Wow, the field looks quite a bit stronger than last year - Healey lost in qualies then.

Anyone going? I'll probably be there for at least the SFs and final, maybe the last 1 or 2 QFs, depends on whether I can leave work early that Friday.

So now the qualifiers only have to play 2 matches to get into the main draw? The heat/humidity is killer right now, could explain why players are reluctant to go to Lexington.

Very glad to see the Lexington tournament director did not give a WC to Donald Young - I remember seeing him hanging around during the qualies last year. No, he didn't win his main draw match there either.

Draw looks okay to me - no weaker than last year's. Seems worth the 2 hour drive down there for the SFs and finals.

Not to put any doubt in their marriage or anything, but Ashley was scheduled to play the qualies of WTA Cincinnati last week but couldn't because she was still playing at ITF Louisville. ;)

La Tennista , No doubt check http://snipurl.com/giyh , i understand couldn't get into Cincinnati qualis. What a great, cool young woman, i hope she has a fantastic summer and makes it into the us open. She may not always win, but she sure makes a lot of players out there battle to beat her, and she has a kind of unique intensity/personality when she plays. no matter what criticisms she has undeniable charisma every time i watch a match of hers when she's playing hard, there is an electricity.

Alex's wife was not in Tarzana. Yes, she took the week off but she was not here.

hamilton877
07-27-2005, 10:15 PM
Tennis 724 maybe it was another girl cause Alex wife is not short?. La Tenista is saying no doubt in their marriage at the beginnig of the year Alex wife tag along driving him to Dallas, Sunrise, Key Biscayne tournaments, i think their thoughts are when there are off there are together. next time for them will be the Bronx

Tricky_Forehand
07-27-2005, 11:15 PM
Well, I was there every day so I can tell you that his wife was not in Tarzana. If what you guys need to think is that when there is a week off...that automatically means that they are together, then have at it.

I just don't get why people need to wonder those type of things about people they don't even know and why it matters :shrug:. When Dallas, Sunrise, and Miami took place...she was not competing yet.

hamilton877
07-27-2005, 11:33 PM

Tricky_Forehand
07-27-2005, 11:42 PM

Tennis 724 did you see this. Alex Bogomolov Jr. posted tremendous results last week at the $50,000 Singha Tennis Classic in Tarzana, Calif. The 22-year-old right-hander swept both the singles and doubles titles at the event, giving him his first USTA Pro Circuit championship in two years and a total of four for his career.

Seeded third in the singles draw, Bogomolov pulled out two comeback wins in his first- and quarterfinal-round matches, defeating Todd Widom, 6-7 (7), 6-0, 6-4, in round one and Paul Baccanello, 3-6, 6-4, 7-5, in the quarters. He won his other three matches in straight sets, including the final, in which he knocked off fourth-seed Thiago Alves, 6-3, 6-2, for the title.

Teaming with Travis Rettenmaier in doubles, the American duo notched upset wins in three of their four matches, including a 7-6 (6), 3-6, 6-1 second-round victory over the top-seeded Israeli team of Amir Hadad and Harel Levy. In the final, they beat No. 3-seeds Nathan Healey and Robert Smeets of Australia in three sets, 6-7 (3), 7-6 (7), 6-3.

Bogomolov, who married American tennis star Ashley Harkleroad last December, has now won three singles and one doubles championship on the USTA Circuit. With his performance in Tarzana, his INDESIT ATP Entry Ranking moved up 19 spots to No. 161.

FEATURED WOMEN SHOW WHAT THEY’RE MADE OF





5/3 Bank Tennis Championships




Third-seeded Ashley Harkleroad showed flashes of why she reached No. 39 in the world about a year ago and unseeded Kentuckian Julie Ditty (on the adjacent Centre Court) used the scorching forehand she’ll need to even dream of that number, in first round victories of the $100,000 USTA Fifth Third Bank Tennis Championships last night at UK’s Boone Tennis Stadium.



