    Hopefully not too off-topic, but what’s up with Ivo Karlovic? I figured he would retire this year and maybe get a Miami WC, or qualies WC? Don’t think he’s played a match in 6 months since IW last September…

    Wow, Tsonga got a card, plays tomorrow vs. Thompson… Thompson solid but Tsonga more talented…. but is Tsonga just shot… ?

    Cory, he’s done, his last match I believe was at US Open qualies. His ranking got too low and he can’t get back. I believe he was still on some Challenger entry lists after US Open but he elected not to play. He’s coaching his daughter now and she plays usta tournaments.

    Tsonga seems semi retired now, who knows if he’s on a last hurrah tour or he is working hard to make a full comeback like Verdasco, Sock…
