Anderson will beat Young..book it

Normally, I might agree with you, but Anderson's got to be tired after playing 13 matches last week (2QS, 5S, 2QD, 4D) and then driving from New Orleans to Lubbock in a car w/o air conditioning (according to one poster).

If he has a good showing in this tournament with such a short turnaround, I will be very impressed.

09-18-2007, 02:58 AM
OK, didn't notice Polansky in Tuesday's OOP, but there was one LL spot and it looks like Polansky (as highest ranked player in the last round of qualifying) lost to Peralta and got the LL spot.

take sarstrand over rehnquist. sucks these best friends have to play each other. the courts are playing fast, which favors marcus. his shoulder is finally 100% healthy and says he's playing well. bjorn did take his first win over marcus this summer, but it was on slow clay. marcus in straights this time.

I wonder what Szumanski has with Lubbock, he only ever shows up in Poland and in Lubbock (WC last three years!). He tried some Polish futures this summer without success, but doesn't play a lot. Maybe he plays college tennis in the US (just guessing)?

TankingTheSet
09-19-2007, 03:49 AM
The fact that Anderson lost doesn't surprise me (tired from last week). However I expected Warburg to lose for similar reasons (his defeat in the final seemed to suggest that) but he seems to have recovered.
