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: Week 40 : Sacramento (Entry List)

What is Matteo Viola doing here?

I guess he's okay on hard-courts, but this list is über competitive for him to do well. Good luck, though.

Doubt it unless he gets some type of wildcard (didn't sign up for the tournament).

I guess he got a wildcard for Costa Mesa since I didn't see him in the qualifying draw.

Btw, do you have any idea who will get the wildcards for this tournament?

Well at least they got a top 100 player, which Vancouver did not.

I really hope Klahn gets a WC here, if anyone should get one, it's him, going from what he did in the USO, he could take this.
