Re: Auckland Entry List (updated December 1, 2009)

Surely Nalby would get a Wild card to Sydney or Auckland? When do we hear about wild cards?

Nalby will get a wild-card, it was written again in the Gasquet article.

On the Auckland website, his participation was confirmed already a couple of weeks ago. (It's also on his official page.)
It doesn't say anything about giving him a wild card but that's obviously what they'll do.

Re: Auckland Entry List (updated December 1, 2009)

Nalbandian could probably have a far better protected ranking, but he maybe thought he could get in directly and preferred keeping it for next tournaments.

There is a clear mistake in that list. Crivoi never reached that high a ranking:

14 Crivoi, Victor ROU 48
Unfortunately he is out of the Top 100 again

He'll get a protected ranking but he'll only be able to use it for 8 tournaments.
So why "waste" one of those 8 opportunities on a smaller tournament if you can get a wild card?
(Same goes for the Copa Telmex, by the way.)

Rules for protected rankings are changing for 2010 so Nalbandian may have more than eight entries, but still no sensible player will use a protected ranking to enter if he can get a wild card. Most player have to use their protected rankings for the required tournaments since most wild cards go to local players.

I didn't know that the rules are changing, so thanks for the hint. Any idea where I can find out more?
But yeah, I guess he'll be happy about any wild card he can get.
