Re: Week 16 : Sarasota (Entry List)

It's a good list but a weird one, given the difference in quality of clay ability, given a lot of these guys are former ATP players trying to get back to their previous level. I think Sweeting, Dancevic and Bjorn will have good results. Some of the traditional clay-courters could be hard to beat, like Prodon, Zeballos and RRH. If Tommy plays well, he's the best player, and green clay should suit him well, plus he's motivated to be top 100 again. This is the final week before RG cutoff so there will be a lot of anxiety here and guys will have a lot on the line.

44% of service points won for Zverev, but who knows if he's actually 100% after retiring from his last two events with fatigue.
