Re: It's nice to have you Carsten.

And he hasn't entered for the French Open Qualies. Someone should get him to leave America and go somewhere else besides Aus/NZ because playing US futures and challengers is wasting his talent.

Loses in the second round. Great way to waste a week.

Seems that way. He rose so quickly but now he has plateaued as he has began to start playing in the US week in week out. Then when he does go overseas he does wierd stuff like only enter in the doubles in a New Zealand futures or go to Thailand to play a Davis Cup doubles match and then leave the place for a NZ futures instead of playing in the Thailand Challengers. It is obvious he has talent but atm it looks like he is joining the long list of Australian players who are failing to realise their potential of late.

Re: It's nice to have you Carsten.

Just bad scheduling. Still has alot of potential but it will be all wasted if he keeps following his current schedule. The loss in the futures tournament was just a one off as he wouldn't have been able to beat Estrella on clay.

Re: It's nice to have you Carsten.

Ball beat Zabaleta in three sets on the Green Clay. Good win for Carsten. He should win his next match against Bass and reach the QF.

Re: It's nice to have you Carsten.

As expected he beat Bass to reach the QF where he has a winnable match against Prodon.

Re: It's nice to have you Carsten.

Carsten had another straight sets victory over Eric Prodon 6-4 7-6. Next up in the semifinals is Xavier Malisse, if he can beat Xavier I think he will win this tournament. If he is able to win this tournament he'll move to about 185 in the world which would be good for him but I wish he would start playing in other countries besides USA, Mexico, Australia and New Zealand. I feel he is wasting his talent but I'm hoping that hes just waiting to establish a place in the top 150 before he starts playing Grand Slam qualies at RG and Wimbledon.

Re: It's nice to have you Carsten.

Well I'm not sure how it happened but Carsten smacked Malisse 6-2 6-3. Faces a british wildcard Ward in the final. I really hope he can take out his first challenger victory here and gain some confidence for the coming weeks and maybe even pick up a few more challenger victories in the US. By the way this tournament is being played on Clay which must make Tennis Australia happy.

Re: It's nice to have you Carsten.

Great win for Carsten. He should beat Ward in the final as well which would be great. Unfortunately it is on green clay and not the red clay although they are still similar. In this form he has a great chance to do well next week based on the entry list. Of those above him on the entry list,

Kim - in FO maindraw so I don't know if he will all that keen to go deep in an American challenger which would only give him a few days at most to prepare for the FO
Spadea and Soeda - In mug form
Udomchoke - Currently playing on Korean Hardcourts
Bogomolov and Warburg - Returning after a long break

And as for the guys below him I don't think many would pose a major threat with the exception of Russell.

Baker (USA) - Bedene (SLO) - Bellucci (BRA) - Berta (SWE) - Cuevas (URU) - Domijan (USA) - Ebden (AUS) - Estrella (DOM) - Grigelis (LTU) - Guccione (AUS) - Heliovaara (FIN) - Kavcic (SLO) - King (BAH) - Kontinen (FIN) - Kubler (AUS) - Lajovic (SRB) - Matosevic (AUS) - McGee (IRE) - Millman (AUS) - Mitchell (AUS) - Nielsen (DEN) - Nieminen (FIN) - Paire (FRA) - Udomchoke (THA)
