RE: Rusedski At Indian Wells


Interesting. The other mysterous thing is that he hasn't w/d from the qualifying Alt list yet. I wonder how this will resolve itself.

Draws are supposed to come out on Wednesday. So maybe it s starts then or Thursday?

(I think! Draws might be Tuesday!)

Not much help really!

If Boggo says Greg is on his way then it can't be for nothing. He must be playing!

I have emailed Sandy from his official fan club / web site to try and bottom this out.

I like watching Greg's game. I am no as nervous as compared with praying for Tim. Only Greg knows himself if he will play Indy.

With Kiefer, Verkerk and Santoro withdrawals today Greg is next alt for qualies and should certainly get in...

Does it mean that if someone withdraws now, Greg will play Q?

Either that or when he got offered the qualifying WC and refused it, he forgot he was on the entry list for qualifying so hasn't officially withdrawn yet but has no intention of turning up.

Just re-read the email which Boggo sent to me and he actually says that he's not totally sure of Greg's plans but he thinks he's playing in Indian Wells.

Draws come out on Tuesday night (small hours of Wednesday GMT) and the qualies start on Wednesday.

I'd be disappointed if he didn't play here  as if he doesn't it looks like he's just going to be leaving himself the Sarajevo challenger to prove his fitness for the DC which is very risky. He could quite easily draw Pless and go out in rd1 there and I'm sure that Lloyd would have liked him to play several tournaments before the tie.

When did you first start watching Tim ? 

When I first started watching Tim in 1999 I'd be barely able to stand watching his matches, they all seemed to be balanced on a knifedge !   The worst-one ever was the Federer quarter-final in 2001. Tim edged the first two sets then got outplayed in the 3rd. He got an early break in the 4th and led 2-0 but from then on, every service game seemed to have multiple break points for Federer and he was firing return winners at will. It was agony to watch, I think I was behind the sofa

Hi!

I turned to a big supporter of him in 2004 but I was amazed him in 2000 when Czech Republic played against GB. You know, his manner, style of play, look,... . So since 2000 I have always prayed for him even against Czech players! Yes, watching his matches is not easy but I have never turned the TV off. You know when he wins I have immediately fantastic mood but even if he loses, he is still class and he always tries his best. I also play tennis and

it's interesting to see that we have almost similar style or his game suits me best. So I'm always watching also his patterns, approaching shots, volleys,... . Of course, he is a much better player but my game and results have improved very quickly. Last year he played unbelievebly well especially at Queen's. Against Delgado and Mahut I wasn't even nervous as he played his best tennis. Typical nerveracking match last year was against Hewitt in Miami. I don't know how many set points he had in the first set, 6 or more on his serve but couldn't take them. The set went to a breathtaking tiebreak and finally Tim got it. Mentally it was totally draining for me.

Yes, definetely. But I'm a big supporter of Tim not Greg.

Do you think it's wrong? Tennis is an individualistic game, it's not like watching football, ice hockey or basketball. Everybody who plays tennis has usually a childhood hero. Tim's childhood hero was Borg first , but then his all time "ideal" was Edberg. His style of play, gentlemanhood, attitude. I think it's not unusual.
