Hi Nathi

Interesting point. Soeda combined a schedule of easy CH in 2011 (SF Singapur, SF Kyoto, W Pingguo, SF Busan, W Wuhai) and his only descent ATP result was in ATP250 Bangkok (QF). His tactic is clear: earn easy points in weak CH tournaments and play some weak ATP tournaments. He is not the only one that is good for CH level but not good enough to for ATP tournaments level like Berlocq, Cipolla, Sela, Rosol, Mannarino, Ricardo Mello, Berrer, Prodon, Maximo Gonzalez just to name some of them.

I think there should be two tier of CH tournaments with higher points for some CH tournaments and lesser ones for others. The only way to do that would be to have a CH schedule organized before the season starts with a schedule that would make sense (not like the present one). Two tiers of CH tournaments would force certain players like Soeda to play stronger CH and there they would fail to get easy points.

Re: Week 4: Honolulu, Hawaii, USA (Finals)

Just a shame for Sugita who was leading 6-2 and serving 5-6 in the 2nd set to go to the tie break but lost his serve and the set, got easily frustrated and Ginepri took advantage of that to lead 5-1 and to close that 3rd set. This is the 2nd time that something similar happened to Sugita in 2012 when he lost his chances to beat Almagro in Chennai`s QF while leading one set up and 5-4 in the tie break of the 2nd set (I don`t remember now if he had a match point on that tie break) but got easily frustrated after losing that tie break and Almagro took an early advantage of 5-1 in the 3rd (then he almost choked that set too). Wondering if anyone know of other previous similar situations faced by the Japanese player.

Ok, we are your hate because we are on top of you.

I guess you're Mexicos hat.

I don't think they will be amazing or anything, just good for Canada as we haven't had good players in ages. USA's tennis future is looking bleak to say the least.

Re: Week 4: Honolulu, Hawaii, USA (Semifinals)

You shouldn't underestimate Japanese players performances. Having 3 of 4 SF isn't just a matter of luck. Sugita is having a fantastic run and now faces a tought SF clash with Ginepri who achieved two good and easy victories like the ones over Reynolds and Delic.
On the upper side of the draw Soeda arrived to SF with no many troubles while Ito surprised Polansky in 2nd round.

However I must admit that the line up of this tournament is pretty poor.
