Dessert in the Desert - Tommy plays Indian Wells

Since Tommy is yummy...

Anyway, the main draw for Indian Wells will be made on Tuesday, March 7th at 1 pm California time and it should be on the internet within a few hours after that. I really, really, really want him to do well here, much better than last year when he lost his first match. I'm bummed I'm not going this year, but its kind of expensive to go down there every year, hard to find a cheap hotel room.

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.

Re: Dessert in the Desert - Tommy plays Indian Wells

When Tommy is good again, I think that his goal should be a quarterfinal (reasonable goal I would say)

and then he can build up on this performance and lead to Miami

also need a bit luck with draw, not every player he likes to play and has to avoid the strongest guns early

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!

Yes since Tommy went out in the 1st Round last year anything above that would be good. And the draw is so important in tennis. I do hope he gets an easy draw. I would like to see him win the Title, of course. But as I said anything above the 1st Round would be good for Tommy

Re: Dessert in the Desert - Tommy plays Indian Wells

It was actually the second round Mae. He had a first round bye last year because he was seeded.

Oh well now he just has to get past the 2nd Round to do better than he did last year Will he be seeded this year?
Or since his ranking dropped last year will that keep him from being seeded? (You know I don't understand these things )

Re: Dessert in the Desert - Tommy plays Indian Wells

Yeah, he will be seeded again as seeding goes by the current rankings. And Indian Wells is one of these very generous Masters Tournaments which has a Grand Slam like draw with 32 seeds, just with the difference that the seeds will play a player called "bye" in the first round So Tommy will def. bye in the first round

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

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

LOL Neely I guess that's where the joke comes from when a player is playing very poorly that "bye" could beat them in the 1st Round. Well it is going to be interesting to see what kind of a draw Tommy is going to get.
