Well , I might as well update this thread ! He,s now 26 in the last nine months he ,s gone from 462 back up to 243 almost entirely on playing in futures ! Hasent won a "main draw" match at challenger yet during this mini revival ! All futures wins ! Never would of guessed you could get that high lol ! Nothing wrong with that to me thought !
Back to back 15ks in Ireland and Britain have moved him back up to 196 ! Close to the highest he,s ever been . Quite fortunate to get this high ! He should step up and only play Challengers for a while , I know he won,t thought , unless there at home .
yeah. i have heard some things in that direction too. i hope this is not true though
I don't think there is any doubt that he will call it a day unless things improve. Put simply he is 27 years old and needs to make a living, unlike some he can't afford to play Tennis as a hobby. Last year the Wimbledon wild card kept his head above water on the financial front but he surely won't get a wild card this year. His YTD prize money is $4,897 plus another €1,200 to come from Nottingham and Queen's.
maybe he can get a mdwc and play next week too in another british tournament, maybe qualies
if he gets a qwc instead...then i will really pray for him to qualify there. he really need the money and points at this point
i wish him all the best, he is a great guy
