Oops - lost to an unknown older player ranked 1489. Not too impressive, even if it is first match back...

Re: It's nice to have you Carsten.

Are there any updates for us on Carsten? I really hope he has not pulled the plug. I certainly miss him.

Re: It's nice to have you Carsten.

Last heard he is coaching in California, wherever home is. Just playing local tournaments and not travelling much.
Sounds like he is settling down in suburbia...

Re: It's nice to have you Carsten.

Thank you for the update RustyOz. I really thought he may have made it big at one stage. At the very least he could still have a career in doubles should he want it.

Re: It's nice to have you Carsten.

Thanks Consigliere for posting that scoreline. I know Carsten has been very good to Greg hosting him in his house. Hopefully the two of them get serious, injury free and comeback strong.

Re: It's nice to have you Carsten.

Ball and Jones went down the next round to USA pairing McDonald/Redlicki 63 76(4).
They served 13 aces to their opponents 3 aces, and still went down.

So a short lived return for Ball.

It will be be interesting to see of they play again next week.

Re: It's nice to have you Carsten.

The fact that Carsten played with somebody else and did fairly well shows (to me at least) that this may be a somewhat-serious attempt at a comeback, if only in doubles.
