OK well some extra matches have been added to the OOP for Tuesday – and most of them start first – so I can imagine us having the nightmare position of these matches finishing when the later matches which count for the first round don’t get started, but judging by the weather forecast we're in for a similar day tomorrow.
OOP for Tuesday
Flavio CIPOLLA (ITA) v Sergiy STAKHOVSKY (UKR) SR1 PTS
Ruben RAMIREZ-HIDALGO (ESP) v Steve DARCIS (BEL) SR2
Adrian UNGUR (ROU) v Xavier MALISSE (BEL) SR3
Matthew EBDEN (AUS) v Matthias BACHINGER (GER) SR4
Martin KLIZAN (SVK) v Alex BOGOMOLOV JR. (RUS) SR5
Dmitry TURSUNOV (RUS) v Ryan SWEETING (USA) SR6
Yen-Hsun LU (TPE) v Igor KUNITSYN (RUS) SR7
Kenny DE SCHEPPER (FRA) v Denis ISTOMIN (UZB) SR8
Matches count for the second round in singles and the second of a two-day first round in doubles.
Matches start at 11.00am UK Time.
Please send your picks to AdeyC
NOTE – DIFFS WILL NOT POSTED UNTIL MID-AFTERNOON
(EDIT - I realise that I forgot to put PTS for all doubles matches and state that Tuesday matches will take priority in cases of shootout in doubles - as I have received lots of picks already it's too late to change it now - also with 24 matches in the total OOP for doubles I doubt it will affect things anyway)
Match with nothing after it's name - Just pick the winner
Match with SR after it's name - Pick the winner and the sets (Ex: Arthurs 2-1)
Match with PTS after it's name - Pick the whole score (Ex: Arthurs 6:7 7:6 6:1)
As is now tradition in my events – just for fun I’ll be handing out a daily Eager Beaver Award each day
which will go to the first person to send in picks after the OOP is posted – so nine players at all levels
will have a chance of winning something this week.
