Going for the Jackpot in 'Lost Wages' - Tommy hits the desert...

Heh, Lost Wages is a nickname for Las Vegas (since so many people go there to gamble and lose thier money!).

Tommy might decide to pull out of this tournament, but I think he should play. He has a pretty decent draw, so he could do well here. Go Tommy!

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

I think he should withdraw.
He must maintain the good physical ability in front of Indian Wells.

Fee whether Tommy plays or not I love the thread title you came up with And I saw a delayed broadcast of the Memphis Finals and Tommy is really playing some great tennis now. So what does he do-- take a rest or keep playing while he is on a roll? Who knows? It's up to Tommy, but man he looked good

I've heard that you can't withdraw if you're still in a tounament.
And the withdrawal deadline was yesterday at noon..
So I think he will play!
After this he's got almost a week off to play IW right!? It's not too hard,
cuz Tommy is playing sooo amazing!!
I think he wants to win his 3rd tournament!!

Re: Going for the Jackpot in 'Lost Wages' - Tommy hits the desert...

Well I went to the ATP site and clicked on to The Tennis Channel Open and got the Order of Play for today and Tommy isn't listed so I know he isn't playing today for sure. I was told in another Forum that while you aren't supposed to withdraw from one Tournament while you are playing in another that it has recently been done by a couple of players. But I haven't heard anything about Tommy withdrawing.

Re: Going for the Jackpot in 'Lost Wages' - Tommy hits the desert...

Since Tommy won a final on Sunday, he does not have to play his first round match until Tuesday. He can ask for a Wednesday match, if the tournament is able to accomodate that, but it means that he would play 5 days straight to win the title.

It's alright Fee. I think the threads are going to be blended together. I guess I'm not the only one that gets mixed up in these threads and their titles so it kind of makes me feel better

I know I wouldn't want to do that! But let me tell you Tommy looked in good enough shape to play 15 days straight without a problem I think these two threads we got started on the LV Tournament are going to be blended together at least I hope they are.

Re: Las Vegas: Going for the Jackpot in 'Lost Wages' - Tommy hits the desert...

no problem, it's good to see that there is so much activity that duplicate threads do happen I merged the two threads and added Las Vegas in the title so that it is clear for everybody who is on first glance not familiar with that Las Vegas is in the desert or called 'lost wages'.

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

Re: Las Vegas: Going for the Jackpot in 'Lost Wages' - Tommy hits the desert...

Yes critical it could be
maybe Fee is true and Tommy could not play and wants to concentrate for Masters Tournament coming

I hope he makes a few matches, he has win already 2 titles this season, so not bad

he must also gain masters points to fill up ranking
but if he plays in las Vegas I hope he is fine and good

Tommy

Albert Costa forever +++ Tommy Haas +++ Ivo Karlovic +++ Peter Luczak


RAFA owns Fedclown ~~~ H2H record 14-7 -- ~~~ 3 different GS finals included
Byebye Fedjerk, your dominance period is over! Nadal will win like 10 more Slams!



Zero tolerance against dopers!
