Can't be that hard to work out.

5 players have Byes.

The other 6 play off and you get 3 winners, then goes on as a normal event.

http://www.theboodles.com/content/players.php

There is a Boodles tournament, but not all players playing in the event will be playing in the tournament section of it. Some of them will be there to just play one exhibition match. Others will be there to play the tournament, which could mean one, two, or three matches.

It's a bit like the Kooyong Classic and a good warm-up on grass pre-Wimbledon.
8 players in standard knock-out - quarters, semis, final. The losing players then play each other so the guys involved are guaranteed 3 matches on grass.

The other players listed are usually involved in Exhibition matches. There are also doubles matches - hence the Bryans are in and there may be one more dubs team too. Otherwise the B's could play a team made up by 2 of the singles guys.

It runs Tuesday 17th to Saturday 21st June only with matches starting at 2pm. It's held at Stoke Park Club which houses a very good golf course.

They remove the actual set scores once the next set is being played so if you're not there to hear the umpire call it then it's very difficult to find out what happened.

Press Release, 21/06/08

Keifer and Robredo reach the Final of The Boodles Challenge

Former world number 5 Nicolas Keifer hit top form at The Boodles Challenge at the Stoke Park Club in Buckinghamshire today to secure a 6-1, 7-6 victory against Stanislas Wawrinka.

The German recorded his second victory of the week defeating world number 10 Stanislas Wawrinka in straight sets. Keifer, who had already beaten Marcos Baghdatis earlier in the tournament, now advances to tomorrow’s Final against Tommy Robredo.

Nicolas Keifer commented:
“So far this week everything has been really good so I can’t complain. I’m enjoying playing here on the grass and two wins in two days is a great build-up to Wimbledon. I’m coming back tomorrow; and why shouldn’t I come back?!”

today's results

Results from Friday 20th June:
N. Keifer bt S. Wawrinka 6-1, 7-6
T. Robredo bt F. Gonzalez 7-6, 6-3
B. Bryan/M. Bryan bt R. Hutchins/J. Delgado 6-2, 6-3

Don't know why they always write Keifer instead of Kiefer :confused:

And judging by todays OOP, Nalbandian has had enough matches and told the organisers he had had enough !!!
Gulbis beat Nalbandian so he should probably be in the final, but given the confusing nature of the format, I wouldn't necessarily say that Robredo playing the final has anything to do with Gulbis not wanting to play. Personally to me, it all looks very random.

Nalbandian came back and WON against Gulbis on Thursday in a Champions Tie Break


From the official website:

In the final match of the day, David Nalbandian and Ernests Gulbis continued their preparations at the Stoke Park Club in Buckinghamshire finishing off in style with an epic Championship tie-break. To complete a compelling day’s play, Gulbis fought back after dropping the second set to secure a victory 6-3, 6-7, 14-12.

Ernests Gulbis commented:
“"I really enjoyed it out there today. I thought it was a really good match and I’m really happy with my serve ahead of Wimbledon. I love the grass courts here at The Boodles and every match is more experience for me – the more time I get on the grass, the better I can play on it."

In the day’s opening exhibition match, world number 1 doubles pair the Bryan brothers came up against battling British duo Ross Hutchins and Jamie Delgado, with the Americans emerging as 7-6, 6-4 winners.

Results from Thursday 19th June:
B. Bryan/M .Bryan bt R. Hutchins/J. Delgado 7-6, 6-4
N. Djokovic bt M. Baghdatis 6-4, 5-7, 11-9
E. Gulbis bt D. Nalbandian 6-3, 6-7, 14-12

Read into that what you may, though given the Boodles' reputation for accurate information (or lack thereof) I wouldn't be surprised if either one of Gulbis or Nalbandian was the winner.

No chance on both counts.

I was there in 2007 doing the event and was able to pass back accurate info (unlike last year). I might end up going again to cover it at the back end of the week, if I do, I'll relay any info etc. Chances of me going are not high, though. So don't count on it. I'm less inclined to go knowing that Nalbandian won't be there to win this coveted crown.

