Travel problems due to ash cloud

This is getting pretty problematic and probably a few players aren't able to take their planned flights to tournaments. Especially guys who come to Europe from another continent, like Gonzalez, Russell, Falla, Lorenzi, Chela. Anyone knows of any particular players having problems?

I know Dustin Brown said on his website that he is stuck in South-Africa and he had to cancel the Tome challenger.

Russell and Chela are scheduled to play today in Barca so they must have made it. Is Spain one of the countries that has opened its airspace again? There's a guy in my uni dorm that is stuck in Ireland until next week at the earliest so I'm guessing its still pretty bad around the UK.

I guess Barcelona is clear, but the wholo airport logistics in Europe are disturbed because of this. Because air personnel normally travels along the lines, but is now stuck as well.

Sijsling has to fly from Johannesburg to Athens. Don't know if he got problems with his flights.

I guess he will, because Dustin Brown had about the same thing and he can't make it.

Guys who played in Monte Carlo are all going to Barcelona by bus. Now, how much fun do you think they will have riding on a bus for 5 hours. All those Spaniards together? Look out!

Its about 504 km and the roads are pretty packed so its should take at least 8 hours. Feli Lopez, Juan Carlos and David are all already in Barcelona. Nando and Rafa are traveling together. ;)

Rafa will surely have to "compensate" Nando for humilliating him in MC.

According to Murray, there were only 13 main draw players in Athens on Monday.
