Re: Phil Bester

Philip Bester gave an interview with Fan 590 which you can listen to here: http://www.fan590.com/media.jsp?cont...21_202318_8836

He talks about Davis Cup and claims that actually he likes playing on clay, even saying it is his best surface.

Unfortunately it turns out that he has a stress fracture in his hand. He was uncertain when he would be able to return, saying he is taking it week by week.

So that rounds things out for our injured top 5 players, with the full range of injuries: Hip, back, ankle, hand and groin.

Don't tempt fate. We still have shoulder and knee available for injury. Who knows who is next.

Re: Phil Bester

Call Frank and make up. Seriously.

Can be like Indianapolis 2007. Gets in at the last minute and makes a run to the final

Re: Phil Bester

Just looked at the points Bester has to defend until the end of the year and it's 73 points from next week till Jan 1. So lets hope he starts playing again or his ranking will also take a big tumble.

Re: Phil Bester

So it looks like Bester isn't even signing up for tournaments in October so I'm thinking he will probably call it a season and use his protected ranking starting in January. Once all his points come off by January he should be ranked out of the top 500.

Re: Phil Bester

I guess its better to be healthy then play the first half of the year like Peter did this year injured.
