Re: Week 43: Rimouski, Canada

I live there and I can't wait! Nice to see Fred here for the 1st time (and who knows how long is gonna play) and Peter, Philip. And it's nice that Pokrajac got a wildcard. Don't know anything about him besides his name so it's going to be interesting to get to know a new player.
The organizers said last year that we'll get new seats and I hope they will keep their word. My butt took days to recover last year. :lol:

So Porkrajac and Bester are the first two wildcards.

They should give one to Duclos but they probably wont, I dunno why. And maybe to Vasek?

I read in a newspaper that Duclos is not coming. He said he wasn't coming back to America for only one tournament.

That's right I think. He's supposed to be going to Korea to play the challengers there.

Re: Week 43: Rimouski, Canada

Why Vasek :confused:
Why not Vasek. Especially with Duclos not coming. Berard doesnt have any real potnetial, Chvokja could get one no doubt but the rest of the ranked Canadians cant even qualify for a futures event. Vasek just started playing in qualifiers regularly and he could use some help and experience.

By the way, whats going on with Steckley, is he retired?

I was not implying that the WC should go to a Canadian player, I was simply asking what I think is a legitimate question

No point in helping the Americans, they dont help Peter :p

Obviously if they can get a topish play than sure, but there is no point in giving it to a Phillip Simmonds type of player like they did in Vancouver

Of course, no WC should be given to an American player :eek: considering the number of Challengers played in the US. :cool:

Why not give a WC to an European player who has not entered the tournament :confused:
