Pretty good list with some strange names for a clay court tournament while there are some hard court ones being played the same week like Nishikori or Simon but definitely I will attend some night sessions, SF and F for sure.

Giraldo skipped this tournament again:mad:

Can you confirm that it will be played on clay ?

I remember them talking about switching to hardcourts last year.

Gil will probably have Direct Entrance in this tournament, since he's 3rd alternate, and Robredo is in the list (I'm admiting he will withdraw and that two SE will be cleared). So, direct entrance in the first three tournaments of ATP SA clay-swing! Great opportunity, being out of Top-100. Go Gil!

Indeed strange that Nishikori is here. Also Davis Cup?

Nishikori's coach is Argentine. So that may have something to do with as mentioned in this site. http://www.fuebuena.com.ar/?p=14952

Yes. The whole South American swing is going to be hold on clay in 2012.

Nice list, much better than usual. My two favourite players are here. So glad Nishi chose to play South America. Hope he can develop a strong clay game.

Also can't believe Simon and Wawrinka are here.

ATP 250 doesn't have qualies entry list, so we won't know until Qualifying Draw is out (unless they say that will play)


Seems Facu Bagnis will receive last WC
