Las Vegas Field Looking Strong

There's no forum for it yet, so I'll post it here. If you didn't already know, the Scottsdale Open has moved to Las Vegas, Scottsdale usually got pretty weak draws because it's in the same weak as Acapulco and Dubai. Some early committments are:

Andy Roddick
Fernando Gonzalez
Tommy Robredo
Robby Ginepri
James Blake
Max Mirnyi
Xavier Malisse
Mark Phillipoussis
Vince Spadea
Mardy Fish
Andy Murray

Manchester City F.C.
2011-2012 English Premier League Champions

Re: Las Vegas Field Looking Strong

Gonzo is going to Las Vegas instead of Acapulco.

With his child-fiancee, I'm sure the Poo will fit in just fine there.

Re: Las Vegas Field Looking Strong

The casinos must be helping with appearance money.

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: Las Vegas Field Looking Strong

Gonzo usually only plays VDM in the South American clay tour, although last year he played BA as well. The other year he went to Europe after his home event.

Andy probably would still have a low ranking to enter Rotterdam, Dubai directly so this is a good choice, and good preparation for IW/Miami.

Re: Las Vegas Field Looking Strong

Surely you're not suggesting he ducked it deliberately, are you lau?

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

You're wrong Agassi is going to Dubai for the culture, architecture and not for the appearance money, it is not true that Dubai is the real cash cow. He wants to go skiing there.

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".

you both are wrong. He's so scared to play in front of his home crowd
