To promote the Copa Telmex Martín Jaite has organized a 15´ exho during half-time of the Boca football match this coming Saturday, in the legendary Bombonera stadium, and the two players will be Moya and Gaudio. The small court will be PVC planks laid on the grass, so it will be more like ping-pong than tennis!

i dont sure about that .gil needs to commit to the quali until 21:00 buenos aires time ,his semi match will be at 19:00 (or maybe later ) so i dont think that he has time to commit for the quali ,or maybe he needs to commit to the qualy and if he will win his match he will receive the SE spot ?
but i don't understand this decision ,dabul has very good chances to enter directly without the WC spot ,they could give this spot to leo mayer ,sergio roitman ,maximo gonzalez ,horacio zeballos or seba decoud .

If he wants the SE, it's his.His ability to pack is irrelevent. Only players who are still scheduled to play singles when the qualifying at the next tournament starts are eligible for SE spots.

If there are potential SEs still playing singles at the time of the main draw for the next tournment is held, a placeholder spot will be inserted & be filled either w. the SE player (if the player wins his match) or the next player on the alternate list (if the player loses his match).

wc to roitman :haha:

When I first heard that Dabul was going to receive the WC I thougth that the organizer were giving it to the higher alternate. Then when the SE was cleared I thought that then they were going to give it to Mayer which was the alternate after Dabul but instead they decided for Roitman as he has now better ranking that Mayer and Gonzalez.

IMO they should had give it to Mayer which is they youngest argentine player that can easily reach top 100.

Somebody knows what leaded the decision?
