Re: Christian Harrison

Yes, but he's been injured for like two years.

He was going to play in Kalamazoo this month but withdrew. This is him with Ryan earlier this year.

Re: Christian Harrison

Thanks Kworb; I hadn't seen that before.
But yeah, he missed close to a year and half, which is incredibly tough for a player of his age. Those are some of the most important developmental years.
And it's too bad he withdrew from Kalamazoo, I hope it's not an injury. I live pretty close to there and have gone to the tournament before, was thinking of going for half a day to watch Christian play.

Re: Christian Harrison

Unfortunate for him. He recently got crushed by Lacroix. I wonder if he can ever reach his true potential now.

Re: Christian Harrison

Though Christian lost in qualifying for the last two futures, I had a feeling he was starting to play better, based on the fact that he beat some very solid players, like Chris Kearney. Well today he validated my feeling at least a little bit.
He beat Rudolf Siwy 6-2 5-7 6-3. Siwy might be in bad form, but he is a decent player that made a futures final pretty recently and won by retirement over Rajeev Ram earlier this year. He also played Donald Young in a close match in the next round of that tournament(Indian Wells Qualifying). So I would say a pretty positive result for Christian. Next up is either his good friend and 7 seed Mike Venus or his fellow American youngster Dennis Novikov. BTW, he is also playing doubles with Venus and they won their first round.

Re: Christian Harrison

He beat Venus and is into the QF! Good win.

Re: Christian Harrison

Christian lost 6-0 6-1 to Denis Kudla.
Tough one, but pretty expected. Denis is a very good young player and I'm not expecting too much consistency from Christan at this point.
I'm more still shocked about the Venus result, he must be in very bad form.

Re: Christian Harrison

They pulled out of doubles so maybe Venus was injured. Tough loss today, but at least he got two ranking points.

Either that or Venus was doing the common lose then withdraw from doubles and leave the tournament
But either way, it was a good tournament, two quality wins.

Re: Christian Harrison

Won four matches easily to qualify for a $10K. But he plays Kubler in R1, a promising junior who just won two consecutive $10Ks.
