:worship: Great emphatic win. I thought this would be a much tougher match for him.

Please draw Ram now

Fighter :worship:

But yes, great job Somdev, and so happy he came back in the first set, unexpected but very good win for him!

I would love him to draw Ram, but I want him to draw Crazy Dani/Monaco, I think he could win those matches, and then he would have a chance at going pretty deep, especially if A-Rod loses R1.

Nice win:eek: I was expecting him to lose at the last stage of qualifying as he is wont to do.

Somdev is so close to the top 100 now, just one win should put him right there. Hopefully he doesn't draw Berdych or Gonzalez.

Good job Somdev!
I haven't the chance to see him play in ages...hopefully he gets a good draw and eventually a match that will be televised or streamed in my cased.

Manna is just coming back from injury and clay is his worst surface.
I guess that a R3 qualy isn't a bad result for him at this point. His victories over Delgado and Salamanca are good. But he could have win today.

I thought Mannarino would have more heart than that.

Somdev drew Marco C. to play either Golubev/Isner. Have to say, it's a pretty nice opportunity for a 3rd round for Somdev. I 100% expect him to beat Marco.

Dream draw for him. Now lets see what he does with it...

Yeah, this is the type of situation he needs to take advantage of to take the next step. I would love to see him on TV vs. Big John so hopefully they win their R1 matches.

Rematch from their epic NCAA final that Devvarman won at Isner's home courts.

Yeah, I remember that, it was big news here in our city. I remember how the crowd was so against him and he basically used that as fuel. That's the type of fighter and determination he has. Somdev has a game that can beat Isner, good returns/solid/pretty good forehand to move him around. But I know not to look too far ahead, so I hope he can just beat Marco.

Why would he beat Chiudinelli? I don't think he's fave.

Marco hasn't played well this year and isn't great on clay. Marco isn't the type who can punish Somdev and bully him, which is the type of player that beats him. Marco can hit hard but he isn't overly consistent and he isn't a great mover. So I think Somdev has those working in his favor, and he'll wear Marco down and win in 4 sets.

chiudinelli should still win, somdev is just not good on clay

he has been pretty lucky with his qualifying draw too

Yeah, he's been pretty lucky, but you have to take advantage of it and he has, so I'm happy for that.

Somdev personally likes to play on clay and played on it when he was young but his game definitely does not translate well to clay at all. But I still think he's going to beat Marco. I don't think Marco can be consistent enough to win that match, and I think Somdev can neutralize Marco's strengths. Marco isn't good on clay either.

I might be hyping myself too much but I think Somdev is the favorite.
