Re: Calabasas, USA, $50k+H

I suppose Bogomolov didn`t originally put his name of the entry list. Having said that as an American player ranked 113 I`m sure he could have gotten a wild card if he`d wanted one. However as he has only won 2 matches since the Australian Open, I presume he has chosen to play the Qualies as a way to get a few matches in and regain his confidence by beating what he hopes will be easy opposition. It can be very beneficial coming through the qualifies as it means by the first round the player is match ready, familiar with the surface and confident. One sees higher ranked players do this quite often actually. Of course it can backfire if one of those easy opponents turns out not to be so easy

I support......

Re: Calabasas, USA, $50k+H

Bogie didn't decide to enter the tournament until about Tuesday I think. I guess that's why he had to go through qualies. No special exempts or wildcards available. He was going to play River Oaks with Tursunov, Kendrick and a number of the other players who will also play Houston the following week. Guess he decided points were a little more important than money.

Also, Graydon Oliver is there and planning to play doubles with Travis Parrott this week (ex-partner meet the current partner...) and I hope I can get up there to see them this week. And Zack too.

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.

This is wierd... a seed AND qualifyer...

The reason Alex opted for this challenger: he needs the points this week to gain direct entry to RG.
He is 115th with 362 pts in tommorrow's ranking, and has 12 pts coming off next week. According to my calculation if he wins at Calabasas he will get 402 pts (that includes 2 pts for qualifying, which might be crucial...), which will lift him into the top-100. If he is runner-up he'll have 387 pts and may just make the cut....

Seeds #4 Goldstein, #5 Salzenstein and #6 Ried also can make the cut for RG if they win in Calabasas.
They have 360, 347 and 339 pts respectively, and in case they clinch the title, their tallies would be 398, 385 and 389 (Ried has no points to defend this week, therefor he can get more pts).
#2 seed Elseneer, who occupies #100 spot in tommorrow's ranking and should be safe in the DA list for RG, has 395 pts. Behind him in next week's ranking will be Vicente on 394, Corretja 386, Rusedski 382, Levy 378. They are all idle this week, so their ranking on the entry list for RG depends on results at Calabasas...
