In Tenisbrasil website, it said that Bellucci was playing here. I wonder if he'll get a WC, but can't really think of a reason for the organizers to give him one...

Why the hell is Davydenko playing here?

Muster, AHM, who will get the last WC? Almugro, Fiasco or Stan?

Not sure atm. They also talked to Roddick for example before the entry-deadline, then he didn't enter but the organizers still left this WC open for a top guy who changed his mind (or got more appearance fee ;) ) .

Ljubo is out ? Why ?

The surface will have a new color this year due to sponsor change (it will be blue), and the builder Wolfgang Schneider said it would have the same bounce as a well-kept clay court.
Well, that seems like another of these boring slow hard tourneys. Either clay or fast HC please!

Color blue is at least a lot better then the ugly red they had earlier.

Tournament director says: "I still have five really good and famous players I only need to phone. They're all waiting and there are another two even better players I'm waiting for."
Even Novak could still take part, considering many Serbs live in Vienna and he may want some match practice before Basel.

That would be huge. He has won the tournament a couple of years ago, but I doubt it, Wawrinka is a candidate though, he lost early in Stockholm and has been to Vienna before.

Wawrinka is more probable than Nole...I guess Nole won't play before Basel

JMG

He even said he has 5 famous players he would only need to call.

Today at 6pm they'll announce who'll get the 3rd WC.

Gasquet out.

http://www.eurosport.fr/tennis/bank-austria-tennistrophy/2011/gasquet-toujours-forfait_sto2998367/flashnews.shtml

:banghead: It would have been too nice to see him play where I live.

Gasquet, Troicki, Lopez are OUT:

http://www.tennisnet.com/oesterreich/welttennis/herren/Wien-Last-Minute-Wildcard-geht-an-Dominic-Thiem/3024268

And the 2nd WC goes to youngstar Dominic Thiem and AHM goes in directly so a WC is still free.

Edit: Ferrero is also OUT

Sweeting, Petzschner, Blake, Karlovic, Haider-Maurer and Ramos IN

It's not a weak list , it's much worse but there are 5 top 30 player on ATP 250 which its pretty impressive! (not including ATP 250 doha)
