I'd love to know too. Can't find anything saying either way on Veetle's, SAP Open's, or Google News's websites.

Is Johnson still an amateur? Is that why he doesn't take prize money?

I am not sure, but I think that if you are still a student all the money goes to university.

The SAP Open Tennis' website posted an article dated Feb. 7th, explaining who recieved all three wild cards, yet this entry list wasn't updated to reflect this...:confused:

http://www.sapopentennis.com/news/news.asp?story_id=455
"The SAP Open announced today that American Steve Johnson, the 2011 NCAA singles champion from the University of Southern California and a three-time NCAA Team Champion, has been selected to receive the final wild card into the main draw for the 2012 tournament to be played February 13-19 at HP Pavilion at San Jose. In addition to Johnson, American Robby Ginepri and fast-rising American tennis phenom Jack Sock have been selected to receive the other two wild cards.
Australian Lleyton Hewitt, who had accepted a wild card entry into the SAP Open singles main draw, has withdrawn from the tournament due to a severe toe injury."

So severe that he is playing Davis Cup! :lol:

I love these tournaments press releases! :haha:

I love these tournaments press releases! :haha:What's so funny, he has a real toe injury, and starred with the San Jose is on this, because the abrupt transition from grass to hard, can have consequences.

Dude, if he had a severe toe injury, he wouldn't be playing anywhere. I've had a severe toe injury and I couldn't even walk, let alone play tennis. On grass, hard or even on a surface made of cotton!

I've had a severe toe injury too and I TOTALLY dominated in my match on cotton courts. /brag

Here on this, you are here on the forum, ah he the champion, don't compare, because of this injury, he missed a whole year past, and pain continued, so he and his manager know more than you.

If he was severely injured, he wouldn't be playing against China on Davis Cup. Period. Would he be insane to put his whole career in jeopardy (because let's face it, at his age, a serious injury and he's done) if he was severely injured, just to play against freaking China on Davis Cup?

Common sense is required...

This is the typical "I'm playing Davis Cup on the other side of the world, therefore I'm not crazy enough to go play in the following week in some meaningless tournament two days later" injury.

They have listings for it on streaming sites like Wiziwig and LSHunter so even if it's not on Veetle, we should e able to watch.

Monfils is out. :eek:
Kutrovsky versus Strode for a QF berth. Neither has won an ATP match before this tournament :cuckoo:
Actually I don't think either have ever even played an ATP match before this tournament. Its a futures level match :p
