He got five points, but the ATP enters points for Futures on the second Monday after the tournament, not the first. He will get his points and go on the Rankings next week. That's probably some agreement that they have with the ITF to verify all of the results or something.

Pretty sure his wildcard for Sacto is for the main draw, he didn't seem to be in any hurry to get up there by Friday for qualies.

Jan-Michael got a doubles wildcard for Laguna Niguel, so he ended up going down there anyway. He should be playing right about now if they are on schedule (which I doubt). If he wins today, I might head down there tomorrow for his next match.

Article in the Sacramento paper (I knew Paul would write about him)

Comeback 'kids' play in Natomas tennis tourney
pbauman@sacbee.com
Published Monday, Oct. 05, 2009

They're a combined 67 years old with 512 singles match victories at the top level of professional tennis and $8.6 million in prize money.

Both have cracked the top 20 in the world and reached the singles quarterfinals in a Grand Slam tournament.

Both have beaten Andre Agassi twice, Pete Sampras once and Roger Federer once.

And both are trying to bounce back from injuries and return to the elite ATP World Tour.

Americans Vince Spadea, 35, and Jan-Michael Gambill, 32, will play singles and team in doubles in this week's Natomas/USTA $50,000 Men's Professional Tournament at the Natomas Racquet Club.

Spadea, the second-oldest singles player in men's pro tennis behind 36-year-old Frenchman Fabrice Santoro, has been plagued by shin splints, foot tissue inflammation, bursitis in his right (playing) forearm and back problems. Ranked a career-high No. 18 in the world in 2005, he has tumbled to No. 191.

"This is my third comeback," said the philosophical Spadea, who will face Ukrainian-born American Alex Kuznetsov in the first round about 7 tonight. "It's sort of fun to challenge yourself all the time.

"I think life is about waking up in the morning and looking forward to an aspiration, an ambition that you set out for yourself. I think we're happiest when we're working toward that goal."

Gambill, meanwhile, has missed most of the past four years with severe tendinitis in both shins and his right (playing) arm. He is unranked after reaching No. 14 in 2001.

"My goal is to have a good time on the court, to have fun with my tennis," said Gambill, who will open against seventh-seeded Ryan Sweeting of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., on Tuesday. "Being injured for four years, basically, has been a drag. It's been very hard on me mentally and (physically)."

Spadea isn't sure how long he'll continue playing.

"When it's time to move on, I'll know it," he said. "I still have a zest for competing."

Gambill, who uses two hands on both sides and is named after actor Jan-Michael Vincent, hopes to play for three more years.

"I'll be happy if I'm able to end on my terms, not my body breaking down," he said.

In Doubles Odesnik and Witten withdrew, so Jan Mike and Vince played Bakalov and Stebe and won 6-1 6-4!
Jan Mike plays Witten in singles and Levine\Sweeting in doubles next

Unfortunately JMG lost really close matches both in singles and doubles! But giving a fight to Witten is a good sign! Witten reached R3 at USO, taking a set from Djokovic and now reached semis beating top seed Kendrick!
Next week, Jan Mike is playing Royal Bank Of Scotland CH due to WC!
R1 vs Go Soeda (JPN)

Oh yeah, I almost forgot. I had to be in Sacramento on Friday, so I saw JMG. His doubles match was delayed a bit by all the long matches. He told me that he played pretty well in the Witten match, he just didn't serve very well and kept getting broken at the wrong times. He didn't think he was going to get the Tiburon wildcard, but he got a call from the TD late Thursday (I think he said) and he accepted it. Calabasas is up in the air right now, so he'll just focus on Tiburon. He probably will not play doubles this week.

Jan-Michael is playing an exo event (or a 'prize money event') in Vegas this week with Witten, Wilson, Yani, and a few others. The website is http://www.elitetennisseries.com/index.php but there isn't much info there. He's fighting a cold so I'm not sure how well he will play here. He's probably on court right about now, I'll try to get results later today.
