Re: Canadian Players 2

I think a number of people could get the wildcards. But aren't wildcards at futures normally given to young up and comers in that particular country. Sure Obucina and Di Feo are young but they need that exp. to up the confidence that they can play at this level and Di Feo is going to turn 16 in a few months anyways.

Re: Canadian Players 2

A guy I thought would have a decent career would have been Bruno but I guess he wasn't up to all the travelling or just didn't think he would be good enough.

Re: Canadian Players 2

I just don't see the logic in giving it to the YOUNGEST talent. Guys like Trkulja and Nguyen and Ochotta are still young, and have done better in the passed year than the others.

That's basically like saying at the Rogers Cup, lets not give Polansky the wildcard, lets give it to Peliwo, he needs the experience. (Sorry if this starts another huge debate). The wildcards should go to the most skilled players who can't make the draw themselves.

Re: Canadian Players 2

Let's hope that they at least don't give the WCs to players that could have made the draw but didn't bother to sign up, like they did last year (in the later round of Futures).

Re: Canadian Players 2

I guess that is what I meant Gonzil. I want them to give it to younger players but maybe not the yougest, the only one I gave a wildcard to that was maybe not warranted was Di Feo. I just gave it to him over Nguyen because I think I saw Nguyen in some entry list in a G1 in Thailand which is around the same time as this. Maybe he will quit that one if he get the wildcard in Montreal. Maybe they will give different WC's to different players for the two futures event. I can't wait to see the entry list of the Rimouski Challenger.

Re: Canadian Players 2

Alejandro Tabilo lost in the quarter-finals of a U-16 Select Tournament. Because he's still only 14, he was only the 6th seed, but I still expected him to do better, lost to the 4th seed, whose brother has been doing ITF qualifying lately.

Re: Canadian Players 2

Looks like Adil won his second doubles title in a row but this time he won a challenger in Quimper, France!

Re: Canadian Players 2

Great result for Adil. We really have an embarras de choix of potential DC players.

Re: Canadian Players 2

Great that Adil is stepping up. I don't think he'll play DC this year while everyone is healthy, but when Daniel will retire (which will have to be someday...) he will definetly be a solid player to rely on for the doubles...

Re: Canadian Players 2

Nice bit from Challenger Tennis about Adil in blog today:

"In winning the Quimper dubs title with American partner James Cerretani, he’s now made 12 Challenger doubles finals in the last 15 months, with 6 different partners, winning 4 of them (finals, not partners). Not to mention he and Cerretani also won an ATP title last week in Jo’burg. I got to see him play with Vasek Pospisil at the Dallas Challenger last year, and I was seriously impressed. It genuinely bothers me that he doesn’t get more attention in the tennis world. Guess I’ll have to do my next “Spotlight On” profile about Adil…"

Maybe 4 or 5 if he wants to get more of a workout in.

Re: Canadian Players 2

Steven Diez lost in the first round of a Spanish futures 16-16, to a guy barely ranked above him (in the 400). I really don't know what to think about him anymore, since he seemed to be a pretty good up and comer and seems to be stagnating(if not worse) for the past year/year and a half. Is it because Galo Blanco isn't with him anymore??