I am. Coria, Nalbandian, Del Potro. In that order. As far as I'm aware, if Kamikaze does play Boodles it will just be an exhibition, not as part of the tournament. Also the exhibition players are usually not readily available for interview.

If he does play, I really hope he can do well at Boodles. The tournament has a way of changing a player's career. In 2007, Verdasco beat Nalbandian in the final and two years later he is the next in line to be world number one.

No Argentinian player has ever won Boodles and Wimbledon in the same year, or either in any year. So I hope this isn't the year, since I probably can't make it. Hopefully 2010, so I can be there to witness it. :D

Lapentti books semi-final spot with victory over Simon at Boodles

The sunshine held out for world No.7 Gilles Simon as he took on Nicolas Lapentti yesterday (Wednesday), but the English weather got the better of Philippe Kohlschreiber and Viktor Troicki as they took to the court on the second day of The Boodles Challenge.

Simon and Lapentti entertained the crowd at Stoke Park in a thrilling first match which ended in a championship tie-breaker at 13-11.

Lapentti took the first set 6-4 and started the second set 4-0 up before Simon battled back to take the set off the Ecuadorian. Despite the world No.7's form of the last year however, Lapentti walks away with victories over Simon on clay, hard court and now grass. He wil play either Kohlscreiber or Troicki in the semi-finals.

The second match between Philpp Kohlschreiber and Viktor Troicki began under darkening clouds in Stoke Poges, South Bucks, and was eventually suspended with the young Serbian 3-0 in the first set. Play will re-commence today (Thursday) at 1.30pm.

“I am pleased with my performance today, It’s always very nice to play some matches before Wimbledon," said Lapentti.

"It’s great to play here at Boodles against friends where I can practice, play and relax. The rain break was OK - you have to get use to it. I now know how to deal with it - hopefully it won’t rain and the spectators can still enjoy some tennis!”

Also today is the first semi-final between Nicolay Davydenko and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. This is followed by an exhibition match between Fernando Gonzalez and Feliciano Lopez. The final game is Korolev against Evans.

Yesterday, Simon was announced as the eighth seed in the men's draw for Wimbledon, which starts on Monday. Tsonga has been seeded ninth, while Davydenko is 12th and Lopez 22nd. Kohlscreiber is the 27th seed and Troicki 30th.

Davydenko knocks Tsonga out of The Boodles Challenge

Wimbledon’s ninth seed was knocked out of the Boodles Challenge tennis tournament yesterday by Russian Nicolay Davydenko, who will now play in tomorrow's final.

Spectators were treated to two sets of fantastic tennis with both players testing each other to the extreme on the grass. With the match tied at one set all, the players fought it out in a championship tie-breaker eventually ending in 11-9.

The rain delay on Wednesday meant that Philipp Kohlschreiber and Viktor Troicki kicked off play for the spectators at Stoke Park yesterday. The young Serb came out onto the court with a 3-0 advantage and quickly tied up the first set at 6-3. Kohlschreiber however came back to take the second with ease and closed out the game in a championship tie-breaker ending at 10-4.

In the other matches of the day, the crowd were yet again treated to a deciding championship tie-breaker between Fernando Gonzalez and Feliciano Lopez. They endured an arduous contest with the Chilean ending the decider at 10-8.

Russian Evgeny Korolev gave an impressive performance against Great Britain’s young Dan Evans in a straight sets victory at 6-2, 6-4.

Nikolay Davydenko said: "I am surprised. It was a very hard match; especially the tie-break but I played some good shots. It makes me more confident for next week by playing here at Boodles and I’m really enjoying myself.”

Some friends were at Boodles today but only for a couple of hours.

Gonzo beat Nole 7'6(7), 6'7(6) and 10'6 in their match.
Apparently Gonzo seemed to have a bit of a cold and had tape under his right knee; was hitting well.
Djoko serving very well; slipped a couple of times on the grass but seemed OK.
Both players were in a jokey mood.

