    I was looking through the players list for the Tennis Channel Open in Las Vegas this year, and I noticed a surprising name: Nicolas Escude. Escude hasn't played a match in a year and a half and as far as I knew, retired. Is he trying to make a comeback? Or is this a Sargis Sargisian type, one time thing?

    BTW, the Tennis Channel Open has a ton of great players going out to play, including Roddick, Hewitt, Blake, Ginpepri, Schrichiphan, Monfils, Murray, Haas, Gonzalez, Kiefer, and Verdasco. An impressive draw, and all of this in Las Vegas? Sounds like a dream tourney to me. :D

    He never retired, he's recovering from shoulder surgery like Verkerk and Johansson. I think there may have been another injury in there, let me see if I can find a link with more info for you...

    Escude. I have wondered what happened to him, part of the French brigade. Always a threat, but always plagued by injury and never managed to get high up in the rankings. Glad to see him back...he always provided good tennis.

    I want to, but I don't know how to re-size a photo. I don't have photoshop you see.

    Neither do I. Get Irfanview (www.irfanview.com), it's free and if I can use it, any idiot can use it. Holler if you need help with it. :)
