Re: James in 2011

Sarasota CH F: James def. Bogomolov Jr 6-2 6-2!!!

His ranking is now up to #109. The cutoff for the Wimbledon main draw is next week, so he could make it if he has a good week - might be close.

James is the #8 seed in Savannah and drew a qualifier for R1.

Re: James in 2011

Great week for James! He didn't even drop a set. Hope he can repeat that in Savannah! Now I'd like to know more about his plans for next weeks.

Re: James in 2011

Why he didn't start at the French Open?

Which tournament will he play next?

Re: James in 2011

^ James wasn't ranked high enough to make the main draw for the French Open and he didn't enter qualifying. My guess is that at this time in his career he didn't like his chances of actually qualifying (was ranked #149 and had only played 2 clay matches this year at the time of the entry deadline). The funny thing is if he had entered qualifying, he would have been the #6 seed.

His next tournament is Wimbledon - he's #2 on the alternate list. There's always several withdrawals before the draw is made, so he will very likely make the main draw.

Re: James in 2011

Thanks KarlyM!

But why he didn't play yet at the World Team Cup, he is in the squad?

Re: James in 2011

Can't wait to see how he does at Wimbledon. Maybe better than last year anyway.
