Re: Predict who will qualify into the Wimbledon MD.

I just hope Baker makes it. Otherwise the Wimbledon organisers are silly for electing to give WCs to some fodder like Jamie Baker et al. .

Re: Predict who will qualify into the Wimbledon MD.

My predictions:
Zopp (I do not think he's qualifying, but I'm picking him b/c he's the safe pick. I think he goes down R2.)
Hernych
Gil
Sugita (I expect either he or Alves to qualify. I want to pick Russell but can't ignore his grass record)
Levine
Smyczek (most consistent player in section)
Farah
Ram
Bolelli (Simone has an easy draw but tricky players who can cause him problems)
Bubka
Baker (winner between he and Gremelmayr qualifies, IMO)
Clement (can't see anyone in the section beating him if he's motivated)
Brugues-Davi (I don't think Bemelmans will qualify and Brugues has been playing better of late)
Reynolds (winner between he and Chovjka qualifies)
Kudla (going safe, but this section is totally unpredictable for me)
Berankis

Re: Predict who will qualify into the Wimbledon MD.

Baker got into a great section, but I think Gremelmayr and Grigelis will cause him problems. I don't think Brian's game adapts well to grass. Luckily he's in a section with weak servers so his return should come in handy.

Re: Predict who will qualify into the Wimbledon MD.

Does anyone know what happened to Luke Saville? Last year's junior champ was down for a qualifying wild card but is not in the draw (no, he hasn't been promoted to a main draw wild card).

Re: Predict who will qualify into the Wimbledon MD.

I thought all Wimbledon junior champions get a MD WC for next year. I think it's sort of a tradition. I may be wrong but the guy may just be injured .

Winning boys' Wimbledon pretty much guarantees you at least a qualifying wild card, and if you're ranked high enough/ are promising enough, you get a main draw wild card. Saville was not going well enough on the men's tour to be granted a main draw wild card. Same thing happened to Márton Fucsovics who won boys' Wimbledon in 2010.

(Sorry Filo V. for going off topic.)

Re: Predict who will qualify into the Wimbledon MD.

Benjamin Mitchell
Jan Hernych
Marsel Ilhan
Yuichi Sugita (though much prefer Russell)
Jesse Levine
Tim Smyczek
Javier Marte
Marco Chiudinelli (though crossing fingers for Dreddy)
Simone Bolelli (sucker's pick, I know)
Yannick Mertens
Brian Baker
Daniel Gimeno-Traver
Farrukh Dustov (probably the biggest crapshoot - if there'd been a British WC here, might have picked it)
Nikola Ciric
Denis Kudla
Andrey Kuznetsov (though I like Berankis if he wins their R1 match)

Andy Murray: 2012 Olympic gold and silver medalist. US Open Champ. Wimbledon champ. Never been prouder of him.

The Brian Baker Story. Proof that truth is stranger than fiction... until Hollywood buys the rights and proceeds to keep screwing the script up.

I SWEAR I just saw him in the order of play for tomorrow's qualifying, but when I went back to look it up, he wasn't there.

Hopefully Rica can get the qualification, others just don't care...
