:scratch: I thought Mardy was supposed to play this.... oh well. too late for wimby entry anyway.... maybe he figures he'd like the time to try to qualify for RG and be fresher than James was last year in Paris....

Might have to sneak over to this one. Lived here all my life and never been to Forest Hills. Do they still have a grass court Challenger here prior to Wimbledon?

Nope, just one Challenger this year and last year at Forest Hills. I think the last time they had it was 2004 when Justin won it.

Actually, there was a grass court Challenger event at Forest Hills last year...won by Niemeyer. I was there most of the week...the second week of Wimbledon. Unfortunately, it appears as if there will be no grass tournament this year.

You're right! I'd completely forgotten about that one even though Justin mentioned it in his Wimbledon press conferences (as in 'no, my body is so beaten up this week, there's no way I'm going to make that Challenger). Many of those players just scooted up the highway for the Newport tournament the following week I suppose. Thanks for the correction (I'm getting too old to do stuff by memory apparently ;) ).

Man, the weather is really sucking bad. Not the type of rain that you can get away with playing on the clay. Sorry to see Johnny Chu lose. He seems like a nice young man. I'm thinking Russell may take this thing, if they ever get around to playing.

This has been a huge week for Robert. He had to play the qualies, made it into the Main Draw and won the tourney without dropping a set. This title should lift him at least back into the top 250 in the ranking. I'm soo proud of him right now!
