DC deliciousness - Tommy in Washington

Tommy's 10th seed, which comes with a first round bye. Then probably a Spaniard, Ferrero or Robredo. Other seeds in his quarter are Gonzalez and Andreev.

Full draw

DC is a 500 event, so lot's of points to win. Go Tommy!

Re: DC deliciousness - Tommy in Washington

Whoops, of course what I wrote is wrong, first up in Tommy's 2nd round is Dancevic or a qualifier.

Re: DC deliciousness - Tommy in Washington

It's a funny draw overall...
Seed 1 vs Seed 16
2 vs 15
3 vs 14
...
8 vs 9

Re: DC deliciousness - Tommy in Washington

Yeah, I read about that in the other forum. Weird. Too much of a coincidence, actually. But what the hell ...

Re: DC deliciousness - Tommy in Washington

Fish (8th seed on this draw) has withdrawn from LA with an injury. If he withdraws from Legg Mason, would Tommy move up as a seed, or would they put in a Lucky Loser? Qualifying is going on this weekend. I'm going to go to the final and maybe during the week if Tom is playing. Will post a report if I go.

Re: DC deliciousness - Tommy in Washington

The fields seem to get stronger IMHO as these Tournaments go on toward the U.S. Open. Because more players from other countries start coming to the U.S. (and Canada) to play in at least some of these Tournaments. I was so disappointed after L.A. I think I will keep my expectations low this time.

Re: DC deliciousness - Tommy in Washington

USTA upped the point value for DC and dropped it for Indy. That's a major reason for the greater player interest.

Re: DC deliciousness - Tommy in Washington

2nd round opponent will be Dancevic. He's pretty dangerous on American hardcourts, Tommy should definitely pay attention!

Re: DC deliciousness - Tommy in Washington

Sad another scoring site to have to look at I'm not penning my hopes on a Tournament win like I was in L.A. I just hope Tommy can advance in the Tournament to pick up points.

Re: DC deliciousness - Tommy in Washington

So far so good--Tommy leads in the 1st Set 4-1 I hope he feels more comfortable in D.C. than L.A. He just didn't seem to be that happy Tommy we had been seeing as of late in L.A. I hope he gets that look and feeling back--fingers crossed
