Memphis US National Indoor Championships
 
Is this the first year it hosts both the ladies and the men? I think it might be.
Quisner, Haas, Dolgo, Nishikori, Tuna Meltzer . .

And Bogie made it through qualies, so Bogie's Big Adventure continues for one more ATP tournament before it's back to feeding balls from a shopping cart . . . Just kidding, we love you Bogo Jr.

I hope Raonic takes it this year as he's been in the final the past two years. He deserves to a win a 500 at this point.

It has been a joint event before, good draw.

JLyon 02-18-2013 12:25 PM

enjoy as this is the last year as a 500 pt event

What will it be next year? 250?

Ryan Harrison trying to get into a 3rd set. Down a set but up 4-2 in the 2nd set TB against Kubot.

Yes it'll be a 250. Rio is getting the 500 event.

So how does that work? Someone wins 500 points this year, but how do they make it up next?

Fixed doubles match as Blake and sock advance to the next round.

There's nothing to make up. Points are relative to the field, and there's less points available for everyone. Each player maps out their annual scheduling to best suit their needs. Shifting up or down a couple of positions here and there as the season progresses through the calendar is expected. Only the top few are likely to be stressed about a small shift.

I'm thinking maybe Cilic here, if he can come through Dodig, which is currently in a third set! Would love to see Istomin go deep, love his game.

Here's the draw.

My man Bogie gets a pretty good draw - LL Russell in the first round and then Kubot in the second. Enough to put some more gas in the tank (I am fascinated by somebody who's gotten so much out of so little talent).

Did Mirnyi/Nestor break up? I see that Nestor is with Kubot and Mirnyi with Tecau.

Nestor's partner for the year is Mahesh for the majors.

I am so happy seeing Memphis become a 250. Year after year it has been a hunting ground for the medium level players to rack up 500 points without playing top 10 talent.

If the 500's cannot get 2 top 10 players, then they should be relegated to 250 automatically.

Nostradamus 02-18-2013 07:12 PM

who has the LIVE streaming of this event ?

Disagree. Hamburg pulls maybe one top 10 player at best same goes for Acapulco. Memphis has had two bad years, but in 2011 it pulled two top tenners (Roddick and Verdasco) same for 2010. 2009 it had 2 with Roddick and Del Potro. 2008 it had possibly 2 don't know Blake's exact ranking at the time. 2007 It pulled 2 as well Roddick and Haas. I mean yea it's had some weak draws, but I think it's same level as the Mexican Open. If it wasn't for the participation of Nadal in it this year it would be seen the same way as it has been. It's obvious Ferrer has only started playing there to get a free 500 points. I don't see the Rio event being any more popular and I sure as hell hope it isn't another clay 500.

On the WTA side...another chance for Watson to get a title here I think, and always interested to see what Coco can do. She's had a shocking start to 2013, but beating Scheepers in R1 was a good result.

GRANITECHIEF 02-19-2013 03:11 PM

Good job by Sam Q to put out the Falla. Much easier than last weeks 7-5 in the 3rd squeaker.

Marius_Hancu 02-19-2013 04:39 PM

Memphis:

Wednesday 7:00pm Mike and Bob Bryan, #1 Doubles Team in the World, in an ATP doubles match followed by Milos Raonic, #13 Player in the World, in a featured ATP singles match
