Vienna

There has been some news about this tournament. I know it's early, but I thought we should start a thread

Vienna: Nalbandian becomes top seed, Moya out

VIENNA, Austria (AP) -- With Spain's Carlos Moya surprisingly withdrawing from the CA Trophy tennis tournament starting next week, organizers moved Argentine David Nalbandian up to top seed on Monday.

"After Carlos Moya had to pull out with a shoulder injury, we decided to put David (to the) top," event organizer Peter Feigl said.

Nalbandian was placed ahead of Chile's Nicolas Massu. Massu, the 2004 Olympic champion, will celebrate his 25th birthday on the opening day of the tournament, which runs from Oct. 10-17.

The world's top-ranked player, Roger Federer of Switzerland, will not be able to defend his title in Vienna for a third consecutive time as "he is traveling to Asia for his sponsors at that time of year," Feigl added.

Tim Henman, who was part of Britain's failed bid to remain in the Davis Cup World Group when it lost a playoff tie on Austrian soil, is ready to fill Federer's shoes, according to Feigl.

"We would like to have Tim play instead of Roger. Henman made a great impression last year and told us, he wanted to come back," Feigl said.

In 2003, Henman reached the semifinals, losing to Moya in two close sets.

Other seeded players are Germany's Australian Open finalist, Rainer Schuettler (3), Spaniard Tommy Robredo (4), Argentina's Juan Ignacio Chela (5), Paradorn Srichaphan of Thailand (6), Guillermo Canas (7), also of Argentina, and Czech Jiri Novak (8).

Re: Vienna

I'm so excited about going here - my first "live" tournament for 4 months It would be exciting to see David as Number 1 there (never been to a tournament where he is Number 1 before!), but I will enjoy it just as much whether he is Number 1 or 2. VAMOS DAVID.

Re: Vienna

it seems moya got the should injury when playing DC semi, and he wants to recover completely before madrid, which he focuses on winning his second TMS this year. so it will be a tight schedule for david with 5 weeks non-stop playing until the end of the year: japan, vienna, madrid, basel and paris. but vienna is worth looking forward to also that means there should be a tight tennis trip schedule for Rosie so, enjoy them!!!

also good luck to willy and jiri, it's so nice to see your names again in the vienna entry list

I hope, Rosie, that you can get a lot of pics and a lot of "hellos" in from us.

I wish Bjorki.......No - I always do this. Work 7 days a week for about 3 months - do lots of overtime, and then go away for 3-4 weeks, spend all my money and come back to start again!!!
