Champion Croatia to Return - Hosts Need Wildcard

Spain, the United States and defending champions Croatia have qualified in the top three positions for the 2007 ARAG ATP World Team Championship, which will be held at the Rochusclub in Düsseldorf from 20-26 May 2007. Russia, Switzerland, Czech Republic and Argentina, who ended No. 4-7 respectively, will also take their place at the round-robin format competition, based on the combined year-end INDESIT ATP 2006 Race standings of the two best players of each country.

Four-time former champions Germany has finished at No. 11 in the Race to Düsseldorf 2007 - outside of the seven automatic qualification spots. The host nation have celebrated the achievements of Tommy Haas, who finished No. 11 in the INDESIT ATP 2006 Race and won three ATP titles in Delray Beach, Los Angeles and Memphis. But compatriot Nicolas Kiefer (photo) has been sidelined since Roland Garros in May due to a severe wrist injury, which ultimately cost Germany an automatic qualifying berth. Last year's beaten finalists are most likely to be awarded a Wildcard by the ATP and the event's organizers. France (No. 8), 2003-04 titlists Chile (No. 9) and Great Britain (No. 10) will be on standby should one of the qualified teams drops out.

The ARAG ATP World Team Championships, which has been contested at the Rochusclub in Düsseldorf since 1978, features the world's eight best tennis nations. With a squad of three to five players, the eight nations are drawn into two groups of four teams. Every country plays a minimum of three ties, consisting of two singles and one doubles rubber, against all three of the other nations in its group. The leading nation of each group then contests the championship.

The round robin format has also been a staple of the Tennis Masters Cup circuit finale. The ATP recently announced that 12 tournaments would experiment with the format starting with Adelaide in the first week of the 2007 season, with the aim of improving the tournament experience for players, tennis fans, broadcasters and promoters.
