Re: 2006 ATP Calendar Released..Back to Old Dates

Thanks for that Judio.

What they have done different is moved to Houston to the 1st week of the clayseason and it now competes with Valencia instead, which I knew about earlier, but they have done it.

Davis Cup has changed back to what it was before and they still have 3 back to back TMS events.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: 2006 ATP Calendar Released..Back to Old Dates

we will see more changes for 2007. ATP-WTA want to have 4 mixed tournaments of 10 days, IW, Miami and ...... surprise surprise, the director of the Tennis Masters Madrid announced in Paris that the Spanish capital city will host a mixed event of 10 days in the first weeks of May of 2007!!!!
The tournament will replace the October's Masters and will be played on clay!

An Asian city will host the other 10 days tournament...

First weeks of May? What are they gonna do, play three AMS events back to back?

As far as I'm concerned you can't play 4 AMS events in a 6 week period, so one of the other 3 would have to go, probably Hamburg. They might shift that to the end of the year and make it an indoor tournament.

ROGER FEDERER

Berdych, Blake, J. Johansson, Ljubicic, Nalbandian and Tursunov


2005 PAW Year-end ranking: 1
2006 PAW Year-end ranking: 1
2007 PAW Year-end ranking: 6

Career titles (7): 2004 – Toronto AMS; 2005 – Monte Carlo AMS, Roland Garros, Kitzbühel; 2006 – Doha, Beijing; 2007 - Kitzbühel.
Finalist (3): 2005 – Miami AMS, Barcelona; 2006 – Bastad.

Hamburg has oil money to keep it there and there is plenty of it as well I don't see it moving just yet.

Re: 2006 ATP Calendar Released..Back to Old Dates

Woo! December (edit: it said January. I am :retard: )31st, Adelaide, here I come!
Very glad to see DC move back. Perhaps we'll play someone decent in the first round (preferably here!?) and the players will stay a while

maybe would be better fro German players if Hamburg is played on indoors hard-courts so perhaps Madrid-Hamburg will change the events ...
but only i know what the director said, and he said that Madrid will host a mixed event for 2007, 10 days and in the first weeks of May

I don't believe it unless I see it and if Tiriac is the tournament director he talks a lot, but he gets things done, but there are enough combined events as is.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

I would love that idea That would be a beautiful idea and if I were in charge I would not hesitate one millisecond to give Madrid the clay event and getting a nice indoor Masters in exchange for that which takes place at the end of the season.

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

The city of Hamburg is planning to build a whole new tennis-arena in Altona with 17 courts. If this happens, the Rothenbaum arena will be knocked down.
The city is already doing a feasibility study.
