I guess that he's thinking that a win or two in Casablanca and any win in the others and it will be worth it. Also, I think he just wants to play at the highest level possile between now and retirement. From what he said at the start of the season, he doesn't seem interested in playing too much at challengers and will retire if he's restricted to challengers.

Might as well do what he feels is right, enjoy his tennis and not get too caught up counting ranking points.
Although if things don't go well over the Euro clay season then Pete will most likely play clay court challengers for the rest of the year after Wimbledon and try to get his ranking up high enough to make 2012 worth playing.

A match that Luczak will be expecting to win if he's planning on playing tour events. Peya's a good player, but as long as Looch plays well then I'd be confident.

This has already been discussed numerous times. His last year on tour, there weren't clay challengers during the Sth American circuit. So he should go home and pull his dick during this time.

He played them when on offer. He is not 21 anymore.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: The "Peter Luczak" Cheering Thread!

Also, the MD in Casablanca isn't the strongest. Especially the bottom quarter, where there are 3 qualifying spots. A big run in a clay ATP event, which he's capable of, is better than a big run in a challenger, financially and rankings wise. Winning one match in an ATP event through qualifying is equivalent to making the SF in a challenger. And the qualifying draws are essentially the same challenger players, and with less depth. Pete is 31. Playing challengers week in, week out, for little money, isn't really an attractive option for him especially since he's been at the top level, just last year. So, it's wise for someone in his position to take his chances and see what happens.

I think he has the potential for a great week this week upcoming, but first things first, he has to qualify.

Re: The "Peter Luczak" Cheering Thread!

Casablanca I get, because of the weaker field and especially weak q-field. But Barcelona and MC are just too high for him atm I think. They are a lot of quality clay courters in those q-draws. And then I think he'd be better off playing some challengers and wins some matches. I guess he will enjoy tennis more when he is winning and getting deep into challengers, than getting eliminated in qualifying draws.
So far this year he tried to qualify for ATP events 5 times, and didn't qualify once. Played first challenger of the year, immediately got to the final. That says enough.

Re: The "Peter Luczak" Cheering Thread!

Geez, just let him play where he wants to play.. he's trying to enjoy what is looking like his last year on tour, and we've got people in here whinging about everything.

Good luck against Peya mate..

Pete lost to Peya 6-7(7) 6-0 2-6. Obviously very disappointing and a pretty big missed opportunity, but that happens. Hopefully he makes up for it in future weeks.

Tough luck. Thought he would have ran away with it after winning the second set 6-0.

Re: The "Peter Luczak" Cheering Thread!

Pete has had problems with Peya before, the last season is tough for him. Just has to keep on fighting away.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

The worst thing about MTF is that people are in the ass of their favourite players all the time. Why can't people here understand that you can be a fan but at they same time critical on the guy?!

It's perfectly fine with me if he plays all the qualis, or doesn't even play at all. It's his decision, but I don't support it. I think it's not good to stroll through these quali events all the time, playing matches on Sunday mornings without any crowd in the stands. And lose a lot, because these quali draws are often quite tough.

So that's my opinion and that's what a forum is all about. These fan forums as well. What's the use in just mindlessly following and agreeing with everything a player does?

Re: The "Peter Luczak" Cheering Thread!

Information, support and debate is what the forum is about, and you certainly generated the debate Ad Wim. Great to hear evertone's opinion. Me, I'd support Looch even if he was playing a $10k Futures, he is such a champion.

Winnable match for young Pete.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Good result against the Gremlin winning 7-5 6-1 coming back from *3-5 down in 1st set.
