Re: Houston Entry List (updated February 27, 2013)

Woah huge jump down the rankings after Verdasco. Monfils will be chomping at the bit to get into that draw after resting through IW & Miami and as 1st alternate you'd think he is likely to get a chance.

Gastão in the Entry List here... This tournament is related with IMG? Every year they give one WC in an american tournament to him, maybe he'll get the MD here.

Re: Houston Entry List (updated March 3, 2013)

Houston's height over the sea always was a benefit for certain hard court players. I believe certain players like Isner, Haas, Harrison, Querrey and Berankis will go ahead on here.

[B]My hall of fame: Roger Federer-Rafael Nadal-Jo Wilfried Tsonga-David Ferrer-Juan Carlos Ferrero-Tommy Haas- Radek Stepanek-Lleyton Hewitt-David Nalbandian-Guillermo Cañas-Carlos Moya-Pete Sampras-Petr Korda- Kent Carlsson-Richard Krajicek-Karol Kucera-Tim Henman-Alex Corretja-Thomas Muster-Michael Stich-Pat Cash-Patrick Rafter-Darren Cahill-Ivan Lendl-Mats Wilander-Miloslav Mecir-Karel Novacek-Joakim Nystrom-Henrik Sundstrom-Hans Simonsson-Anders Jarryd-Jimmy Connors-Bjorn Borg-Guillermo Vilas.

Re: Houston Entry List (updated March 3, 2013)

I would like to see Gael make a run here. At his best he is way better on clay than anyone in the draw.



Stronga,Monfils,DelPo,Nalbandian,Berdych,Gulbis,Ha as and Djokovic are the players I support the most.

I had thought that this tournament was going to end?

Strong list if you look at the ranking..
Weak list if you look at the level of the players..

I think you can take all the players in the category "has a high ranking but plays bad" and you have the Houston EL

TT singles: - Rank 130 (+113 in 2013)
Finals: CH Buenos Aires'12, Fut Poitiers'13
GS: AO13:Q+R1, FO13:Q+R2, WI13: QR2
TT doubles: - Rank 94 (+175 in 2013)
Titles: CH Buenos-Aires'12, Fut Poitiers'13 , CH Caltanisseta'13, ATP Bogota (with Fickelgruber)
PAW: Rank 36 (Race: 19)
FITD: W Kuala Lumpur'12, Dusseldorf'13, 2nd Sydney'13
DTT: W Doubles (w. goOudinUSA)

So does Almagro and Haas, who are in front of Monaco in the ranking.
And don't go into the Casablanca thread, or you'll be more appalled to find that Wawrinka getting a WC into a field that has 1 Top 30 players. Then again, you won't bcos Wawrinka is not really on your agenda.
