Re: Week 24 : Nottingham-2 Challenger (Entry List)

So Matosevic didn't get an SE because he didn't sign up for the tournament at all? Strange. Couldn't he get a wc?
And he would be seeded first, now he wont be seeded?

1 Correct.

2 Yes, but the tournament logically preferred to give it to British players rather than some relatively unknown Australian guy.

3 Correct.

Re: Week 24 : Nottingham-2 Challenger (Entry List)

He is more of an interesting player now after this year's resukts. And why does he play qualis here and not in queens? He would have made it in time there right?

Re: Week 24 : Nottingham-2 Challenger (Entry List)

Pretty disappointing to not see Baker in this main draw. Nottingham 2 is atrocious, particularly compared to the tournament in the same venue the week before.

I think he could have made it to Queen's in time, but he probably decided that since he was still in singles and doubles the day before he would have needed to be on-site in London should he then lose in both draws (that's a 175-kilometer distance), it was a smarter and less rushed decision to stay in Nottingham.

Of course he is a more interesting player to people who follow the sport closely, but I doubt most people in Nottingham would prefer cheering for Matosevic over British players.

In any case, Marinko lost in Q2.

Marinko must have been too tired to take it.

I don't think Jones is an easy opponent, especially on grass. And I think grass might be Marinko's worst surface.

He has time now to find his form on the surface. He's in the doubles draw with Duckworth, so he can have loads of practice sessions all week before heading to Eastbourne Qualies (at least, I presume that's where he'll go).

Re: Week 24 : Nottingham-2 Challenger (Entry List)

There is wall-to-wall rain forecast in Nottingham this week. Any idea at what point they would have to start playing all the matches indoors? Say if they can't play outside at all today or tomorrow?

Juan Martin Del Potro

David Ferrer - Tommy Haas - Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

Andy Roddick - Juan Carlos Ferrero - Mardy Fish

Re: Week 24 : Nottingham-2 Challenger (Entry List)

Kuznetsov does not look good at all right now with the grass. Surprising since I think he won junior Wimbledon so I guess an adjustment period is needed. Ilhan is playing passably well, though.
