most of the players that played in Dallas will come. She also said most likely Delic and Reynoldes will play here. Possibility for Taylor Dent. When I asked her about Spadea she said se would love to have him come () but she had not heard at all from him. VINCE COME TO HOUSTON!!!

It's not bad scheduling. Obviously those that are serious about preparing for RG will go to Houston, but those that don't will play in Baton Rouge. Since many US players don't venture off to Paris for RG Qualies, you will find only a slightly weaker version of your average US hardcourt Challenger here, I'd guess.

Re: Week 14: Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA

I was there last year, and off the top of my head can remember seeing:

Kendrick
Reynolds
Warburg
Kevin Kim
Jenkins
Gregorc
Sweeting
Brendan Evans
Bloomfield
Bogdanovic
Bjorn Rehnquist
Benjamin Becker
J. Ouanna
G. Lugassy
A. Kuznetsov
Martin Fischer
Igor Kunitsyn (lost in finals to Reynolds)
Van Der Merwe
A. Juska
Thiago Alves
M. Yani

I believe the wild cards were Ryan Harrison, Ryan Sweeting, and Jesse Witten, but don't quote me on that. I can remember Sweeting screaming out "These are the worst courts I've ever played on in my life," which organizers were really offended by considering he had received a wildcard, lol. Bear in mind these are REALLY slow hard courts, which is actually my favorite surface to watch. It was also weird sitting on the same bleachers as Brad Gilbert there watching Bogdanovic in the final round of qualifying!

This is one of the better run events I went to last year, and I imagine it will continue to get better. Cheers!
