is there a chance that Kiefer gets a WC?

Honestly, I don´t think so! As far as I know Kiefer has never played in Båstad and they normally give the WC´s to Swedish players or other players who are popular in Båstad (like Zabaleta for example). So, it would surprise me lots if Kiefer would get one.

I doubt that Luczak will play here, unless he by some magical chance gets a wildcard for being a semi local. I don't think he will make quallies as he is getting married on the Saturday.

I thought he was getting married the week earlier, maybe Wallen will give the Helsingborger a WC, it would be good if he did.

He was interviewed on Australian Radio the other day, said he gets married 7th July. Don't know where though. But would assume somewhere around where they live. Let's hope he will be considered the local boy by the tournament, but maybe not very likely. But what do you guys think? Do they usually give WC to non superstars, who aren't swedish?

I think he isn't that far outside direct entry, but he won't get it. Well he lives in Helsingborg and he trains with Filip Prpic quite a lot and if Peter asks for a WC this could help him.

They give WCs to non-Swedes, they gave one to Zabaleta cause they love him and Monaco/del Potro got a WC because of that. I just hope Nadal doesn't lose early cause he might want to play here.

As long as Vinciguerra is fit, he will get a WC, as for others, well all we can do is hope.

And yes if Nadal lose in the first week he gets a WC.

As long as it rains for the 1st week and Nadal makes the 2nd week, then he won't play.

http://www.swedishopen.org/News/WC1.aspx?sc_lang=enRyderstedt get the first WC

Swedish Michael Ryderstedt get the first Wild Card to Catella Swedish Open main draw, starting on Monday. Ryderstedt is a member of the talent team, with Catella as a sponsor, and is ranked 281 in the world.

- I have been playing great on the clay the last couple of weeks so I am really happy getting this chance in the right moment but it will be very tough, says Ryderstedt.

Ryderstedt is already prepairing himself in Bastad and has a good self confidence after his semi final in Mamaias challenger a week ago. Ryderstedt has this year reached two semifinals and two quarter finals in Challenger play. 2004 he was a surprised semifinalist in ATP-tournamant Stockholm Open.

Yes, doesnt quite reach 1999's standards when the QFs were Kulti - Puentes-Alcanis, Vinciguerra - Blanco, Ruud - Rodriguez and Marin - Norman.

Cheech Marin winning Båstad, those were the truly golden days and when the event is I will change my avatar to Herr Båstad, otherwise known as Gusten.

They should give a WC to Mantilla.

Why give Mantilla a WC, he has never been coming to Båstad before, always chosen Gstaad.

He has played Båstad before, but you don't think coming back from skin cancer and doing as well as he has is worth it? This is unless he has been guaranteed one in Gstaad.

You should be happy that it's not an MM event anymore.

When did he play Båstad? I have been a part of the tournament since early 90's and can´t remember him being there. But give me the years and I´ll know for the future.

As far as I know he has not applied for a WC and therefore will not get any.

And because players have been through difficult times does not mean that they should be getting WC´s for that reason.
