Wink 'Sempre Sopot Thread' - is anyone going?

I felt the fresh sea's breeze while reading posts about Bastad and Umag the beautiful tournaments, and thought it can be the moment to ask if any of Polish (or maybe even foreign) posters are heading off to Sopot

No JMG, this thread is not going to be 50 pages long

The funniest thing about Sopot tournament is that the average age of winners is 19.
2001 - Robredo - 19 (first won title)
2002 - Acasuso - 19 (first won title)
2003 - Coria - 21 (eh, exception)
2004 - Nadal - 18 (first won title)
2005 - Monfils - 18 (first won title)

All the players won in their tournament's debut. In years 2001-2004 finals were played only between Spaniards and Argentines.

Who's the next teen to win - JMDP, Korolev, Chardy?

I will burn

I'm not gonna work there. 1. It's a holiday time and 2. due to uni and some ...ehhh 'September campaign' I cannot be so sure I'll be in Sopot........ that's just a hope

You know they always put to the last moment, I'm sure they haven't assigned contracts with players yet However I was once asked to write some stuff for a tournament's folder before it begins...

Then guess I had better twist a few arms and become a VIP too I will wait for the Entry List and then finally decide. So far I am definately going to Stuttgart in the Summer and one other - just not 100% which the other will be yet!

I thought you were going to Umag with Michelle. Though Umag doesn't have a strong list this year Yeah let's wait for an entry list. I am not sure still if I'm coming but Kasia is already booking a room for her and me...

All would depend on my mood and health for sure, but I love Sopot and I'd love to be there I'd hate to know someone else is a new dancing queen

Last year his manager was assuring us about this... Would be cool if he came ... but anyway the title will belong to one of: Djokovic / JMDP / Korolev Old guys don't win here.

Re: 'Sempre Sopot Thread' - is anyone going?

This year his coach confirmed it, so if nothing unexpected happens, he should come! Winning or not, it's always ~heart-attack experience to watch Gato play... And it's another great thing about Sopot:rookies grabbing their first atp titles there..but lets wait for the 2006 entry list to say sth more..

Re: 'Sempre Sopot Thread' - is anyone going?

The most amusing things about rookies in the final is having 'TV experts' confused who see the faces of finalists for the first time And they think it will not attract enough attention

Hmm, last year I missed seeing Gaudio even walking around the courts (he withdrew in the last moment) but I'd be happy to see him oncourt this year Takuma are you a Gaudio fan (I guess so!)?

Re: 'Sempre Sopot Thread' - is anyone going?

I can't deny it! Really hope to see him there..last year I missed him too, he came only to the press conference to announce his withdrawal..classy. But I like those fresh talented youngsters beating up the 'goldies'..Personally'd like to see Diego Hartfield in Sopot, small chance to c the canadian Dancevic-as he'll most probably chose North American events...Getting itchy to see the players list..

Nothing is definate. We discussed it but only in very vague terms - I think it may be hard for her because of the timing of it I'll keep you informed.

Yeap no chances for Dancevic, that's for sure. Don't know what about artfield but I doubt he'll come to play quallies as well. I think if you want to see him, it'd be more possible to go to Poznań or Szczecin challengers. Quallies last year were very weak, this year going to be stronger perhaps as players will get more encouraged to get into MD.
