    Date Krumm beats Stosur...LMAO

    Well, I don't know about Sampras, but we have Thomas Muster trying a comeback now. He's 3 years older than Kimiko, but he is a former #1 and GS champion. He's compiled a 1-6 record so far and is #985 in the rankings: http://www.atpworldtour.com/Tennis/Players/Mu/T/Thomas-Muster.aspx?t=pa

    two tourneys at once

    That rule applies for all level of tournaments, but Surbiton and Queens were not played on the same week of the calendar. Quallies are generally played at the same time as deciding rounds of tournaments from the previous week

    Harder to Achieve? Grand Slam Final or ATP Masters 1000 Title

    And Sebastien Grosjean. Other GS finalist with no Masters 1000 title: Arnaud Clement.

    Gaudio playing BA Challenger

    Gaudio's strikes are intact. His backhand is still great and his forehand has also been very good this week. Really fun to watch. On the down side, he's double faulting and foot faulting a lot. And he's noticeably slower. Zeballos-Gaudio in the final tomorrow.

    Should GS champions be eligible to play at the championships without reaching top 8 ?

    Yes, and that has become redundant with the new points scale. If you win a slam, you get 2000 points and the current #20 player, Tommy Haas, has 1780 points.

    Joachim Johansson has HUGE forehand and serve, altough his backhand is not as powerful as Del Potro's

    US Open Qualifying Tournament

    The original cut was #102, and ended up being #108 after withdrawals. Thomaz was #117 (that was before adding the 250+12 points from Gstaad - you were right, Love Gome, he got those 12 extra points for qualifying for the main draw) ... 100 Cipolla, Flavio ITA 99 101 Odesnik, Wayne USA 100...

    Name miss-pronunciation

    Seems wrong. That would be Rafeiel Nadal or something like that in Spanish.

    How many of the top 100 could you identify?

    89 from the top 100. I wouldn't recognize Sela, Lu, Devilder (although I saw him play against Hartfield), Garcia-Lopez, Phau, Zverev, Minar, Andujar, Reynolds, Granollers and Istomin. In fact, I have just seen a picture of Istomin for the first time.
