Ferrero def (LL)Dlouhy 6-3 6-3

(LL)L Dlouhy (CZE) replaced N Lapentti (ECU) (left hip)...

edit: Devilder goes through, still a joke that you had 2 players playing for just 20 points... pathetic...

Yes, Devilder went through. This was basically dead match (which it wouldn't have been if Lapentti stayed in) and Ferrero knew so beforehand, that's why he was kind of angry.

Right. Because one player retired, only the match between Ferrero and Devilder now counts, so Devilder goes through.

So in fact both players were out of contention even before the match started. A jewel of RR.

Ferrero didn't even want to plat, but finally he was convinced.

The title should be corrected. Ferrero did NOT advance, Devilder did. And yes, RR is a farse.

I know he didn't, but he stopped losing in 1R. I hope it's just the first step, but as far as I know, those RG winners hardly ever go back on top

Re: Ferrero def (LL)Dlouhy 6-3 6-3

it needs to be said, at least i can't complain about RR being predictable, and disadvantaging the small guy

here we have the opposite effect, totally unexpected, and probably against the intention of the organisers who put the system in

ps. maybe the system can be 'enhanced' by closing this 'loophole'... it should make sure that if one player in the group pulls out, the remaining higher ranked player will advance

I posted this in another thread:

Lapentti beated Devilder, Devilder beated Ferrero...

Ferrero had chances to qualify by beating Lapentti, but the player from Ecuador withrawed.

So Ferrero had to play a death match with Dlouhy (the replacement), and the Spanish didn't want to play the match, but the organization was able to convince him, and the match started with an hour of delay.

Then Devilder dissapeared, the organization had no idea of where he was. The rumour was that he was already outside the country, because he thought he was out of the tournament. Ferrero was pissed off, because he was going through to quarters because of the retirement of two players.

Finally, Devilder communicated with the organization and will play the quarterfinal.
