Re: Week 44: Charlottesville VA, USA [Entry List]

Main draw is out....tough draw for Donald he'd probably have to play his A game to win this week he plays Levine in R1 then potentially Reynolds then Smyczek/Kendrick then if he got that far Dent/Matosevic. Sweeting and Harrison will play in R1 which is tough to see, would rather them play in a SF or F. Nishikori got a decent draw. Devvarman and Dent should get to the Final IMO, although I would like to see DY against Harrison/Devvarman as well.

Re: Week 44: Charlottesville VA, USA [Entry List]

The photo in the first post is of the pavilion on the downtown mall. No tennis courts there.

The matches will be played on the Boyd Tinsley courts:

It seems I saw the similar message from you a year ago :)
At least I have impression I saw the link and courts picture there last year...
For me, the main thing is the picture above would be connected with Charlottesville, not necessary with courts

I don't think anyone would "connect" a picture of the pavilion on the downtown mall with Charlottesville. [That's like posting a photo of a random strip mall in El Segundo to represent LA.]

If you don't want to post a photo of the tournament site, I would post a photo of an iconic location that actually has some connection w. the city such as the Rotunda & the Lawn or Monticello instead of photo of an obscure locations that most residents couldn't even identify as being located in Charlotttesville.

OK, if you live (or use to be) in Charlottesville you have to know better than me :) I don't remember the history of taking this photo (so many challengers, so many images), usually I take pictures either as result of Google image search, or simply from previous years threads, if Google doesn't suggest good one. I agree to change for any, if you give me the direct link to it :)

Re: Week 44: Charlottesville VA, USA [Entry List]

Are there going to be any live scores posted for this challenger.? The website is totally bogus. Why can't US Challengers get their act together for Basic Scoring?!?!?

I see you found a photo of the street side of the Rotunda. Yey! Big improvement from the original photo.

http://www.virginia.edu/webmap/popPages/80-Rotunda.html
The Rotunda

The Rotunda houses offices and is used for ceremonial occasions. It was designed by Thomas Jefferson as the architectural and academic heart of his community of scholars -- the "academical village," as he called it. Jefferson modeled the Rotunda after the Pantheon in Rome. Construction began in 1822 and was completed in 1826 at a cost of $60,000. Shortly after the Rotunda's completion, many classes were moved from the first floors of the Pavilions into the Rotunda's oval rooms. The Rotunda served as the library for more than a century.

In 1895 the Rotunda was destroyed by fire. Architect Stanford White undertook its reconstruction. In 1938, students and faculty carried the entire library collection to the new Alderman Library building. In 1973, restoration of the Rotunda to Jefferson's original design began. On April 13, 1976, during the U.S. Bicentennial and on the 233rd anniversary of Jefferson's birth, the restored Rotunda was dedicated. Also in that year, the American Institute of Architects recognized the academical village as the most significant achievement of American architecture in the past two hundred years. The Rotunda appears today essentially as it did when it was built.

Are Oudshoorn en Rooda Dutch guys from American College? I don't know anything about them except Oudshoorn played some Dutch Futures last year. Was surprised to see these guys in an US Challenger Qualifier.
