JMG in 2008 (Team Tennis schedule in post #34)
 
Hey everyone
I just had a fairly long chat with JMG and he is healthy, his back and shoulder are okay, and he is coming back!

His first event will be the Miami Challenger beginning on January 14th, on green clay. He was given a wildcard and he was happy to accept it. I'll post the draw on Saturday evening, and let you know if he is able to find a doubles partner.

:yippee:

I'm glad to hear it. I thought he retired, but he is not.
Let's go, JAN-MIKE!!!

Here is the link to the main draw. I'll let you know when I hear back from him about the doubles draw and his match schedule.

Eric Prodon def JMG 6-4, 6-4.

He will play doubles with Alex Bogomolov on Wednesday, last match of the afternoon.

Do you know if he is coming back full-time Fee, or will he gradually try to work his way back into a full schedule?

I don't know what his definite plans are yet. He didn't really know either, he just wanted to see what happened here and then go from there. I haven't spoken to him since he played, but if I get any news from him (which I hope to), I'll put it here. :)

JMG and Alex Bogomolov lost their doubles match today 4-6, 5-7.

I did speak to JMG and he said he was pain free after the match yesterday, just the usual 'soreness'. He would like to play the Waikoloa Challenger, but they have not given him a wildcard yet and he doesn't have any ranking or points to enter it directly. We'll just have to wait and see what happens.

Well, I've been lazy... JMG is playing doubles only in the Waikoloa Challenger in Hawaii (not too far from his house actually). He and his partner Brad Lum-Tucker won their first match yesterday 7-6(2), 6-1. Their next match should be Thursday or Friday.

Lipsky/Martin def JMG/Brad Lum-Tucker 6-4, 7-6.

The Dallas Challenger has given JMG a main draw wildcard and his first match will be Tuesday evening. The tournament website is www.thebraingame.net and they will do regular updates and post videos and such during the tournament. Please stop by their site and take a look. :)

I wish Jan-Michael every success in his comeback. Let's hope to see him in Melbourne this time next year!

We believe in you, Jan-Mike...

Will he be on the ATP tour anytime this year, or is that too far off?

Fee 01-27-2008 12:42 AM

Re: Calling all Finions! Jan-Mike is coming back! The 2008 thread.
 
That's the goal. He will play wherever he can get wildcards until he gets points and a ranking again.
