Re: Farmers Classic, Los Angeles: Paire Seeded #1

yeah guys, but this tournament is played the same week as the Olympics If I'm correct. I'm pretty sure it is, but didn't check it out. It might turn out to be an interesting tournament. plus, one of these lower ranked guys, get to win a title and most of them can gain some points and improve their rankings.

He is going to crumble under the weight of expectation. I bet the tournament directors are praying for some vultures to swoop in at the last minute now and save this tournament...

Worst line-up I have ever seen for a 250. There have been Challengers with more depth than this tournament. At least 4 year ago you had guys like JMDP (who was on the rise) and Roddick competing at these events.

The only thing I can think of is that Gulbis had a chance of making the Olympics if a player withdrew from a weak nation. On the ladies side, Kanepi from otherwise unrepresented Estonia withdrew so the ITF picked Duque-Marino over higher ranked players just because Colombia wasn't represented on the ladies side. Stakhovsky got an ITF pick and he was only two spots ahead of Gulbis at the deadline.

Since the only withdrawals on the men's side came from Spain and France, that possibility never came into play.

You must be right and Ernests was still holding out hope for the Olympics. I remember after he beat Murray in that exho before RG, he told the interviewer he would love to play in London but would need a wildcard. Looks like he was pretty damn close if Stakhovsky was given the spot. Disappointing...

Even without Ernests , this could still potentially be a fun tournament, though. Paire and Baker have a real shot at their first title and it would be a great final if they both make it that far, with Benoit seeking revenge after losing to Brian at Wimbledon.

Brian is a seed. EPIC.

Re: Farmers Classic, Los Angeles: Paire Seeded #1

The number one seed is oh so low ranked, but the 8th seed (ranked 79 on drawsheet) and last direct entry (119 on drawsheet) aren't too bad. In 2009, Newport had a 90th ranked 8th seed and a 159 last direct acceptance.
