Re: Luke Saville Cheering Thread

he's not in the draw for the futures tournament so it must be an injury (or the flu). he wouldn't have refused the QWC since i remember him saying a while ago that he was even after a main draw WC.

Re: Luke Saville Cheering Thread

Bit of a cock-up on the scheduling front, it seems.

Re: Luke Saville Cheering Thread

He posted this on Facebook:
"Hi everyone,
Unfortunately I was unable to compete in the qualifying event for the Wimbledon men's singles because I was entered in another tournament at the same time and the Wimbledon committee informed me of my wildcard after the withdrawal deadline had been applied. It was a very confusing situation, however, its in the past now and I am looking ahead to the juniors coming up. My lead up tournament which is the Roehampton Juniors starts on sunday and I will be training very hard in preparation for the first round of that!"

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!
Take a good long stare, you know you want to.
You're not even man enough to look at my face.

Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.
Appeal moderation is always hungry for your soul and sweet emotions.


First and once godly-worhispped appeal moderator.
(Actually 2nd)

Re: Luke Saville Cheering Thread

What a mix up! His management are probably to blame, they must of known he was an extremely likely chance at a qualifying wild card well before it was officially announced.

Good question.
I know Roddick played in the US Open Junior event twice, but not as champion.

I think it was Argentine Guillermo Pérez Roldán who won Roland Garros in 1986 and 1987.
