The "Dr No" David Rice Appreciation Thread

Rice is a young up and coming Brit with limited potential but still, I feel he deserves a thread. Hopefully he'll make it to Wimbledon one day

All fans of "Dr No" welcome.

He won today in the final round of qualifying for a futures tournament today

Re: The "Dr No" David Rice Appreciation Thread

The Doctor has Marcus Willis in the 1st round in Glasgow. Very winnable match

If he wins he has a potential meeting with Vagnozzi.

Re: The "Dr No" David Rice Appreciation Thread

Of course, Rice is probably best-known for his antics on Bebo which resulted in his funding and coaching being withdrawn last year. He's put all that behind him now and will hopefully have a decent career

He is in a London futures event this week. He's got to the 3rd round of qualies after beating Pritchard and Marti. Next Kinsella, if he wins that, main draw