Gilles Simon took the first set 6'4 off Troicki. Troicki hitting groundstrokes a bit too long; Simon first serve not so great.

That's all I have.

Troicki was playing Simon.
The matches are best of 2 tie-break sets with a CTB to decide if there is a tie.
So, the match carried on after my friend had left.

Kohlschreiber was due to play Lapentii after Troicki/Simon were finished.

Kohlschreiber wins Boodles Challenge

German No.1 Philipp Kohlschreiber looked solid on grass on Saturday as he took the 2009 Boodles Challenge title from Wimbledon’s 12th seed Nicolay Davydenko.

The crowd at Stoke Park were treated to a best of three sets with a championship tie-break decider. Kohlshreiber lost the first 2-6, then came back to take the second 6-2 and stormed the decider 10-5. The tennis was both world class and entertaining with Kohlschreiber’s backhand proving flawless.

Kohlschrieber said: "This really is one the most fantastic atmospheres I've ever played in and I have to say thank you to The Boodles Challenge for making it such an enjoyable tournament.

"I feel like I've had the best preparation for Wimbledon and maybe I can also win some rounds there!"

The German had beaten Nicolas Lapentti in straight sets in Friday's semi-final.

In other matches on the final day of the Wimbledon warm-up event, Great Britain’s very own Wimbledon champion Jamie Murray took to the court with partner Jonathan Erlich against the world No.1 doubles pairing Bob and Mike Bryan.

The American duo took the match in two straight sets but all four players delighted the crowd with some entertaining and exciting tennis.

In the final match of the day, World No.7 Gilles Simon was looking for his first win at Boodles this year. Russian Evgeny Korolev’s hard hitting was impressive, but Simon’s precision took him to a championship tie-breaker. In the decider, however, Korolev’s power proved too much to the Frenchman and the Russian took the tie-break 10-4.

Other players who played in this year’s event include Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Novak Djokovic (pictured) and Viktor Troicki.

Wimbledon gets underway at the All England Club today (Monday).

Here's results/news.

Hanescu def Kohlschreiber 7'6, 6'7, 10'6
Monfils def Kiefer 6'4, 6'2
Korolev def Dan Cox 6'4, 6'2

Apparently Nalbandian is now not playing - means his appearance at Wimbledon must be in doubt unless he's just decided to practice elsewhere.

Tomorrow's OOP:
Korolev v Ginepri
Verdasco v Dustin Brown
Kohlschreiber v Kiefer

No sign yet of Davydenko, Djokovic, Gulbis or Tsonga but perhaps they'll play Thur, Fri or Sat.

EDIT - Gulbis is out according to other threads

I was there today, Nole was looking very good indeed and crushed Simon in next to no time at all. He will be there or there abouts at Wimbledon, looking very comfortable on the grass

Entertaining match between Gasquet and Nalbandian which ended 1 set all with Nalbandian winning the 10 point tiebreak. Nalbandian despite the lack of fitness just oozes so much class

Compatriots Ferrer and Verdasco, second in the line-up, seem to compete even more seriously, and not just because intensity hangs around Ferrer like a dark cloud whenever he’s on court. Whatever informal etiquette governs exhibitions, it doesn’t mandate Verdasco hitting two double-faults in his first service game, nor glaring with pointed annoyance at noisy spectators after he does so. In fact, the grunting physicality of the two men, interrupted as it is by frequent outbreaks of drizzle, seems too powerful and explosive for the tiny court and peaceful setting. This isn’t a show with the players mic’ed up and bantering; tennis itself is the show. It’s blistering forehands, heavy aces and unbelievable gets that elicit the applause from the crowd. The gladiator metaphor is an overused one in tennis, but watching the spectators pour glasses of Pommery champagne for each other while the players grunt and sweat on the grass, it’s hard not to think of Monty Python Romans nibbling otters’ nipples and chaffinch tongues while jadedly applauding the severing of limbs.
