Re: Pierre Ludovic Duclos

Smith was the favorite in my mind. Former top junior player, won the NCAA's as a freshman. Real good player.

Re: Pierre Ludovic Duclos

According to the Australian Open qualies entrylist, PLD is within the entrylist and can play Aussie Open qualies if he chooses to. That would be sweet, I think. I never seen PLD play in Slam qualies before. Althought he probably wouldn't qualify.

Re: Pierre Ludovic Duclos

I think he will be going to the Qatar Exxonmobil tournament too. It would great if he qualifies.

Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think a guy like PLD would ever go to Qatar or participate in Grand Slam qualies. A good sign! Actually, I really would like PLD to crack the top 100 or qualify for a Slam at some point in his career.

Re: Pierre Ludovic Duclos

PLD missed out on playing qualies for Doha because of ranking, I don't understand why he wouldn't go to Chennai where he would have made qualies and the field is so much weaker.

Re: Pierre Ludovic Duclos

PLD tweeted:
First tournament of the year... Doha: 19hrs traveling time, 7000 miles & you don't even get the chance to play
That's an absolute shocker. Oh well i guess everything happens for a reason...

Re: Pierre Ludovic Duclos

Well if someone withdraws last minute from the Q draw he is probably next is. Small chance but you never know.

Re: Pierre Ludovic Duclos

I wonder how much money PLD blew just to get to Doha for nothing! I would feel pissed off if that happened to me. If I were him, I would've went on the atptennis site itself and check the cut offs for upcoming events instead of wasting money. But for sure, him and Chvojka can play Oz Open qualies with their rankings.

Re: Pierre Ludovic Duclos

Exactly, seems like a crazy decision to fly all the way there for a maybe. It's one thing when you've already made the qualy list but to fly there as an ALT is a risk.

qualies sign ins are done on site on the Friday. He can't just go somewhere and check before flying there to sign in. it's a risk you take

that being said I would have went to Brisbane if i were him because that way if he didn't get in at least he wouldn't then have to spend a load on a flight to Melbourne too, as it's just right there.

But he may get in though if someone withdraws. He's probably the next ALT in. Don't leave yet PLD

Re: Pierre Ludovic Duclos

Lucky losers are only for qualifiers who made the final round and didn't end up qualify. Then they are bumped into the main draw as a lucky loser.

Re: Pierre Ludovic Duclos

PLD is on the qualies entry list. I wonder if he's in Australia right now. If anything, he should've went to the Noumea challenger to prep up for the Oz open.
