He can start later on the tourney
i see, i guess they will let Ivan play his 1st round on Wen. because. he will probly play AO SF maybe even the F. no time to get back to Zagreb, but if he makes it to SF or F he will pull out.

I'm not sure which tourneys have SE, 'cause i'm a little confused about Zagreb/Vina/Delray Beach having SE

Gaudio º Gonzalez, F º Massu º Murray º Thiem º Nalbandian º Nishikori º Wawrinka

Re: entry list

I thought SE's were for people who would normally have to qualify, but cannot get to qualifying because they are through to the latter stages of a tournament the week before?

No No Ivan will play here no matter what, only way he pulls out is if its a injury where he can't play, its his hometown tournament and he will play here for sure.

You don't have to ask for an SE. They're a system at work here.

There are SEs listed for all of the tournaments a week after a grand slam. If someone were listed as an alternate on the list for Zagreb, for example, and they made it to the final weekend of the Australian, they could go directly in to the main draw at Zagreb.

This only works when the next tournament is of equal or lesser value. So, for the upcoming Rotterdam tournament there are no SEs. But the next week Acapulco does have an SE because it's equal to Rotterdam.

EXAMPLE: Last summer, Paul-Henri Mathieu got into the Montreal Masters because so many players dropped out. One week later in the Cincinnati Masters there were fewer drop outs and Mathieu was still on the alternates list. But because he made the semi-finals in Montreal he was still playing there when the Cincinnati qualifying started. So he got to take a SE spot in the Cincinnati main draw.

Because there are no players still in the Australian ranked too low to make the main draw somewhere next week, all of the SE spots will be cleared.

Yes. When no one meets the requirements for an SE, the next alternate (or two) move into the main draw.
