Enjoy the tourney abhinav!

Not much better than seeing a week of live tennis showcasing a few of the best players in the world...be sure to check out the practise courts to get an idea of their work ethic...some of them work so hard!

...oh and don't leave the site without having a word with Dima

I doubt Rusedski will make it...but he isn't such a big loss these days.

Is Kiefer fit yet?

No because there are over 250 nations in the world and only about 40 weeks of tennis, excluding David Cup. that means about 6 tournaments per week, if each nation were to hold a tournament? doesn't sound plausible to me.

I read Mirka's interview once, and she said that Roger and she would really like to travel to and in India. Not for this tournament though, it seems.

When was the last time an ATP event was held in an African nation? Oops, nevermind. I forgot about the event in Morocco. That's the only one, right? Aside from that one, I'm guessing South Africa was probably the last place to host one.

Yes, they used to have one in Johannesburg.

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".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1
