Couldn't agree more,
The thing that really bothers and worries me is Tennis Australia seem to think ATP rankings count fro nothing. Yes Qually who ever they want
but surely players who spend the time and effort getting their own asses around the world to get their points are being highly disrespected in this country.
It seems if some one is not ranked Tennis Australia will get them ranked by W/C gifts if it suits them.
I can not see this country ever having depth again when they do this sort of thing.
It is very deflating to the players who have had to go out and earn their own rankings going through Qually if they need to.
TA state that Kubler has a great attitude and work ethic, well so do a lot of players, and in fact some players might come across as having
a shit house attitude , but that is on " personal judgment ", why must tennis players have a personality Tennis Australia approve of ?
Isn't it ever enough that a player is a good player. earns his own points etc anymore. Must we for ever be in the search or prediction of the next great player and had them it all on silver platters .... If you ask me we will never have player while this goes on.
This is deflating to all players in Australia right now. What must one do to EARN their way ?
I wouldn't be suprised if by next year we have a 15 year old getting the W/ C it seems to be getting more ridiculous each year the past four years.
yeah JFM the " others have a CHANCE to Qually "
Thats weird statement if you ask me !!!
but does that statment make it right , so is Kubler " too good " to have to Qually.
If it is the experience which TA say will be good for him why not make him Qually then he might have the " chance " of more than one match at the AO.
I can not see one good reason why this is good for ANYONE. Other than the prize money which is a huge gift. Or maybe it could help to give Kubler an edge with publicity for the Aus Oepn juniors ?
