The worst possible list. No Top-25 players :o
I`ll still go there to see Gasquet, Safin and Ginepri. Hope Dancevic can get in.
Organisers must be shocked :help:

What the fuck are they all playing in Vienna but not in St.Petersburg? I am disappointed :sad:

There is a mistake, Phau is listed twice.

:eek: Gasquet playing St. Petersburg and not Lyon? Why didn't he go to Vienna? :devil:

It seems like St.Petersburg isn't a confortable tournament for players.

Murray won't defend his title ? And Verdasco his semi ? Really strange indeed...

Cheering on Richie, Evgeny, and Jeremy.

the number of points awarded for that tournament stronly decreased with the new ranking system,

and the now strong Asian season changes the focus (same problem as Lyon, Vienna and Moscow).

It's a nice field for a tournament without anyone from the Top 25.

Gulbis is into Vienna and Gil into Lyon. That means Rajeev Ram should get a spot once the SE spots are cleared. Good to see him getting a direct entry here, hope he can do some damage on the singles side here.

Can Kiefer actually get in?

DartMarcus

My coach Nikolay Mishin will probably get a WC into qualies!
Mikhail Elgin must get a WC into main draw.
Other possible candidates: Balmashev, Kudryavtsev, Karusevich, Vovk, Biryukov, Vasenichev..

Can Kiefer actually get in?

if he is healthy... he had a backinjury in Moscow this week... all alternates above him entered all 3 tournaments so he will move up when they decide where they want to play and if there won't be any special exempts eh might get in...
I hope he will play somewhere

best better

Really bad list as well as in Moscow. Nobody wants to go to play in Russia :(

I would easily trade the St. Petersburg list for the one of Vienna. ;)

I guess Gulbis and Gil are both going to Vienna, so Rajeev should play here. He's also playing doubles here, hope his singles go well this time, it's kind of shit lately...

Agreed, he had a lower back injury a few weeks ago but he's looked fine on the doubles court so I'm not sure why he's been so lousy playing singles lately.

Rajeev Ram is in the main draw in Lyon. I guess he and Butorac will sign in on site and play doubles there. Kind of surprising they'd give up the #1 seed in St. Petersburg

Yes, I'd trade both Vienna and Lyon lists for Marat vs Richard match :lol: I'd prefer it to be the final though :sad:
