#30 Tusunov playing qualifying draw for Zagreb

I just noticed Tursunov is playing the qualifying for an MM tournament in Zagreb. What's up with that? Kind of risky if he's just looking for a few extra matches. Whenever a player does that it seems to backfire and they end up not even making it into the tournament. If Tursunov does qualify it will be very unlucky for whomever draws him as a qualifier because he'd probably be about 5th seed if he just applied straight into the main draw.

It's more for the matches to be honest, can't hit a forehand at a barn door at the moment.

Re: #30 Tusunov playing qualifying draw for Zagreb

Verdasco played qualies at Queens and ended up in the 4th round of Wimbledon where he led Stepanek 2-1 in sets.

Simon played qualies at Casablanca and took the title last year. Stepanek kick started his 2007 season reaching the semis in Gstaad as a qualie and ended up rising from 60 or so to being not far off top 10 at one point.

It can be beneficial, but then Tursunov is the clown who instead of resting a problematic shoulder at the end of the season decides to play a heap of challengers. I wouldn't like to apply logic to him. Maybe the clown just missed the deadline

Re: #30 Tusunov playing qualifying draw for Zagreb

All those instances were players playing qualies because they were late to sign up for the main draw.

I'm sure that's the case.

Thanks! I didn't know they had different deadlines for the draws.

Re: #30 Tusunov playing qualifying draw for Zagreb

Maybe it's to build his confidence up again. He has had some poor results lately. Sometimes he's great and other times I'm surprised I haven't got him in my sig as I seem to have a soft spot for inconsistency!

Re: #30 Tusunov playing qualifying draw for Zagreb

obviously a late entrant, same happened with Simon last year in bucharest and he ended up winning the title, ah well the way dima is playing that happening again is very unlikely

I would say so

He isn't the smartest tactician on court...and he probably isn't too smart with scheduling either.

Re: #30 Tusunov playing qualifying draw for Zagreb

He was definitely late for the deadline, but it has been mentioned they offered him a WC and he declined, so perhaps he wants a few matches under his belt.
