Not sure why greg is home for this? Seems like strange scheduling from him.

Yeah - it does seem strange, but looking at the Challenger tournaments in the USA not much on there. Not a good Challenger schedule in the USA for the start of this year. He also attended the ATP University in Miami 10 days ago, so that would have affected his travel and tournament schedule. Bad timing that Uni thing.

Jonesie won his 1st round match at a canter, beating Josh Crowe 63, 63. But then was forced to retire in the second round at 2-2, with a problem to his left lower leg. Hope it is not serious

Back to challengers this week. Takes on South African WC Renier Moolman in the first round. Hopefully he is over his injury.

I still cant work out why he would fly all the way home for a small satellite..........but I am very happy to see him in Joberg with a win under his belt already. I hope that Matt E can join him in the last 16 as well.

Jonesie hangs tough and wins a close match against Jan Mertl 76 64. Good to win two in a row at Challenger level, hope he can progress further.
Not sure if 64 or 75 yet.
Comfirmed 76(3) 75

Big win for Jonesie over Gilles Muller 7-5 6-3 in the quarters. Looks to back it up in the semis against De Voest as he leads 6-3 3-4. He must be serving out of this world this week because it's obvious the altitude is playing into his favor. Would be huge for Jonesie to pick up the title this week because he would be ranked just outside the top 200 and have very few points to defend for most of the year. Funnily enough it was his time last year that Jonesie also had his best result of the year in Leon, Mexico. He has entered the Leon challenger in two weeks from now also so hopeful of a strong result there as well.

Jonesie gets to the QF round with a solid three set win over last year's winner of the tournament Korean Yong-Kyu Lim, despite a vocal local crowd, winning 6-4, 6-7, 6-3.

Jonesie takes the 1st set 63 off the the No.1 seed, and world No.55 Yen-Hsun Lu, who had trouble with his high ball toss. Lu fought back though, the wind also affecting the big-serving NSWelshman, and won the 2nd set 61. The 3rd was close, but serving first helped Lu, who at 43 upped the pressure on Jonesie and, on the back of two DF's in the windy condition by Jones, broke to go 5-3 up and then served out the set and the match 63.
One wonders why Lu is not getting clay court time in Europe, playing at the Rome Masters, before the French Open? Must be some reason? Cut was 52, but there were plenty of withdrawals.

Greg back with another big result this week after the semi in Joburg and the quarter in Busan last week. He has made it through to the semifinals of the Fergana challenger in Uzbekistan this week after opting out of French Open qualies (not sure if he would have made the cut anyway). Not with out a struggle though as his three matches so far this week have all gone to three sets with the last two (both played on the same day) went to a third set tiebreaker.

Big effort from big Jonesie and would love to see him make a final here but Yuichi Sugita should be too good for him not to mention he is probably fatigued now as well. Either way it goes the great thing for Greg is that he will now jump up to around 240 in the rankings and will make the cut for Wimbledon qualies which is extremely positive for him. Also being consistent in challengers and making quarters and semis consistently is great as well.

If Greg has entered a challenger next week he will now also receive secured entry and could possibly build on this week into a strong grass season.
