KOOYONG COUP – AAMI CLASSIC SIGNS DEL POTRO

Tournament Director, Colin Stubs, announced today that World No. 5 and US Open winner, JUAN MARTIN DEL POTRO, will assume alternate status at Kooyong next January (13-16).

Stubs confirmed seven of his eight-man field last month and, on request, is holding the eighth spot for world no. 1 ROGER FEDERER. “If Roger decides against playing at Kooyong, or another player withdraws before January 13, Juan Martin will step into the field. I am delighted that such strong back-up plans have been put in place” said Stubs.

Good luck to Novak and Marcos

Baghdatis swaps Kooyong for Sydney.

Juan Martin del Potro can be considered a certainty now.

Re: Kooyong Classic (Jan 13-16, 2010)

Tsonga is in doubt for the Australian open due to an injury and therefore it would be unlikely that he would play Kooyong. Even if he does compete in the Open wouldnt he be more likely to rest and relax before the 2 weeks rather than play and exhibition tournament so close to crunch time.

Roger is undecided as well and was goint to wait till Doha to see if he was going to play.

Question is who will they get to replace him and roger at such short notice when everyones pre-Open tournaments are already decided?
