I'm pretty sure there are only two qualie rounds in IW, so 2 wins gets you in the MD.

Well since Gasquet is a dead horse, Tsonga is an exciting French player to follow and root for as long as he stays healthy and does it well.

I think you forgot that scoobs is unranked All the unranked players are put in the list in their commitment order so there is an advantage to committing early.

What you say about the points for winning two matches may be true (I haven't checked) but what if scoobs wins just one match? He'll get some points in Rabat but he wouldn't get any in IW So I think he made the correct choice.

WG, good luck for the final

Re: "The Case of Missing Balls" Chat Thread

I think it was a correct decision for scoobsy to play Rabat, he probably would've been an alternate for IW.

WG, I'm firing off your PM as we speak

I did forget that It is taking him a long time to get a ranking. Hurry up scoobs.

If he gets into the main draw he'll need to win one match to get points. If it is qualies he'll need 2 matches. Last year I was on the qualie list for the Challenger during IW. That's when Adam made me w/d and be a LE into IW qualies.

Re: "The Case of Missing Balls" Chat Thread

I'm looking at the Bergamo thread and I probably won't even get into the main draw But I won't change to Cherbourg so do you want to play doubles together again?

Re: "The Case of Missing Balls" Chat Thread

Hey Betty and Snoo

Get well soon Betty Yes, everyone who doesn't play Davis Cup wants to play the Bergamo challenger and it's a lot of people I never imagined that I'd have problems getting into a challenger with a ranking of 250 And today I lost the Belgrade final so it's been bad news in TT all around.

On the plus side, my super advanced TT management Excel should be ready for first tests today I'm hoping Jess will help me, she's managing a tournament right now
