I don't think we need to start a thread for each tournament JMG plays, so perhaps we can just talk about his tournament results here. Hopefully, they will actually be worth talking about for the rest of the year. His next event is the Tunica Challenger beginning on May 2nd. :D

Good idea, Fee. I think the fact that JMG is playing Tunica is basically confirmation that he won't be in Paris :sad: I will miss him, but hopefully see him at Surbiton. I guess he'll stay in the States the week after Tunica and play Forest Hills, NY as well.

I don't follow your logic Drew. He plays Tunica on May 2nd, Forest Hills on the 9th (both of those have Saturday finals), so he could still play RG qualies on the 16th if he wants to (James Blake is scheduled to do just that). He's back home in Spokane now, so I hope to catch him and get an update soon.

:) My logic was not timing, it was that he's staying in the States, his home country, playing on green clay challengers-then he's got to play on European clay, in European conditions. I would've thought he'd get here as early as possible, play singles and doubles just to adapt. I'm still :sad: though because he will have to win 3 matches on clay for me to see him in RG...

I see what you mean now Drew. I suppose he could have played some of the European Challengers, but if he doubts his ability on clay then it's just as well to stay closer to home and work on the clay here. Green clay is a faster surface, but you still have to slide when you play on it, so he will get some practice with the footwork. Personally, a part of me hopes he skips RG and prepares for grass instead. He has points to defend in England, and he may have to qualify for Wimbledon (eek).

And skip clay he did! His next event will be the Surbiton Challenger (grass). The entry list is in the Challenger forum and Drew will be there to report back to us EVERY NIGHT (right, little soldier?)

This forum is so under-used :sad: I know Jan-Mike isn't playing at the moment, but I hope it can get up and running again soon.

Jan-Mike decided not to play the Queen's qualies, so his next tournament is the Liverpool International June 8 - 12. He is guaranteed 3 matches there and I think he's also scheduled to play a mixed doubles exhibition with Martina Navratilova. The website is www.liverpooltennis.co.uk. After that he has the W. qualies beginning on Monday, June 13th. The draw will be made on Sunday evening.
