WCs to Gaudio, Puerta and Coria!!!

NyGeL

Gaudio will get a WC for sure, and Puerta could get another one.

I don't see Coria playing this year, unless he makes something better at previous tournaments (Viña ATP ex.)

I would prefer watching Guga if he is fit to play :)

Coria posted in his foro and he said he'll start in Vina, then Costa do sauipe and here he will decide if he plays bs as or not...it depends of his results there....

David :worship:, Chela :kiss:, Pico :D, Agustín :hearts:, Chucho :cool:

No Hartfield and Del Potro :sad:

Gastón confirmed he's using one of the WCs :yippee:

After Viña I would prefer Coria receiving a WC instead of Gaudio...

GustavoM_Fan
01-31-2008, 05:00 AM
hopefully Polaco Brzezicki can enter in the MD... :)

Coria and Gaudio will receive WC

about the 3rd WC:
Zabaleta is not showing results this year to give him a WC

Schwank have tennis to deserve a WC here.. hopefully he wont feel the pressure of winning his 1st ATP Match like he did in Costa do Sauipe 2007 and Viña 2008 (yesterday he lost to Gimeno-Traver)

Marcaccio receiving a WC will win the tournament by sure. :worship:

Nalbandian I think should take the title, but the competetion is fierece.

Acasuso/Hood receives a WC for doubles.

This will be Hood's first tournament after suspension.

Coria cant get the SE spot, since he hasnt signed up for the tournament. WCs should go to Puerta, Coria and Schwank now.

Nico Lapentti can get SE spot

maybe Coria doesnt play here
http://www2.uol.com.br/tenisbrasil/profissional/brasil_open/ult677u654.htm

"Agora vou pro Marrocos disputar alguns challengers, tenho mais chance de vencer por lá e ficar bem preparado para Roland Garros. Descarto jogar em Buenos Aires por causa da pressão, mas ainda vou ver isso com o meu agente", disse o argentino.

translation: apparently he will go to play some challengers in Morocco (to get confidence and be ready to Roland Garros), and wont play in ATP Buenos Aires but he is not so sure about this yet.


so I imagine that the WC will go to Zabaleta (charismatic guy), Puerta (RG2005 finalist) and Schwank (future argentinian star)

if Schwank wins tomorrow (play QF vs Lapentti in Costa de Sauipe) = he gets the SE

so the remaining WC go to : Machi Gonzalez ,Leo Mayer or maybe Nico Lapentti (QF in Costa de Sauipe this week) or Pablito Cuevas

(2 SE Spots to be cleared)
OUT: Canas (and Cipolla, Zib, Gil, Economidis from ALT)
IN: Brzezicki
NEXT: Vanek, I. Minar, Zabaleta, Patience, Lapentti, Cuevas

Inefable
02-15-2008, 03:36 PM
Coria will not play. F*ck

Gaudio not sure.

Nalbandian,Roitman,Berlocq and Vassallo !!

WC should be for Schwank (if he doesn´t get SE), Kuerten and Puerta. If Schwank get it, the other WC should be given for young argies, Mayer, Gonzalez, Pella, etc.
Zabaleta doesnt diserve one WC because q he playing horrible.

Winner of Schwank - Lapentti will get one SE (so just 1 SE spot to be cleared after today)
Vamos Lapentti ;)
