Wouldn´t it be better to start those new topics when ALL the lists from the tournaments are available instead of only publishing one? When it´s not completed I think it´s better to have it in the open thread for entry lists. Then we don´t have to have different layout and structure of all the lists when one people start the topic in one way and the other adds it in his way. Everybody will also know that when a new topic is created then it containes all the lists!

Nothing against you ToniX because you have been really great with publishing the lists, especially when you´ve done it with all the lists at the same time! Keep up the good work! Now I´m just waiting for the Vienna and Moscow lists to see which players didn´t choose to come to lovely Stockholm... :)

Pat -- the problem was that I was traveling from early last week. Or we would have had the lists in together, as normal ... Good that Tonix started the thread when he didn't see me post the lists.

I have now added the ALT lists for all three events too, so we are all squared away on this thread ..

the past couple years he entered Bangkok - withdrew in 2003 after Davis Cup at the last minute and made the final last year but needed smelling salts in his first match and got hurt in the epic semi against Safin.... so, he smartly decided to skip it this year.

Quick question with regards the ALT lists please (sorry Jay.... I think you covered this once before)
Is there no limit to the number of tournaments a player can be placed on the ALT list? eg - Burgsmüller is down as an ALT player for 3 events.
Many thanks in advance

Nope, there's no limit to that. Players just enter more tournaments at once to get directly into the main draw *somewhere* when there are enough withdrawals.

First two WCs for Vienna to Koubek and Marach
Third One is being reserved for an Un named Player??


From Tournament Site
Jürgen Melzer ist fix im Hauptfeld und Stefan Koubek mit einer wild card. Eine weitere wild card geht an Oliver Marach, der zuletzt das Achtelfinale von Bukarest (Niederlage gegen Andrei Pavel) stand und im August in Manerbio (Italien) seinen dritten Challenger gewonnen hat. Die dritte wild card wird für einen, so glaube ich, hoch interessanten Spieler zurückgehalten. Sollte er nicht kommen, würde sie an einen weiteren Österreicher gehen.

Looks like Oliver Marach gets one too, and the fourth (they didn't count properly) is being reserved for a "highly interesting" player, although if he doesn't come it will go to another Austrian. Wonder who that is.

It has also been reported elsewhere that Nadal is tired and thinking of skipping Vienna now.

Nadal's presence in Vienna is very doubtful due to the huge accumulated tiredness during the season ( He finished Davis cup tie physically destroyed , in fact his coach has admitted that if the two first sets against Seppi have been tougher maybe Nadal hadn't won that match because in the third an fourth set was extremly exhausted.

Now, Nadal is now in a period of rest and recovery and it seems there are a lot of chances that he pulls out of Vienna, but his presence isn't ruled out yet.

I think Nadal is in on the basis of this from Vienna website

Eine Meldung auf der Homepage der Nummer zwei der Welt, von Rafael Nadal, sorgte am Wochenende für Aufregung in der Turnierleitung der 20. BA-CA TennisTrophy. Nadal, die Nummer eins des Jubiläumsturniers erwäge eine Absage für Wien. Montag früh kam die Entwarnung vom Management.
"Eine Absage ist kein Thema", erklärten unisono Nadal-Manager Carlos Costa und Vermittler Sergio Palmieri auf Anfrage von Turnierdirektor Peter Feigl. Nadal hat bereits eine Suite im Wiener Hotel Meridien vom 6. bis 17. Oktober reserviert, ist also auf einen Aufenthalt in Wien bis nach dem Finale eingestellt.
Grosse Erleichterung bei Feigl: "Ich habe nie wirklich an seiner Teilnahme gezweifelt", erklärte der ehemalige Spitzenspieler, "ich weiss, wie solche Meldungen zustande kommen. Da sagt einer etwas von Müdigkeit und schon entstehen Gerüchte!"
Feigl sieht noch einen zusätzlichen Grund für Nadal, in Wien anzutreten: "Federer hat mit seinem Turniersieg in Bangkok wieder die Saison-Führung mit 11 Turniersiegen vor Nadal (10) übernommen, und der Spanier möchte in Wien mit der Nummer eins der Welt wieder gleichziehen."
Erleichtert ist Feigl auch über die Tatsache, dass am Montag vor Beginn der BA-CA-Trophy keine Absagen aus dem Spitzenfeld eingetroffen sind und hofft, dass es so bleibt. Im Gegenteil: es gibt immer wieder Anfragen von prominenten Spielern um eine wild card in letzter Minute: "Das sind sehr attraktive Spieler darunter", freut sich der Turnierdirektor. "Es macht Sinn, die eine wild card noch etwas aufzuheben". Im Moment neigt er dazu, sie einem Spieler zu geben, der schon einmal die BA-CA-Trophy gewonnen hat. Schliesslich wird ja ein Jubiläum gefeiert!
Auf Grund der Entry-List von Montag lautet die inoffizielle Setzliste der 20. BA-CA-Trophy, die am Samstag, 8. Oktober 2005 mit dem Turnier der Champions beginnt, wie folgt:
(1) Rafael Nadal, (2) Guillermo Coria, (3) David Nalbandian, (4) Gaston Gaudio, (5) Ivan Ljubicic, (6) Radek Stepanek, (7) Tommy Robredo, 8 Fernando Gonzalez.

