Nice field, i look froward to this event; some american clay mugs, nice to see Delic back, Nishikori also here, would be nice to see him play; old friend Vanek back in action despite last years actions, no Franco Ferreiro....

WC for Veic and Dodig for sure, the other ones i do not know....

I guess the MD should be out this afternoon.
He is in RG main draw entry list (and he commited to Kitzbuhel too i think). :p
And this week he also played a doubles match in Belgrade.

BTW, there is going to be a live stream for this Challenger.
And is anyone out there going to attend some matches? :)

Of course, it is! I'm already worshipping it as on paper it's a relatively small Challenger on the same week as other bigger events, but still they provide us with a nice website, scores and video :worship:

So can I bug someone begging to take pictures of Frenchies and maybe share some inside stories? :) :o It'd be highly appreciated!

He acted like he was some kind of super star out there, like a prima donna, if he was a great player someon could understand it, but he is pure shit; played against a clay nobody like Somdev DevVarman, who just runs all the time and retrieves balls, and he went for every single shot, hitting UE after UE, you can't play anymore stupid then he did, started to shout at everybody, disgusting behaviour; Mayer is IMO a very limited player....
