Gaudio qualified the moment he won Paris, didn't he?

Yes, he did. Thats the last thing I needed, Potato to qualify. I knew it was coming, though.

Re: Gaudio and Hewitt qualify for Houston

Not really, if Johansson had won today, he would have qualified instead of Gaudio I think, or there was a huge chance he would have.

No .... he would've had to win the title to do so. And even then maybe not.

Re: Gaudio and Hewitt qualify for Houston

This is wonderful for Lleyton and Gaston. I believe that Lleyton has a good chance of winning the Masters this year-provided, of course, that he's not matched up with a hot and in-form Federer before the final.

Yeah, I don't think that PimPim would have had enough points to qualify at this point. If he posts consistently good results leading up to the Masters, then he can qualify.

Re: Gaudio and Hewitt qualify for Houston

Only four spots left now. Which players do you think will make it to the list?

The qualification is not immediate.


Quote:
Qualification: The top seven finishers in the ATP Champions Race 2004 will qualify. The eighth place will go to the highest-placed Grand Slam winner who finishes outside the top seven but within the top 20. If no player fits this classification, the eighth place will go to the player finishing eighth in the ATP Champions Race 2004.
Gaston needs to stay in the Top 20, and that the USO’s winner was necessarily in the Top 8 as Hewitt / or with lower ranking than him.

"The qualification is not immediate."

But ... the Slam wildcard ... I admit it wasn't set in stone, as a weird winner could've emerged in Britain or the USA, but it was damn near certain he'd be in.

Tomas Johansson and Albert Costa won a GS in the 2002. Both were outside the top seven but within the top 20, but the ATP only grants 1 slam wildcard. Costa obtained this to have better ranking, and Johansson was as substitute.

Very Likely:
Moyà
Henman
Agassi
and perhaps... Coria.
But if coria is not yet fully recovered there are like 6 or 7 players more who will fight for the last spot till the very last moment. Among them: Safin, Grosjean, Hrbaty, Robredo, Nalbandián, Massú, Jochansson, did I forget someone else?

Agassi won't do it unless he plays the indoor circuit. No sure thang.
