Querrey wins the US Open Series!

So far only players who were ranked 1st at some point in their career won it.
Great achievement. He will get a nice bonus depending on his result in the US Open:
http://www.usopenseries.com/en/Stand...Challenge.aspx

His results are:
Indianapolis - F (45 points)
Los Angeles - W (70 points)
Washington - R3
Montréal - R1
Cincinnati - R3 (15 points)
New Haven - F (45 points)

Total - 175 points. This is a new record for men (although there are more points this year for the smaller events and Hewitt would have 225 points in the current system in 2004).
A quarter final in New Haven was enough, because Murray has 145 points, and less matches won.

He played a lot of matches this summer and I think he just want to win the US Open Series.
A quarter final will be enough for him, so I believe he will retire before the match, or after a few games there.

he will retire after the first point of the match IMO

Murray has exactly the same score from only two tournaments. How fresh will Querrey be going into the US Open?

Who won it last year? I'm pretty sure it wasn't Nadal, so it can't always have been #1 to win it.

US Open performance does not count towards who wins the US Open series. That is solely determined by the warm up events.

The system is a bit messed up. The player who has gathered 145 points while playing fewer matches should win. Surely that's common sense?

Clydey
08-27-2009, 12:04 AM
It was Nadal.

Did Nadal play a smaller event? Murray and Nadal each won an MS event and reached the semis of the other. I recall Simon was up there, too.

Murray had the same points as the winner last year too :lol:. I think Rafa won because he had beaten Murray in Toronto.

Taken from the US Open series site:

3. Tie-Break Procedures: The following tie-break procedures will be used in the event of any tie(s) for the first, second and/or third place finishers.

In the event of a 2-way tie (for either first place and second place, or second place and third place, or third place and fourth place), then a-e below shall be applied, in order, until the tie is broken:

a. Head-to-head record in Olympus US Open Series matches (in the current year)
b. Greatest number of Olympus US Open Series matches won (in the current year)
c. Greatest number of Olympus US Open Series sets won (in the current year)
d. Greatest number of Olympus US Open Series games won (in the current year)
e. If a tie still exists after applying the above, the tie shall be broken by a coin toss

Seeing as the aim of the US Open series was to popularise tennis in the USA, I guess it makes sense to give the greatest reward to the guy that plays (and wins) more matches.

Not if the goal of the series is to get top players to play all the events (which is more or less why it was created).

Yeah, you're right actually. I remember something about the H2H during the series being the tiebreaker.

what better way to celebrate the US Open series than with some classic american cinema...?



And, of course, the scene that my sig came from. Bill Duke, take it away.


yes, dialogue really hit a purple patch around this time...

but, there were a few peaks early on in the 80's too... some argued whether arnies career could recover from such an epic one liner... but, heh, history tells us he was bigger than that... here is the often forgotten blueprint... classic screenwriting delivered after some typically heavy ArnieRage...

Oh dear! I have to show my colossal ignorance and admit I had never heard of the US open series.

However having read this thread, I think it's a great idea to reward a mid ranking player who has the guts to turn up and play every week.

He could be very tired in the US Open

That's why He always suck in GS and Masters. Because He don't look to win the big match in GS and Masters. He just like to play MM

I wonder if the US Open can buy insurance against the $1 million payout to Querrey (sort of like you can buy insurance against a $1 million dollar payout at hole-in-one competitions in golf).

If so, I imagine the cost of such insurance would be about $1.

But does he deserve>?????

He never done anything in GS and Masters.
Which Robby got a semi Final back to 2005. Blake got three GS QFinal and even Fish got two Q Final in GS

The system is a bit messed up. The player who has gathered 145 points while playing fewer matches should win. Surely that's common sense?

The whole point of the creation of the USO Series was to get as many players playing all these NA hardcourt leadup events. Common sense is to award it to the one who achieved the points with less events/matches played, but when dealing with a promotional contest, the one who plays the most wins.

First time the USO Series goes to a chump. Querrey has played some excellent tennis during this swing, don't get me wrong, but he whored up every single event, was only able to get the big results in small events, and crashed and burned earl in the bigger events. He'll get a little money boost for the US Open as I don't see him making it to the 4th round.

the system is totally shit, not even a qf at a masters and he wins, anyway has a good draw at the open...lots of money to win

Horatio Caine
08-28-2009, 09:21 AM
A good achievement for him, and the bonus money will no doubt come in handy (if anything because women are expensive :tape: )...but it is hard to take the points weighting seriously. As has already been said in this thread, he did extremely well in the MM events, but you can count the number of matches he won at '500' and '1000' level on one hand.

timafi
08-28-2009, 01:48 PM
on his resume he'll have that to brag about but the bottom line is he hasn't done shit in neither 3 slams this year and the Masters Series
would be nice if he went out in the First round too:tape:
that arrogant punk had the audacity to compare himself to Del Potro:rolleyes:

rubbERR
08-28-2009, 01:59 PM
he got this beating players ranked around 80-120, this us open series is too cool :lol:

indianapolis he beat 30 ranked dudi sela and 22 ranked tommy haas, those were his highlights until he beat fatigued Roddick only to lose Hewitt next round and error machine davydenko this week :lol:

amirbachar
08-29-2009, 05:53 PM
And he sets a new record for men with 175 points (although Hewitt could have 225 in 2004 with the new system).
