ATP/WTA Tour - The Other Players

Quote

Because Ferrer has often shyed away from stronger field events to pick up easy ranking points, hence the vulture tag.


That is so true.  I see that virtually no other players of substance will be at Valencia!  Saves his 500 points perhaps? Basel should be interesting with most of those with a chance to get to O2 there.

Don't think so - maybe you're thinking of Ivanovic and Adam Scott.

Maybe you're right. I can't really remember. Think

Well he does part-own the Valencia tournament - Basel isn't an option for him. Looking at the field that Basel has attracted, I presume they must be paying higher appearance fees to the top seeds. It's certainly why Nadal is there - Juan Carlos Ferrero had wanted to get him to play in Valencia. I bet the Spanish fans are a bit disappointed with that decision.

Re. the Wozniacki/McIlroy split news - it looks like that's just a rumour. Wozniacki denied it in the Danish press this morning.

Thanks for posting this Nigel. I'm not really interested in Wozniacki's love life, but after I read the article I scrolled down further to where there were some videos and found one is supposedly banned and titled something like 'The 'real' state of Britain', which I watched! I found it quite frightening! If you watched it, I'd be interested in hearing your take on it!

Definitely - newspapers are never wrong. Wink Tbh I'm surprised the broadsheets have bothered with this story. Though I wouldn't be surprised to see Caro/Rory break up soon anyway - no smoke without fire usually...

Wild card Karen Katchanov (WR 808)  beats Tipsy in Moscow 6-4 6-4. 

Katchanov beat Ramos (WR 72) in R1.

Aged 17, and 6'6" this seems to be his 2nd tournament - before this played St Petersburg where he beat Hanescu 7-6 7-6 then lost to Rosol 4-6 4-6.

Never heard of him myself - has he been successful in juniors?

Katchanov is the Russian Karlovic. I've seen him at some Challenger event a few years ago, the name of the event escapes me, but he is massive.

Janowicz won his match today 6-2 6-1.

He had 53% first serve percentage and 5 aces, but 28 winners.

And people say he is all serve? Ha.

It was an excellent comeback match. Hope he wins Stockholm.

According to his ATP profile he played one Futures match in 2012, but that's all until St Petersburg in Sept this year.

I see he was seeded 12th in US juniors but went out in 2nd round, also went out 2nd round at Wimbledon.

ATP report just says this: Former champion Janko Tipsarevic was beaten on Wednesday in the Kremlin Cup by Bank of Moscow.
Wild card Karen Khachanov, 17, defeated the third seed and 2011 titlist 6-4, 6-4 in 77 minutes to become the youngest quarter-finalist of the season. In July, he won the European Junior Championships in Switzerland.
