Early commitments

Entry list will be available soon, but unofficialy many names are known.

An ATP tournament stays though and it seems it will have one of the best assigment ever. Freshly announced commitment's list contains four top 20 players, great specialists on clay surface. The highest ranked player last year was Marat Safin who was No.15 in Champions Race ranking. This year French Open finalist Mariano Puerta is expected to show up. Puerta had a long break from tennis because of disqualification and last year was a tough come back for Argentinian player. He was struggling in challengers (also in Poland) to finally show what he's worth in Paris.

The second big name is Gaston Gaudio, French Open winner from last year. A player also from Argentina is admired mostly because of his great, stylish, one handed backhand. He's in the top of the clay ranking this year.

Another big Argentinian Guillermo Coria will be the third of 'big four'. Despite losing earlier in this year's French Open, Coria is always dangerous on clay and everybody knows he can win with everybody. He already played Idea Prokom Open tournament in 2003, which he of course won, in the final with David Ferrer.

The fourth star is French Open winner from 1998 Carlos Moya, who also played the tournament in 2003, but lost early. Moya has not been having a good season so far but in Paris lost to Federer, what is not a big shame.

The other players are Igor Andreev, who is also very dangerous on clay (last year in Sopot lost to Polish Łukasz Kubot); Jose Acasuso who beat Andy Roddick at the French Open this year and was the winner of Idea Prokom Open in 2002 and the finalist in 2004; Christophe Rochus; Felix Mantilla; Albert Martin or young and promising French player Gael Monfils.
Defending champion who was not very known last year Rafael Nadal, but now no.3 in the world and one of the biggest stars on Tour is not on the list.

Few days ago I heard that Juan Carlos Ferrero is also heading for Sopot. So, the lineup is quite promising.

Re: Early commitments

thanks for that I'm coming to Sopot this year. Can't wait!

Remember cuddles in the kitchen to get things off the ground, and it was up up and away
but its right hard to remember that on a day like today when you're all argumentative and got the face on...right then mardy bum...

Said, who's that girl there
I wonder what went wrong so that she had to roam the streets
She don't do major credit cards I doubt she does receipts
Its all not quite legitimate...

And I can't be arsed to carry on in this debate when you say I don't care, but of course I do, yeah I clearly do...
