Default Re: Phil Bester

just curious, when did Bester play last? Would he be eligible for a PR(need 6 months off I think) and would he be eligible for it to use in AO qualies(if he wanted to go, and would it even be good enough to get in), and what would that PR be?

Well it depends if Davis Cup counts, if it does then it's July 8. If it doesn't then it's June 27. Either way, I'm not sure it's worth his time or money to have his first tournament back to be a Grand Slam event. His protected ranking would be about 245.

ok July 8 + 6 months is January 8, so he would be eligible for one for the AO is he wanted to go, and 245 would likely get him in.

I know it wouldn't make much sense, to travel all the way down there likely to lose quickly as it's his first tournament back, but I was curious if that was even an option, thanks

Default Re: Phil Bester

Looking through the entry lists (ATP/ITF) for January, Bester isn't listed anywhere so it looks like he is still recovering/training. One good point about this is he now qualifies for a protected ranking of about 250-260 when he returns.

Unfortunately Bester now has a problem with his ankle:

Really tough for him.

That is unfortunate although nice to see he has a tentative return date of mid February (with a protected ranking). That's just a month away.

Good to see that he's back. His last match was a long time ago, so maybe rusty.

He gets Wolmarans R1 in Rimouski

And it's great he received a WC so he doesn't have to waste one of his protected rankings.

Unfortunately Phil has retired 3 games into his comeback match. Apparently he retired because of the flu.

Bad luck, but good to hear its the flu, when I saw he retired, I thought it might have been another injury or a recurrence of one of his recent ones.

See Bester is on the entry list for the USA F11 that starts April 30 (Vero Beach - http://www.itftennis.com/procircuit/...tid=1100026124). Here's to hoping he's good to go and in decent playing form, can win a couple of matches at least.
