Anything's possible. I mean Andre forgot to enter Houston last year - a tourney he'd played a lot and had won.... You'd think these guys would pay better attention

Re: entry list

I see that Brazilians (Daniel and Saretta) don't want to have a try on grass...

They will probably play at Nottingham or St. Hertogenbosch where the field is usually weaker.

Re: entry list

if I recall correctly, Greul had been last on the list before so it looks like he was bumped down to the ALT list

Re: entry list

I don't think it's a very good strategy for Nadal to play this tournament, if he wants to make an impact at Wimbledon. He'll likely play the final at Roland Garros on Sunday, arrive here tired to play on Wednesday on a completely different surface, against a much stronger field than Nottingham or St. Hertogenbosch.

Rafa making his calendar decisions based on money as always.

He should have choosen St. Hertogenbosch or Nottingham or an exibition tournament which is a week after French Open.

Probably stella pay appearence fee for just showing up.(Thailand paid about $500,000 appearnce fee to hewitt and federer last year)

Anyway IMO he should limit his matches on Grass(like Guga did) to avoid career threating injuries which can end his career.

Yeah, it's probably the appearance fees (and the official prize money) that convinced him alone to come. Beijing is another tournament that he likes to play because of the high appearance money, albeit being a tournament that offers only $500,000 in official prize money and few points.

Usually the most successful claycourters start skipping Wimbledon in the second half of their respective careers, so I wouldn't be surprised if Nadal is not serious anymore about it 4, 5 years from now - especially with the clay tournaments right after (Bastad, Stuttgart, etc.).
