The end of the line : the european indoor season.

OK, nevermind Shanghai. It's more or less what Madrid was last year to him.

Right now, he is playing in :

- Lyon 250 (no points to take there for the race)

- Valence 500 (full score to take)

-Bercy 1000 (the same)

He said he wasn't skipping Lyon at Tokyo, now, he very much could.

Try to be positive, guys. This year was disappointing, he said it himself. Everything is good to take right now.

Re: The end of the line : the european indoor season.

I'm happy and positive; even if it has been a "disappointing year" Jo should still end it at least in the top 10 or so which isn't half bad =p

A couple of tournaments left, and he's got some good points still to pick up. A strong end to the year would be nice, even if he doesn't make the YEC it gives him a nice platform for next year.

Re: The end of the line : the european indoor season.

Good Luck Jo! It's disappointing in the sense he has not won any majors. But considering he still has not played a 5-setter, top-10 is a good place to be. Winning Tokyo was a boost. Also his body is holding up, everyone else is injured left and right. Of course last year he probably entered this part of the tour with a lot more energy. Is anybody going to see him play in Lyon or Paris?

Re: The end of the line : the european indoor season.

Looks like Lopez might be about to toss Jo something of a lifeline in the YEC race

Re: The end of the line : the european indoor season.

Jo won his first round match against Kevin Kim in Lyon 76 76. It was tighter than I would have liked. According to Voo de Mar in GM, Jo has improved his tiebreak record to 32-16 this season. He comes right after Roddick's 33-12.

Re: The end of the line : the european indoor season.

Thanks for keeping this place alive Bashak.

I won't be there for most of this week, so I come back for Valencia.

Allez Jo in Lyon !
