Re: Bernard's Grasscourt Season 2012

Not sure what to expect of him on the grass this year. Will be interesting to see what happens, especially at Wimbledon. Halle has a strong entry list at the moment, so it is a tough tournament to start off with.

It will be a tough ask to beat Haas in Germany and on grass.

Re: Bernard's Grasscourt Season 2012

I agree that it is a tricky 1st round. At least since he is playing Haas the match should be streamed I think...

Re: Bernard's Grasscourt Season 2012

I hate how everyone just assumed Bernard retired because he was getting smashed, im also annoyed and cant see how people dislike him so much, Bernard is a gun, in my mind no doubt a future Wimbledon winner, but i doubt he will ever reach number 1 in the world simply because he's not good enough on clay!

I read that Bernard said he's been ill for the past 10 days.

Well, I think he's built himself quite the reputation from things done and said throughout his career, which do him no favors. Then there's his dad who doesn't help things either I guess. Also, some people simply don't like his playing style. But whatever, I don't really let it bother me much...

Anyway, yet another disappointing tournament

Re: Bernard's Grasscourt Season 2012

The draw says his retirement was due to an "Abdominal Disorder."

Re: Bernard's Grasscourt Season 2012

The update from TA said it was stomach cramps and that he should be fine for the upcoming tournaments.

Speaking of the upcoming tournament, at Eastbourne it looks like Bernard will be the 4th seed and get a bye in the first round. So that means one less match. Hopefully he can do something next week to make up and get some matches under his belt going into Wimbledon.
