Week off from Managing

Nah it's honestly really not like that, there's five of us, I might sometimes be seen to be the more visible one because I'm online more but it's all a team effort between all five. I just provide the glamour and do the PR

It happened three times already. Now 4th time as it's almost 2 am.
Not for me.
I checked and those 9 points are not in your countables anyway.

The CH win I had today is really good for me, because it means I will no question be in Shanghai qualys, I also might even be lucky enough to nab a seed there.

Yeah I know, just having really poor draw luck lately.

You will make sure I play someone at least lower ranked than I in Mons right.

Did the entry lists earlier and you're 10th in the entry list.

No way - the draw maker decides your fate, not me.

I've been pushed into quallies for my event as defending champion

I saw that I was 10th, so I'll probably get a seed in R1 now.

Sure it does.

That's bad luck, it seems maybe someone is determined to have you leave the top 100, then again, being ranked 80 meant that getting in directly this week was going to be very difficult.

I've decided to be confident about my prospects and have decided I am going to win Kuala Lumpur first which will keep me there

To have you, Marto and Gav out of the top 100 would just not be right.

I suppose the upside is that next year we have less to defend and more chances - it's all part of the fun. For me that's only one part of the game, I also like the getting to know the players with the interviews and stuff, I've made some great friends from it.

Yes, I've of course got to know you better here, but if your friends aren't ranked near enough to where you are, you maybe won't see them as much and can't play doubles with them.

That's a case in point

I've not had many doubles partners long term, been partners with Bruno for 2 years, and have partnered Mateusz over in TF for 4 years now.

Adey, you won Beijing from qualys last year, entry ranked #196 at that, beating some excellent players along the way, I wonder how many people have done such a thing, surely you can do something similar again.

It was a lucky event for me - perhaps Beijing will be as lucky for me playing the game as Helsinki has been for me in managing

Where are you planning to play for the rest of the year - do you work out schedules or just look week-by-week?
