Has Wayne Arthers withdrawn from Newport.?

Postby CrazyDiamond » Tue Jul 06, 2004 9:06 am

It looks as though he's withdrawn on the ATP website Draw Sheet,but I see Steves Draw still shows him in the Draw.

Just wondering because my nephew Glenn is seeded No 1 in the Qualifying Tourney.....so surely if Wayne withdraws Glenn should take his place......and therefore there's no need for Glenn and Frank Dancevic to play their final round Qualifying match.

Am I thinking correctly.?

BTW whats up with the Newport Website....kind of slow to get going dont you think.?

Do you know him,have you faced his serve.?

I haven't faced his serve...thank god. i'm 34...haven't played in a while. i know he played santopadre and sanguinetti at the qualifying session at wimbledon. let me tell you something curious about the match vs santopadre: in the whole first set glenn won 100% of the points on his serve :D ...something like 17 point out of 17. ask him about it, when you talk to him 8)
ciao

Ahaa...so you're an Italian fan I see. :D ...just kidding. ;)

Glenn had to play 3 Italians to Qualify at Wimbledon,and I see Saguinetti plays a Qualifier 1st round at Newport.

That was a great first set he served against Santopadre,I'll ask him about it when I speak to him again...pity he did'nt serve like that against Verdasco at Winbledon. ;)

well...i'm not an italian fan...i have the italian passport as well, but there are only a few italians i really like...and they all juniores.

on verdasco... he is not "grandpa" santopadre. verdasco is a good player, doesn't give up at all, hits the ball like crazy. plus he has a good hand. he is a top 50, no questions about it. 8)

sanguinetti will lose vs the qualifier, wanna bet? ;)

I agree with you,he'll more than likely lose.

Shame......I watched him in that match against Rusedski at Wimbledon......he looked slow and old........very clever player,but no real weapons.

Glenn actually beat him in final round qualies at Wimbledon......but he got one of the LL spots.....and 2 hours of TV coverage. :)

Verdasco is a great player,no doubt about it.

yep, sanguinetti looked old even when he was twenty years old :D .
and he used to play the same slow/ no punch tennis...which works, actually. like santoro, with much less talent.

anyway, weiner can upset dancevic, it shouldn't be a problem. hope arthurs will play the tournament, he's one of my favorites. another one to watch is moodie...if he is in the right mood ( :D ).

:D :D :D
He also reminds me a lot of Brad Gilbert........I was always amazed at how Brad could beat top players just by the tactics he used.

Hopefully Weiner :lol: can upset Dancevic....and hopefully Weiner wont have to play Moodie in the 1st round.....because when Wesleys in the "Moodie" :lol: he can beat anyone.

I seem to recall Newport always being slow in updating their website to include draw results....so I guess this year will be no exception.

The Newport definitely wins the award for the worst website, ripping it away from Scottsdale. There is actually more up to date info on the Hall of Fame website then the sub site for the tournament. Anyway, Arthurs apparently has a shoulder injury and I hope Kendrick will take advantage of his second chance in the main draw.

can someone tell me if kendrick got in by random draw or if the LL went to the next highest player

Lucky losers are always ordered by ranking. Players must sign a lucky loser list and are chosen by the highest rank on that list.

You were close.....Glenn beat him in three.....5/7 7/6 7/5.....good win.

Now Alexander Peya.....looks like a good grass courter....beat Rusedski at Surbiton...and took Roddick to a tie breaker at Wimbledon.....hmmm,good luck Glenn. :)

I cant believe the Newport Website......the worst I've seen....the latest update is Vahaly getting a wild card. :lol: ....why Vahaly got a wild card I'll never know. :?

:D i know.

today potito starace (write this name down, man) upset hanescu 36 76 76 saving 3 matchpoints in the final set, in gstaad. he defeated d.sanchez at the first round...after having played the qualy, of course.

went through the qualifying session at the roland garros as well, gave 3-0 to the russian player who lives in florida...can't remember his name right now (the one who kicked safin's butt at wimbledon) at the first round... 3-0 to grosjean on the central court (oh yes 8) ) at the second round... lost 75 at the fifth set vs safin after having had 2 mps :( (on one of them the linesman called a footfault!!)

ehi crazydiamond, what part of SA are you from? 8)

I remember him from Wimbledon....he got a LL spot....lost to Robredo.

Great wins against Hanesco and Sanchez.

Im from Johanessburg.......the Sandton area.

exactly, but he is not that good on grass.

a good talent from SA is whitehouse...even if the very last time i saw him playing (qualy in milano, challenger) he was totally overweight.

going to sleep, my wife is bitching :D .

Whitehouse was a wimbledon junior champ. He has not lived up to the promise. May be getting late for him? .. Didn't know that weight was a part of his problem.

Vahaly got a wildcard because the tournament director chose to give him one, and possibly because Robby Ginepri declined it and the spot was open. What's wrong with that? It resulted in his first win of the year, so good for Brian.

Kendrick is dealing with a nagging injury, so as much as I would have liked to see him win that match, his loss doesn't surprise me. Sanguinetti pulls off odd wins every once in a while.

CrazyDiamond any word on David Adams? I think I heard he had an elbow injury and decided to retire, but he's trying to work with the SA Federation these days. Is that true?

Hi Fiona

I dont deprive any player the opportunity of a Wild Card,but I question why it's always the sponsors "favourite" that gets it.....remember when you were at school and the teachers had their favourite students....did'nt it bug you.?

There are a couple of American players that deserve a wild card,but never get one.
It's not my fault if Vahaly cant win a 1st round match......maybe he should stop following Roddick around and rather concerntrate on playing Tennis.
He was in the Top 100,and now he is'nt....tough luck......same with Justin.

Anyway Glenn just beat Alexander Peya in straight sets......Glenn did'nt get a wild card.......he's now played 3 Qualy matches and a 1st round in 4 days....and plays his 2nd round match today.
Am I biased towards Glenn.....you bet I am.
The USTA wants Glenn to break the Top 100 the hard way....no problem,that's the way he'll do it.....without their "wildcard"help.
Hopefully he does it before the US Open,because Im pretty certain they wont give him a wildcard into the Open......they never have.

David Adams has retired,but Im not certain about his future......I'll make an inquiry for you.

Good luck Glenn.
