Re: Zach Fleishman looks to defend his title (link)

This is an exhibition tournament right?

(get ready, your thread will be moved to that forum eventually)

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.

Okay, so it's a prize money event, not ATP sanctioned. Got it.

"Top players"

Zack Fleishman
Joel Kielbowicz
Robert Steckley
Michael Rubin
Andreas Siljestrom

"Zach has some tough competition"

"its not an exhibition" What the hell is it then?

The prize pool is comparable to a lowest-grade futures tournament.

Nothing wrong with the tournament, just admit it's a MM exhibition tournament.


TT Singles 2012: W: Winston-Salem SF: Honolulu CH, Rotterdam, Memphis, 's-Hertogenbosch, Wimbledon, Beijing, Vienna QF: Barcelona, Nice, Bastad, Petange CH, Bangkok R16: Monte Carlo, Madrid

Re: Zach Fleishman looks to defend his title (link)

It's a normal prize money tournament. There are tons of them each week all over the world, so this here is really nothing special.

Re: Zach Fleishman looks to defend his title (link)

They are world class players going to a normal club (seemingly)

I would love to see that sort of stuff down here.

Our top level stuff is 10 times lower

Re: Zach Fleishman looks to defend his title (link)

Siljeström won the NCAA Doubles Championship this summer. So he is in the same college range like Bryan/Bryan. I only say "college", but u see...he is not that bad!

Allways Good luck to:

Joachim Johansson * Andreas Vinciguerra* Jonas Björkman* ToJo* Robin Söderling* Oliver Rochus* Christope Rochus* Jarkko Nieminen* Fernando Gonzalez* Feliciano Lopez*Igor Andreev*Catalin Gard*Kristof Vliegen*Kristian Pless*Kenneth Carlsen*Juan Ignacio Chela*Steve Darcis*Kevin Anderson*Henri Kontinen*Henri Laaksonen*Daniel Berta*Rik de Voest*Niels Desein*Fernando Verdasco*Arthur de Greef*'David Goffin*Yannik Reuter*Erling Tveit*Devin Britton*Micke Kontinen*Christian Lindell*Erling Tveit*Robbye Poole*Henri Laaksonen*

Re: Zach Fleishman looks to defend his title (link)

Rubin Takes 2007 Challenge Crown
Second seeded Michael Rubin fought off the powerful serve of Sweden's 6'10" Andreas Siljestrom to capture the 2007 Checker Sedan Pro Tennis Challenge at Grosse Pointe's Lochmoor Club, 6-3, 5-7, 6-1. Rubin took the first set 6-3, but Siljestrom came roaring back with a powerful second stanza serving performance. Yet Rubin's equally impressive service return shackled Siljestrom, and the Ohio native breezed through the final set, 6-1 to capture the title and $4,000 top prize


Great money for it or? 4000 $? That is sometimes more than a 1st round in a little ATP Tournament!!! Or more than a challenger win!!!

Allways Good luck to:

Joachim Johansson * Andreas Vinciguerra* Jonas Björkman* ToJo* Robin Söderling* Oliver Rochus* Christope Rochus* Jarkko Nieminen* Fernando Gonzalez* Feliciano Lopez*Igor Andreev*Catalin Gard*Kristof Vliegen*Kristian Pless*Kenneth Carlsen*Juan Ignacio Chela*Steve Darcis*Kevin Anderson*Henri Kontinen*Henri Laaksonen*Daniel Berta*Rik de Voest*Niels Desein*Fernando Verdasco*Arthur de Greef*'David Goffin*Yannik Reuter*Erling Tveit*Devin Britton*Micke Kontinen*Christian Lindell*Erling Tveit*Robbye Poole*Henri Laaksonen*

Some older players only play prize money tournaments and leagues, because they can earn money that way, e.g. Thomas Schiessling.
