Re: Pierre Ludovic Duclos
Lost in qualifying for the LA World Tour 250 event, in the second round, to a guy, Louk Sorensen, who's been away from tour play since March. A disappointing result.
I disagree that he doesn't stand a chance of qualifying for World Tour (WT) events. He normally wins in the first round of qualification and then usually plays a close second round match. And the two times he has got into a WT main draw, Winston-Salem and s-Hertogenbosch, he first beat Ryan Harrison and then lost to Ferrer just four and four. I like that it seems he has the confidence where he feels he belongs with the big boys. For me it's the other way around - I'd like to see Polansky, now that he's back on track, Chvojka, and Bester too with one or two PRs even, trying to qualify for a few more WT events than they currently do.
