This might be the best MM event of the year.
Just like last year, without me.

edit - of course, Bastad is better, but Bastad has a better timing.

Tournament director gave 6 names and 3 players of them will get WC to MD. The list is:
Łukasz Kubot
Michał Przysiężny
Dawid Olejniczak
Grzegorz Panfil
Marcin Gawron
Błażej Koniusz

If I were tournament director I would give WC's to Przysiezny , Olejniczak and Gawron.

Let's hope Kubot and Panfil won't get WC... :rolleyes:

qualies or he will ask for WC ?

Nathaliia
07-02-2007, 11:46 AM
He shouldn't have problems with getting a WC, IMO. Winner, semifinalist and defeated by a Pole. Everything speaks for him.

unfortunately, Coria won't play in Sopot :sad:

(...) [Coria] will not get to play the present European brick dust tour, in which it won, for four seasons, three matches ATP in consecutive form (Stuttgart, Kitzbühel and Sopot) (...)

Wojtek: I'm not surprised that there are no signs of approaching IPO, because the tournament is called OPO :p
And seriously, they will manage :)It's only Sunday today... I think last year they started preparations the last week before the tournament too.

WC #1 - Łukasz Kubot
WC #2 - Michał Przysiężny
WC #3 - not sure yet, Dawid Olejniczak or Grzegorz Panfil or Marcin Gawron will get it(depends on Poznan CH results)

Just wanted to let you know that Jarkko has not withdrawn from Sopot! At least not yet. I've seen on stevegtennis.com that somebody posted that news, maybe that person knows Jarkko personally and knows that he plans to withdraw, but it's not official yet so maybe we shouldn't mourn :p

Jarkko injured his right thigh (muscle tear) in Davis Cup action over the weekend (couldn't play the important 4th rubber) and will be sidelined for 2-3 weeks. :sad: He has withdrawn from here and tries to come back in Montreal.

kataanna

Thanks for the info! Wish it was a little better :sad: Hope Jarkko gets better soon! And maybe he won't get injured next year, because we miss him here :)

Unfortunatelly, there will be less boys to be beaten up by Argentinos :(

ps. I'm already in Sopot... well, in Reda actually, but Emilia and I are going to Sopot in an hour or so. At the moment, the weather is fine, so let's hope it will stay like that for the whole next week.

Dijus, remember to go to bed early today ;) I dzięki za pozdrowienia :)

Gaudio already is in Sopot :) So I guess he will play quallies eventually :banana:
He ate dinner with his coaches, drank cola only and went early to bed ;) Also, he looked quite happy today. Unfortunately, he still prefers the same hairstyle :rolleyes:
Argies from Kitzbuhel are coming tomorrow, so that's all for today...
In a minute I shall post a pic ;)

It was already raining near Sopot a few moment ago, but it stopped quickly. Don't know how the quallies will look like.

I think that Florian Mayer must do well here. I won´t be satisfied if he won´t get
to the Semifinals.He played like chicken against Starace in Kitzbühel leading 6-4,6-5
serving for the match and lost the match.Though Flori made nice comeback from 1-4 down
in the 2nd set.Florian should be more aggressive and self-confident on decising moments.
I know it´s tough out there nowdays but German players should someone step up.
Tommy Haas is soon history.

Kolya
07-27-2007, 10:24 AM
Yes, Mayer needs to do well or he is going to lose some points.

OUT Hernandez IN Vassallo Arguello

A few players from quallies: Brzezicki (a very very nice guy with a very nice girlfriend, he even made sure my pic was taken right), Maximo Gonzalez, Dracis, Pashanski, Junqueira, Ivo Minar...

Massu is here too, as well as Zabaleta and Vliegen. Probably some others too but sleeping after the trip.

Olej told some other player that he won't get the wc eventually, but we don't know if he was joking or not. It sounded serious, thoug :shrug: But if that's true, maybe they want to give it to Gato... We'll see after the draw is made tonight.

Kidnicky - thanks :) I'm sure I'll have a great time :)

I'm pissed off that my Argies are all in the same part of the draw :(
I'm afraid Gato will lose to Darcis :(
13 WC's for the Poles without rankings... that's a joke... but well, any guys to be beaten up are welcome :devil:

Brzezicki is becoming more and more popular here. Today a man was asking Emilia and me what's his name because he liked his game very much :cool: (it was after Brzezicki's training session with M. Gonzalez). We were almost shouting his name to the guy, because he was probably a little deaf or maybe Juan Pablo was just too hard for him... It was funny though.
I'm off to bed as there will be almost no sleep from tomorrow on.

I hope I'll manage to write something in next days too (read: won't be too tired). Fortunately, I have a computer with the Internet access at a place I'm staying at.
Massu was so tired yesterday after the trip, but he should be ok by his first round match :)

wtf, what happened to the king?

We were wondering too :devil:

Anyways, a very funny draw ceremony today. Massu and Przysiężny were the lucky ones to be there. Asked about whom does he want to play Przysiężny said: Kubot...
We couldn't help expressing our happines when Kubot was left for Robredo :angel:

Massu and his coach/sparingpartner got lost twice today and didn't know how to get back to the hotel. It's their first time in Sopot and on the weekends there are plenty of tourists so it wasn't easy to find the way :P

The matches... lol at all those double bagles and 60 61 results :p

I like the draw though, and I'm only unhappy with Zabaleta - Almagro (thank Emilia) and Lapentti - Andreev...

Doubles draw looks ok, at least Gaudio won't go home after he loses in 3rd round of quallies :angel:
