Re: 2010: Next stops

Every tournament is going to be tough for James because of his ranking, but I am sure he can win something and get his ranking back to be seeded at Wimbledon!

Re: 2010: Next stops

I'm surprised James & Marcos have never played each other before. Good luck to James!

Re: 2010: Next stops

James lost to Baghdatis 64 62... I didn't watch the match, because my net connection sucks. I don't know if James played badly, or if Marcos played very well... but I'm a bit disappointed because of this result... It seems to be no fight, especially in 2nd set...

Re: 2010: Next stops

I didn't get to see the match. The stats from the live-score are NOT good.



I noticed in a couple pics from the match that his right knee was taped - the one that was bothering him during the Del Potro match (and something was said about tendinitis). I wonder if that had anything to do with this loss or it was just a bad day.

Re: 2010: Next stops

^ I better get my drinks ready.

At least James has a shot at being seeded 7th or 8th for Delray Beach. Hopefully he can get a better draw there.

Re: 2010: Next stops

According to what was posted in the Memphis main draw thread, James drew himself against Andy.

Re: 2010: Next stops

James is also in the Memphis doubles draw partnering with Bobby Reynolds (both need the extra court time ). They face Huss/Levinsky in R1.

Re: 2010: Next stops

James lost to Andy 3-6 6-4 6-7(3).
There was no stream for this match, but his stats were pretty good.

James is done in Memphis - he also lost yesterday in doubles (4-6 4-6).

Re: 2010: Next stops

Just another bad draw
Maybe James will go to challenger during clay court season? I don't see him getting lots of points in Europe. As for Challengers, he could win a couple of them and get his ranking back.
