USO Open qualies draw & talk

I look at that joke of a 13th section, and then take a peak at the 11th section and burst into laughter. These things are often pretty unbalanced but this one moreso than usual IMO

Glad Shapovalov got a decent draw, as well as Schnur. FAA probably won't make it past round 2 and Stakhovsky if he can get there. But that's not too bad for the first time and 17.

I don't have time to do the Predict the Qualifier game but if anybody else wants to run it, now would be the time

Re: USO Open qualies draw & talk

Is it true coaching will be allowed this year in men's qualifying?



a.k.a.
Doktor Carpet -- The Fogmeister -- Ragnar Lothbrok -- Sicario



Do you wonder what I've been doing the last 3 months?

Apparently - only restriction is they can't step on the court.

Re: USO Open qualies draw & talk

Thank god for the warm up clock - every time the chair ump says "2 minutes" they are still taking serves 5 minutes later

Re: USO Open qualies draw & talk

hoping to see these players qualify:

maximilian marterer
christian garin
uladzimir ignatik
noah rubin
yuki bhambri or alexander bublik(really sucks they're in the same section)
casper ruud or simone bolelli
cem ilkel
stefanos tsitsipas
stefano napolitano or quentin halys
darian king

looking at their draws , this is who i think will get through

uladzimir ignatik
alexander bublik
simone bolelli
stefanos tsitsipas
quentin halys
darian king

Great. But the clocks will be applied on the main tournament too or they are just testing the system in qualies?

Too bad, so Dull, Isner and the likes who spend almost a minute between some of their serves will keep getting away with their violations.
