Re: It's nice to have you Carsten.
Unfortunately with the venue switch to Nottingham I don't think it would be possible for him to do what Tsonga did a few years ago. Google says it takes 3 hours by car from Nottingham to London whereas Surbiton was located in London.
I'm interested to see how Ball goes on grass. His junior results on it weren't impressive but it is pretty hard to get a good read off only a handful of results (especially with an erratic player like Carsten). His kick serve is likely to be nullified to some effect on the grass although the rest of his game should be ok and his serve will still be a major weapon.