Jay, I have an alt list question for you. This one pertains specifically to Justin. He's on all 3 lists, and I think with the way the lists have been dropping the last two weeks, he stands a very good chance of getting in somewhere. All the names are the same, and they will eventually be spread out into the 3 tournaments by the end of the week. Would there be any advantage for Justin to pick a tournament now (say Stockholm) and take his name off the other alt lists, then see if any other players do the same? Perhaps some fo the guys in front of him on the Stockholm list would rather play Moscow or Vienna for some reason and take their names off that list. Do the players do that, or do they just wait to see which one they get into?

Fiona,

I don't think there is any advantage for oneself in taking one's name off the lists - though it certainly helps the players below in the list.

The players rarely take their names off the list till ATP calls and basically just twists their arms to pick a place by late in the week. If you legitimately are still considering two places, they will let ypu stay in those lists but I believe ATP is quite good in talking you out of more than 2 places by thursday or so ... I wish the players would just decide on some places and take their name off .. They do that generally only in the cases where they have done nothing about the airticket or visas for some of the places. Between European events, they all sit tight and do nothing - if they are in the list for an event in Asia or South America with tougher travel, they might take their names out (at least when ATP calls and asks you if you have a ticket to go etc, I believe! -- they know how to get you to quit dilly-dallying, from what I hear).

The one disadvantage in waiting past wednesday or so to decide on a place is that if you don't make it by thursday/friday, you have very little time to get a good flight and reach the place early enough on friday for some hitting on the court before playing qualies on saturday. So one should have a backup plan on one place and have a cancellable airticket ready to get there at least by friday afternoon.

Thanks Jay. I think he's hoping for Stockholm or Vienna (I don't think he did the paperwork to enter Russia). It will be a real drag if everyone decides they are healthy this week and the lists don't move much.

Don't players have to set their priority when entering several tournaments on the same week? (I know it works like that in WTA)
So they list tournament A as priority 1, tourney B as #2, tourney C as #3 etc... and if they get into the main draw in more than one tourney they are allocated to the one which they put in highest priority...

Yes, they do set priorities. Often they would put the higher priority for the event they suspect they will not make, and thus the chances are for you to first get closer to the cut in the lower priority events though. Then they may tell ATP that they are not interested and would rather wait for the higher priority event, etc ...

So if someone pulls out of Vienna can Lapentti say yes to them rather than Moscow ??

or is he committed to Moscow as they had a pull out first??

Yes he can. I don't know what priortities he specified in his entry, but as he is not cut out from Vienna, I assume he is interested in going there if he makes. If the cut falls there and he makes it, he can go there and can tell ASTP to remove him from the Moscow list.

If they continue like this maybe they all will be suspended for the DC-match against Sweden in February and we´ll have a little chance to win.... ;)

@jay

are you sure that there is no SE spot in vienna? there are 24 direct entries, 3 wild cards and 4 qualifiers, which makes only 31 instead of 32.

btw: if koubek makes the main draw tomorrow, the third wild card in vienna besides henman and marach goes to local hero alexander peya.
