Re: Commitments

Uhm, basically players with a certain ranking are obliged to play this tournament. There is no commitment involved Goran will get a wildcard, and so will a couple of Brits. Then there are some qualifiers who can enter the tournament too. Federer, Henman, Rusedski, Roddick and basically everyone in the Top 90 (someone who knows the exact numbers, please fill me in ) will play. They must play, unless they are injured.

Re: Commitments

The initial cut is at spot 104 on the rankings after Rome.
(128 players, from which 8 WC's, 16 qualies).

Withdrawing players from that list (like Nadal, Kafelnikov is no longer top 104) will allow the number 105, 106 in ... etc.
That's the acceptancelist for Wimbledon.

Take in consideration players who have protected ranking, IE Tommy Haas.

Ah, Goran!!, What a player- I guess no body had such a drama filled Wimbly career. Even the great Sampras, I can say. Nothing came to him without any drama.

Re: Commitments

Goran sad this year's Wimbledon is his last tournament! He's retiring!

The way he plays now, first round will probably be his last match!

Maybe he can win a match or two if he draws a claycourter but with no matches under his belt i just don't see him winning 4 or 5 set matches.

Re: Commitments

maybe he breaks few rackets and throws one or two "nice words" at the judge for the good old days!

Re: Commitments

Ah, I hope Goran does well in his last tournament.

And here is a quote from him...

My serve is not as good as it used to be. Other guys hit much harder. Now I am ideal for women's tennis. Serena, Venus and me, what a fight that would be!

I wonder how Serena reacted to that?!@
