I just hope Baker makes it. Otherwise the Wimbledon organisers are silly for electing to give WCs to some fodder like Jamie Baker et al. :facepalm:.

My predictions:
Zopp (I do not think he's qualifying, but I'm picking him b/c he's the safe pick. I think he goes down R2.)
Hernych
Gil
Sugita (I expect either he or Alves to qualify. I want to pick Russell but can't ignore his grass record)
Levine
Smyczek (most consistent player in section)
Farah
Ram
Bolelli (Simone has an easy draw but tricky players who can cause him problems)
Bubka
Baker (winner between he and Gremelmayr qualifies, IMO)
Clement (can't see anyone in the section beating him if he's motivated)
Brugues-Davi (I don't think Bemelmans will qualify and Brugues has been playing better of late)
Reynolds (winner between he and Chovjka qualifies)
Kudla (going safe, but this section is totally unpredictable for me)
Berankis

Hope Baker and Zhang make it.

Baker got into a great section, but I think Gremelmayr and Grigelis will cause him problems. I don't think Brian's game adapts well to grass. Luckily he's in a section with weak servers so his return should come in handy.

Does anyone know what happened to Luke Saville? Last year's junior champ was down for a qualifying wild card but is not in the draw (no, he hasn't been promoted to a main draw wild card).

I thought all Wimbledon junior champions get a MD WC for next year. I think it's sort of a tradition. I may be wrong but the guy may just be injured :shrug:.

Winning boys' Wimbledon pretty much guarantees you at least a qualifying wild card, and if you're ranked high enough/ are promising enough, you get a main draw wild card. Saville was not going well enough on the men's tour to be granted a main draw wild card. Same thing happened to Márton Fucsovics who won boys' Wimbledon in 2010.

(Sorry Filo V. for going off topic.)

Benjamin Mitchell
Jan Hernych
Marsel Ilhan
Yuichi Sugita (though much prefer Russell)
Jesse Levine
Tim Smyczek
Javier Marte
Marco Chiudinelli (though crossing fingers for Dreddy)
Simone Bolelli (sucker's pick, I know)
Yannick Mertens
Brian Baker
Daniel Gimeno-Traver
Farrukh Dustov (probably the biggest crapshoot - if there'd been a British WC here, might have picked it)
Nikola Ciric
Denis Kudla
Andrey Kuznetsov (though I like Berankis if he wins their R1 match)

I SWEAR I just saw him in the order of play for tomorrow's qualifying, but when I went back to look it up, he wasn't there.

That's not even all that weak a section :lol:

wrt to Saville, I heard he was unavailable.

I just hope Baker makes it. Otherwise the Wimbledon organisers are silly for electing to give WCs to some fodder like Jamie Baker et al. :facepalm:.

The guys who got a wildcard instead were either British, or had won a Challenger on grass (Zemlja)

I would expect experienced grascourt players like Clement and Simone Bolelli to qualify. I really hope Clement makes it into the MD as this will be his last Wimbledon and I hope either Serra or Zverev make it through their section.

Justifying my picks....

1. Zopp (most solid player in this section, others aren't so great)
2. Brands (seems the best on grass, wouldn't surprise me if Navarro or Hernych beat him)
3. Rufin (the bottom half of this section is a bit of a nightmare to pick. Feel Rufin's the best player here)
4. Russell (don't ask me why, however this quarter's pretty dodgy)
5. Levine (strong form, weak draw. Mannarino's the only real threat)
6. Zverev (very weak draw and has shown he can breeze through qualifying recently)
7. Sweeting (better currently than Berrer)
8. Ram (very weak draw, good on the grass)
9. Bolelli (may choke but did beat Simon at Queens and is in a weak draw)
10. Ginepri (weak draw, reckon the winner of Bubka/Ginepri will qualify here)
11. Baker (weak draw)
12. De Schepper (soft draw, good on grass. Winner of De Schepper/Clement will qualify here)
13. Bemelmans (weak draw, think he'll go good on grass)
14. Reynolds (very weak draw)
15. Janowicz (in good form recently)
16. Berankis (talent alone, he's the best player in qualifying on grass IMO)
