Junaid, Feeney, Lindahl weren't selected for the playoff in favour of these junior boys?

Thanks, but that entry list is stupid. I guess merit isn't rewarded by Tennis Australia.

JUAN CARLOS FERRERO


Juan Monaco, Tommy Robredo, Fernando Gonzalez, Juan Martin Del Potro, David Ferrer, Guillermo Garcia Lopez, Juan Ignatio Chela, Fernando Verdasco, Carlos Moya, Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Lucas Arnold Ker, Nicolas Lapentti

Re: AO Wildcard Play-off: December 15-21, 2008

lol this entry list cannot be serious can it. If it is I am worried. Why the hell didn't they select Coehlo, he is in tremendous form and is still young. Is it because these guys didn't sign up and that is why the fourth spot is the highest ranked player to sign in?

It appears as thought they are on the entry list though which makes the decision not to select Coehlo and Lindahl astounding. Perhaps someone needs to inform Tennis Australia that things such as that get published on April Fools Day and not in December. I honestly cannot believe that this is the selected field.
