The Wimbledon list comes out after this week. Maybe he wanted to play in a bit weaker tournament to get the points he needs for Wimbledon. Otherwise Israel would have been a good choice, as he plays on hard the week before.

The winner of the ERV-Minar match should go deep in this tournament.

I don't expect Dustin to do anything more than a QF.

Rochus has a good draw on paper, but I can see him losing in the QF, hopefully he doesn't and he wins this event.

I think Knittel or Begemann will make it on the top half.

Begemann will lose in the first round IMO. Prodon is a good clay-court player.

He is, but Begemann showed he was last year too. I think Begemann can hit Prodon off the court.

Thank you :) I love this tournaments, because this is basically how tennis is without the glitz and glam. Just guys trying to make a living, make a name for themselves, the mix of old and young guys, the different countries. I love it.

I knew Begemann would win that match, he hits too hard for Prodon, he can knock him off the court. Begemann is someone who IMO can beat most challenger players on clay, judging from his game and results. He's similar to Brands.

Trujillo can beat JPB who seemed injured last week. A QF at a challenger would be a nice result for him and good ranking points.

Surprisingly I caught Desein @1.5 against an Egyptian player :scratch: I wonder what is the reason for the odds high like that :awww:

yap, i ask myself today same question... 1,5 answer is: because home ground you know that , that player won't pass first round if there is no homeground

Filo V.

Expected loss for Dustin. I thought he could lose to Olaso, and definitely expected him to lose to Knittel. He's simply not going to win much on clay, and needs to get to the grass as soon as possible. However, he is ruining his chance to be top 100 for Wimbledon, and he has 50 points coming off soon.

Glad Chris won so easily as he should, the likely match between him and Minar will decide the bottom half winner, and I expect Knittel to win the top half.

The draw does look a little like a strong future event, not challenger quality, but that to me was to be expected when the entry list came out.

Nathaliia
05-05-2010, 06:41 PM
Yeah I was also predicting a Brown's loss, the only thing that made me hesitate was that Olaso was pretty rubbish in the past weeks. Apparently last time Dustin won a match on clay (apart from beating an Egyptian lucky loser here) was in September last year and he defeated the world's famous Marcin Gawron.

Anyway this needs to be said, Desein what an effing effort.

Ad Wim
05-05-2010, 07:00 PM
Just stupid he goes to clay, I've said this multiple times the last weeks. He doesn't even play Roland Garros qualis and he has lost first round on clay every time this year and on HC he got pretty far each time. Stick to your best surface, Dustin.

:confused:

Indoor hc and Johannesburg are different surfaces than outdoor hard.

Still, his outdoor hardcourt skills are much higher than his clay skills, his results show that. And that he is better on indoor hard and Joburg is only proof that he is better on quicker courts, so better on hard than on clay.

Minar next round start Boeing 747 and fly home :)))

Why? Minar can beat Rochus even in straight sets. He's winning easy against decent rivals and Rochus isn't a big server, kind of player usually defeats him. Really this SF is almost a final, he'll be less tired and should take it.

Filo V.