“I’m trying not to put too much emphasis on winning or losing... but keep working to improve instead,” said Harkleroad, who started clawing her way back on the chart (now at 137) in April after taking nine months off to rehab a torn tendon in her hitting elbow and be with her mother who had been diagnosed with cancer.



Her solid 6-2, 6-3 downing of Kristen Schlukebir never gave a clue she is still dealing with a painful urinary tract infection she picked up while winning the Louisville Challenger almost two weeks ago. She decided to return to the Bluegrass rather than fly to California for a larger prize-money event because her Chattanooga home is driving distance and life is better.



“I’m in a good place in my life and in my tennis right now,” said the 20-year-old, who married tour player Alex Bogomolov Jr. in December. He recently won a $50,000 event in Tarzana, CA, and is seeded second in doubles here with Jeremy Wurtzman, conquerors of Jesse Witten and Andrew Colombo last night.

Tennis 724 when was the last time you went to an ophthalmologist? , she was there didn't you see the girl that hug and kiss him, it went away to fast for your eyes. have you seen them together at a tournament their love is solid as a rock, holding hands , kissing and hugging. at Dallas , Sunrise , Miami , driving him around in a red toyota celica GT-S 2 dr hatchback. why do people want to know everything about their tennis stars, just like people want to know everything about their movie stars, what the stars do outside the court is an interest to all fans, there is absolutely nothing wrong. about her height she is short 5'5" and had her hair cut. could be you don't recognize her. why do i detect that you don't like Alex wife, you can't stand it , you don't want to hear about it , you wish it was you, you are out of luck he is taken. you are sweating him, this mean you are not a fan. you fantasies.

Harkleroad,
THIRD SEED EMPHASIZES IMPROVEMENT



Third-seeded Ashley Harkleroad showed why she reached No. 39 in the world a year ago, and unseeded Kentuckian Julie Ditty relied on her scorching forehand during first-round victories in the Fifth Third Bank Tennis Championships last night at UK's Boone Tennis Complex.

"I'm trying not to put too much emphasis on winning or losing, but keep working to improve instead," said Harkleroad, who is now ranked No. 137 after taking nine months off to rehabilitate a torn tendon in her hitting elbow and to be with her mother, who had been diagnosed with cancer. She returned in April.

Harkleroad, who won the Louisville Challenger two weeks ago, defeated Kristen Schlukebir 6-2, 6-3. She decided to return to Kentucky rather than fly to California for an event offering more prize money because of proximity to her Chattanooga home.

"I'm in a good place in my life and in my tennis right now," said the 20-year-old, who married tour player Alex Bogomolov Jr. in December. He is seeded second in doubles here with Jeremy Wurtzman. They beat former University of Kentucky All-American Jesse Witten and Andrew Colombo last night

Ashley Harkleroad. What a sweet girl. I so much enjoyed your interview with her. I wish her luck in tennis and luck in life. She has a great game and I am looking forward to seeing her play again! Best wishes and prayers for her mother and her mother's sister that they may have a complete recovery and good health again .

Sorry, Sprem but Alex's wife was not here in Tarzana. I do not know why you are so insistent that she was. I highly doubt that she would have flown out for one day. If you can give me the one day when you supposedly saw her then I could be wrong. But, as I said, I doubt that she would come out for one day.

And I don't want to hear about Alex or his wife's personal life on a MB because it's just that...their PERSONAL life. Which means that it is no one's business.

Tennis 724, Seeing them at a tennis tournament either arriving or leaving on their car at the same time i am leaving. nothing wrong there, that isn't their private life, that is seeing them at their jobs. learn to let go, since Alex wife married you don't see anybody after her, she is off the market like he is. when fans, i should say again when fans write to her is just nice gestures, before marriage was different people asking for pictures they can scan of her, there were after her now that is over. they respect they moved to other prospects, you got to grow up, be realistic, one of this day you will wake up and said to yourself how silly you were. maybe you didn't recognize her because her skin is whiter than before it looks like she needs a little bit of sun. on the pale side. sorry if my comment hurt you but is the truth.

