Re: Jesse Levine

No wild card for Ginepri. The winner of a four player round robin competition will receive the wild card. The four players: Isner, Levine, Odesnik, and Kuznetsov. It will be held Dec. 18-20.

It still seems likely to me that Inser will get in directly. He only needs two players to withdraw. If Isner wins the competition and then gets in directly, I guess the second place finisher will get the wild card.

Re: Jesse Levine

Nice to see him doing so well, he seems like a good kid. He and Berankis (Fed's other hitting partner during the Dubai trip) have been tearing up a storm lately. Levine's been winning challengers left and right while Berankis did a late season surge to get the #1 junior ranking. That must make Papa Fed feel proud.

It's a shame that he's so short though, he's only 5'8! I'd hate to see him put at a disadvantage because of his height.

Trolling is defined by Herring as baiting and luring others into pointless and time-consuming discussions.

4 criteria of trolls:

1. Appearance of outward sincerity.
2. Posts designed to incite anger or "flames"
3. Posts designed to waste everybody's time with useless argument
4. Desperate desire for attention, any attention at all

Recognize them, don't engage and put 'em on your ignore list where they belong. Feed a troll and you're just encouraging their attention-seeking.

Re: Jesse Levine

Jesse won the AO wildcard playoff, defeating Odesnik and Kuznetsov in his matches.

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: Jesse Levine

Apparently it was just a 3-player round robin. Isner didn't participate. Here's the link:

http://www.sun-sentinel.com/sports/t...,7617172.story

The Levine-Odesnik score was 6-4, 6-0. It doesn't sound like Levine has cooled off a bit. He could be a dangerous early round opponent for someone.

The article says that he's going to try to qualify for Adelaide and Sydney.

Re: Jesse Levine

Interesting, because the USTA site says it was 4 players, including Isner
http://www.usta.com/news/fullstory.sps?inewsid=514792

But then they only give the scores for 2 matches??? what a half-assed event

The reporting is half-assed anyway.

Re: Jesse Levine

Indeed and everything points to it being thrown together very last minute. I mean I think the playoff is a great idea but if no one even knows how many players were even playing...... yikes

Regardless, good for Jesse!

Re: Jesse Levine

Jesse only mentioned 3 in his message, he never mentioned Isner.

Glad to hear that he is going to make a full trip to Aus, it will be good for him.

Re: Jesse Levine

Filip Prpic d. Levine 6-2, 2-6, 6-4 in the first round of qualifying in Adelaide. That's pretty surprising the way he's been playing.

Re: Jesse Levine

pity
he had all chances until 4:4 in the 1st set, then he began to struggle

but at least a better result than last week
some more improvement during this week and Melbourne can come, hopefully no seeded player in round 1

Re: Jesse Levine

Levine replaces Ancic as a lucky loser and plays Ferrero in the first round. Good luck to him!!!
