No idea, even Aaron didn't seem to know a lot about him.

Local WC, what is the point really if he's going to get battered every match.

that's some truly horrendous oversight. I'd expect something like this from other OP-ers, but you?

oh good, even aaron doesn't know. other than getting two or three 1st round challenger wins over top200 players (3 wins in Todi It) he hasn't done anything, except being from USA
no Jr GS appearances nothing. he did drop 300 places this year maybe that warranted a wildcard

looking forward to see this prodigy play

Report nofx November 5, 2018 1:45 PM GMT
we've seen some questionable wc's over the years, and obviously haven't seen him play, but at least there were some excuses to hand them out. junior ranking or plain swap with other countries you know

on the surface nothing really warrants one here. he's 20 maybe he was injured a lot, otherwise it just seems dodgy. like his parents bought him one


this doesn't happen to be that kid that convinced everyone sports journo that he was the next big thing, but under a new alias Tongue Out

I don't get the WC to this event really. I mean idea is to appeal to locals I assume, but even locals surely haven't heard of this guy, so what's the point, and he's likely well out of his depth too, making it all a bit pointless.
Report nofx November 5, 2018 2:05 PM GMT
doubt he's the most talented Italian under 21. something's fishy

so it looks like Czechs will go off around 1.27 here. Those Czechia backs when news leaked on the US team were for sure very shrewd because even with Czechia's top 2 out (Petra could be back for tomorrow) that's a drop from 1.60+ to 1,27. Would have obviously been much lower with them playing.

Petra will be back tomorrow supposedly.
Report n88uk November 10, 2018 1:35 PM GMT
I guess score might play a part. If it's 2-0 Czechs there's much less onus on Petra to come back.
Report caramba November 10, 2018 1:45 PM GMT
with Petra's fitness history, it's a gamble to play her at all. But less so indoors obviously and on a fast surface.
Report caramba November 10, 2018 1:57 PM GMT
does Vera's Limoges result count towards her ranking for Australian Open? (basically, is there still a chance for her to get direct entry there?)
