Hey all :)

The Allianz Suisse Open in Gstaad has always been one of the biggest clay tournaments after Roland Garros, and with the players on the commitment list at the moment, the reputation will surely be maintained:

- Federer, Roger (SUI)
- Ferrero, Juan Carlos (ESP)
- Novak, Jiri (CZE)
- Schüttler, Rainer (GER)

They also made a shortlist containing players that are likely to receive the wildcards (they haven't received one yet, that is):

- Allegro, Yves (SUI)
- Bastl, George (SUI)
- Chiudinelli, Marco (SUI)
- Corretja, Alex (ESP)
- Heuberger, Ivo (SUI)
- Kratochvil, Michel (SUI)
- Lammer, Michael (SUI)
- Rosset, Marc (SUI)
- Wawrinka, Stanislas (SUI)

He should be! Don't see what could prevent that from happening ;)

The only thing that could prevent that from happening would be for Roddick to win Roland Garros and then enter this tournament on a wild card.

If that happens then the porcine airport will be opening shortly.

Guys, who's going to be there, in Gstaad? I'm going there for a day for sure, but I don't know what day exactly yet and will only know a week before it or maybe even later :( and is it really hard to get tickets?

if you go on Wednesday (if you're female) then you'll pay only half. Or call their hotlines, i'm sure you could get a ticket in no time.

i'll be there Monday, and Saturday, for the semis. Hope the weather is good like last year.

Thanks a lot! I know about women's day :) the thing with the tickets is that I don't speak german or french so I gonna need english hotline - hope they have one. But the main problem is that I have no idea when I'm having a day off and when I'll be able to go :)

Last year was far too hot to play tennis :) But at least it wasn't raining.

you shouldn't have problems calling them Genitch, as they also speak English. if you know which day you're going, call them, make some reservations, and pick up the tickets and pay it at the counter by the entrance.
