To avoid questions about picture. It's the oldest pub in England. I was there ... and of course drinking :)

kinda surprised Dancevic isn't here, he;s playing Arad instead, which is on clay. Which is...an interesting choice to say the least.

Estrella testing the grass. Awesome decision in stead of vulturing some points on clay.

Re: Week 23: Nottingham 1, UK [Entry List]

Is the Nottingham Challenger listed in Week 24 a different tournament (Nottingham II)? Same location, same prize money, many of the same players?

These two challengers are parts of so called The Nottingham Festival of Tennis:
1. The 2014 Aegon Trophy, the first of the pre-Wimbledon grass court tournaments (challenger on week 23)
2. The 2014 Aegon Nottingham Challenge, the second week of the Nottingham Festival of Tennis (challenger on week 24)
+ 3. Wheelchair tournament British Open (July 16-21)

I don't think he's good enough to vulture anywhere, but, yes, it's great to see he is taking the grass season seriously.

He would be seeded 3rd in Arad for example. Would be a good chance for at least the QF. I had expected this.

Sure he'd be a high seed, but he would not be expected to cruise :shrug: It's not like Benneteau in Bordeaux or Lu in Asian Challengers.

Risky and questionable Choice...but above all, GREAT CHOICE!
