Re: Qd

Hope Milos qualifies, he should be able to beat Ito when he's playing his best:)

Peter is playing Bangkok qualies which has better players in it, so it would probably have been wise for him to play here, but his draw in Bangkok isn't too bad either

QUALIFYING DRAW

[1] Igor ANDREEV (RUS) has a Bye
Christopher RUNGKAT (INA) has a Bye
[WC] Nazim Khan MAHMOOD KHAN (MAL) has a Bye
[8] Woong-Sun JUN (KOR) has a Bye

[2] Tatsuma ITO (JPN) has a Bye
Ross HUTCHINS (GBR) has a Bye
Scott LIPSKY (USA) vs Travis PARROTT (USA)
[5] Milos RAONIC (CAN) has a Bye

[3] Laurent RECOUDERC (FRA) has a Bye
[WC] Ariez Elyaas DEEN HESHAAM (MAS) has a Bye
Johan BRUNSTROM (SWE) has a Bye
[7] Joseph SIRIANNI (AUS) has a Bye

[4] Santiago GONZALEZ (MEX) has a Bye
[WC] Philip DAVYDENKO (RUS) has a Bye
Frantisek CERMAK (CZE) has a Bye
[6] Nick LINDAHL (AUS) has a Bye

As in 2009, the qualifying draw is very weak. Why so? Why the MO organizers couldn't attract more stronger players in sufficient quantity? The tournament prize money is greater than in Bangkok in 1,5 times, however the qualifying field isn't...

That´s simply to explain, Jacques. In Bangkok there were those two challengers. So most of the guys playing those two CHs might say "Why not playing qualifying? If I lost there, I could travel home on Monday, too, just if I played the CH final" Of course they don´t have to fly to another country so it´s logical I think.

The 2 Malaysian players are juniors as well :) would be nice if they manage to win a couple of matches, but they're much less experienced than the rest of the qualifying draw.

Davydenko Junior? Funny.
Yes, his name is Phillip. He's Edvard's son.
Edvard is the brother of Nikolay.

This joung boy was often in the box of his uncle Niko, with his father and Irina.

He's a fine boy, tall, with a mess of dark blond hair. :worship:

Not like is uncle!!:eek::eek::p:p

Nikolay, when he was a boy "had".....very thin light blond hair!

and now?:confused::confused:
