Re: Phil Bester

Phil's got the strokes flowing now. He's up a break in the second set. He was running around his backhand too much, though his forehand looks to be humming, but now seems to have both wings working well. (Balance is important for a Libra to be at their best!)

Re: Phil Bester

Spoke too soon. He's got to stop trying drop shots for one.

Re: Phil Bester

In trouble now, down a third set break. Funny to see Bester with what looks to be a bottle of coca-cola (in addition to his sports drink and water) at his chair. Opponent up 5-3 now.

Re: Phil Bester

Very disappointing for Bester - he must have hoped to do well here at home, especially after getting into the groove in Granby.

Looked like he might be carrying some kind of groin injury - hope I am wrong there.

Re: Phil Bester

To lose to this guy, you have to think he must not have been quite right.

Re: Phil Bester

Anyone know why isn't Bester playing this week in Mississauga? Also, can he use a protected ranking towards entering U.S Open qualifying?

We thought he might be injured from his results lately.

Re: Phil Bester

He is now 14 spots out of qualifying, should be close. Last year the cut off was around 300 for qualies so lets hope its that low again this year.

Re: Phil Bester

Bester doesn't seem to be injured since he is playing a 30k open event in maryland.. he now is in the semi-finals (erik was also there as the top seed, but lost in the quarters). he probably needs the money after all his injuries and his time away from the tour

Re: Phil Bester

Is it a USTA event? You don't happen to have a link to its draw?
