Don't think so - it's just a precaution. Feña is very cautios - unlike Massú who should also rest due to the problems with his adductors. His doctor recommended it but he can't stop and right now he's battling in B.Aires against M. Daniel (3:1 up in 3rd set...)

Doubles intentions (just an expected list that ATP knows; No commitment for the teams)

Costa do Sauipe: Cermak/Friedl, Fyrstenberg/Matkowski
Memphis: Aspelin/Perry, Bryan/Bryan, Goldstein/Thomas, Kerr/Parrott, Knowles/Nestor
Rotterdam: Bhupathi/Moodie, Erlich/Ram, Hanley/Ullyett, Levinsky/Lindstedt

Jay

This new system really allows them to change I wonder if it was Mark or Daniel who preferred to play in Memphis.


There is no commitment list. Just an informal list the ATP keeps, based on whichever doubles teams tell them their intention. They can change anytime. I think I might have made a mistake above though .. The current list is -

Costa do Sauipe: Cermak/Friedl, Fyrstenberg/Matkowski
Memphis: Aspelin/Perry, Bryan/Bryan, Goldstein/Thomas, Kerr/Parrott, Levinsky/Lindstedt,
Rotterdam: Bhupathi/Moodie, Erlich/Ram, Hanley/Ullyett, Knowles/Nestor

(I might have flopped the teams last time I guess..)

Considering Cipolla is in the doubles semis in Belgrade, and Tipsarevic is still playing his singles quarter final match today, I am pretty sure they will not be in R'dam qualies.

Hopefully Michael Lammer will show up :lol:

Jay: Are you sure about there being no SE spots in Costa do Sauipe? There are three IS tournaments this week & Costa do Sauipe is the only IS tournament next week. Also, without the two SE spots in the entry list, there are only 30 players. I expect they would be cleared soon anyway, but that still leaves only 30 players in the entry list.

[Sorry smucav, my mistake .. There were SE spots, of course, at CDSauipe.. Jay]

Hi Nathii :Wave: - from what I've heard, Chucho is just tired and wants a break. He has played almost every day for 2 weeks (and he normally plays doubles as well as singles), he is still involved in the Buenos Aires tournament as I write this- and he just feels his body needs a week off to rest. Nothing major to worry about at all. Must say - I thought you could not withdraw from a tournament while still involved in one the week before though :?

According to ATP RULE BOOK : " 3) No player may continue playing in an ATP or Challenger Series Tournament in singles or doubles after giving notice of withdrawal from a Tournament scheduled for the next week. "

So there are only two possible explanations .

1) Acasuso knew beforehand he was gonna lose , that is he lost on purpose .

2 ) If he had defeat Calleri he had been disqualifyed . Then Calleri would have been designated as the winner of the match or maybe Volandri would pass directly to the final without playing the semifinal ??

I don't understand anything :KooKoo:

Bahia
WC Andre Sa replaced WC Carlos Moya

Sá é sexto brasileiro na chave principal da competição


Além do duelo brasileiro entre Gustavo Kuerten e André Ghem, o Brasil Open ganhou a presença de mais um tenista nacional na chave principal do torneio. O escolhido foi o mineiro André Sá, que ganhou o lugar do espanhol Carlos Moyá, classificado para a final do ATP de Buenos Aires.

Aliás, o mineiro teve outra boa notícia no sortei, pois escapou da batalha com um dos favoritos na primeira rodada e encara um classificado do qualifying. "O Brasil Open é um torneio que gosto muito, mas tive uma semana dura aqui em Buenos Aires, estou com dores nas costas e preciso me preservar", justificou Moyá, que decide na Argentina neste domingo contra o italiano Filippo Volandri.

Quem também desistiu de disputar o Brasil Open 2006 foi o argentino Guillermo Coria. "Sei que neste momento não estou jogando meu melhor tênis, que as coisas não estão acontecendo do jeito que eu esperava e tenho também sentido dores no cotovelo. Tudo isso fez com que eu desistisse do Brasil Open, torneio do qual tenho uma ótima recordação (fez a final de 2002, contra o Guga). Tomara que eu consiga encontrar meu melhor tênis e, em 2007, jogar de novo na Costa do Sauípe", comentou o 7º do ranking mundial.

Além de Sá, mais dois brasileiros conheceram seus rivais na estréia. Marcos Daniel encara o chileno Nicolas Massu e Ricardo Mello pega o costa-riquenho Juan Antonio Marin. O gaúcho reencontra Massu pela terceira vez neste ano e busca a primeira vitória depois de cair nas estréias em Viña Del Mar e Buenos Aires nas duas semanas anteriores.

Mello sabe o que precisa para superar a estréia. "Será a primeira vez que a gente vai se enfrentar. Sei que ele é especialista em saibro e vou tentar atacar ao máximo a esquerda dele", comentou Mello, que em sua melhor participação no Brasil Open foi a semifinal no ano passado.

Rotterdam: S.Grosjean flew back to Florida awaiting his child to be born in some days.

So he won't play Rotterdam, this is sure.

Memphis qualies:

Who are these great champions who received a WC (and 1 ATP point) for Memphis qualies ? :
(WC)Damien Spizzo (AUS)
(WC)James Spence (NZL)

I guess they bought their WCs.
Do someone has more info ?

Sjeng Schalken is injured again, and won't play in Rotterdam either.

It's beginning to look like a challenger tournament in Rotterdam :(

It's official now: Sebastien Grosjean won't play in Rotterdam.
Dutch WC Sjeng Schalken won't play either due to an injury. They will be replaced by lucky losers

11 players from the official 28 (including WC) have withdrawn now, maybe a record for a 32 draw tournament?

Do someone has more info ?


I like that SEB "who are these great champions"?

They are college players, spizzo at the university of tennessee, a pretty good player and is worth giving a wildcard to, the other dude...mister Spence however, plays for the university of Memphis and does not seem to be on the same level as mr. spizzo and I would say does not deserve a WC but what can I say, he is the hometown boy

Thanks Cmb for the information. I am very sensitive for players buying WC, that's why I asked ;)

I think nevertheless that in a so high level draw it doesn't make big sense to give WCs to players with such a low level, but the decision is of course up to the tournament direction...

Acording to a Dutch friend of mine, Nadal has also withdrawn from Rotterdam. Their source is local radio and TV teletext news. I understand he has withdrawn through "exhaustion" but I have no further details at the moment.

here it's said Nadal withdrawn from Rotterdam. It's the local radio's site referred to before.
This local radio (and tv station) is mostly well-informed and not just a little local station. It's well know through the whole region near Rotterdam.

Nadal retired from rotterdam because he is tired/// :shocked:

He played 4 matches this year... and now he is tired!!

They should suspend him for a year... then he can rest from his 4 matches... Rotterdam almost depended on him to "save" their tournament... and now this...

He should be ashemed of himself.

What happens when one more player pulls back? Will someone who only entered the qualies and didn't even won one match get in?
