Not a great list, but hard to do it when there are 3 clay events competing at the same time.

it's the best list this week :p

It's no better than Stuttgart and how can it not be impacted when they have 3 excellent events competing at the same time.

Also it's a 28 field, whereas last year when it was a proper 32 field, the cutoff was higher at the last spot, than it is with the 19th player in Gulbis.

Therefore the list isn't as good as last year for obvious reasons.

WC for Qualies for Daniel Berta

WC playoff

Resultat Onsdag
Tim Göransson – Patrik Brydolf 6-3, 6-0
Christian Lindell - Daniel Berta 6-7, 6-2 10-8 (matchtiebreak)
Michael Ryderstedt – Christian Lindell 6-2, 6-0
Ervin Eleskovic – Patrik Brydolf 6-1, 6-2

- Det kändes bra och jag har inte haft så stora problem att ställa om från konstgräs som jag spelade på i Challengern i början av veckan eftersom det bara blev en match och ett par dagar. Tycker att jag kontrollerade matchen men får inte slappna av då det avgörs i matchtiebreak. Slarvar amn en stund och tappar set blir det tight, sa Ryderstedt efter sin seger.

- Jag har spelat rätt bra en period och fått bra matcher på bra nivå i challengerturneringar. Jag kan känna igen mig i de yngre killarnas agerande. Patrik försökte slå stenhårt med sin forehand varje gång och den är bra när den sitter men misstagen blir för många, sammanfattade Eleskovic som spelar en ren gruppfinal imorgon förmiddag mot Tim Göransson.

Program torsdag
Centercourten kl 10.15 Michael Ryderstedt - Daniel Berta
Bana 1 kl 10.15 Ervin Eleskovic - Tim Göransson

Gruppvinnarna möts i en ren final klockan 15.00 där vinnaren får ett WC till nästa veckas ATP-turnering.

Pashanski should be out in Båstad, as he is in in Gstaad, or?

Coria will play here, because Marat won't play next week for sure! And Schuettler (the only possible SE) will go to Stuttgart if he wants to play anywhere.

Marat said in a swedish newspaper after he reached the SF at Wimbledon that he will play Båstad for sure, even if he now plays so well in Wimbledon :) So I am sure he will come :)

Well, he said that his return was possible in Bastad, and sure in Cincinnati. That is possible that he is present at Bastad, wait :)
