Bester once again into the finals of a Futures event! Could it be possible to have 5 players make the AO Qualies? I think it might be a far stretch for Vasek and Philip and I think Frank has to win a few if he wants to be comfortably in.
So Nguyen is the only Canadian playing in the Yucatan World Cup. Peliwo I guess is resting up for Eddie Herr and the Orange Bowl. Nguyen will probably play 5th seed Bourgue in the second round, but from what I've seen Bourgue's ranking is way too high, after he got embarrassed by a bunch of no names in the Junior Davis Cup. But we'll see what happens.
Frank really has the best possible draw in Helsinki. Getting by Dupuis should be a no-brainer. After that, Bolelli hasnt exactly been playing top tennis of late, and Kunitsyn is erratic enough that a solid Frank should win that. I'm looking for him to finish the season strong there
When's the last time Erik lost to a player with a ranking lower than him?
Phillip Simmonds (career high 219)
Ervilng Tvait (career high 484)
Those are the two players ranked lower than him that have beaten him this year and one of them, Simmonds is coming off an injury
Well his ranking is low, but that's only because he's just stopped playing juniors. He's got potential to do a lot better than Chvojka. Chvojka very well may win this match, I'm just saying it won't be as easy as you think.
