Re: Brian Baker

Its going to be a tough first round but winnable. Maybe Istomin will be a little tired .

Munich - 2nd place
Halle - 4th place
's-Hertogenbosch - 4th place
GSTAAD - WINNER

Re: Brian Baker

Got a WC but I don't think that's good time for him

GO Roger Federer, Nick Kyrgios, Borna Coric, Vasek Pospisil, Thomaz Bellucci, Kei Nishikori, , Milos Raonic, Jerzy Janowicz, Grigor Dimitrov, Dennis Novikov and Bernard Tomic

Thiem will be top three by Dec 2016
Borna Coric will be No 1 by Dec 2017
Nick Kyrgios will be No 1 by Jan 2018

What's with the WCs? I thought he had a protected ranking which allowed him to enter several tournaments at his pre-injury ranking?

Re: Brian Baker

Lost 63 62, didn't really see the match (saw the stats at the end though, not very pretty).

No disrespect to Dimitrov but he didn't have to do much more than keep the ball in play. Just a bad match.

There's only a limited number, I think. He may not want to use it.

Re: Brian Baker

MELZER, Jurgen AUT [29] - DONSKOY, Evgeny RUS
SIJSLING, Igor NED - Qualifier (Q)
HEWITT, Lleyton AUS - BAKER, Brian USA (W)
GARCIA-LOPEZ, Guillermo ESP - DEL POTRO, Juan Martin ARG [6]

I like both players, but Brian really needs the points.
