If al stays in bates good books i think he will be picked over arv, remember they didnt even send arv out in Aus when tim and greg where out.
Al has a lot to learn and improve but he plays better on the big occasions and vs the higher ranked guys i think, he even got a straight sets win over Johanssen in nottingham last year
coz he loves parmar
personally parmars ok but a very big choker and i think bates might as well give the youngsters experience! Alex didnt do bady when he played in aus in DC!
and yep it was a straight sets win over Joachim in nottingham, i watched it
