There are players around #600 in the world entering the qualy too... I'msure it'll be an amazing experience... even if I get my ass kicked....I'd play my first profesional match

What week is it for???
04-13-2005, 03:49 AM
It starts April 18th (or 19th), and the qualy should be played on Saturday and Sunday...
The top ranked player to enter the main draw is something like #350... not so bad

nice. tell us about your game. what are your strengths? (i won't ask about your weaknesses just in case any of your opponents are lurking :p )
04-13-2005, 03:58 AM
lol I'll tell you more about me.
I'm 16, from Mexico, I'm not a top ranked player, but I'm one of those who will never give tennis up... definitely a 6.5 - 7.0 player.
Some promotors and coaches from Bolletieri came to my city to "search" for players that could join their academy. Well, I thought they'd pick up the TOP ranked players....but they picked up me!
This guy (Percy Melzi) told me that even though I didnt win many matches, I played with more heart than anyone around, he said he could see it in my eyes and my concentration. So I was given a scholarship to spend 2 weeks ad the Bolletieri Tennis Academy (I may go either in summer or at the end of the year).

I hope you have fun and possibly win a match.
The scholarship to Bolletieri's sounds awesome! :D

Congratulations to you!!!
Let us know how this tournament turns out for you.
By the way, doesn't anybody on this board play Satellites?

dayum, you could beat Gael tomorrow!! :eek:
all the best in your tourny. i'm sure you'll learn a lot regardless of the outcome :wavey:

And I'm also entering so I can "get the idea" of how's the game level @ the future level. Because when I turn 19 (when i get out of high school), I'll go either to Monterrey or the US and try to get a schollarship @ a university which "supports" me in tennis, so I'd be playing futures, and if I do well, when I finish studying I'll play futures and Challengers and get as far as I can...

Good luck :angel:

Definitely keep us, ah, posted. On your results, I mean.
Play well and have fun!
04-13-2005, 02:46 PM
mucha suerte!! :yeah:

si estuviese allí como juez de línea le cantaría todas out a tu rival :lol:
04-14-2005, 02:55 AM
good luck buddy. :D

Hi how did you get on in the qualies?? Did someone called Robert Dee play in the qualies at all? He played in the Mexico Challenger 2 last week, just was thinking if he played there, he might of gone to the Mexico future qualies as well??
04-16-2005, 09:28 PM
Congrats man :D Best of luck!
04-17-2005, 04:12 AM
I didnt get in!!!!!! :( :( :( :(
The Mexican Federation had this weird rule that ,even if you're good enough to play, you had to play the Monterrey national tournament (which was played a month ago) and I didnt go to Monterrey because I just couldnt afford it!!!
God I was so pissed.... anyway two of my friends got in.... The first one, Alan Gómez (who I can defeat) lost 6-0 6-1 to Scott Chirchlow, and my other friend, Adrián Guzmán (that I cant beat hehe) won.... double bagel!!!!!!! (against David Barroso) and hes playing Reyes-Varela (Mexico's top junior) who i saw at last year's casablanca cup.
I'm really upset I couldnt get in... cuz it would have been an extraordinary experience... anyway ill just cheer for Adrián...
(BTW Robert Dee didnt play)
04-17-2005, 08:34 AM
ah man unlucky. Do you reckon that would go for all tournaments, that you would have to enter one of thier national tournaments before you enter one of the pro ones??
04-17-2005, 01:21 PM
No, the &%@# Mexican Federation suddenly decided to put this new rule only for this future.... no wonder Mexico stinks at tennis...
04-17-2005, 03:11 PM
so sorry you didn't get in. :sad: can you try for next year? i know from experience that it's hard to keep track of these Federation rules. but sometimes they themselves have no choice as they are funded by the ITF and have to follow its rules. all the best in your next tourny.
04-19-2005, 07:16 PM
Hi are you planning on entering any other futures in Mexico, or do they all expect you to have played in that national one???
