Bugger! So close

But hey! he's top 100 and and and we'll have 3 men in the main draw on DIRECT ENTRY RANKING Very Happy at the US Open Wink



We may have 4 as Kyle will be quite high up as an alternate (not sure how high up) and there will be bound to be a few withdrawals.

That's been a long time coming, but so good to see and so so deserved for Wardy - direct entry to the US Open Wink

James has lost to Berrer in Bogota and will drop out of the top 100.

Still gets into the US open though as he was 89 when the rankings "closed" :p he'll be back up there soon Berrer is one of those "servers"

Which is why it's huge that he got in when he did. He has a huge stack of points coming off in the coming weeks and will probably drop back down to the mid 100s, but at least the 'breaking the top 100' pressure is off and he won't have much to defend for almost all of early 2016, so hopefully he can now regroup and try and get back to that level of consistency he showed in late 2014.

Wardy is in the main draw of WS Open - I believe he was on the list as an ALT but he has got in the MD field

We'll have 2 Brits to cheer on here as Aljaz is also in the MD - it may "only" be a 250 but I'm pleased that Wardy is aiming for the main tour and not still floating around the challengers - he may lose early-ish but at least he is trying

That looks like a hell of a match! I kept looking at livescore, Wardy broke early, got broken back kept holding and made the first set into a breaker, which was also damn close
Set 2 was only one break of serve (effectively) 4-6 (breaks exchanged looking at the stats)
Set 3 was down to (at least according to the stats) the points on 2nd serve
