I guess Blake decided not to play his home tournament. Probably a smart move with the Olympics the week before, although I'm still (selfishly) disappointed.

Not a bad list seeing the Olympics happen the week before.

Ljubo here :eek::eek:

I guess he will play because he'll probably miss the Olympics and he gotta have some matches before the USO.

No good americans, because only the top 4 American Ranked players are all at the olypmics, and Andy has never played the week before a major as long as I can remember. This is still a great list. Anne Worcester did a terrific job of getting great international players and hopefully all of connecticut will show up and watch some terrific tennis. I know I will be there.

It's selfish of me but I hope Viktor doesn't make it in because I'd be able to get up to New Haven for quallies but not for main draw :rolls:

YAY!! Eduardo Schwank, Igor Andreev, Albert Montanes and Robin Haase there, wow!! Oh and I certainly should not forget Fernando Verdasco! I'd expected Lopez here too.. :S Maybe he still comes :D

Spadea is far away from making it, and hates qualies. He will probably play a challenger or go strait to NY city.

Regular international series tournaments don't have qualy entry lists. The qualy draw should come out tonight, though.
