Re: entry list

Anyone know the qualifying details?

All I can see on the official site is "Gates Open at 11.00am from Monday 13th to Friday 17th June. Gates Open at 12.00pm on Saturday 18th June (Finals)"
No mention of qualifying at all.

Qualifying is, as you can probably guess, on the Saturday and Sunday. Matches on Saturday are played in the morning and afternoon (2 rounds) and the final qualfiying round is Sunday. Quite when the matches start is a mystery to me, but I would guess 10:00am because that is the LTA's favourite time to get lazy tennis players out of bed by

Re: entry list

Yes I agree Jez, that is what I would have guessed - But should we have to guess?

At least in Futures the ITF site always clearly publishes the times.
But with the 10tele qualifying which will include players in the top 100 one would have thought that it would be publicised to get spectators along - If I was the sponsor of this event I would be very concerned!
I still keep looking at that web site feeling sure I must have missed it, because with qualies just two days away (possibly !) I just cannot believe there is no announcement.
Please tell me that I am wrong and have overlooked this information!

yeah and Ivo is great at making it past 1st round....7 of 12 1st round loses this year.

Ivan has better serve then Ivo and return game 1000 times better.
so Ivan would win 6-4 7-5

From past experience, the website hasn't had a player list posted during the final week before the tournament...very little info is posted on it. I'm pretty sure it will be 10:00am mate

Ivo may have struggled but he is definitely much better on grass where his serve is virtually unbreakable. Sure, Ivan has a great serve but I feel Ivo's is more invincible. Also, the Nottingham courts have a really true bounce and they are very fast...plays into Ivo's hands.

Yes, Ivan's return is tons better, but Ivo can win just as many matches as Ivan 7/6 (11) 7/6 (5).

ivan is the king of fast courts..with the straight heat serve 135-145mph then the just ridicouls kick serve.that Agassi still has bad dreams about from davis cup...then Ivo cant keep up with ivan on ralleys...Ivan backhand is better then Ivo forehand and backhand combained

Yeah I agree on the groundstroke front...Ivo is sh*t and a decent club player could take him on But he doesn't need to rely on that as much on grass...his serve does the talking and when it comes to a tiebreak he just needs to win a point against the serve, most of the time for the set to be his. Because his serve is so lethal, it is on a par with MOST of Ivan's game. The serve counts for 50% of a match...Ivo fulfills the whole 50%. Ivan doesn't...but he isn't that far off.

I could see Ivo knocking off anyone in the Nottingham draw. I reckon he could have a better run than Ivan. Let's see who is right...although I reckon I will lose again!
