Wow great list provisionally. Chalk and cheese in comparison to last year, when Robert Smeets (then ranked at about 150) was the top seed. How things can change in a year. Strange that Rehmquist isn't down to defend his title, especially as his form has stagnated recently, a return to preferable courts would surely do him good.

its a GB event all websites are embarrassing.

big improvement in the field tho/ i wonder if players are just loving the grass this year, or saw it was weak last year so entered?

or possibly there were other better events to play this time last year?

Charrion was playing at a much higher level than his ranking suggests and Michel was looking quite bemused with his opponents play in the later stages of the match. Fortunately his serve kept him in the match and it looked certain to go to a final set tie break before the rain delay. Igor was playing well against Ruben and could possibly have won the match without the retirement. Ruben did manage to play 2 more games at the end of the second set (so I don't think the injury is too serious) but he obviously didn't want to risk playing another set.

Firstly, I'm going to Manchester again tomorrow and will be sending updates to a forum member on britishtennis.net. So if you want up-to-date scores go to this thread: http://britishtennis.a c t i v e b o a r d/index.spark?forumID=61841&p=3&topicID=29140878&page=9 (Remove Spaces)

Here are a few photos that I took on Monday (the quality isn't fantastic, although I blame the equipment!):

Mahut/Koning was the last match on centre court. Beck finished at 1730pm (CET) and there was a doubles match still to be played before Mahut/Koning. Therefore the match is probably still in progress.

any updates on Amritraj match???

I live around 15 miles north of Manchester and it has been raining steadily here for the past few hours, so I'd be very surprised if there has been any more play this afternoon. The weather forecast for this evening and tomorrow is heavy rain, so there is a chance that we may get no more play until Saturday. :(

Any news on Bogdanovic vs Peya?

Just spoke to tournament press office and Bogo vs Peya match was suspended at 1130hrs with Peya leading 5-4. This match will now be finished indoors, starting in 10 minutes.

One other doubles match has been played indoors and has just finished (I don't know the score). Lots of rain around so little chance of any play outdoors at the moment.

They only said that the Bogo vs Peya match would be played indoors but the radar forecast shows rain for the next 3 to 4 hours, so they may try to play more matches indoors. :shrug:

From the LTA twitter:

# Boggo has been forced to withdraw from his semi-final in Manchester after the first set 14 minutes ago

So the final will be between Rochus and Sijsling.
