iNFO OF PLAYERS ETC:
sILVY

The 32nd edition of the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament will again live up to its status as a top tournament. With no less than four top-10 and 22 top-35 players, the tournement boasts an exceptionally strong draw. Earlier today, Tournament Director Richard Krajicek announced the final tournament line-up, which includes late entrants Guillermo Coria and Juan Carlos Ferrero.

Guillermo Coria is one of the most striking players on the list. The Argentinean, who currently ranks 7th in the world, has won all of his eight tournament victories on gravel. In addition to winning in Buenos Aires and Monte Carlo during 2004, Coria came very close to taking his first Grand Slam title at Roland Garros. In the event, he was unable to match his fellow countryman Gaston Gaudio during the final. Having reached last year’s final in Rosmalen, the 22-year old has fond memories of the Netherlands.

Although Juan Carlos Ferrero played extremely well during last year’s tournament, he was unable to ward off Australian Lleyton Hewitt during a scintillating three-set final, which some consider the best in the history of the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament. On his way to the final, Ferrero faced tough opposition from Dennis van Scheppingen, John van Lottum, Raemon Sluiter and defending champion Max Mirnyi. Plagued by a series of injuries, Ferrero has since slipped to 31st place in the world rankings. The Spaniard is nevertheless fully recovered and eager to improve on last year’s performance.

Roger Federer again heads the list of seeds. The Swiss, whose name has appeared at the top of the ATP ranking for some time, had an excellent season in 2004, winning an astounding eleven tournaments, including the Australian Open, Wimbledon and the US Open. Federer ended the year by securing the Tennis Masters Cup in Houston. The Swiss is a regular participant in the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament, which remains one of the best attended men’s indoor International Series Gold tournaments on the ATP Tour.

Other top-10 players to compete for the ‘Wim Buitendijk Trophy’ between Monday 14 February and Sunday 20 February include Tim Henman (Eng), David Nalbandian (Arg), former top-10 players such as Sébastien Grosjean (Fra), Nicolas Kiefer (Ger), Paradorn Srichaphan (Tha), Thomas Johansson (Swe) and Rainer Schuettler (Ger) and well-known competitors like Tommy Robredo (Spa), Dominik Hrbaty (Slo), Mikhail Youzhny (Rus), Andrei Pavel (Rom), Ivan Ljubicic (Cro), Feliciano Lopez (Spa), Nikolay Davydenko (Rus), Mario Ancic (Cro) and Radek Stepanek (Cze).

The list of players making their debut in Rotterdam is also extensive, and includes Coria, Nalbandian, Joachim Johansson (Swe - ranked 11th in the world), Taylor Dent (US), Robin Soderling (Swe), Florian Mayer (Ger), Fernando Verdasco (Spa) and Michael Llodra (Fra). Taylor Dent is the first American to enter the tournament since Richey Reneberg, who played in 1998.

Thomas Schuettler, who currently ranks 42nd in the world, brings up the rear.

WILD CARDS
Sjeng Schalken and Raemon Sluiter have both been awarded a wild card for the main tournament. Schalken (28) has been playing top-level tennis for over 10 years, and previously ranked 11th in the world. The Dutchman had an injury-prone season in 2004, and was beaten by Raemon Sluiter during the second round of the 31st ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament. Sluiter (26) went on to play Juan Carlos Ferrero in the quarter finals, losing 12-10 in the tiebreak of the third set. The Dutchman, who will again play in front of a home crowd, lost the 2003 final to Max Mirnyi. Tournament Director Richard Krajicek will allocate the third (and final) wild card shortly before the tournament.

QUALIFYING TOURNAMENT
The qualifying tournament, during which 16 players will compete for the last four places in the main tournament, will take place on 12 and 13 February 2005. Karan Rastogi (India) and Jesse Huta Galung (Neth) have already received a wild card. Tournament Director Richard Krajicek also has a third (and final) wild card to allocate for the qualifying tournament, which will start at 10.00 on both days. Entrance fee: EUR 8 per ticket, per day.

Tickets for the main tournament and the qualifying tournament are available from the Ahoy’ Rotterdam box office. Tickets can also be reserved by telephone 0900 2352469 - € 0.45 p.m.) or via Internet (www.abnamro.nl/wtt)

I'm glad that the rumours I heard about him pulling out aren't true :)

jtipson
01-31-2005, 11:58 AM
Tournament websites are notorious for not updating any pull-outs. If Roger does decide not to play, they'll probably leave it as late as possible before announcing it, otherwise it will hit ticket sales.

Roger doesn't have much to gain by playing Rotterdam, because he's already got 5 wins in his optionals. He'd only get 75 entry points if he won, and nothing if he failed to win. He's better off defending Dubai.

I don't mean to depress anyone and say he will pull out, but you can see that it's not necessarily in his interest to play here, particularly if he needs more time to recover from the AO.

Well, we will have to wait. Those are the news but are not the lastest BUT are the ones at the official site.
I think CORIA wont play cos he has to rest 20 days after his lession playing with Nalbandian. But for Roger, I have no news.
Lets see what will happen, maybe some of our pals in switzerland has fresh news, or will have soon. Nothing about it at the RF official site

There are good reasons to play and good reasons to withdraw. Coming out strong in Rotterdam would silence all the doubters (mainly in the writing profession) immediately, not playing it would give more time to rest and regroup.

I hope Federer can win this tournement, with some wins over top 10 players along the way, to silence the doubters. Its amazing how some fans react over one loss. Its one loss, people. Federer is still far and away the best player in the world.

