It's more of a win-win for me but if it shuts up the gloaters and gloryhunters on GM then that would be fab The newspapers aren't going to be worth reading for a few days no matter how it goes. I'm really hoping for a good match, and as long as he tries his best, I can't ask for more
Surely losing to Verdasco at the AO a few years ago was far worse
He's not actually banned - there was some concern over something about his account - I can't really go into details - it's been suspended at the moment and we're waiting for him to get in touch to resolve it, but so far he hasn't been in contact with us.
Okay I really don't get why he's urgently needing his restrung racquets.
Why on earth didn't he take racquets out with 4 or 5 different tensions all ready to go in case his first pick wasn't suitable for the conditions? It seems like he's playing this first set with a stick that he's not comfortable with.
