Lightbulb Week 1: Doha, Adelaide, Chennai

Yes Yes Yes! The new ATP-season will start again very soon!!!
Much luck to the Belgian Players in 2004!


--> Olivier Rochus will start his season in Qatar ($1000k) and I presume Kristof Vliegen is going to defend his points in Adelaide ($380k), but I don't know yet about the other players... Anyone?

are you sure that Oli is playing in Qatar? I have seen the commitments list on the official website and there was Christophe, not Olivier Rochus on it actually...

hmm indeed, I don't know for sure, but I guess they mistook Christophe for Olivier. The players at the commitment list are placed in order of their ranking...
Davydenko = 44
Stepanek = 46
Volandri = 47
Rochus = 48
Sanchez = 50
Gambill = 51, etc.

Olivier is number 48 in the rankings, so I suppose it is Olivier who is playing in Qatar.
But of course I could be wrong.

Re: Week 1: Qatar, Chennai

Hopman Cup, Perth (Australia)
monday 5/1:
... Xavier Malisse vs. Karol Kucera
... Malisse/Clijsters vs. Kucera/Hantuchova

wednesday 7/1:
... Xavier Malisse vs. Lleyton Hewitt
... Malisse/Clijsters vs. Hewitt/Molik

friday 9/1
... Xavier Malisse vs. Savolt
... Malisse/Clijsters vs. Savolt/Mandula


Adelaide (Australia), $380k, rebound ace
Q1: #116 (7) Kristof Vliegen (BEL) vs #462 (WC) Chris Guccione (AUS)

If Kristof wins his two first qualifying matches, he'll probably have to play against Richard Gasquet to gain a ticket for the main draw.
Good luck Kristof!!!
