And giver the form this Wimbly who knows what could happen
Is it raining in Rochester? Scores very slow to come in
Leonard's brother made a big splash today.
Most Futures tournament directors update the scores at the end of the day, all at once. No updates scattered throughout the day.
Also, for some reason, they scheduled tons of doubles for Tuesday and only two singles matches. That is why the singles draw has such sparse results.
Ray Sarmiento's been in the Netherlands for the past 3 weeks playing Futures. He's come thru qualies each time, and for the 3rd week in a row, he's playing the same guy, Thomas Schoorel. 1st two times, it was 2nd rd. This week it's the 1st.
sounds like a cruel joke
Good first round wins in Ecuador Challenger for SC boys Gomez and Quiroz and S Johnson winning his first in US Challenger.
I wonder if Stuttgart ATP event would consider giving a wildcard to the Maden brothers doubles team into qualies. (they are from Stuttgart)
Qualifying events for doubles are rare. Does Stutgart have doubles qualifying?
A WC into the main draw for them does not seem like a stretch to me.
As fans of college tennis I think we can all be pretty proud of the results this week in pro events around the globe. The college guys former/current and future did pretty well.

he lost in the finals of f17 to Jarmere Jenkins UVA vs UVA
Salisbury (MEM)/Georgia Coupland (Miss St) move into the finals in Britain F13 with an impressive win over Liam Broady/Joshua Ward-Hibbert.
Hit that draw link and notice that there is another USA player (17 year old) making it through at the bottom of the qualifying as well. In dominating fashion no less. Lost to ATP 337 in MD.
That player also quallied at Spain F20 the week before and lost in 3+ hrs to ATP 450ish in main draw.
I see he is from Santa Barbara just like you. You know much about him?
I think that he's his father if I remember correctly from the Junior Tennis forum days
I think it's just a matter of time before that 17 yr old breaks through and
starts getting some points. Looks like all the years of hard work, training
and is paying off. What would the scores be if the father played the son these
Just like one of my own, even though i met him at 5yo. Know just about all there is to know.
PS, i lived in Hendersonville 77-80.
Actually no, I'm the massage therapist.
Yes its pending. In Spain f20 he beat 16 yo russian 1&4 in first round of qualls. That kid made quarters in singles and won dubs in f21.
Well lets see, a 40+ self taught 5.0 vs atp 500ish level = 1 or 2 games if completely zoning. But it sure is fun.
He has snatched the pebble from my hand.
Only an insecure man would wish for his son to never be able to snatch
Emilio Gomez is into the final round of qualies at the ATP 250 in Bogota.
Blaz Rola drew the #1 seed Dudi Sela in the Turkey Challenger.
Tim Kopinksi (ILL), Andrew Korinek (LSU), Nick Papac (Oklahoma), Sean Weber (NCST), and Brian Page (ILL) all came through qualies at the Joplin Future. Cliff Marsland (Tulsa) will face Dylan McCloskey (VCU) for the last spot. Korinek beat Chris Haworth (Okla St) in the final round, Weber beat Quentin Monaghan (Notre Dame) in the final round. Several other college guys were entered as well.
Main draw has a slew of current and recent college players in it.
Why, oh, why did Alexios Halebian turn pro? Whoever was advising him have him some very poor advice.
It appears that Rola caught a break, the #1 seed Sela, withdrew and was replaced by a lucky loser from the qualifying bracket.
Gomez qualified for the Bogota 250 event. And he got the best possible 1st round draw he could.
If Gomez wins today he'll jump at least 100 spots in the rankings and will move up into the low 400s
Tennessee Vol teammates to-be Mikelis Libietis and Markus Kerner faced each other in the 1st round of an Estonia future. Libietis won 1 & 2.
Illini teammates Jared Hiltzik and Tim Kopinski met in the 1st round in Joplin with Hiltzik winning a 3-setter 7-5 4-6 6-3
Florida Gator Luke Johnson won his 1st round match 4-1 ret. over in Great Britain. Drake teammates Robin Goodman and Ben Lott both lost in the 1st round as did Memphis's Joe Salisbury.
Auburn's Joseph Van Dooren won his 1st round match over in Belgium
UCLA's Adrien Puget won his 1st round match in France
Cal's Mads Engsted won his 1st round match in Denmark while Ben McLachlan got routed. UNC's Esben Hess-Olesen won 0 & 3 while brother and Texas Horn Soren lost 0 & 2.
I am surprised more Americans dont try British futures, seems a good fit.
Rola lost 7-6 in the 3rd to a guy ranked a few spots lower than him.
Kinda shows how poor college tennis is when some of the top guys are getting blasted by career do nothing futures players.
@vicious vik, I think it's quite irrational to come on here and make the statement you just made considering all of the really strong results ex- and current players have had in the last year and are having this summer. Just this week Emilio Gomez qualified and won a round in an ATP tournament, Cunha just won a futures last week and on the women's side Nicole Gibbs is having some great results. Those are just to name a few.
Steve Johnson is on fire. He is the #1 male player right now in WTT leagues. This is Big. this league is tough, has guys like John McEnroe, mark Phillipousis, Robert Kendrick, marty fish, and Bob Bryan.
Is Kosakowski hurt? I saw that he hasn't played a tournament in a few months.
you're an idiot
Good argument pal.
what does it say when a top college player gets beat 6-0 6-2 by a guy ranked 630 on the world?
he turned pro at 16 ... he would have a good fit for USC...
Mitchell Frank vs. Nathan Pasha in the Atlanta ATP 250 Qualifying draw. Nebraska's Eric Sock and Georgia Tech's Nathan Rakitt also in qualies.
Kentucky's Anthony Rossi, Alejandro Gomez, and Beck Pennington all in the Lexington Challenger Qualifying draw along with current Buckeye Hunter Callahan and ex-Buckeye Connor Smith and Chase Buchanan. UCLA's Dennis Novikov and Duke's Michael Redlicki also in qualies.
Lots of Illinois guys (Hiltzik,Jesse,Page,Childers) in the Godfrey IL Future Qualifying draw. Blake Bazarnik, formerly of Vandy, also surfaced and won his 1st round match - maybe he'll end up on the Illini roster this year. Also in the draw UNC's Brett Clark, Ronnie Schneider, and Charles Depaolo, Texas A&M's Jeremy Efferding, Harrison Adams, and Shane Vinsant, Wake Forest's Adam Lee, Morgan Mays, and Jon Ho, Oklahoma's Dane Webb, Notre Dame's Quentin Monaghan, NC State's Sean Weber and Robbie Mudge, Alabama's Becker O'Shaughnessey and Danill Proskura, Santa Clara's John Lamble, LSU's Andrew Korinek, VCU's Dylan McCloskey, and Oregon's Joey Swaysland. Probably a few other college guys in there too that I glanced over.
taking one match and not the average just proves you have an agenda
more then anything it shows how strong all the pros are even at the 600 range.
one bad day or small injury and you can lose to anyone, as its very competitive in the mens
Just noticed that 3/4 semi finalists and 5/8 quarter finalists at the Binghamton challenger played college tennis. I'd say those are some strong percentages. What say you vicious vik?
Pasha takes the 1st set over Frank 6-3 but Mitchell up 4-2 in the 2nd
Frank takes the 2nd set 6-2 and leads 1-0 in the 3rd
This could be an awesome semi. and you can watch all the action LIVE in HD.
Frank takes it 6-4 in the 3rd
If those two guys(Sock and Rakitt) do ok then it will really show how good college tennis is. Because they are both very average college players with Rakitt being a little bit better.
