Poor Conor...he fought back from 0-3 to 3-3 in the third, then had a BP in the 7th game, missed the chance and that was it. That sucks so much, it nearly would have been better to just get hammered 2 and 2 than to have all the "what if"s that inevitably result from a loss like this. But he really shouldn't beat himself up, he really hit above his weight throughout and between this and Doha he will probably return home with prize money equal to about 6 months of playing Challenger/Futures tournaments. If he can maintain this level 2010 could be the best year of his career, he certainly deserves it.
While I'm disappointed for Niland, it is still amazing to have one Irish player through to a grand slam main draw. I never thought I would see the day I hope Sorensen and Niland's efforts don't go largely unnoticed here but I guess they will. They will need to qualify for Wimbledon before the Irish media takes notice of them
jesus i cant believe that Conor lost, i was sick when i found out. But heartiest congratulations to Louk Sorensen for qualifying for the main draw. Louk is scheduled to play on Monday and he is playing a guy from Chinese Taipei, I think Louk if all going well Louk might score an upset, keep our fingers crossed!
Well done Louk, Im sooo excited to see how he does. It's such a shame for Conor, especially since he would have been playing Hewitt in the first round. That's guaranteed to be on Laver, I would have loved to have seen that!
