Flanagan does it again!!!

A day after beating last year's Wimbledon runner-up, Flanagan returned to Queen's Club and swiftly dispatched Romania's Victor Hanescu 7/6 (4) 6/3. He was dominant on serve throughout and never faced a break point in the entire encounter. He will now go on to play either Sebastien Grosjean or Todd Reid in the 3rd round. This win would provisionally put him up in the rankings from 866 to 588, with a shock win in the 3rd round putting him at just outside the top 400!!

Flanagan.

Re: Flanagan does it again!!!

But he won't play Wimbledon right? Or does he have a WC or something??

Nadal ~ Fish [Fisho] ~ Ferrero [Juancho] ~ Hewitt [Llautó] ~ Nalbandian

Re: Flanagan does it again!!!

He rang up Alan Mills yesterday and asked for one! I think he will get one now as he proved that the victory over the Poo wasn't just a fluke.

Re: Flanagan does it again!!!

Good for Flanagan, I just hope the press will leave him alone and don't expect miracles from him.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

The LTA has a tournament by which they determine the other Britsih wild cards (aside from the automatic four); Flanagan was told that he'd have to play a match today in it, but he refused. Wise decision I think, given he is still alive in the Queens draw, but I don't know where it leaves him for Wimbledon.

So he can leave for this LTA tourney today ?

He's on a streak here. I love it when these kinds of players and their results continue.

He has forfeited his first round match in the LTA pre-qualies already by w/o, and all the second rounds have been played so there is no way he can enter Wimbledon that way. I reckon he will get a wildcard. The media fallout if he didn't would be appalling.
