Amazing draw for Flavio, so I hope he doesn't screw it up. Muñoz-De la Nava is a really difficult opponent for him, but he should have the edge on grass, even if I saw them play on grass before and it was excruciating to watch.

Fleishman is really playing :eek: No match practice whatsoever and no easy draw, but I really wish him the best of luck.

Kuznetsov did great last year in the MD. He doesn't have any amazing grass court players in his section here, so he stands a chance. Bohli is of course not an easy draw, but he stands a chance. The other players he really should be able to beat.

Ilhan actually has an easy draw :shrug: If he doesn't qualify, he has only himself to blame.

Kubot has a great draw :shrug: Full of players that have no experience on grass, and then Ram and Reynolds, both of whom are beatable. Reynolds might be tough, but the beatdown he received in Queen's suggests his form, despite qualifying, isn't all that great.

steve darcis v.s ilja bozoljac
andrej martin v.s marco chiudinelli
peter luczak v.s frederik nielsen
daniel smethurst v.s karol beck

This is a very tough section. I could see Darcis, Bozoljac, Nielsen and Beck making it through.

By the way, misty, what is your rationale behind picking Greul of all people to qualify? He is playing someone who is good on grass, and who has been playing on it for a while now in preparation, while Greul himself has no clue on the surface and comes straight off the dirt. I would expect him to lose against a lot of players, let alone make it through three rounds :shrug:

06-12-2011, 08:24 PM
I was planning on going tomorrow, but the weather has been really appalling and I have a lot of revision to do, so I am afraid I will have to follow qualies from home :sobbing:

Filo V.
06-12-2011, 08:26 PM
Oh no, Steve. This is going to be hardcore. Steve better be ready from the beginning and be on his game, because Bozo can definitely beat him. He's going to have to serve well and take advantage of all openings on serve.

Karol and Steve in the same section is awful. Karol playing the Brit Smethurst could be a problem, and I think Nielsen will definitely be a tough match. Hopefully he can make it to at least the third round but it will be difficult.

I think Steve will qualify because I think he can throw Bozo off his game.

Tomic has a nice draw, I think he will qualify.

Schoorel I think will qualify, I expect him to beat Guccione in a similar match to the one they played at RG qualifying and I don't see anyone else in that section who can beat him.

I like Simone's draw, but I hate the fact he's even having to qualify. ONE more withdrawal and he would have been in the MD :mad:

Simon and Simone in the same section sucks. I think Ebden will beat Simon but I would love to be proven wrong. Simon is in good form but Ebden is good on grass and also is in decent form. I think Simone would beat Ebden if they play.

Bjorn has an acceptable draw, but he's awful on grass. Kudry will probably out-hit him and beat him, although he's not great on grass either. If Bjorn were to ever qualify at Wimbledon this is his best chance.

Leo Mayer v Minar, two guys I like in R1. Sad. I can't see either qualifying through that section but hopefully one of them can make it. I think Leo will win that match but lose in the third round of qualifying.

Marc has the best draw of my favorites. I think he should at least get to QR3, but if he plays ERV that will be a tough challenge. Bogdanovic could be tough too as he'll be motivated to play great. Hopefully Marc can qualify but he may need ERV to lose in an earlier round to do so.

06-12-2011, 08:29 PM
French Open was a great draw for basically all of my favorites, this time not so much. If Simone and Simon play each other I will definitely be feeling faint watching the scoreboard.

Kubot has a good draw, which sucks. Hopefully Ciric aces him out of the event. Then Bobby qualifies from that section.

06-12-2011, 10:30 PM
I think the portuguese can both get to 2nd round. Then with Machado vs Tomic (he lost to him at RG, he's not expected to win here...) and Sousa vs Ryan Anderson they'll probably both come home. I hope I'm wrong though...

Filo V.
06-12-2011, 10:53 PM
Yes, I still dislike Kubot, Diana. I'll probably never like him, and since he's defending points at Wimbledon I hope he loses so he will fall from the top 100.

Ilhan has a so-so draw. Janowicz serves big but Marsel has the type of game to beat him. Then a Brit in R2, which is always tough, they will give their all to win. Then likely Fischer, who is good on grass. I think Fischer is a good draw compared to what he could have gotten for the final qualifying round. I think he'll qualify.

