Re: Wimbledon qualifiers

Mahut if he's not too tired. Tomic. Maybe Dent.

Re: Wimbledon qualifiers

Berankis is the real deal for me, could get a scalp or two depending on the draw.

Re: Wimbledon qualifiers

As a Lithuanian i must bet for Berankis, he plays very well on the grass at the moment, won nottingham challenger two weeks ago, and drop only 1 set in 8 matchs.

Agreed. He is playing by far the best tennis of any of these guys.

Re: Wimbledon qualifiers

Fischer I think is going to be dangerous. He likes grass and he's been playing well.

Mahut obviously is the most dangerous, and I wouldn't rule out even a 4th round/QF run if he is fresh enough to continue his fine form.

I think Ball has a chance to make the 3rd round or so.

Berankis I think can win a match or two depending on his draw, and he's the most talented of the guys who qualified.

Kendrick, Bozoljac, Tomic, Dent, Ilhan and Alcaide (because of his serve) all have a chance to win a match also, depending on their draws. The rest should be first round losers.

Re: Wimbledon qualifiers

Quite surprised at Kamke and Dodig qualifying.

Alcaide, Mahut, Fischer and Berankis could all be dangerous, Alcaide because of his serve mostly. The other 3 play well grass and are playing well.

Kamke had a pretty easy draw really. Levine sucks now and Tobias is in good form.

Dodig has a good serve and decent net/baseline ability, he's not great but he has a game that can play well on grass. Neither likely will win a match in the MD unless they play someone horrible on grass.

I agree about your dangerous guys, I really think Fischer could do some serious damage.

Re: Wimbledon qualifiers

I think 2 the most dangerous floaters are Fischer and Berankis...lithuanian is on 8 match winning streak on grass, winning challenger on grass a couple of weeks ago, and austrian is playing very well for a past few weeks as well. Usual suspects are Mahut and Dent of course ( only if frenchman will have something in the tank for a MD)

Re: Wimbledon qualifiers

Mahut He'll get enough rest till at least Monday to be dangerous.

to Dodig for making the MD. If the draw is kind enough, he can win a round with that big serve and solid groundies.
