I read the article more closely... it says this:

"Evans said there is a slight possibility that Fish could gain direct entry into next week's ATP Tour event in Rome. He is the third alternate.

If he doesn't make the Rome field, Fish will play the Tunica Challenger ranked roughly 60 spots ahead of No. 2 seed Jeff Morrison."

Well, Mardy IS going to get directly into Rome... hmmmm

Alex isn't there yet so I'm not typing it out :) . He would've been the #5 seed if they could have held off the draw till after Quallies are done :mad:

I had to let out a huge laugh when I got down to the last 1st round match:

Brian Vahaly vs. (2)Justin Gimelstob :lol: :lol:

I thought Gambill was playing here but not in the Draw. Blake vs. Boeker so potentially tough.

This looks like a good tourney to me but I could just turn out to be bias ;)

Is Scolville a pro yet? He's getting so many wildcards and can't do anything with them. Its too much pressure on a child that young.

Nice win for Brian. He seems like such a sweetheart. Same for Delic, it will be interesting to see if he can sustain the upward projectory and become a consistent fixture in the upper echelons. A lot of times you see players come out of college, make a splash, and then slide back down.

I don't think Bogomolov is living up to the hype. There were some great predictions for him a few years ago that haven't panned out at all.

What sort of injury did Gimblestob have that kept him out for so long? Wasn't it something with his foot?

Tricky_Forehand
05-03-2005, 08:34 AM
Unfortunately, I can not respond to your statement about Alex because it is not my place...I can only say that I disagree with you :). He's only 22. Not everyone comes out of the gates and is top 50 right away. Alex is just now in his 3rd year as a professional. I could go on and on but, as I said, it's not my place. :)

Justin broke his foot in November of 2003, came back the week before Wimbledon 2004, so all of his points are free for a few more weeks. He'll need to play somewhere the first week of June, I think, to defend the title he won at Forest Hills last year on grass.

Scoville is 18 (19 this summer I think) so he's not a child. He seems to be a good guy from a pretty good family so I think he will do okay on the tour, but I've only seem him play once (when Andy spanked him) so I don't know what to think of his talent yet.

Didn't he run into a net post or break it some freakish way?

Fee
05-04-2005, 04:47 PM
Don't know, don't think he ever told me how he broke it, he was too busy making a big deal out of the fact that I knew about it, knew that he'd had surgery, and knew that he showed up at the Swingtime event in Florida on crutches. But at least he's stopped calling me a 'tennis freak' these days. Well, he still does that, but I think its become an affectionate nickname now.

cycling accident according to Charlie Bricker:
Copyright 2004 Sun-Sentinel Company
Sun-Sentinel (Fort Lauderdale, FL)
May 2, 2004 Sunday Broward Metro Edition
SPORTS SUNDAY; CHARLES BRICKER ON TENNIS; Pg. 16C
GIMELSTOB GETS BACK
CHARLES BRICKER ON TENNIS

Three more weeks.

Justin Gimelstob is crossing out the days on his mental calendar until he gets back on court. The cycling accident that left him unconscious and had doctors and nurses picking gravel out of his skin for seven hours is now a year and a half into history.

And the broken foot, which could be linked to the accident, is cured. He'll be driving to Tampa from his home in Delray Beach soon to play competitive tennis for the first time in six months.

"I got a good long rest, and that was good. But this hasn't been easy," he said. The rejuvenation process has been exhilarating, but, he added, "Your body also takes a beating from all the training you have to do to get back to where you can play. There have been times when this hasn't been fun, but, really, I can't wait to play again."

While the former U.S. Junior Hardcourt champion is playing a Futures event in Tampa, beginning May 17, girlfriend Corina Morariu, once No. 29 on the women's tour, will be recuperating from shoulder surgery she will have next week.

They've known each other since they were kids, taking lessons at Patch Reef Park in Boca Raton, but have a found a deeper meaning in their relationship since Morariu's successful fight against leukemia and her divorce.

They also share the same birthdate, Jan. 26. Destiny? Who knows? All they know right now is that for 15 months they've been particularly good for each other. Gimelstob was a pillar during her fight for her life, while Morariu has, by Justin's admission, "taught me a lot in terms of priorities in life."

The wild man of the courts doesn't seem so wild any longer at age 27, though who knows what will happen when his competitive fires get stoked up at Tampa and in a later Challenger in Tallahassee?

He's trying to work back slowly with his actual ranking slipped to No. 163 and his protected injury ranking, which can be used to get into regular tour main draws, holding at 107.

Meanwhile, he is working on court at the Delray Beach Tennis Center and off court in the gym and running on the beach.

The cycling accident happened in November 2002, while he was training in a canyon near Los Angeles. "A woman hit the side of my bike while I was riding with my trainer and I went down. I was unconscious for a little while and when I came out of it, I remember my trainer's foot was under my head. It's the first thing I focused on. His shoe and sock was soaked in blood."

He looked worse than he was. After one day he was released from the hospital, but there was a stress fracture in his foot that ultimately produced a full crack at a Challenger in Nottingham, England, last October. There was surgery and a long rehabilitation.

"For five months after that I didn't hit a ball," Gimelstob said. "I haven't done that since I was 7 years old. It gives you time to figure out other things you're interested in. You devote so much of your life to tennis, you start to think what you're going to do when it's over."

He took some classes and The Tennis Channel hired him to do commentary at the Nasdaq-100 Open. Life is opening wider for him, but there's still a lot of tennis in his right arm.

He hasn't had a brilliant professional career with his best ranking a 63 in 1999, but there have been some golden moments. He beat Andre Agassi in 1997 and he's 2-0 against Paradorn Srichaphan.

And if he gets you into a five-setter, he won't lay down. He's won seven of his 10 five-set matches.

Although the Tampa event is on clay, he won't be playing any regular ATP Tour events on clay this spring. The fact is he hasn't won a regular tour match on clay in almost five years, when he upset Petr Korda at the Citrix in Delray Beach.

The plan is to get court-fit and prepare for Wimbledon, where, even on a bad foot, he won a couple of rounds last year, including a five-setter over Arnaud Clement.

Morariu, who has an impingement in her shoulder, has no timetable yet for getting back on court. She hasn't played a singles match this year.

Well-done James. Even though these opponents are players he "should" beat, its hard to be the overwhelming favorite in your own head, but he's looking good.

I want to see him win at least one of these challengers, then qualify for the FO!

The matches today don't even start til 6pm eastern (almost 3 hours from now) and the doubles final is first... so we won't know for several hours yet.

Interesting question, but it is a Saturday night final instead of a Sunday afternoon. Maybe they figured an evening start would give the players just a few more hours to recover from yesterday. Deb should call and get the final results for us so that we don't have to wait all night...
