    Depending of course on the weather!!! Forecast to be around 16/17 degrees but maybe rain afternoon. I know they can play indoors but it's not the same as watching them play on grass.

    Delgado/Skupski are playing the Quimper Challenger this week. They missed the cut for the Rotterdam 500 and this is the only Challenger event worldwide this week! ATP250's are in the USA and Brasil.

    Ken Skupski ‏@k_skupski
    .@DelgadoJamie and I are in Quimper, France this week for what is expected to be a strong Challenger.

    Seems like the best idea, not too far to travel (it seems a few others had the same idea - although it seems to me that the stronger opposition is in the other half of the draw).

    Delgado and Skupski have stayed in France and are the top seeds at this Challenger event.

    (1)Delgado/Skupski v (wc)Firmin/Muller

    Wikipedia has this to say ...
    Quimper is the ancient capital of La Cornouaille, Brittany’s most traditional region, and has a distinctive Breton character. Shops and flags celebrating the region's Celtic heritage can be found throughout the city.
    Quimper is twinned with Falkirk in the UK as well as 5 other cities.

    Unfortunately, it seems to be lacking in places to eat on a Sunday night!!!
    Ken Skupski ‏@k_skupski No food at club, restaurant, room service, local restaurant, supermarket or dominos. Considering my left arm. Slightly more meat. #shocker
    And I'm quite entertained by the Hebergement section on the website!

    Good news from Quimper ...
    Jamie Delgado/Ken Skupski[1] d Emilien Firmin/Gilles Müller (FRA/LUX) 6-4 6-3

    Ken Skupski ‏@k_skupski Solid start 6-4 6-3. Played a joke on the net cord points. #winning
    Apparently one of the players (may have been Skuppers) hit a serve which caught the net and went in for an ACE!
    According to the new 'no let cord' rule that's how it is in Challengers now!

    Potentially less good news from Delgy ... hope he's not out of action long!
    jamie delgado ‏@DelgadoJamie Won tonight in again thursday.This week then Marseille and then home for while to sort my back injury out hopefully for good

    End of the line for Jamie Delgado and Ken Skupski.

    As per my post above Jamie has to spend time away from the tour sorting out a back injury.
    Given that he's now 35 I'd imagine if the problem doesn't go away that he'd have to finally quit playing.

    And Ken tweeted a couple of days ago that Marseille would be their last event together.
    Ken Skupski ‏@k_skupski Disappointing end to a good week. Went down 3-6 6-2 10-3.
    Heading to Marseille ATP 250 tonight for our final tournament together.
    His wife's tweet says it all .........
    Hayley Skupski ‏@hayley_skupski Wishing @k_skupski a successful last week in Marseille before
    he starts his paternity leave and becomes a daddy!
    So, we're unlikely to see Ken in action for a while and certainly not until after I/Wells and Miami.
    Wonder who he might team up with?

    Wishing them both the best of luck - Ken with a new chapter in his life and Jamie to heal properly.
    They've flown the flag for British tennis in doubles that's for sure.

    I first saw Jamie Delgado play at the British Nationals in Telford!!! During the mid-90's I made the trip 3 times and watched both Henman and Rusedski in action there as well as many long since forgotten British players (Alan Mackin, Andrew Richardson...)

    At one time he was considered a better player than Tim Henman but in the transition from Juniors to main tour somehow Tim motored ahead and Jamie's singles career stayed at Challenger level.
