Re: David's 2008 Schedule and Results

David doesn't have good memories at Halle at all, so I'm not surprised that he doesn't want to play there this year. In 2005 he lost in straight sets to Schuettler in the 1st round, but the main talking point of course was David's absolutely disgraceful behaviour that day. He went absolutely beserk, repeatedly smashed and tossed his racket, abused officials, delayed play for 10 minutes, was given a 2 game penalty, and tanked the last couple of games.
In 2007 he was the victim as Gicquel registered the first victory of his career on grass.
The grass at Queen's plays much better and is a of a higher quality than the grass at Halle (and Wimbledon for that matter), which gets so worn out during the latter part of the week.
David is also confirmed to play at the Boodles Challenge exho a week before Wimbledon. This will be the 6th consecutive year that he will participate there. He took part in the main 8 man exho event in 2003, 2004 and 2007, plus he played one-off matches there in 2005 and 2006.

He wants to try new things this year. Sounds interesting.
The choice to replace Halle and Vienna with Queens and Stockholm proved to be profitable for David.

Talk to the hand because the ears don't hear you.
