Olej not playing in Wrocław? How come, the hell????

Maybe if they offer him a WC, he'll go to Wroclaw?

His ranking now isn't good enough, obviously.

I'm almost sure there's a rule that a player who enters a challenger cannot get a wild card to another event

Uhhh... the thing is guys may go play doubles in South America. Pity there aren't the doubles entry lists anymore. Looks like the guys still don't know where they will play.
The new rule about entry list has this bad luck that players might show up at the place and get informed they are too low ranked and can't play

If guys stay in Poland, it is very very very possible both Matka and Fryta will get WC's. But I guess I'll know something more tomorrow when I meet the right people.

Re: Week 6 : Burnie (TASMANIA)

Some Aussie players like Luczak, Guccione and Healey are not playing here. I think they prefer playing qualies from ATPs (Luczak in South America and Guccione and Healey in the U.S.), or maybe this has something to do with Davis Cup. But it's odd, since this is one of the very few challengers they have on home soil, and the field is pretty weak - they could well earn some points here.

It's played when the circuit leaves Australia. These Australian Challengers always feature a poor field, because players refuse to get a jet lag from going back to Australia. I wouldn't go back either. Few points, jet lag, poor preparation for good events.

Re: Week 6 : Burnie (TASMANIA)

I think the Challenger is weak but still improves the quality of the Futures. Normally most of the players will also play the AUS and NZL Futures.

Ok, but I assume that the players I mentioned actually live in Australia, so it shoudn't be a problem for them to stick around for two weeks or so after the Australian Open ends, and then, after this challenger, leave to play the qualies from the ATP tournaments.

And there is also a challenger in Hawaii two weeks earlier, and Hawaii is not so far away from Oceania.

Re: Week 6 : Burnie (TASMANIA)

It's only a small challenger and Guccione won it last year and he needs to play some other events and if the Aussies had any brains Luczak will be in the DC tie against the Swiss, so he isn't sure of which events he is going to play after DC.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Yeah, Luczak can play well on clay, unlike most of the others.

Eitzinger, Rainer AUT 249
Let's hope he's in good enough shape to play *anywhere* that week. Yep, being a fan of Austrians is kind of contagious for me First Jurgen...then Oliver... Marco... Stefan...now Rainer.

Boretti, Stian NOR 414
Remind me why I am on the mainland? The Norwegian hotness has arrived

Good luck to these guys, Johan, and a couple of wayward Aussies
