Estoril will no have Round Robin...

Estoril Open deverá abolir o round robin
MANUEL PEREZ in O JOGO


A decisão da João Lagos Sports será tornada pública depois de amanhã, mas tudo indica que o Estoril Open venha a antecipar-se à ATP e anuncie o regresso ao formato tradicional (quadro de 32 jogadores com eliminação directa), em vez de um round robin (fase com oito grupo de três jogadores que se defrontam no sistema de todos contra todos) antes dos quartos-de-final.

Após a confusão verificada na maior parte dos torneios já disputados com essa inovação (Adelaide, Viña del Mar, Delray Beach, Buenos Aires e Las Vegas), o Estoril Open surge no calendário como a próxima etapa em que o round robin estará em vigor. Acontece, porém, que o órgão máximo que dirige o circuito profissional masculino (ATP), irá avaliar a continuidade, ou não, desse formato na reunião agendada para o próximo dia 22, durante o Masters Series de Miami.

Anteontem, numa entrevista a um jornal do seu país, o croata Ivan Ljubicic garantiu que esse formato será extinto nessa reunião. "O round robin está acabado e todos os tenistas concordam com a sua abolição. Será apenas uma questão de tempo até a decisão ser confirmada e mais nenhum torneio usará essa forma", afirmou o presidente do Conselho dos Jogadores na ATP e actual oitavo no ranking mundial. Ljubicic revelou também que teve vontade de renunciar ao cargo de máximo representante dos tenistas após a alteração das regras durante o torneio de Las Vegas – um erro assumido pelo líder da ATP, Ettienne de Villiers –, mas outros membros do "board" aconselharam-no a manter as funções num período em que o ténis profissional pretende levar a cabo uma série de reformas.

This article, from a portuguese newspaper, says that Joao Lagos, Estoril Open's director, should retires round robin format from portuguese tournament. Decision will taken in Monday (12 March)!

ATP will analize Round Robin too, in March 22, at Miami. Round Robin format will can die in this day. Ljubicic said in croatian newspaper that all players are against RR and is a question of time until decision be taken.

Great result.

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