Frank is in a tough section, and I can see him losing his R1 match to Robert. His R2 is also difficult on paper. He is the most talented player in the section and he's done well in GS qualifying in the past so we'll see what happens.

Kuznetsov v Bohli is very 50-50 IMO. Andrey has an acceptable draw but not an easy one.

Sonja1989
06-12-2011, 11:29 PM
Filo, Kubot has two chance for defending this 45 points... if he loses to Ciric here, he can play at German challenger too and he doesn't need too lot of points for saving his top 100 ranking. :angel:
Then he doesn't need to defend any points in summer... nothing. :p

Filo V.
06-12-2011, 11:55 PM
Well that makes it even more important that he loses to Ciric :angel:

CooCooCachoo
06-13-2011, 12:28 AM
Kubot losing to Ciric on grass would be an absolute joke. But then again, it's Lukasz, so anything is possible. The odds for a Q1 loss are as low/high as those for a 4R MD appearance.

Filo V.
06-13-2011, 12:48 AM
No, I expect Kubot to qualify, Diana. Ciric is a clay player and the only way he'll win is if he serves huge constantly.

Kubot isn't the player I dislike most, Diana. I dislike Kukushkin much more (the player I can't stand the most). I also dislike Gremelmayr a lot more. Those two off the top of my head, I can't stand.

I don't hate Kubot, I just don't like him. I over exaggerate my dislike for him to get attention :hug:

Filo V.
06-13-2011, 01:02 AM
The Brown-De Voest section for me is the most open. Very hard to predict who will make it through there. I picked De Voest because I think his tricky game will get under the skin of all his potential opponents. I think Zemlja has a pretty decent shot at beating Dustin, solid player vs. wild player.

I'm surprised so many have picked Ito to win his section. I think Andi Beck would definitely beat him if they played.

i agree..and he's just one of those players that , although i dont consider myself a fan it would be good to see him qualify. He deserves to be in the top 100 for sure..but he's had a rough go of it

i do think he will win his section

Filo V.
06-13-2011, 01:51 AM
That's true, I hate having loaded sections of great players and then relatively poor sections. Definitely cheap :(

And I forgot about Odesnik, probably because he's not on the ATP tour. But I probably dislike Cacashkin more than Odrugnik. Both are horrible, though. I'm glad I was reminded of my hate for Waynebuterol, hopefully he loses R1 in Milan this upcoming week :lol:

True, Misty, although I don't consider him a top 100 player. I think he's more tricky than he is good. With that said, he's a hard worker and he truly loves tennis. He's also a very nice guy in general. He's easy to root for and he has a nice game to watch, it would be nice to see him qualifying.

You've obviously not seen Ciric's serve and how quick the courts at Roehampton are? Kubot is still the favourite, but believe me, that's not an opener anyone would have wanted in these qualies.

'reporting from my laptop at Roehampton'

The weather here is piss-poor, big grey clouds everywhere, sporadic rain, etc. If matches appear to be stuck, it's because there are showers here and there. Some of the outer courts took an absolute battering last night as well, apparently. Doubt we'll get through today looking at the weather. Might go down to Eastbourne tomorrow instead :)

This is true, and probably because it is on Roehampton here, and not on the normal grounds.
There isn't a slamtracker here either, that sucks too.

How can Bohli still be suspended? It can't be that local.

Ok, just spoke to one of the organisers, courts 10 and 15 were the worst hit, and it's taken ages to get them ready. They're not expecting more than 60-90 minutes of play at a time, and would rather take precautions today, so the courts are protected in case of any really heavy showers. Courts 1 and 3 are currently being prepared for play.

So basically with the poor conditions of the courts combined with the bad weather forecast, they are putting the play on the backburner on those two courts. Understandable. It does mean the schedule will be a bit weird, but it's good to look out for safety and of course have the courts be at playing shape ASAP.

Very happy to see Ruben and Doud winning easily.

It sucks for the crowd that they are playing on these Courts B-D, because it's impossible to get a really good view there. Unless they are allowing people to stand next to the fence.

I don't think they did, but they had done enough to merit a MD WC. I completely understand why Fucsovics did not get one; he hasn't done anything whatsoever on Tour.

