double the prizes of last year, if I remember correctly. Let's hope for a better entry list than last year's, which was one of the weakest in the entire challenger tour. Primarily, I would expect Dudi Sela to come and play in front of the home fans.

You were the strange guy, who didn't even want to attend the tournament last year despite free admission right?

Yes, that was me, and I didn't attend. I stood behind everything I said last year, and still do.

they are young players from israel that do better from him.

I'm not sure about this, if I remember well Hadad was unranked or with very poor ranking (due to few activity) and played futures in Israel from qualies and only did not better than Levy and Okun, who are a actually more Challenger level players.

Isn't Hadad that fat guy who played davis cup doubles vs. sweden? xD

yes, but he did well in very weak futures in israel, so not sure about how he will do in the strong challenger in Ramat Hasharon (it should be strong with those early entries).

TalTennis
04-12-2009, 07:13 AM
If he is in the same physical shape we saw in DC, he won't do anything in singles. In doubles he can partly cover for it with his good serves, in singles it's not even close to being enough.

YES! I was just thinking the same thing. Another Donald Young story...didn't end up doing him any favours. Better to make the younger players earn the right to compete!

Hm the organizers (and the small amount of double players) are very nice to Jonathan Erlich on his comeback. He plays against Hadad (isn´t it that slightly overweight player from the davis cup competition :scratch:) and a tired Stadler, who also plays singles tomorrow :p.

Nveretheless I wish them good luck as well :)

Zirconek
05-05-2009, 10:31 PM
Yes, that's Hadad, but he is a doubles especialist and also in doubles you can be a bit overweight and/or veteran and this is not a big problem. Stadler also won already a doubles title this year (St. Brieuc), so the top Israeli team could have had a better luck in the draw. ;)

Gooch - Future World Number 1 in doubles

Nathaliia
05-10-2009, 11:24 PM
I waited with the congratulations for the winners because I knew I'd have a report & pics from the finals (http://www.tennisalternative.com/news.php?readmore=485) - apparently Andyoni won't play together this season except DC :sad:

Gooch is the best, never in doubt.

jmf07
05-11-2009, 01:35 AM
Gooch once again pulling the crowds. Ram and Erlich must have been happy that so many people came to watch the Gooch play against them. A smart move by them to only play DC as well as they know they are certain not to run into the Gooch unlike other tournaments.

jmf07
05-11-2009, 01:37 AM
Unfortunately Erlich has to play Gooch first round of doubles in Izmir. Poor guy.