Tennis 724, i hear you, i got your message. it doesn't make sense if he was going to go anyways to Lexington, is probably the reason why he went to play doubles, is not worth to go for doubles only but this the opportunity to be together with his wife.

Guys, this isn't Non-Tennis. If you want to have philosophical discussions or whatever, why don't you take it there.

Reynolds def. Baker 7-5 7-5 in the other semi :(

I was there yesterday. Baker was doing quite a bit of talking to/yelling at himself and he couldn't really make any dents in Reynolds' service games. Some raquet throwing too, seemed in stark contrast to Reynolds' relative calm on court. Since Reynolds was holding serve easily he took a few more chances on returns, which paid off with early break point chances in each set, which Baker saved. However in the 11th game in both Baker got tight and dropped serve. Reynolds consolated his breaks to win each set.

I left the site for a break when Sela was leading Kimmich 6-2, 4*-3. Sela was very consistent on his groundstrokes - they were almost always in except when they were out, they were a mile out. Kinda scary because at Lexington there are 2 center courts where play is going on without a fence or anything inbetween the two and a women's SF match was going on at the same time.

When I came back the 7 pm matches had already started. Jenkins/Reynolds beat a pair of Frenchmen 7-5, 6-1 and seemed to be having a lot of fun though I was really watching the other match going on - Dubois vs Harkleroad. The Canadian won in three. :sad:

Sela outlasts Reynolds for title
LEFTY GRANDIN CAPTURES WOMEN'S CROWN

By Terez Paylor
HERALD-LEADER STAFF WRITER

Before yesterday, the only time that Dudi Sela and Bobby Reynolds had ever faced each other was last year in the Austin Challenger, which Sela won 6-0, 6-1.

And despite Reynolds' best efforts, Sela came out on top again. Sela defeated Reynolds 6-3, 3-6, 6-4 yesterday in the men's finals of the Fifth Third Bank Tennis Championships at the University of Kentucky.

In the women's finals, unseeded Natalie Grandin of South Africa defeated No. 8 Stephanie Dubois of Canada 6-4, 6-3.

After Sela, who is from Israel, took the first set, it looked like the match would be a repeat of his straight-sets victory over Reynolds last year. But Reynolds started to find his serve and forehand, and he took the second set after winning the first three games.

Sela said that he lost the second set because he started playing conservatively.

"In the second set, I was already thinking about the win and I started hitting the ball shorter, not really going for it," Sela said.

Reynolds, who attended Vanderbilt, rode his revived power game to a 4-3 lead in the third set, but Sela broke back to tie the match at 4-4.

"We were both returning a little better than we were serving, so that would have been a huge game if I could have gotten that one," Reynolds said.

Reynolds' power failed him in his final service game. Down a break at 5-4, he hit three shots into the net.

"It worked well in the second set, but in the last game I missed three forehands," Reynolds said. "You kind of live and die by your weapons."

Sela said he that he knew that Reynolds would be tougher to beat the second time around.

"It was the finals, so I knew he was going to fight for each point," Sela said. "He has also gotten much better."

Sela's coach, Ron Steele, said he knew that Reynolds was going to be tough because of his power.

"Bobby was the most dangerous player in the tournament for Dudi," Steele said. "I knew his serve could be dangerous. It's tough to get into a rhythm against him because he just keeps whipping out these powerful shots. Luckily for us he misses a few."

Reynolds was disappointed by the outcome, but optimistic about his future.

"It was my first time in the finals. Hopefully I can learn from it. If someone would have told me before the tournament that I'd get second place, I would have been happy."

On the women's side, Grandin used a cool demeanor and variety of shots to control the tempo of her match against Dubois and win her first challenger-series title in three years.

"I wasn't expecting this," Grandin said. "I just wanted to play my game and be aggressive."

Dubois said she had trouble against the left-handed Grandin.

"I don't really play against lefties, it's just different. But she played great," Dubois said.
