1. I thought he was asking about a new entry. I didn't check that he was already in.
2. The first round of the Futures tournament may have included qualy matches, but the manager's computer crashed, so there was a gap between the end of qualifying and the start of the main draw.
3. I haven't looked at the draw here because I'm not playing here, but I am quite happy researching unknown players. I remember there were a lot of 15 year olds playing in Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan.
Sorry, I wasn't really referring to #1, that was fine.
In response to #3. Even the players in the first round of a GB future have information around about them. They are good players, they have played tennis before, most of them have attempted to qualify before and so on. So by the time you get to the last round, they not only have 3 matches from that tournament but other matches from before, they are generally ranked players.
The players here are 40 year olds that have no information, not on the ITF site, they have never played ANY qualifying matches before, not on the Great Britain National Rankings site. There is nothing. There is a HUGE difference between a futures qualifying draw in GB or USA and these eight players.