We all know that, but unluckily we still have to endure such shit from other fans and the jump-on-the-bandwagon media. Why are we surprised :o Roger really doesn't need to win Rotterdam to prove himself, again what else Roger need to prove though? Having said that, I'd more than love to see Roger win another title as soon as possible, to keep my eyes from such shit, though I really shouldn't care much.

I actually see Roger will withdraw from Rotterdam, for good reasons, which surely depresses me, but it's more important that he come out in full shape next time before he picks up his racquet again.

From Roger's site:

Dear fans

I would like to thank you for the immense number of comments on the Australian Open. Having been defeated so close to reaching the final, including having had a match-ball certainly hurts. On the other hand it is great to have gone that far already.

I have nevertheless had a very good start into the new season and there are many important tournaments yet to come. I am now thoroughly enjoying a few days at home. It is a very welcome break with my family and friends before heading off to Rotterdam.


It sounds that Roger will probably go to Rotterdam :) I hope Roger doesn't overdo himself. He just has to make sure he is fully fit before playing again.

It was a contest on the radio. It is quite complicated to explain, really. In the morning show they announced two streets in Rotterdam where there would be two blocks of ice, in which a question was hidden. This question was multiple choice. You had to SMS the correct answer and then in the evening show they picked two winners. Well, they picked before the evening show and recorded the phone conversation I had. And the played that just a quarter of an hour ago. I am really lucky I won, but I did send a lot of SMS :D

It will be on Valentine's Day, February 14th, which is a Monday.

carol said she wasn't sure if she would be successful in handing the envelope to Roger, but she will try her best, at least with Martijn & yvo, they are assured of meeting Roger.

our representatives from mtf... ;) who cares if Roger gets many red envelopes? he's so famous now everyone should give it a shot as he's more difficult to access. i was lucky i gave him several, from Gstaad, Bern, Basel, DC. Doris gave him one in Gstaad too, and tschaeggy & her gave it to his mom in Basel. ;)

i think you should just write your own personal message and tell Roger what you feel about him. he would certainly appreciate reading it and seeing his online fans grow... ;) pm it to Martijn. the more, the merrier!

i will be in Basel again in October and i can take another red envelope.

i am also going to Gstaad but i don't think Roger will be there this year.

I just got the message that I will have two 'press passes' for the qualifying event in Rotterdam. This basically means that I can watch the practising as well and will be able to take better pictures from there. Since Roger doesn't play an event the week before, I have no doubt that I will be able to see him practising those days, before the Meet & Greet takes place.

I am taking Yvo (Legolas) with me for those days too, so I think you can expect quite some great pictures :D

You can watch the matches on the Net! I don't know if someone has posted already - my apologies if so -, but from Roger's site:
Posted: Mon 14 Feb, 2005 11:02 pm Post subject: Watch Rogers matches!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

U can watch Rogers matches in Rotterdam (in replay):

-go to http://www.abnamrowtt.com/
-go to the DUTCH site, not the english
-go to IN BEELD
-go to OP TV/FILMARCHIEF, on the left side
-click on the matches u want to see, probably its a day later (live or short coverage).

Roger will not play before wednesday, so probably thursday u can watch his matches!
Only on the Dutch site u can watch videos, also his opening of the tournament on the HOME site.

PS the quality of the match depends on the quality of ur internet

Oh this Roger practise with all the guys he can! Thats good. I wonder how do they set a practise. Hello, do you want to practise with me today??

What time is in Rotterdam now, Mart?? 6 pm??? Im trying to find out to see if theres a small chance to try to see the game IF Tyc Arg decides to show it.
Guess they wont... any french tv will show it? Cos I have a friend that maybe can tape it for me
Let me know if you have time

The scoreboards don't work for me either. I can't even see who plays against whom. Strangely enough, the statistic parts work for me, but it is quite akward to guess the score from this;)

Good luck, Roger, keep it short;)

Stupid star sports...I'm used to their live coverage being few minutes lates, and now I have the sound/commentators come faster than the action itself, and I know how the point ended before it was even played :retard:

5-2 yes!

Rogi...40-0 to 40-40 :o This Bohdan is actually quite good, ah another return of serves winner from him

lsy
02-16-2005, 06:26 PM
Finally an ace to get the set :o Don't know what's his first serves % must be quite bad, only one game his serves was decent.

I have to say it's not easy for Rogi, Odahn is running Rogi left to right and made him hit many extra shot to win a point.

Yeah, he is a dangerous floater- I remember how annoying it was to watch him playing Sampras- Pete always struggled against him. Indian Wells 1997 will haunt me forever :tape: :tape: :tape:

Well done Rogi :yeah:

Not the cleanest match from what Lsy described but the main thing is he got the job done.

02-16-2005, 08:21 PM
Well, Rogi better step it up here and beat his compatriot in straights also. Stan's win over Seb was a significant one for him so he'll be feeling confident.

Sloppy play fr Rogi fr what I hear... he needs to clean up his game and cut down those nasty UEs... once again, Rogi!!!

This tournament is losing seeds quickly....4 of the 8 already gone (Hrbaty, Coria, Nalby & F.Lopez).

From the remaining field I see only the big servers (Ancic, J.Johansson, Ljubicic) & Henman will pose a problem.

I'm just in a bad mood now cos the Spaniards are truly sucking these days... Juanqui, Alex, Feli, Fernando... Carlos, well, he's just lying on a beach before Acapulco and I don't really care about him for the moment... only Gaston and Marat are doing well... it's all rather disappointing! :p :rolleyes:

So, ROGI, don't be too nice to Stan, OK? He's got plenty of time to shine! :angel:
