Re: ◄ Grass season 2012 ►onwards and upwards!!!

He got past by Almagro in the ranking today, dropped to 13th next week. Which means, he needs to win at least 2 matches in Queens if he wants to get enough bonus pts to get seeded 12th in Wimby. So a big Allez. Hopefully, he doesn't run in to problem like he did last year. Can't wait for the draw to come out, just 5 more days .

Mind though Wimby do their own seedings partly based on results on grass - or have you already taken that into account?

I have, that's why I said bonus points. If he only wins 2 matches and get 45 pts, that's not enough to make any change in his ranking pts since his lowest 250 is 90 pts and winning 2 matches only gives him 45 pts. But it also gives him additional 45 bonus pts and that's the pts that will push him up in the seedings. These of course assumes that Almagro doesn't beat Rafa the next match (almost a certainty though). And Almagro didn't sign up for any grass tournament next week so he has no chance of adding any bonus pts.

I assume my calculation is correct, no guarantee though .

Allez Gilles, he'll need to serve well during the grass season to reach his potential. I hope he puts the disappointment of the FO behind him.

Re: ◄ Grass season 2012 ►onwards and upwards!!!

His half of the single draw:

1 Murray v BYE
Garcia-Lopez v Mahut
Q v Dimitrov
wc Broady v 14 Muller

9 Anderson v wc Ward
Cipolla v Stakhovsky
Ramirez Hidalgo v Darcis
BYE v 5 Lopez

4 Simon v BYE
Bolelli v Gulbis
Ungur v Malisse
Klizan v 13 Bogomolov Jr.

10 Nalbandian v Pospisil
Jaziri v L.Mayer
Roger-Vasselin v Q
BYE v 7 Roddick

It's not bad, I think. Hope he can win a couple of matches at least.

His quarter of the double draw:

6 Fleming/Hutchins v BYE
Roger-Vasselin/Simon v Darcis/Rochus
Elgin/Istomin v Bogomolov Jr./Cerretani
BYE v 2 Bryan/Bryan

Well, get some practice for double...

Allez Gilles, hope he has a good warmup tournament to get ready for Wimby.

Re: ◄ Grass season 2012 ►onwards and upwards!!!

All doubles been removed from Tue's OOP, they are scrambling to get all the Singles done, understandably. But there's 2 courts that are done with Singles now including Center Court, it's only 7pm right now, do they have lights in Queen's? Oh well. Hopefully the weather cooperates tomorrow, and the day after...
