Re: James in 2011

^Yup, he made it into the MD for Stockholm. He entered Vienna, but didn't immediately make the MD (6th alternate).

James also entered the Sacramento Challenger the week of October 3rd (2 weeks before Stockholm). Karlovic also entered!

Re: James in 2011

That's a good chance to earn some points. James didn't play much this year, so I'm pleased that he decided to enter this challenger before Stockholm.

Re: James in 2011

Sacramento CH results:
R1: James def. A. Delic 6-4 7-5 in 90 minutes.
R2: James def. Guccione 6-4 6-4 in 58 minutes.
He won 81% 1st serve and 94% 2nd serve points and never faced a BP in this match.
QF: James def. Sock 6-4 6-2 in 62 minutes.
SF: James def. Alex Kuznetsov 6-2 7-5 in 67 minutes.
Never faced a BP in this match either.

The final is on Sunday against a MUCH tougher opponent - Ivo Karlovic. I think we all know how much James "loves" to play against Ivo, so this should be interesting.

The good news is that James is guaranteed to get more ranking points this week (60 or 100) than he has to defend in Stockholm (45). Stockholm is the only points he has to defend until February, so his ranking will be staying above the #75 he is now for awhile.

Re: James in 2011

And Delpo; I am so torn at the moment. Now it would be nice if he capitalized on his form.

The great thing about democracy is that it gives every voter a chance to do something stupid.
