CH Nottingham Finals: G. Muller def. M. Bachinger 76(4) 62

In news highly relevant to about 4 MTF members right now, Gilles Muller finally overcomes his Finals losing streak (6 losses in a row. S-I-X) and wins a CH title, making Nottingham his first title win since Izmir 2008.

This will hopefully help propel him back to the Top 100, where he belongs, and to the main draws of higher level events. And my TV screen.
No idea how his injury is holding up right now, but hopefully with this new rush of confidence things become more stable.


Also, Muller's insideout forehand > your fav's. Discuss.

If he manages to stay injury-free he will be TOP 100 soon. Do you think he has a chance of making the main draw of Wimbledon?

RAFAEL NADAL and GRIGOR DIMITROV

Rafa winning at least one slam in 10 consecutive years is the best achievement in Open Era tennis since Laver won all 4 Grand slam tournaments in the same year!


Don't ever underestimate the heart of a champion!

This win puts him in the Top 100 already (#93 I think), it's just a question of how well he can sustain it.
I think this does get him into the main draw, but I don't know the Wimbledon seeding system so well, so not 100% sure.

Re: CH Nottingham Finals: G. Muller def. M. Bachinger 76(4) 62

Now this was the best Final on show today.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Wimbledon seeding system doesn't change the entry list in any way.

Gilles! He wins a challenger, I'm so surprised! Hope he has a great grass court season after somewhat meagre last weeks.

The Wimbledon EL came out weeks ago, and he wasn't top 100 then, so he needs to play qualis next week. But he has a very good chance to succeed there.

He unfortunately is not in Wimbledon directly, but this does give him a good shot to make the USO direct. He had a very good week and was dominant on serve throughout. Hopefully he can continue this form through Wimbledon and show his grass court prowess.
