Re: Who is going?

I'm going on Tuesday or Wednesday with my family. Last year was great and I hope it becomes great again.

Re: Who is going?

I'll try to come for at least one weekend. I probably shouldn't take more than a day off work but if possible I want to see the Monday and maybe Tuesday too.

There might be a chance that Safin plays quallies and Guga gets a WC here so there could be some good value for the early days.

Did they ever give a WC to a non-german player?

Re: Who is going?

This year Hamburg has a sunday start. But 2nd Round will start Wednesday only.

I am not sure, as far as I can remember only germans.

Marat playing qualis - hell has to freeze over before that happens... Don't wait for it.

At most they'll give him a Wild Card, but Hamburg tends to only hand them out to Germans (as stated before in this thread) - we'll have to wait and see.

I don't think Guga will even try to get in. He's not fit, so he'll concentrate on a few big tournaments for his farewell, like Miami and RG (and again, also remember the organizer's WC policy...).

BTW, I will be there from Sunday to Sunday.

Yeah - especially since it's the last year (at least as an AMS event)

Guga - really? I was sure it wouldn't happen. Great news!

not sure how definite it is, there was an article about guga playing all AMS up to the French Open, then retire.
But just now I read he wants to play Hamburg OR Rome, so who knows what happens.

Last year Marat was not very popular with the german fans. I remember the stadium emtpying before his match with Massu.
(not talking about the Ferrero match...that was the most horrible night ever, I think)

Hopefully only WCs for German players.

Re: Who is going?

Give it to a player with a German surname and it's all good.

Re: Who is going?

Beck has a wildcard and I think Mayer has a big chance to get one, as he had two good years in Hamburg already.
