Early Commitments

Local boys Fernando Gonzalez and Nicolas Massu commited to this tournament. By the way, the sponsor changed and the tournament will be called Movistar Open ATP Viña del Mar 2006.

Re: Early Commitments

2 of the wild-cards will go to Chile's Davis Cup team members Paul Capdeville and Adrian Garcia. The other one shall be reserved for a top player who eventually decides to take part of the tournament after the entry deadline.

Re: Early Commitments

Slovakia's Davis Cup team members Dominik Hrbaty and Karol Beck have a high possibility of playing here as well, since they will be playing against Chile in Rancagua the following week after the tournament.

Re: Early Commitments

Gustavo Kuerten commited. I just don't know if he'll be handled a WC, or if he'll use his protected ranking. It'll be his first tournament after the US Open.
