A little tougher competetion, but ok for a 500 series event. Tommy crushed Querrey in Memphis 2007 (and also won the two other encounters with him), but then again, that was some hell of a Tommy. Guess we will know more about Tommy's condition after tonight's match against Andy ...

well at least from tonights defeat Tommy will get some rest. As you said a little tougher comp but I guess Tommy can get the quarters again easily.But enough of mine prejudge ,don't wanna invoke bad signs :) We'll see,Tommy's fit again and then nothings impossible. ;)

Tough draw imo, he should beat Querrey but I wouldn't underrate him. Then two dangerous players like Baghdatis or Nishikori. It's not that easy. ;)

Yes, this draw is dangerous. He should beat Querrey but Baghdatis and Nishikori are not that easy. A possible rematch against Roddick in the quarters should be enough motivation but it's a hard way to go!

good luck Tommy! Just do your best!
TBH it's rpetty tough to predict here. we no Tommy is in good shape (not the best ever, but pretty good), he should beat Querry, although Sam has improved a lot, it's not gonna be easy. Baghdatis's shape is a big question mark, he had injuries and he
s coming back now, don't know where he's standing now. Nishikori is young and talented, Tommy is better than him ofcourse, but the guy is very good.

Good luck Tommy :yeah:

Not a good draw at all IMHO. And with the way Andy handled Tommy in San Jose I'm afraid there is a big difference in Tommy's game now with the elbow trouble added on to all the shoulder problems :sad:

There are no elbow and shoulder problems at the moment.

I was shocked that after listing Tommy as having been given a W/C it was changed and the W/C was given to Donald Young :ras: But, of course, Tommy got in off the Alt. List so it still worked out O.K. But Donald Young over Tommy :eek: --no way that should have happened :rolleyes:

Mae I guess you misunderstood that.Tommy was given a WC,yes,but no need for that as he entered directly.So Donald Young can be thankful to that. No way that they would choose Young over Tommy.

I guess the W/C was posted for Tommy before he got directly him. Leaving me with the impression it had been taken away from him when actually it turned out he didn't need it. I thought if they chose Donald over Tommy they were crazy :crazy:

Also no Tommy on Tuesday, so they give him a little break, that's nice. Also for me, 'cause I have an exam tomorrow morning ... ;)

On myp2p it says something about Thursday. Whatever that's worth. At least for the first rounds there's no option.

Sounds about right, given that not even the official Paystream is showing any Tennis from Memphis before Thursday.

I don't know, weak serving, not one return point at all until now ... I don't have a good feeling about this, not going to work out well today I fear. Maybe last week was a little too much.

Ah crap. Matchpoint after a DF. All just went wrong. Oh well. Time for some rest. Hopefully more luck in Delray. It's a little sad, since it's Memphis, of all places! But I'm still confident. He'll get there, soon ...

I thought you said pessimistic. :p Again,I am sad as well,but optimistic about the future.This is just another defeat like the one in LA last year loosing to Young.
But Delray is next so here we come ;)

weird scoreline...Querrey was a break ahead each set and Tommy came back, he led *3:1 in the TB and 40:15 in the last service game...not good enough today

I knew this wasn't a good draw. And I wonder with the Doubles play in San Jose, if Tommy didn't play too much tennis in too short of a time :unsure:
