Re: Brian Baker

Good effort against Simon . Now go get some rest.

Hopefully, Brian can hire a physio/coach soon because I hate to see him travel by himself .

Baker mulls Wimbledon wild card chances

Quote:
American Brian Baker, whose comeback from five surgeries has been the talk of tennis world, says that he would consider taking a Wimbledon wild card. After winning the USTA Roland Garros wild card, Baker went through qualifying at Nice and reached the final. He won his first-round match at Roland Garros before losing in five sets to Gilles Simon.

"Playing main draw Wimbledon would be an awesome thing," said Baker, who is projected to be ranked around No. 110 when the next rankings are released. "I haven't even sat down with anybody to inquire about what my chances of getting a wild card would be, or how I'd go about that. I think you take wild cards when you're playing well and you know that you can win some matches and go deep in tournaments. I don't think you take wild cards just to take them because they're throwing it at you, just to take some money first round, and just play. I have had some of my best results this year when I've had to go through qualies. I don't think it's the end of the world to have to play qualies. If you're playing well, I think you take the wild cards and see what you can do." - Baker mulls Wimbledon wild card chances
It would be awesome if Brian can get a wc @ Wimbly.

What a ride for Brian Baker

Quote:
PARIS -- Nine years ago, Brian Baker finished as the world's No. 7-ranked junior, one spot behind Andy Murray and ahead of, among others, Richard Gasquet, Tomas Berdych and a spare 16-year-old Serb named Novak Djokovic, who came in at No. 118.

"Actually, he was one of the best, if not I think the best, junior in the world," Djokovic said Wednesday. "He won the Orange Bowl when I played, I remember. He's a very, very talented player. He always had a very smart game, a variety of shots."

These days, of course, Djokovic finds himself the No. 1 professional player in the world. Was Baker better than Djokovic was back in the day?

"Well, he was older and he was better at that time, yes," Djokovic said, smiling. "I have actually seen him yesterday after a very long time. I was pleasantly surprised with his comeback. It's great to see him back."

Indeed it is or, rather, was. And although Baker's wildly improbable adventure through France has ended, charting the progress of this 27-year-old from Nashville over the rest of his career should be fun.

Playing his 10th match in 12 days, Baker lost to world No. 12 Gilles Simon -- a Frenchman playing in the biggest stadium at the French Open -- by a score of 6-4, 6-1, 6-7 (4), 1-6, 6-0. In retrospect, that's a tough ask of a guy who a year ago was playing for his father's and uncle's Middle Tennessee Tennis League.
