The officilal site says "the winner will get a WC for an ATP-tournament in Germany", so maybe not Hamburg this time. I hope the winner will get a WC for Halle, because it is the only German tournament on a fast surface.

List is updated - Andi Beck and Philipp Hammer are out.

There goes any possible trace of confidence on Florian down the sink.

This tournament has been dominated by the unknown. :S
