Re: Where is Dmitry Tursunov?

Tursunov was #98 when the main draw entry closed 6 weeks back. So he was 23 out from the cut at #76. Cut fell to #83 by draw time today, and he was quite a few spots out.

He is in the qualifying list and should be in the draw when it is made an hour from now tuesday night.

Actually the qual draw is out. Tursunov is the 3rd seed and plays Julien Knowle

(3)Dimitry Tursunov (RUS)
Julian Knowle (AUT)

Hugo Armando (USA)
(20)Eric Taino (USA)

My bet is:

Dimitry won Knowle
Eric won Armando

Dimitry won Eric

Jay - thanks for the information...I didn't realize that the cut-off was so far in advance.

I'd like to know where his head was in that first set . But since I've been following his results it doesn't seem like Dmitry is the quickest starter .

PAW 2013:
Munich - 2nd place
Halle - 4th place
's-Hertogenbosch - 4th place
GSTAAD - WINNER

Wink

I think he likes to warm up during the match, not before of it.......Remains me of somebody we all know.

Tursunov Books Main Draw Spot

California-based Russian Dmitry Tursunov booked his place in the main draw of the Pacific Life Open with a 3-6, 6-3, 6-2 victory over Hugo Armando in the final round of qualifying on Thursday. Tursunov, who moved from Moscow to Sacramento, California at the age of 12 and now lives in Roseville, reached the quarterfinals in Memphis last month.

The 21-year-old will meet former Australian Open champion Thomas Johansson in the first round of the main draw in what will be his first ATP Masters Series tournament. The winner of the Tursunov-Johansson match will meet two-time defending champion Lleyton Hewitt in the third round.

Joining Tursunov in the main draw will be last week’s Acapulco finalist Fernando Verdasco after the Spaniard defeated American Robert Kendrick. Verdasco will now meet Frenchman Nicolas Escude in the first round of the main draw.
