Re: Week 27: Winnetka (Entry List)

Super excited Latvian Martins Podzus is into the main draw! If I heard correctly he'll play Young in the first round? Shame Janis Podzus couldn't get through his last qualifier match too. Would have loved to see both of them make it though.

McClune is poor poor poor mans Roddick. Similar serve motion, great serve, but McClune can't stay in a longer rally to save his life.

Yeah. Forehand is ok too but bad movement and absolutely no topspin backhand.

Close guess They have a place, where they are staying, when they are in the US. They are staying at some Latvian family, I am just not sure, if those are relatives or not. Probably they will schedule it differently in future, but currently they have these longer periods of time, when they leave to the US, stay there for some time and play some consecutive futures tournaments.

Good to see Mārtiņš, the more talented bro, being able to qualify Of course, he must have done that with his qualifying draw. The main draw is not kind, but let's see, what he can do. I guess it will be streamed, which is excellent news for me. So far I have seen Podžus brothers playing only in Latvian national championships But have never seen them playing international events.

I am only a bit puzzled, why they didn't sign up for doubles here, it has a rather weak list and not even 16 pairs in the draw

Nor of Vince Spadea nor Jonathan Stark...--all ranked in the world’s top one hundred at one point in 1995. Nor of Jeff Tarango, sixty-eight in the world, unless you remember his unfortunate psychotic breakdown in full public view during last year’s Wimbledon.

Re: Week 27: Winnetka (Entry List)

I watched the last two sets of Myneni and Nevolo. Not sure what compelled me to watch. Awful, awful match. Made it clear why Nevolo has been struggling to win matches in futures.

Myneni didn' t have to do much. Nevolo was spraying errors left and right. Can't believe I watched til the end, awful match.

Re: Week 27: Winnetka (Entry List)

It will rain all day in Winnetka? I googled " Winnetka weather " it says 30% rain all day... any chance of play today? I was exciting to see Young play. Is there any chance matches will be moved indoor, do they have indoor courts?
