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 45 : Bratislava (Entry List)

One of the best lists in Bratislava - Lacko, Hanescu, Phau, Llodra, Rosol, Stakhovsky, Berankis, Rochus, Dodig, Berrer, Karlovic, De Schepper, Delbonis, Stebe, Dancevic, Chiudinelli and possibly Gulbis - they are great players to watch, can´t wait !

Roger Federer - Martin Klizan - Lukas Lacko - Milos Raonic - Fernando Verdasco

Dustin Brown - Nick Kyrgios - Norbert Gombos - Stanislas Wawrinka - Dominic Thiem

I don´t know, he said himself that his last tournament will be Paris-Bercy.

However, he is 3rd alternate so far (with Nadal OUT) - but he is not in qualies list. If that situation occur and he won´t make cut to MD I expect him to ask for WC here - because he can´t play Q in Paris. But I think he will be in Paris MD.

Klizan will be playing exhibition match vs. Djokovic on this court 3 days after this tournament, though.

Re: Week 45 : Bratislava (Entry List)

Wild Cards go to Andrej Martin, Norbert Gombos, Jozef Kovalik & Jiri Vesely (CZE). 1st WC alternate is Filip Horansky.

I really don´t understand Slovak Tennis Association, why they are giving WC to Jiri Vesely for a second straight year ? Yes, he is talented Czech player, but so is Horansky as a Slovak. Did any Czech tournament give WC to Slovak player in last year or two ? No, they didn´t.

Let the Czech play qualies and Horansky might get WC instead.

I love Horansky so I'm disappointed with that.

Re: Week 45 : Bratislava (Entry List)

I am happy Horansky got the WC. Better choice than Vesely for sure from national sight. I am looking forward to see him play.

Re: Week 45 : Bratislava (Entry List)

Stebe is OUT. Better thing is that Gulbis is IN.

Janowicz has officially not pulled out yet, but he won´t play here (source from Poland).
