Unfortunately for you, US Challengers always have a pretty similar, stable field. There are some guys that mostly tour on the US Challenger Tour. I can see Kretschmer and Scherrer withdrawing from the ALT list, but, other than injuries and extremely good Wimbledon results, I don't anticipate many withdrawals here.

TOo bad, but if he can qualify on clay(like this week) then on hardcourts(his best surface) it should be easy.

who is polansky and why does he have so many fans on this website??

anyway, i was there at the tournament today. saw warburg sela, real topsy turvy 1st set where sela saved like 3 set pts, then had 1 of his own before losing. warburg was just the bigger guy, and his serve won him the match.

francis and polansky, the play was tight but i only watched part of it. Lots of long rallies, polansky tried to dictate with his forehand but francis took the pace off the ball with his slice backhands.

bogomolov and miranda was the most contested match, these 2 totally play the same game. heavy forehands, consistent backhands, serve not huge weapons. both run like the wind. Bogomolov served for both the first and second set, but got broken both times!!! and bog was done for in the 3rd set, cuz he was playing back behind the baseline,and miranda was dictating (which wasn't the case throughout the match). but then Bog hit a 2nd serve to ad side, to his bh, miranda went for it a weird way and then called the trainer. After that, bog held serve, broke, and miranda RET. real shame. great match tho. a lot of throwing rackets, bog shouting at miranda's peruvian supporters, haha.

Peter is one of Canada's hopes for the future and has just turned pro this year after playing very well in juniors. He was part of the Davis Cup team for Canada last year and fell out of a 3 storey hotel because of sleepwalking and needed over 400 stitches. After that, he made the finals of the junior US Open beating Klizan and Young along the way. This year he's already won 4 futures tournaments.

Um...Alex wasn't yelling at Miranda's supporters. He was mad at himself because the serve wasn't working. And there wasn't "a lot" of racket throwing. Miranda didn't exactly have the 3rd set in his hands even with the 2 breaks even before the cramps. I almost think that we saw two different matches.

Alex won and that's all that matters...

take a chill pill Tennis.

Alex told them to shut up at one point in the first set, after he was broken while serving. And he was down two breaks, 3-0. I had no vested interest, never even seen either player before today. So just reporting what I "thought" i saw.

Sorry, but when it comes to the accuracy of a report on Alex's match, and one that I was there for, I won't take a "chill pill."

And I said that he was down 2 breaks. To be more accurate, it was Deuce,0-3, on Alex's serve when Miranda cramped. But Alex would've came back and won the match regardless of whether Miranda cramped or not

Top five according to the ATP rankings at least. There are others who could probably compete with those guys. Young, for example, lost to Petru-Alexandru Luncanu in the Orange Bowl semis in December.

Young, by the way, is going to play the Wimbledon Junior Championships in July. I don't think it's a given that he'll win, though I would make him the favorite.

Yes, I meant according to the ATP rankings. They certainly aren't a perfect reflection of the current situation given that at that age, some guys are more active than others. Obviously in the larger picture you'd have to include Martin Klizan, etc.

That said, it will be interesting to see how this entire generation works out. Donald Young is the top 1989 rankings wise at the moment, ranked around #335. When Nadal was his age (two months shy of his 18th birthday in April 2004), Nadal was ranked #35. Gasquet had already broken into the top 100 at that age. On the other hand, Monfils (another 1986 player) was down at #452. 1986 is kind of a strange year with one very dominant player (Nadal), two players who easily have top 10 potential (Monfils and Gasquet) and then practically nobody. The next best tennis player born in 1986 outside of that trio is probably Marcel Granollers-Pujol. But, it's unreasonable to expect each year to produce a Nadal-type player. Among the 1987s, Djokovic was #160 and Murray was #419 when they were two months younger than 18. Hell, Querrey was #1087 although I think he only played sporadically. JMDP was #133.

I haven't been scrutinizing tennis player development to really understand what is unusual and what isn't, but I think it's interesting food for thought.

I did a similar comparison of American players a while back. Roddick, when he was two months shy of his 18th birthday, was ranked #645, having only played several pro tournaments (three being ATP events). Then he started playing consistently and six months later was ranked #156. He cracked the top 100 at 18 years and 8 months. Blake didn't compete professionally at that age. He started playing consistently after he turned 19 and increased his ranking from #682 to #220 in a year's time. Mardy Fish started playing pros at 18 years and 2 months and increased his ranking to #252 in a year's time. Ginepri started playing consistently at 18 years and 5 months and reached #145 a year later.

Wow nishikori's pretty impressive. I thought sweeting would be able to overpower him, and he almost did. 15-13 tb is amazing. So now, it'd be between young and Nishi, with young probably taking it b/c of his lefty-ness

Nishi's game is how do i say, zen like. Everything is VERY FLUID, but no overpowering weapons. He moves around the court so easily and amazingly. He makes unbelievable gets and gets it back and makes his opponent hit uncomfortable ones. (for examples, a running slice desparation fh that lands really short and angled crosscourt). Also love his backhand. He hits it so easily and comes up with such awesome angles. Would def say he should try to improve his serve, which is attackable and not a weapon.

If he wins the title Kei Niskikori is in good company of players winning their first Challenger title at a young age, here are some stats I looked up:

Gasquet 16 years 0 months (challenger title)
Nadal 16 years 9 months (challenger title)
Hewitt 16 years 10 months (ATP title)
Del Potro 17 years 1 month (challenger title)
Djokovic 17 years 4 months (challenger title)
Nishikori 17 years 5 months (challenger title)
Roddick 18 years 1 month (challenger title)

This may not be most competitive challenger, but still a nice stat. Nadal was the most impressive youngster with a consistent futures/challenger level from the age of 15, which of course bore fruit not long after.

I thought DOn would be able to frustrate Bog with his touch, his lefty serve and his speed, but I forgot that Alex Bog is built like a tank and can ran just as much as Don and hits the ball bigger on his forehand. Good work.

Now let's see the results tomorrow. Nishi has a similar game to Don but his forehand seems to have a little more loop but a backhand with more placement and power than Youngs. Good job to both

Don't forget that Kei had to qualify for the challenger tournament and so had to play 3 extra matches. All the ones you mentionned were already higher ranked and so did not have to qualify to play at the challenger. SO if Nei still loses today to an experienced player that is Alex he still has a lot of potential and could be a top player down the road.
