Re: Johannesburg Entry List (T/K)

Re: Johannesburg Entry List (T/K)

Week after a Grand Slam, competing with two other event; it was always going to be a poor entry list. This is however good for RSA based players who can now boost their rankings easier.

Re: Johannesburg Entry List (T/K)

Not great list, but top 3 is really decent and there are also Santoro and Baghdatis
Hope south africans perform well here.

Mardy Fish!

Brian Baker - Steve Johnson - Lleyton Hewitt - Carlos Berlocq - Tommy Haas - Ivo Karlovic - Richard Gasquet - Kevin Anderson - David Ferrer - Michael Russell - Fabio Fognini - Dustin Brown - Somdev Devvarman

Re: Johannesburg Entry List (updated December 29, 2008)

De Voest and Van der Merwe are logical choices, though I think De Voest isn't deserving. He isn't that young and has shown very little progress. Van der Merwe was a shoe-in; he is quite new to the scene and has ample room for improvement too. Obviously both guys will like the surface here.

Raven Klaasen is one to watch in the play-off for the final WC, I guess.

Altogether the field is rather weak, but that was to be expected in the week after the AO, and being held in South Africa, which is kind of a detour on the itinerary of most players. Hope Flavio gets in and does well here

BEMELMANS | CHARDY | CHIUDINELLI
CIPOLLA| ROGER-VASSELIN | MCGEE




Bachinger|Basilashvili|Brands|Broady|Clezar|Cuevas |Eysseric|Giannessi|Gombos

At least some players will finally be able to make use of the South African Airways sponsorship
