Re: 16 Qualifiers for Australian Open 2010 Set.

Yes I know, but the question is when will they be placed?

Also one LL guarenteed to be in, how is that chosen? randomly among the top 4 losers or somthing?

Lucky Loser will be the highest ranked Qualifier who lost in the final round

I don't trust Wiki, I think they changed the rule. Well if you're right then it would be Darcis.

Geez you're a doubting thomas :-P - http://www.australianopen.com/en_AU/...a_z_guide.html

Scroll down to Lucky Losers

"If a main draw player is unable to play in the first round, the highest-ranked losing player in the third round of qualifying becomes a 'lucky loser' and fills the vacancy in the main draw."

Re: 16 Qualifiers & 1 Lucky Loser for Australian Open 2010 Set.

Why did they change it back to the highest ranked player? Randomly selecting one of the top 4 losers in the third round of qualifying was such a better idea I thought.

Baker (USA) - Bedene (SLO) - Bellucci (BRA) - Berta (SWE) - Cuevas (URU) - Domijan (USA) - Ebden (AUS) - Estrella (DOM) - Grigelis (LTU) - Guccione (AUS) - Heliovaara (FIN) - Kavcic (SLO) - King (BAH) - Kontinen (FIN) - Kubler (AUS) - Lajovic (SRB) - Matosevic (AUS) - McGee (IRE) - Millman (AUS) - Mitchell (AUS) - Nielsen (DEN) - Nieminen (FIN) - Paire (FRA) - Udomchoke (THA)

Qualifiers placed.

Rufin vs. Tomic

Battle of the youngsters Tomic


And I was right, Ilhan got in not Darcis so it was random.

Hocevar, Kindlmann, Anderson, and Ebden with the bad draws everyone else has a shot.

Malisse vs. Almagro should be fun. Also look for the Don to roll also Marchenko will beat old man Moya.

Will Tomic still win you reckon? His opponent sounds decent, is higher ranked and in winning form.

Not a chance for Hocevar, too bad.

The Don has his big shot here.

As you see, that is not true as Ilhan is picked as LL...
