River Oaks International 2005

This was in the Houston paper, gives some info about players, the matches, etc.
------------------
Novak is added to mix as No. 2 seed

Roddick will still play; Philippoussis, Young withdraw
By DALE ROBERTSON
Copyright 2005 Houston Chronicle

Defending co-champion Jiri Novak has been added to the River Oaks International field and will be the No. 2 seed when the River Oaks Country Club's 71st tournament starts Monday.

Tommy Haas, once the second-ranked player in the world, is the top seed in the 24-man event. Paradorn Srichaphan will be the third seed, followed by Taylor Dent, Robby Ginepri, Thomas Enqvist, Jeff Morrison and Dmitry Tursunov.

The seeded players will receive first-round byes.

But the tournament has lost two of its top drawing cards in Mark Philippoussis and Donald Young Jr. Philippoussis, the former Wimbledon runner-up whose career has been plagued by physical problems, was hurt again in his opening match in the Nasdaq-100 Open and will be off the court for at least five weeks. Young had to withdraw because of a scheduling conflict.

The last man into the field will be decided at 2 p.m. today when Michael Domanski plays Dusan Vemic in the final round of qualifying.

Novak, ranked 26th to Haas' 17th on the ATP computer, advanced to the final against Hugo Armando a year ago but they were unable to finish because of daylong heavy rains. Armando also returns and will meet Alex Kuznetsov in Monday's featured match at 5:30 p.m. The tournament begins with Brendan Evans vs. Thomas Blake at 1:30 p.m.

Tournament director and River Oaks head pro Van Barry says Andy Roddick's exhibition match against Mardy Fish on Thursday evening will be played as scheduled despite Roddick's having to withdraw from the Nasdaq in the second round last week with a wrist injury.

"I've kept in touch with Andy's people and they've assured me he's OK," Barry said.

Re: River Oaks International 2005

Andy's okay to play an exo match, but not Monte Carlo? Oh, this will be interesting...

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: River Oaks International 2005

Fee, we all know Andy was never gonna play MC. This just gives him a mildly acceptable excuse. Should be good times in GM, though
