Didn't Nalbandian play there last year? I hope he dids this year, the more match practice he gets, the better. :)

Yes Nalbandian has been playing at Kooyong for awhile now.

Really? Have you heard anything?

He would be a great addition.

Ljubicic has been playing here for last few years, so he'll be there

I'm sure Andy will be there again too

Xristos

So far we have Roger, Andy, Ivan, David and Marat. Who do you think the other 4 will be?

Burrow
10-08-2007, 07:41 PM
Berdych is more likely to play than Ljubicic who has been playing very poorly compared to last year.

I hope Murray returns next year, he finished 3rd in 2006.

What are the chances Rafa plays this and skips Sydney?

I think he will play Syd and try and gain as mucg points as he can.

I can't wait for Kooyong, I'll be there for the whole thing. I think Gonzo will play again. He was such a hit with the fans last year, they'd have to get him back again. I don't think we'll get Rafa here like usual. I think we'd be looking to have players who don't play usually in that week. Mabye Djokovic might play since he did an exhibition match there last year, and now his ranking has skyrocketed they'd want him back again. I'm worried about what the field will look like in 2009, I'm hoping the top players won't go to Brisbane instead

Xristos

I think Djoke will play Sydney as well as Moya as he tends to do well there.

Maybe Richie? Murray? Berdych as Safinator has been saying??

The two time defending champ returns!! :D

in it`s in Melbourne the week before AO~ get used to the conditions, stay in the same hotel, see how your game stacks up against other Top-10 players, get some appearance money, same surface as AO etc.:cool:

Yeah it's 3 matches guaranteed, and 4 if you reach the final. And I don't know if this makes a difference, but theres a nice atmosphere in the arena, and I think the players enjoy that too. It's not too packed, so even Federer would enjoy the appeal of there not being too many people.

Fans get to close to the players.

Hopefully I'm i the 09 lineup.

Slim. That would be too intelligent to come straight from Mallorca down to Austrralia, get used to the courts for a few weeks and then play the AO. Im sure that idiot is gonna play Chennai or something, then fly to sydney and play that, and get burnt out in the first month :rolleyes:

Kolya

Will Kolya come back to Sydney after what he said about the tournament?

Looks fine to me. I wish Roddick wasn't playing, his game is just TOO BIG in Kooyong. Not even Federer can touch him on these courts.

It does look like Nadal probably won't be accepting the offer though.

What do you mean? :scratch: Are you referring to the Masters Cup? (which Haas is no means out of at this point)

The Kooyong line-up is invitational and once the line-up has been confirmed, it doesn't change unless if the player decides to pull out themselves.

Yeah why not, that would be much better. Remove Ljubicic and replace him with Ferrero, and then it would be excellent, not that it won't be good anyway.

And yes I agree Xristos, BRING ON RAFA!!!
