Re: Canadian Players 2

Yes, Aleks is back, not expecting much, only just picked up the racket a couple of weeks ago, it seems.

Here are rankings (top 500) for this week:

28 Raonic, Milos (CH 25)
179 Dancevic, Frank (CH 65)
211 Polansky, Peter (CH 164)
239 Pospisil, Vasek CH!
241 Bester, Philip (CH 238)
353 Chvojka, Erik (CH 343)
441 Diez, Steven (CH 407)
482 Duclos, Pierre-Ludovic (CH 259)

Congrats to Vasek who reaches another career high, vaulting over Philip.

Diez sinks down again after the Futures win from last year falls off. He's top seed in a Spanish Futures - hopefully he can get past the 2nd round this time.

Too bad about the tough draws at RG for our boys.

dubois....she has a shot but she'll need a good draw

Re: Canadian Players 2

Congratulation to Kelsey Stevenson on getting that first ATP point, not sure it will amount to anything but he can at least say he got one point on the ATP tour.

Re: Canadian Players 2

For the ladies based on the draws I could see Aleks qualifying as she got a really favorable draw. Not sure how she will do as she has been out for a while

However, the other 2 have tougher draws and will have to really battle hard to get into the main event!!

I'll yes to Aleks, no to Dubois and not a chance to Heidi.

Re: Canadian Players 2

Steven Diez had a great win in his Rd 1 match in Spain.

Diez bagelled his opponent who was 663 in the world! Great start to the week for him!

Re: Canadian Players 2

i dont know about aleks..i mean i can see that she does have the best draw, but even before the injury she was losing to completely random players all the time.
If she had played a bit already i could say she will qualify but her tendency to be blown off court by just about anyone on the given day and the fact that she hasnt played in a while really goes against her for me.

we'll see

anyone i guess thats enough about the firls in here anyway

Re: Canadian Players 2

heidi lost 5-7, 3-6 to sally peers

the worst part about that is that she was 0-3 down in the 2nd set, fought to level at 3-3 and then..well its clear what happened

he just took the first set off the 3 seed 6-1

though he's downwhat I thought was 4-0 in the 2nd set, though it now says 3-1. Hopefully he can win this match and get more points, it's on livescore on bet365 btw, as will vasek's match in about a couple hours

Re: Canadian Players 2

he broke back at 4-3, and just won 6-1 7-6(2), great win for him to beat the 3 seed, I'm borderline shocked

that is assuming the bet scores were right, wouldn't br suprised if they weren't, and the score was actually the other way
