Hello all

Like the last four years, I will be covering the Wimbledon qualifying tournament this week at Roehampton, interviewing players for the Radio Wimbledon daily podcast that is available for free download from the official Wimbledon website.

I would like to make the podcast more interactive this time around ... with questions from fans! :)

Obviously, I won't be able to interview every match winner at qualifying - just a few of them each day ... but if there is a player you see on the qualifying order of play who you would like to ask a question (it can be on any topic) I will try to ask it for you and include it in the official Radio Wimbledon podcast!

http://www.wimbledon.org/en_GB/scores/schedule/index.html

Qualifying starts this Monday 14 June. Day 1 looks a cracking line-up ... e.g. Dancevic v Mahut, Harrison v Berankis, plus plenty of Brits in action too! So for anyone you see listed, ask away! Please submit your player questions either via this forum thread or if you are on twitter, to my address there: @guy_mccrea

Cheers
G

Interviews with Ricardas Berankis, Josh Goodall, Nicolas Mahut and others from day one of Wimbledon qualifying at Roehampton will be in Monday's Radio Wimbledon podcast - available later for free download from wimbledon.org

Need more questions though - slightly surprised we aren't getting more of them from you guys here on the mens tennis forum - please have a look at the order of play
http://www.wimbledon.org/en_GB/scores/schedule/index.html
and ask away! Post them on this thread or on twitter: guy_mccrea

Ladies qualies start tomorrow, lots of men's quali matches already completed today.

Thanks
G

I have some questions!

1) What's up with Kuznetsov getting a main draw wildcard?
2) Does Alex Bogdanovic have a lot of fans cheering for him in qualies and do you think he can make the MD? If he does, how dangerous can he be?

Can you ask Peter Polansky why he warmed up for Wimbledon playing on everything except grass?

Can't you answer #1 yourself with some common sense? Kuznetsov won the boys' title last year.

Hi Ozone: Yes, Kuznetsov gets a Wimby MD wildcard because he won the boy's title last year. AELTC tradition! Re: 2) Can you suggest questions to ask players, not me?! Boggo got a lot of support yesterday and will later on but can't see him getting past Mahut - who made Dancevic look pretty ordinary in 1QR yesterday!

Hi all: Most of Tuesday's podcast is done now - interviews with Kanepi and Erakovic some of today's highlights! But time permitting, I'm also looking to stick around today for Devvarman v DeHeart which has the potential to be good. Please suggest questions for either man - here or to my twitter: @guy_mccrea

Cheers
G

@156mph serve: Sorry didn't get chance to talk to Polansky after his loss so couldn't ask your question - thanks for offering it though and if you have any others let me know and I will try and make amends!

Also, to all: Radio Wimbledon Day 2 podcast is now available to download from wimbledon.org :

http://www.wimbledon.org/en_GB/news/blogs/2010-06-15/201006151276637940126.html

Keep firing those questions in everyone - here or more directly on twitter: @guy_mccrea

On Wednesday, I am intending to follow Tomic v ERV, Kendrick v Ouanna, also Dent, Mannarino, and Levine matches for the Wed podcast. So forum readers if you have questions for those guys, please ask away ASAP!

Thanks
G

Can you please ask Ilija Bozoljac why is he always avoiding to play Qualifications of Serbia Open and is playing Qualies for every other tournament?

Thanks.

Could you ask Edouard Roger-Vasselin why he often does well in Roehampton? What he thinks of the venue? And whether he is still going to Paul's bakery? :lol:

I didn't follow that and their are many Kuznetsov's. I thought the WC was given to the older one. I guess I'll stop asking questions.

Can you ask Gilles Muller what he thinks now of his state after beating Nadal at Wimbledon: "Nadal will probably never win Wimbledon"....lol
and can you ask him why he doesnt play Newport as his PR would allow him to play in the MD directly
thanks

FYI: Radio Wimbledon Day 3 podcast is now available to download from wimbledon.org :

http://www.wimbledon.org/en_GB/news/blogs/2010-06-16/201006161276723331188.html

Interviews with Dent, Tomic, Niculescu and Whybourn.


Thursday is the all-important final day of qualifying! So everyone please let me know your questions - here or more directly to my twitter: @guy_mccrea

Obviously all matches are important and so podcast plans can change - but on the men's side provisionally these are ones I will look to speak to the winners from:

Sweeting v Kendrick, Tomic v Armitraj, DeHeart v Bozoljac, Muller v Ball

But I say again, if you have other players on the schedule you have questions for please still send them, as they may still get in!

Thanks
G

Can you please ask Bozoljac that question(on previous page)?

And also one more question: Does he care more about his outfit and how he looks on court or about his tennis?

Thanks :D

Thanks! His match with deheart is one I will be following, so if he wins I will definitely ask your questions!

Re: his outfit - I will try to avoid being punched in the face when I ask that one :D
