Players like: A.U.H.Qureshi, J.Isner, K.Anderson, N.Mahut, K.Nishikori, F.Dancevic

That's the case every year :shrug: But the event is perhaps stronger than Casablanca, in the sense that pretty much only players that know how to play on grass go to Newport, whereas in Casablanca that balance was a bit different.

Mediocre list really. Thats what you get when you cram four tournaments into one week though. Mahut for the title I think.

Strange thing is that he is entered for Indianapolis in the following week but not this weak tournament on grass that he would be one of the favourites for.:confused:

a number one seed has never won this tournament in its' history, so we'll see if mardy can try and break that curse. this is always a great tournament to go to because of the great proximity to the players when you watch in person

ImmzB
06-21-2008, 07:10 PM
A.U.H.Qureshi needs to have a good run like last year, he hasnt had the best starts!!

"CHRIS EATON: Yeah, I'm having a look at the ATP in Newport. That's on the grass, as well."

I attended this event last year, and probably will again this year, and from what I saw last year Isner and Fish will majorly have to step up their game: They were awful!
