Pre Qualifying?

I saw something about pre qualifying mentioned on the website. I think I might be able to hold my own against qualifiers, is the pre qualifying open to everyone or how does this work?

Re: Pre Qualifying?

If its anything like the IW pre-qualie, it will be a small group of players just outside the cut-off, invited to participate in a mini-playoff the day before regular qualies start.

But do you really think you could beat the #300 player on the ATP rankings?

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: Pre Qualifying?

I've seen the qualifiers play and think I'd have maybe a 10% chance, depending on which one I played.

Re: Pre Qualifying?

Rajeev Ram? John Paul Fruttero? Todd Widom?

Well, if you're that good, play a few Open tournaments, get some USTA national ranking points and try to sign in the for the qualifying rounds at one of the Futures tournaments in Florida. Pretty decent bragging rights around your club if you beat a touring pro, in an official tournament, regardless of his ranking.
