That's not the problem. The masters events are only mandatory for those players who get in without any other players withdrawing. Kiwi did not commit to Rome qualies but he committed to the main draw. He could have withdrawn until yesterday. But obviously he wants to play.
My bad. That makes of course more sense.
Damn... so in other words: we can follow him one match (hopefully at least on a main court with TV coverage on a live stream or anywhere else) and then the week is already over again
Pretty sure we'll be able to see him on the Pay Stream, since it's against a Spaniard. Not so sure, that he'll be shown on the World Feed, though, and thus on a free stream.
Ferrero is of course the overwhelming favorite. Why didn't he get a a hard court player?
For some reason, I thought that next week's tourney was in Spain. I was probably still thinking about Barcelona.
Well, I hope that the match will take place on one of the two main courts.