Some guys are more wanting the experience to play a major, others want to get to the top 100 to make them directly.

I don't think that is entirely fair. I've seen Zeballos play at Roehampton, and he was very passionate to be there (even if he played really poorly). The main difference is that he has already played in the main draw in Wimbledon, so he no longer has to dream about playing there. Plus, he probably realises that he has never done well on the surface so it is better to get those much-needed ranking points in a Challenger.

For Lojda, I think Wimbledon remains a rather elusive dream.

Simon had two break points. This Aussie dude is inspired. Simon totally allowed him into the match. This would be awful and disgusting. Handle your fucking shit Simon.

Calm down Filo ;) You're getting way too emotional about this, particularly as you're not at the match and can't see what's happening. Ebden is a legit grass player - far more so than Simon. He could be playing lights out right now. You just don't know.

Simon has had opportunities these last two return games. He's focused. Now he needs to keep holding, and get that break.

I'm not emotional, it's an act for attention. On the inside I am emotional, but the words I'm writing are nothing more than empty words :lol:

Ebden probably is playing inspired tennis and no, we don't know how the match is going. What I do know is Simon was in the clear and now he's on the brink of losing. When you have the sort of lead Simon had you cannot let it slip away at this level.

karol breaks for the first set 6-2 over smethurst

The way Ebden is in all of these games when he wasn't before leads me to believe he's just stepped it up. But he's playing Simon. He needs to lose.

I don't think that is entirely fair. I've seen Zeballos play at Roehampton, and he was very passionate to be there (even if he played really poorly). The main difference is that he has already played in the main draw in Wimbledon, so he no longer has to dream about playing there. Plus, he probably realises that he has never done well on the surface so it is better to get those much-needed ranking points in a Challenger.

For Lojda, I think Wimbledon remains a rather elusive dream.

Oh, I wasn't being critical. It's just different mentalities. Some guys have different priorities. Guys like Zeballos and Ramos are right on the verge of the top 100. So, instead of going to Wimbledon, they play a challenger. If they win it, they are top 100, and situation themselves to make the USO, and play ATP events. Other guys will play a GS qualifying event with little chance to succeed, but as you said, they want to fulfill their dreams. It is what it is, both are perfectly valid positions.

break point for sebastian who's already up 3-2

Guys that have played ATP events semi-regularly if not completely regularly a lot of times will skip major qualifying and play challengers, because they have been through that experience, and they don't have the motivation to qualify. Instead the play a challenger to get into the top 100 so they don't have to worry about qualifying or not. The French is the one slam guys usually all show up, because it's the easiest slam to travel to, and clay is a neutralizing surface.

Di Mauro unable to have a proper claycourt match against Broady, so he makes use of the opportunity to grind it out in a different manner by dragging the match to a lengthy third set.

Simon once again blows a lead in a match and loses. I'm more displeased than disappointed. Just bullshit. But expected from Simon.

Simone will do what is required and win this section. He better.

bernard is involved in a marathon game with reischick at the moment

fought off 4 break points but also let 2 game points slip by..

and he held

3-3

Simon and Bjorn will be in Marburg for next week. I think Simon is in good form, even though he destroyed himself today. Hopefully he keeps winning in challengers.

Bjorn is hopeless, though.

Ebden good win as well. Greul should play a clay challenger next week.

Filo V.
06-13-2011, 03:34 PM
I knew Simon wouldn't qualify, Misty :lol: He's not a grass guy and just came from clay. Ebden is in good form and is a grass guy. The way he lost sucks but the fact he lost is expected.

I'll only be truly upset with this result if Ebden qualifies by beating Simone. I'll be very upset then. Right now, I don't care *too* much.

Anyone else thinks this is one of the weakest quali draws in GS history? So many future players in there...

Filo V.
06-13-2011, 04:00 PM
Karol did what was required. As long as Steve and Bernard win, I can't think of any other favorites to play. So far, outside of Simon losing from ahead, it's been an OK day.

Filo V.
06-13-2011, 04:01 PM
It's a bad draw, Ad Wim, but so was the French Open QD.

Actually, it's not that bad, it's spotty. Some sections are great, some are weak. Which is what it usually is in major qualifying draws at Wimbledon.
