Istomin did get an SE. I thought that was only possible if you were beneath the cut off ranking wise of the tournament? :scratch:

He plays Evans in R1, that could be a loss. Then the big server Walter likely in R2, then potentially Yang. I'd be surprised if he wins this event.

ATP Rule Book (Sec VII The Competition):

Special Exempt Awarded if Player Is in Semis?
Case: A tournament has a Saturday final and a player asks for a special
exempt after he wins his quarterfinal match on Thursday. Is he
eligible?
Decision: No. The player must be scheduled to play on Saturday
when the "qualifying begins".

There you can see schelude for tomorror there have some players that played early morning: Molchanov , Albot, Istomin,An. martin, Rungkat, Kravchuk, Istomin, Elgin, Kudryvatsve, Levadovskih, Menendez. So they all probably won or won by retirement.

Tristanslav
08-16-2011, 12:42 PM
I've said it before and I'll say it again, ATP have to take responsibility for this, and put in place a system whereby challengers can only be held if there is a valid, working score update facility available. They want to make money through sponsorship, betting, and fan interest, then they need to provide people with the facility to see what the hell is going on. It's not like we're talking about a 10k futures event here.

But last week I tried to call up Samarkand and nobody picked up (even tournament director :worship: )

Elgin is insanely erratic but if he has any scores anywhere in singles, it's only in these Soviet challengers...

Lately when I was writing something on MTF is turned out the way around, but I think Dustov should give some fight to Kavcic, although Kavcic is the defending champ.

I like Kudryavstev way more than Ledovskikh, blah. 2 matches in a row lost by Sasha to his friend... Molchanov is a nice guy too, I sent him some pictures and he was very happy :D( edit, of course not my pictures, but his pictures taken at tournaments by our reporters lol)

Haha Istomin demolishing these mugs like he should. What an easy tournament here...

Blaz Kavcic on Twitter about the weather in Karshi:

Skozi prvo kolo z rezultatom 62 75 v tezkih pogojih. V senci samo 40 stopinj celzija. Na soncu pa piclih 55... :)) V Ameriki me bo zeblo.:)

Damn, Kravchuk almost won the first set, things could have been different in that match if he did. Oh well, Blaz will need to save the situation and win tomorrow. Great fight from Blaz winning even though Ledovskikh seemed to play well and is dangerous when he does.

Good to see Istomin secures some more wins in the past couple of weeks.

Hope he's winning the final.

Blaž :hug:
A strange final, with those breadsticks, but still a good USopen preparation. :)Won 4 matches before falling to Istomin.

But we also know there is a totaly different ballgame in a slam. Let's hope they fix a good draw for Blaž and Denis. ;)

Elgin&Kudryatsev, big doubles. In 4 weeks, i think they win 3. Great results.

Elgin & Kudryavtsev have 7 challenger finals in 2011: 5 wins (Guangzhou, Pingguo, Pozoblanco, Samarkand, Karshi) and 2 losses (Kazan,Bergamo)

Good for Istomin, his game can be dangerous to some decent players when he's on.

Horrible result. Hopefully Denis loses again at the ATP level and drops from the top 100 finally.

I don't hate Denis but I don't like him enough for him to be top 100 over others. Now that he's close to being out I hope he eventually falls out.

Very silly reason. He is better than some of the people who exist in the top 100, at least Istomin can and has won matches at Slam and ATP level.

Istomin always the favourite to win this.

I had a pleasure of seeing live Istomin outfighting Nicolas Lapentti in 5 sets, in front of mad Latin crowd at USO, and I'm a fan ever since.
