Re: Week 14: Tallahassee (Entry List)

If Benni is in any form at all, he makes the finals here. The top half of the draw is so much weaker than the bottom half. Lu is injured, Kudry is injured, Ito doesn't play well outside of Asia and this is Odesnik's first event since injury as well. It's basically a layup, so we'll see what happens.

I think B. Baker can make the QF here, hopefully he can do it.

Reynolds vs Yani winner is in with a good shot at the semis, but if Rendy is actually able to give a full performance, he will make the SF. That section all depends on his health status.

The third section is by far the toughest one. Levine, Dancevic, Kuznetsov vs Smyczek R1, Zverev vs Kunitsyn R1. I'm going with Dancevic. Frank knows a spot at the French Open is available if he wins this event and will be motivated. But I have a feeling Smyczek beats him in R2. Very wide open.

The bottom half is also interesting. Olivetti gets a lot of hype here, but I don't see him as a threat at this event. Pospisil has played a lot of tennis lately and Ball can upset him in R1. I'm going with a Ram vs Russell QF. Mikey likes these courts, he has a 3-1 H2H over Sweeting and the other players are all attackers, and Ram and Ball especially like to come to net, which is what Mikey likes. He needs to do what's required and win through that section.

Re: Week 14: Tallahassee (Entry List)

Dancevic is in as an ALT I see and instantly becomes a contender for the title imo, assuming he can carry his hot form in to this week!

Re: Week 14: Tallahassee (Entry List)

Sweeting v Russell, Smyczek v Kuznetsov, Pospisil v Ball, Becker v Odesnik...wow, what a shame for the tournament to have all these in R1....

It would be really great if somebody can do this for the futures events.

Re: Week 14: Tallahassee (Entry List)

agreed with filo here basically in everything
lu would probably win it without his injury. both bakers can reach quarters

Did Dancevic get a WC? Because he wasn't on the EL...

Re: Week 14: Tallahassee (Entry List)

Kudryavtsev and Lu both withdrew, so Q/LL have taken their spots and Dancevic is now in the #1 seed position.

Re: Week 14: Tallahassee (Entry List)

With the new draw, Dancevic vs Becker should be the semifinal and the winner is the definite favorite for the title.

Re: Week 14: Tallahassee (Entry List)

But how did Frank get in? Alternates come from the sign up list which Frank wasn't on. Had he been there he would have gotten direct entry. Him being an alternate doesn't make sense

That's what I meant. Maybe it's this loophole thing that if a seeded guy withdraws last minute, they can give out an extra WC.

Re: Week 14: Tallahassee (Entry List)

that's what I'm thinking.

it was my understanding that if qualifying hasn't started then a MD withdrawal gets replaced through the next name on the entry list(until those names are all gone), and if a MD withdrawal comes after qualies started then a LL replaces him. The only time which I thought the highest ranked qualifying sign in player gets in is if they've exausted all entries on the entry list which I highly doubt they did here, but he's listed as an ALT in the draw so if that didn't happen I'm not quite sure what did

Unless there's some 5 minute loophole that I didn't know about between the time the qualies draw comes out and the OOP is posted in which the highest guy from there gets in as an ALT, but if there is I've nevere heard of it.

No complaining here, Frank needs points here to get into the french directly. Hopefully he can have a big week.
