Re: Week 20: Busan, Korea [Entry List]

Tough draw for Muller, potential opponents would be Reid, Kudryavtsev, Groth, Ito, Lacko. Reid shouldn't be a problem, but everyone after that (except for maybe Groth) can beat him since he's probably very tired.

Is Lu injured or why didn't he play in Taipei/Gimcheon/Busan after losing in Shenzhen?

Re: Week 20: Busan, Korea [Entry List]

Muller said in his post match interview that he feels extremely tired....im not sure if he is ready to play and win another tournament...i wouldnt be surprised to see him losing in the first or second round this time. he needs a break but at the same time he needs to play to gain direct entry to Wimbledon......:smash:

Kudryavtsev has this random 2-12 h2h against Kravchuk, despite being better in most departments. Even a lot of clear scorelines.

Deadline for Wimbledon is tomorrow's ranking, so it doesn't matter. He should rest for Nottingham to get a WC.

104 players got into the RG main draw, so Muller (#112) doesn't need a lot of drop-outs to participate at Wimbledon. He might not even need a Wildcard.

To get some points. It's not like Muller expected to win three tournaments here, his goal for the whole year was only to get back into the Top 100. He even said in an interview that he doesn't want to rush it. ;) Besides, he can rest for three weeks now, so if he stays healty there should be no fitness problem for the grass season.

Re: Week 20: Busan, Korea [Entry List]

yea well, as Im from Luxembourg myself and as I follow his career for 13 years, I know that of course :) I expect him to rest for a week, then train hard again in order to excell in the UK and then the most important part of the season, the US tour + US open ;)

Re: Week 20: Busan, Korea [Entry List]

Will neuchrist get the 5 points for qualifiying as a LL?
This sentence is not correct, you cannot qualify and be a LL, if you qualify it means you win the final qualy match and will get points, if you lose it means you can only be a lucky loser with no points.
