Donald is lucky his USO points were still there by this tournament. He'll get to play more than one post US Open ATP tourney this year

Klizan should maybe ask here for a WC, if he woulnd´t succeed in Tokyo or Shanghai. By car, Vienna is under and hour from Bratislava and with Del Potro´s possible withdrawal he would be 3rd seeded provisionally.

Gasquet should consider asking for a WC here, it will help his chances to qualify for London.

Brilliant idea, please convince him!:D :D :D

On a more seriosu note: If he does well in Shanghai, he 'll need the week off, though.

Yes, depending on his results in Shanghai but Tipsarevic has entered here, he could have the chance of widening his gap on 9th place with a good tournament IF he is still #9 come end of Shanghai.

Allez Richard! :)

Gasquet might have already accept a Wild Card but the news has not been released! You never know. :lol:

AHM & Fischer WC with those guys I'm almost sure. The third one should get Thiem if it gonna be no international WC for Blake or Hewitt for example.

AHM has already been confirmed and Hewitt is in Stockholm!

i would prefer THIEM instead of FISCHER. and murray is also in talks.. so he would need one WC too

10-11-2012, 08:01 PM
why in the hell would murray want a wild card here?

with the run dominic has made in the challenger this week then i would think he's done enough to warrant that wild card

Fischer got no WC for Main Draw. so still one spot open for a "star" ?

question: could it still be possible for Fischer to get the WC into the MD tomorrow?
