Hahaha maybe about no Argies in R2.

How could a field with the King, Chucho, Koubek, Calleri, Russell, Berdych, Baghdatinho be anything but excellent.

Blake will play
He'll get a WC.....I think he missed deadline or something like that :retard:

Another WC will be reserved for Djokovic if he wants to play..

That would be good for the tournament. High-ranked players don't seem to bother much with deadlines, knowing they'll get WC :confused:

That was a great match. I was so pissed, when I lost my recording due to a HDD crash. Thankfully enough, a fellow MTFer uploaded it later. :)

That's nice because Kiefer is a great player...

Although if Djokovic decides to play here as well (what would be great too!), the three wildcards would go to Blake, Kiefer and Djokovic...no Swiss player and it isn't easy to go through to qualifying :shrug: ok, we have Roger and Stan in, but anyway....

but I'm really looking forward to this tourney, i'm gonna try to give some reports on MTF....;)

I doubt it was only a field of 16 to begin with, but who knows :confused:There are no qualifying entry lists for International Series tournaments.
