Lee, Hyung-Taik KOR 87
Lu, Yen-Hsun TPE 129
Peya, Alexander AUT 135
Udomchoke, Danai THA 149
Wang, Yeu-Tzuoo TPE 164
Chiudinelli, Marco SUI 191
Suzuki, Takao JPN 199
Kunitsyn, Igor RUS 220
Amritraj, Prakash IND 261
Motomura, Gouichi JPN 268
Iwabuchi, Satoshi JPN 269
Vico, Uros ITA 279
Bastl, George SUI 285
Stepanek, Martin CZE 286
Klec, Ivo GER 293
Bruthans, Victor SVK 299
Kim, Young-Joon KOR 308
Iwami, Tasuku JPN 313
Kutsenko, Vadim UZB 326
Adaktusson, Jacob SWE 331
Mankad, Harsh IND 338
Cha, Bo Ram KOR 363
Masik, Jan CZE 369

Chen, Ti TPE 389
Kato, Jun JPN 407
Ivanov, Pavel RUS 413
Slanar, Martin AUT 429
Wiltschnig, Herbert AUT 445
Matsui, Toshihide JPN 462

Unless there were any withdrawals late friday evening, Bopanna is the last direct entry in the main draw. I believe every one of the top 16 or so Asian players, except Paradorn and Aisam Qureshi are in the list!

Perhaps the BEST assembly of top Asian players that has EVER happened anywhere!

There was one more withdrawal after the qualifying draw was made. For the organizer's sake, I will hold back the name of the guy who withdrew. Now, Ti Chen (who was in the qualifying draw) has made the main draw as the last one.

Sorry for the late reply. Here is the address -

BUSAN 609 370
TEL: (82) 51 503 4191
FAX: (82) 51 503 4194

The official hotel is Hotel Nongshim. If nothing works, you should be able to find somebody who speaks English at the hotel who can direct you to the courts I suppose.

Lu is on 8-wins streak after win at Tasmania last week.
Another title will lift him to the brink of top-100 and can get him direct entry to RG!!

04-03-2004, 03:18 PM
Make it 9 wins in a row for Lu ..

Singles semi:

(1) Yen-Hsun Lu d. (3) Danai Udomchoke, 62 63
(2) Alexander Peya d. (7) Igor Kunitsyn, 61 57 76(1)

Doubles semi:

Iwabuchi-Iwami d. (3) Lu-Udomchoke, 63 75
Ratiwatana-ratiwatana d. Matsui-Onoda 64 46 64

The finals are on Sunday.


04-03-2004, 05:52 PM
Lu up to #110. Win in final will lift him to #103.

If he has no points to defend next week he might move further up even though he doesn't play (Davis cup), and get direct entry to RG. Harel Levy who ranks at #102 will lose 20 pts from Estoril, and I presume there are other players in the 90-110 range who might lose points.

04-04-2004, 08:35 AM
If the website's quick update of the score is no wrong (they have made some mistrakes a couple of times this week), Peya beat Lu 63 57 63 ..


04-04-2004, 03:27 PM
(4)Sanchai Ratiwatana/Sonchat Ratiwatana (THA) d. Satoshi Iwabuchi/Tasuku Iwami (JPN) 6-7(5),7-6(1),6-4 :D :D :D
