:spit: You must be joking.

Pics, yes. Muzza, absolutely not. The guy is still unproven on clay, and if he continues with this passive rubbish he is displaying, he will go to anyone half-decent in that draw (and the draw is pretty heavy).

I thought he would do this and I am glad about it, because he really needs to play matches and it is so important for him to play much better now on the clay season :)

This is the new(in spanish):

Tommy Robredo entra en el cuadro del VI Open de Tenis de la Comunidad Valenciana
Una de las dos wild card del VI Open de Tenis de la Comunidad Valenciana que faltaba por conocer ya tiene nombre, Tommy Robredo. El tenista catalán completará el cuadro del Internacional Series que se le celebrará entre el 14 y el 20 de este mes en el Club de Tenis Valencia.
Las negociaciones que la organización del VI Open de Tenis de la Comunidad Valenciana emprendiera con el tenista Tommy Robredo han obtenido su respuesta. El deportista gerundense ha aceptado la carta de invitación del torneo y se sumará al cuadro de jugadores. Robredo había llegado a un principio de acuerdo con el Open a la espera de conocer si era incluido por Emilio Sánchez Vicario en la lista del equipo de Copa Davis, que este fin de semana se medirá en Bremen a Alemania.
El tenista señaló que “hablé personalmente con Juan Carlos Ferrero -propietario de los derechos del torneo- y aunque no tenía decidido si finalmente iba a jugar esta semana, Valencia es un torneo que siempre me ha apetecido jugar y estoy muy satisfecho de poder hacerlo finalmente”.
Por su parte, Antonio Cascales, director del Abierto valenciano, indicó: “para nosotros es muy importante contar con un jugador de nivel mundial como Robredo que ha mostrado un interés muy grande por jugar en Valencia”. Cascales añadió que "desde el torneo también hemos hecho un esfuerzo importante para poder contar con él. Si el cuadro de este año ya contaba con tenistas de primer nivel, ahora con Robredo lo hemos mejorado más aún y aún podría venir la guinda”, añadió en referencia a la invitación que aún tienen por adjudicar.
El VI Open de Tenis de la Comunidad Valenciana contará con una lista de jugadores de excepción. Y no es para menos puesto que con ellos se despide de la tierra batida y da la bienvenida, en 2009, a un Open 500 con el nuevo calendario de la ATP y que cambia de escenario, se celebrará en la Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias, pasando a pista indoor.
Además de Tommy Robredo, el torneo valenciano contará esta edición con la participación de David Ferrer, Andy Murray, Guillermo Cañas, Juan Mónaco, Hyung Taik Lee o Janko Tipsarevic, además de con los ganadores de las anteriores ediciones Nicolás Almagro -vencedor en los dos últimos años-, Igor Andreev -cuarto finalista esta semana en Miami-, Fernando Verdasco y Juan Carlos Ferrero.

IMHO they should just stuff him, if he is too lazy to register in the entry lists of tournaments it's his own fault. And why would he get results if he did get a wildcard? He has been horrible.

Marat Safin, 2nd Wild Card!

La organización del Open de Tenis de la Comunidad Valenciana ha decidido otorgar el segundo Wild Card para el cuadro principal del torneo a Marat Safin. El tenista ruso, formado tenísticamente en Valencia, fue número 1 del mundo en 2.000 y ha sido ganador de dos torneos de Grand Slam: US Open, en 2.000, y Open de Australia, en 2.005. En su carrera acumula un total de 15 títulos.
Tras los wild cards de Tommy Robredo y Marat Safin, aún falta por conceder la tercera invitación, que el torneo hará pública en los próximos días.

Sadly, Andy has had to pull out of the forthcoming ATP event in Valencia due to illness.

Despite coming down with a virus since his arrival in Spain, he's going to stay in the country with Miles, Matty and Jez.

The plan is to get better, then prepare for the Masters Series events with Alex Corretja and the rest of the team.

Get well soon!

(Andy's Website)

British number one Andy Murray has pulled out of next week's Valencia Open after picking up a virus.

The 20-year-old had been expected to open his clay-court season at the event ahead of the French Open in May.

The Scot will now continue training in Spain before returning to competitive action at the Masters Series tournament in Monte Carlo on 21 April.

The illness is a blow to Murray, who was aiming to improve his ranking after dropping to number 22 in the world.

Murray dropped out of the top 20 for the first time since August 2006 after his second-round defeat in Miami at the end of March.

That loss followed defeat in the last 16 to Tommy Haas in Indian Wells.

Murray has won two ATP tournaments to his name this year at the Qatar Open and Open 13 in Marseille.
