I don't know if that's all the entries, but it's not looking hopeful...
I read 28th June for the entry list for Olympics. The list you just posted is the official one,published today, 2 days earlier than I had been led to believe it would be.

The only way Ernests can get in now is an alternate,if a direct entry drops out.I checked,the alts list is yet to be published. It's a shame this is the only way for him to get in now.

If he doesn't get into Olympics,he can make plans to return to hardcourts in build up to U.S.Open.

Re: Dust your shoulders off! Grass season 2012 Thread

Yeah, I guess it makes sense he didn't enter LA in hopes of getting wildcard, now he can only hope for some withdrawals if anything.
It's just too bad we don't get to see him defend his titles neither in Delray Beach last year or LA this year.
I hope he wins something this year to keep his one title a year run

Shame they didn't give him wild card
how many players must withdraw?
maybe he will get wild card for LA if he will not play at Olympics

The alternates list for Olympics is not out yet, so we don´t know where he´s at there.

Re: Dust your shoulders off! Grass season 2012 Thread

Ernests is 2nd on court 17 tomorrow. there is a stream but it is a small court,almost no seats for public, no hawk eye and lots of noise from around. So let's hope he concentrates and performs the way he should.

His wonderful match vs Berdych was not on TV in Canada; internet was a bliss but I wanted so much to record it being on centre court against no:6...I would have expected a TV display. In Canada, they rely on ESPN USA so instead they showed Isner, Williams, etc... except his 3 tie breaks. What a shame...

Really hoping to find it on the web at some point... I wonder if he will ever produce a match like this in the near futur.

I don't know if this will help but they still have the match posted on ESPN3 under 'replay'. Hope it works!

Re: Dust your shoulders off! Grass season 2012 Thread

@EternalxJourney Thank you. But I live in Montreal and there is no way I can access ESPN3 which is frustrating most of the time. Same for tennis channel, not accessible in Canada. Hope someone will tape it though.

Re: Dust your shoulders off! Grass season 2012 Thread

For anyone in the U.S. who has DirecTV, the match will be on channel 708
God, they switched to Melzer-Wawrinka, now they have Jeff f'in Tarango babbling about Barry f'in McKay

ESPN would rather show Michael Russell v Julien Benneteau.
