Nadal won't play Båstad, it's a pisstake.
From what I remember, the Båstad Qualifying is like a low level future event (no offense)
There are 1 or 2 "big" names in the draw,, players that hope for a late withdrawal so they get in direct to MD or they play QF event.
I think there will actually be a couple of "byes" in the 1:st rd. What does it take to sign in to the Qualifying event? Is it a must to have at least 1 ATP Point to be able to play the qualifying or hope for a WC? I feel it´s VERY BAD if there is not at least a full draw in the qualifying. So many juniors that could have good use of the experience of playing a ATP qualifying event
