This list actually seems slightly better than it was in previous years. A little more depth than usual. Good opportunity for all of these guys.

list seems to be even worse than in the last years, when they had monfils and ferrer.

The big names may not be there, but this year there are over a dozen top 100 players, and the guys out of the top 100 are near that range and good players. In previous years the entry lists were Newport like.

They'll both be in Chile that week, starting the Golden Swing. I hope Gil does better in South America in 2011 than last year!

But if they entried here, they had more probability to go deep. This is a Hardcourt list in a clay tournament...

Wow, Sijsling and Huta Galung in a ATP 250 without qualifying or wild card. First time that happens I guess.

One of the worst entries ever in a 250 tournament; Lalo Lopez and Lu 1st two seeds, and Jeremy wannabe a tennis player Chardy 3rd seed, just horrible

the entry list makes the tournament bad enough but if tipsarevic or lopez..or even mannrino, dancevic or shuettler dont win the whole thing it'll be a joke

why Dimitrov is out? This was a good chance to get some cheap points.

He is suspended by ATP not to play any ATP and Challengers events for 3 weeks starting January, 3rd (Helsinki incident).

Just for everyone's info this is played at the highest altitude of any ATP event of the year. I highly doubt they would be using the Wilson US Open ball for at that altitude it would bounce out of the stadium and be incredibly hard to control. More than likely its the special Altitude Tretorn ball that was used in the USA /Columbia Davis Cup Tie in September played at high altitude on the red clay. It gets dead very quickly but takes some getting used to. I'm not sure , though, if that's what they use - maybe Wilson has a special Altitude ball.

As for the surface Im guessing Plexipave Indian Wells , which is very slow, but Im not sure as again Ive never found verification and no one seems to know
