It doesn't sound like he will be playing there unless maybe Murray can't make it?

With Tommy's health I never know if I should want him to play more to get more Matches in or if he should not play and get some rest :confused: I know just about every tennis fan in the world cares about Wimbledon, but I don't
:ras: I want Tommy well for the hard courts because I think if he can stay well (please :angel: ) that he can win some more titles this year :D

:lol: I can't get too excited about these Exhibition Matches myself. It just gives the players'court time and another player to play against. And I hate to mention it with Tommy's luck, but it can also be another chance to get hurt :eek:

My that is great :D Maybe Tommy's victory blew up the site :lol: I tried to go to the site to see if any scores were posted and it started out saying it was loading and it got up to 59%, but that was it :eek: I never got in the site so I came here and good news was waiting ;)

Yes it is nice for Tommy to win, but you are right he was just playing exhibition Matches. I remember earlier this year Tommy defeated Federer in an exhibition, but he sure hasn't defeated him in a Tournament :sad:

I only found the score in the excibitions thread here. And they only talked about the 7-5 in the 3rd.

Well thanks there is no need now for me to go to the exhibition thread here, if that is all the information they posted. But that does seem strange to just give the 3rd Set score :confused:
