Re: Week 45 : Knoxville (Entry List)

I'll be there for the start of qualies on Sunday. UT has a home football game that Saturday, I assume that is why they are starting a day late.

Only two more days until the Knoxville Challenger starts with qualifying on Sunday. Looks like it's going to be a great tournament.

Devin Britton vs Steve Johnson. Battle of NCAA champs. I expect Johnson to roll

Apparently Denys Molchanov got disqualified in his match against Jamie Baker for throwing a racket to the back wall which hit a ball kid. :eek:

Williams and Sandgren both go down in round 1 in their home tournament. Feeling the grind of the ATP tour right about now. The other former VolJP Smith plays today

Re: Week 45 : Knoxville (Entry List)

Can someone tell us about Brian Baker ? Is he a college guy ? Never heard of him before. Thx ;)
I'm sure that you can Google lots of stuff on Brian Baker. Basically he would be a top ten player if not for injuries. He was #2 in juniors at 17 years old, beat Djokovic, Murray, and Monfils in junior Grand Slams (made the final of the French juniors), and beat Gaudio as a US Open WC at 19.

From there he has gone through so many injuries that it is unreal. He will make a comeback out of nowhere, thrash everyone in a few futures or challenger tournaments despite not playing for years, and then get injured again. Many coaches called him the greatest junior talent that they've ever seen.
