Exclamation Cancellations :(

OK Just a day before the qualification tournament starts, six cancellations have been confirmed by the ABN/AMRO World Tennis Tournament of Rotterdam.

The cancellations are as follows:

- Younes El Aynaoui, injured.
- Ivan Ljubicic, injured
- Jiri Novak, leg injury
- Sébastien Grosjean, injury
- Mark Philippoussis, who needs a rest.
- Greg Rusedski, injured.

This probably means that the six highest seeded qualification players, namely Olivier Rochus, Ivo Karlovic, Mario Ancic, Paul-Henri Mathieu, Thierry Ascione and Dennis van Scheppingen, will enter the main field thanks to these cancellations. These names have not yet been confirmed, so it could still be possible that the tournament director finds new names.

Replacements in the qualifying draw haven't been mentioned yet either. Nor is the draw already out.

Re: Cancellations :(

Thanks Martijn...is Greg really injured? And does anyone know how Ferrero is - is he still planning to play in Rotterdam?

ilp, main draw seedings should follow the rankings from 9th Feb, and the main draw will be made Sunday afternoon 2pm local time (according to the website).

Re: Cancellations :(

Roger Federer will probably be seeded first.

jtipson, that is another problem the tournament faces. Both Ferrero (for a while) and Van Lottum (this week in the Cherbourg Challenger, first round against Saoudi) are or have been injured as well. This could mean that there are two more cancellations coming up, putting Koubek and Corretja in the main draw as well.

According to the source, Greg is injured. I personally doubt this, since I think he has to go to some Montreal tribunal someday soon or he had to go a few days ago..

He'd better be - no point in being number one if you can't get seeded top everywhere you play!

Greg is still awaiting the verdict and is allowed to play next week. Maybe he doesn't want to with that hanging over his head (and I don't really blame him).

Still, even with the withdrawls it's a great field. I'd love to be going

Well, you are never too sure whether he'll play or not..

And yes, it's a great field, but six cancellations, of which some big names, is a lot. But I am looking forward to it! 19 hours left!!!!

Re: Cancellations :(

By the way, a different source stated that the way the now remaining spots are going to be filled, is still unknown.

If they do it like the WTA Antwerpen tourney, they'll contract some other names instead of letting the qualification players move in the main field.

Re: Cancellations :(

OK New information.

Replacing the six players are:

- Raemon Sluiter (NED), who was granted a wild card. Who now obtains the wild card will be said on Sunday.
- Radek Stepanek (CZE)

And out of the qualifying commitment list:

- Olivier Rochus (BEL)
- Stefan Koubek (AUT)

Re: Cancellations :(

Thanks! I see they have posted a news article to this effect now on the tournament site. Hope there are not any more withdrawls...

Re: Cancellations :(

Yes, the qualification commitment list is highly twisted as well

The remaining wildcard has been given to Alex Corretja, which means he won't have to play in the qualification tournament.
