Why is he out then?

Pretty bad field without him...

Del Potro will be focusing on Basel wich is an ATP500 while Vienna is ATP250.

Horrible field for Vienna :o Not even one Top 12 player. With the prices they are charging, there are going to be a lot of empty seats.

Cilic replaces Del Potro.

Ernests in Lyon and Vienna draw :) Lol When will he actually decide which one to go in?

Dustin Brown will show up here. :yeah:

I'm almost sure Kubot/Marach will play in Vienna bcuz maybe Oliver will ask for QS or MD WC so if he makes it they will play doubles here so Kubot will play qualys here aswell.

Andreas Vinciguerra will be in the Qualify draw here.

Cilic does know that he cannot gain points here? What is the point of wasting energy? :o

...is he getting a massive appearance fee or something?

Strangely enough I had troubls getting three tickets next to each other for QF day reasonably close to the court.

But you are right, it will be rather empty. Companies buy the tickets, give them to their tennis-ignorant clients who don't care to show up. It has been the same for a long time.:o

However, I will enjoy my days there nevertheless. :)

It's obvious that Cilic didn't commit before the deadline, because he wanted to wait for big money offers from the three tournaments. He took the full financial advantage of Del Potro's withdrawal.

Then again, he can't gain any points in playing this tournament...

cilic got the WC

what's your source for that ?

(same question for the fact that you mentioned he had the WC for Basel as well)

Then again, he can't gain any points in playing this tournament...

next january, after his points from Chennai drop off, he will be able to count his points from Vienna in the rankings.

he has Chennai then Zagreb dropping off very early next year : he needs to play to replace them.

What's the reason for Berdych's withdrawal ?

Cilic isn't a star. Why should any of the tournaments offer him big money to participate? Do you think he can draw big and sell tickets? I don't think so.

Kiefer is also out because he is in in Lyon. So Kubot is first alternate? I hope so much that Kubot can get into MD without playing qualies!

JMG
10-22-2009, 04:59 PM
They are trying to get one of Davydenko, Söderling, Haas, Robredo and Verdasco for the third wc.

Yes, if a big player withdraws like it happened in Vienna, Cilic is obviously one of the best alternatives to replace the big player. Vienna also has a lot of Croatians, so of course he will sell some tickets.

Haas could get a WC because he lacks matches. Davydenko and Soderling won't play ofcourse, they need the rest for the big tournaments coming up.

Vienna will be on bwin. :bigclap:

smucav, Hajek is in or out?

he's on green colour in the first post but you wrote "out"

Montego

Great to finally see Kubot as a direct main draw entry :yeah: (first time ever if I remember correctly)

Vienna is like a "home" tournament for him, hope he gets a beatable draw and advances to the Top100 (although it will be tough looking at the entry list)

CooCooCachoo
10-24-2009, 12:36 AM
Tough? The entry list is quite poor, Kubot has every chance to win a few rounds.

not first time but first time since Tokio 2007 ;-)
It's his 20th MD in Tour or GS, 8th in this season (always as qualifier). :wavey:
