Week after a Grand Slam, competing with two other event; it was always going to be a poor entry list. This is however good for RSA based players who can now boost their rankings easier.

First WC to De Voest
2nd to Van der Merwe
and there will be a 4 player playoff for the final WC!!!

Not great list, but top 3 is really decent and there are also Santoro and Baghdatis:)
Hope south africans perform well here.

De Voest and Van der Merwe are logical choices, though I think De Voest isn't deserving. He isn't that young and has shown very little progress. Van der Merwe was a shoe-in; he is quite new to the scene and has ample room for improvement too. Obviously both guys will like the surface here.

Raven Klaasen is one to watch in the play-off for the final WC, I guess.

Altogether the field is rather weak, but that was to be expected in the week after the AO, and being held in South Africa, which is kind of a detour on the itinerary of most players. Hope Flavio gets in and does well here :D

pretty surprised Johannesburg native Odesnik isn't here, even more as his ranking would have guaranteed him a main draw spot

Crivoi :rocker:

Quite happy Marco didn't sneak in with his PR; it's better used in some other event. Here he really should qualify quite handily.
