Re: Phil Bester

I know that he is coming back from injury but maybe he cancelled his whole trip instead of just going to Wimbledon only.

Re: Phil Bester

Bester won his first round at a Futures in California. He's the first seed and beat Trombetta in three sets.

Re: Phil Bester

Johnson is a top college player and Bester is just coming back from injury. Its too bad but not terrible.

Re: Phil Bester

Is this another one of those college guys that is liable to beat him?

Re: Phil Bester

College player, but unlikely to beat Bester, no where close to Johnson

Re: Phil Bester

I believe Bester should start to focus on Challengers more now, he seems to have outgrown the futures circuit in the last year. I think he just played these two to get back from that hand injury.

Re: Phil Bester

I agree with both points Emeraldhands. Blake will be a bit of a test, he was a strong college performer two years ago is it now? Time flies. I still remember a 17 year old Peter.
