Re: Phil Bester

Phil is the number one seed in Sarasota qualifying. I like his draw - only Jordan Cox should be a threat, but one he should handle.

Re: Phil Bester

I saw Cox in the Gatineau futures qualifying draw last year against Bedard, I cannot believe he is ranked as high as he is. Bedard beat him comfortably that day.

Re: Phil Bester

Does Bester have a chance of making the cut for French Open qualies? I'm not sure what the typical cut-off is but I"m thinking he might miss out.

Re: Phil Bester

I think the cut last year was around 260.

Re: Phil Bester

Nice easy stuff... I like his chances to qualify, where there's a 50% chance he'll be drawn against another qualifier

Re: Phil Bester

Bester is the fourth best Canadian this year behind only Milos, Frank and Vasek. It looks like Philip might finally have surpassed Peter at this point in their careers. Peter still has the better resume but Philip just needed more time to crack into that talent.

Phillip was always the more talented of the two, its just to know if he can use that potential.

Re: Phil Bester

Bester is first on main court tomorrow at 11 am, where I believe he should qualify.

Re: Phil Bester

Pretty pathetic that they can't get the central court on the SB.
