The Boodles Challenge

There will be 11 players, so what will be the system of play?

Re: The Boodles Challenge

Can't be that hard to work out.

5 players have Byes.

The other 6 play off and you get 3 winners, then goes on as a normal event.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

There is a Boodles tournament, but not all players playing in the event will be playing in the tournament section of it. Some of them will be there to just play one exhibition match. Others will be there to play the tournament, which could mean one, two, or three matches.

Re: The Boodles Challenge

It's a bit like the Kooyong Classic and a good warm-up on grass pre-Wimbledon.
8 players in standard knock-out - quarters, semis, final. The losing players then play each other so the guys involved are guaranteed 3 matches on grass.

The other players listed are usually involved in Exhibition matches. There are also doubles matches - hence the Bryans are in and there may be one more dubs team too. Otherwise the B's could play a team made up by 2 of the singles guys.

It runs Tuesday 17th to Saturday 21st June only with matches starting at 2pm. It's held at Stoke Park Club which houses a very good golf course.

Re: The Boodles Challenge

The official website says the OOP should be available starting from June 16, but can't find anything so far anyway It should start today, right?

Play starts 2.15pm

Andy Murray (GBR) vs Janko Tipsarevic (SRB)

followed by
Robby Ginepri (USA) vs David Nalbandian (ARG)

followed by

I felt so bad. I didn’t break a racquet for like one month. They are putting so much effort to make the racquets and an idiot like me goes and breaks them

Re: The Boodles Challenge

Thanks for the OOP, Zahirah. It's a pity it seems to be unavailable anywhere on the web.

Lots of my guys are playing here so I'm tempted to go but it's a bit of a nuisance to get to.

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?
