Madrid Open: vamos Tommy!

True enough, Tommy's in the quali draw.

So weird. Don't know any of those guys he will/may face in the qualis. This will be interesting.
Will Tommy reach the MD?

Re: Madrid Open: vamos Tommy!

I don't know, he can lose against anyone on clay.

But his draw looks fine.

Re: Madrid Open: vamos Tommy!

Tommy will be hitting the court soon! OOP

Btw, is it just me or is the official tournament website completely bonkers ...?

Re: Madrid Open: vamos Tommy!

Match is underway ... and Tommy just broke to a 3-1 lead.

EDIT

And Tommy takes the first 6-2. Well done. Solid serving, obviously.

Re: Madrid Open: vamos Tommy!

4-1 in the second, looking good.

How are things with the points ... The draw sheets say the qualifier in the end gets 25 points; on the main draw page though, it says a first round participant takes at least 10 points home. So how many points does a qualifier get when he enters the MD in the first round? 35? Or just 25, with the 10 points being for players who directly entered the MD?

EDIT

Tommy wins 6-2, 6-1 ... nice practice. Glad for any further match he gets to play ...

Re: Madrid Open: vamos Tommy!

Good work Tommy! It was only the No. 1816 in the current ranking but it was a nice practice I think. Come on, win another time mate

Re: Madrid Open: vamos Tommy!

Toughest opponent that Tommy can get in the 1st Round of the MD is Wawrinka I think...

Re: Madrid Open: vamos Tommy!

Hope Tommy's an early riser.
Of course wins are nice, and every additional match is a plus ... but then again, I'm not sure what it would do to his confidence if he crushed out of a qualifying ...
So yeah, he should reach the MD and take the extra points (how many that may be) and face whatever awaits him in the first round.
