Re: Qualifying Draw

Simon has had opportunities these last two return games. He's focused. Now he needs to keep holding, and get that break.

I'm not emotional, it's an act for attention. On the inside I am emotional, but the words I'm writing are nothing more than empty words

Ebden probably is playing inspired tennis and no, we don't know how the match is going. What I do know is Simon was in the clear and now he's on the brink of losing. When you have the sort of lead Simon had you cannot let it slip away at this level.

Re: Qualifying Draw

The way Ebden is in all of these games when he wasn't before leads me to believe he's just stepped it up. But he's playing Simon. He needs to lose.

Plus, he probably realises that he has never done well on the surface so it is better to get those much-needed ranking points in a Challenger.

For Lojda, I think Wimbledon remains a rather elusive dream.
Oh, I wasn't being critical. It's just different mentalities. Some guys have different priorities. Guys like Zeballos and Ramos are right on the verge of the top 100. So, instead of going to Wimbledon, they play a challenger. If they win it, they are top 100, and situation themselves to make the USO, and play ATP events. Other guys will play a GS qualifying event with little chance to succeed, but as you said, they want to fulfill their dreams. It is what it is, both are perfectly valid positions.

Re: Qualifying Draw

Guys that have played ATP events semi-regularly if not completely regularly a lot of times will skip major qualifying and play challengers, because they have been through that experience, and they don't have the motivation to qualify. Instead the play a challenger to get into the top 100 so they don't have to worry about qualifying or not. The French is the one slam guys usually all show up, because it's the easiest slam to travel to, and clay is a neutralizing surface.

Re: Qualifying Draw

Di Mauro unable to have a proper claycourt match against Broady, so he makes use of the opportunity to grind it out in a different manner by dragging the match to a lengthy third set.

Re: Qualifying Draw

Simon once again blows a lead in a match and loses. I'm more displeased than disappointed. Just bullshit. But expected from Simon.

Simone will do what is required and win this section. He better.
