I do hope so so so so so so so so very much too :awww:

ZackBusner
04-21-2008, 11:57 PM
Any new theories about who will get the Wild Cards?
As always, they will all go to german players. First WC to Andi Beck as he won the WC tournament. If Kiwi doesn't get a direct entry he'll get the second WC. I think Berrer is quite sure as well since he played Davis Cup this year. So there is one more: Zverev? Mayer? Gremelmayr? Petzschner? Schüttler :scared: ?

Maybe Steeb as tournament director will be a bit more open-minded and won't stick to the stupid "German players only" rule.

Guga would probably get one if he wanted to play (though after today's slaughter I hope he reconsiders :scared:).

Safin and Ancic? Marat as a crowd-pleaser, Mario because of his "heroic" fight back from injury? They'll both at least try.

If it's just Germans again, Zverev should get a WC since he lives in Hamburg (local hero, LOL). I kinda doubt Berrer would even want one, he doesn't like clay too much. But Mayer perhaps?

Let's take it the Zen way - wait patiently and see :angel:

It was said that he don't get a WC. Beside this Hamburg isn't mentioned on his homepage. Guga will play Barcelona and Paris before retiring.

Gremelmayr will receive a WC,

:rolleyes: Why do you say that as if you are sure?

Gremelmayr committed to Zagreb that week.

ZackBusner
04-30-2008, 09:48 PM
At the moment I guess the WCs will go to Kiefer, Berrer, Gremelmayr, Beck. If Kiefer gets direct entry (what I doubt) the 4th WC will be for Schüttler.

Santoro's participation is highly doubtful
Youzhny and Tsonga are not sure to play. Querrey told he would go back to USA for 3 weeks (right ?), and i don't think the SE spot will be used... + usual withdrawal we don't know yet but that will surely comes .
I'm pretty sure Kiefer will get in without a WC. :)

Nadal and Malisse probably won't play here

Filipo
05-01-2008, 11:37 PM
why Nadal ? if he lost early in Rome (3rd consecutive week) he could play here.

davis
05-02-2008, 04:01 PM
why Nadal ? if he lost early in Rome (3rd consecutive week) he could play here.

I don't think Rafa will lose early in Rome but I'm pretty convinced he'll play in Hamburg no matter what. He has a lot of points to defend and he has never won the tournament so far - something he'd love to achieve. He might complain about the tight schedule, but that doesn't mean he'll skip a major event.

WC for Gremlmeyer looks like a pretty sure deal now.

Filipo
05-02-2008, 04:12 PM
even during the 2nd of these 4 consecutive weeks he has problems with his shoulder. so yeah, i'm pretty sure he will lose early in Rome or Hamburg.

Oldgirl
05-02-2008, 05:17 PM
3 WC are out ... Kiefer, Berrer and Beck ... fourth is to be named later ...

JMG
05-02-2008, 06:20 PM
Hopefully Petzschner, he's one of the better options. As I said, I don't think Gremelmayr can get a WC, because he committed to Zagreb. Or am I wrong?

no you are right. Gremelmayr is in Zagreb (CH) in Main Draw

ZackBusner
05-02-2008, 07:55 PM
Okay, no WC for Gremelmayr. (really stupid to commit to Zagreb. But probably not even Denis himself expected he would play that well and become a hot candidate for a WC in Hamburg)

JMG
05-02-2008, 09:35 PM
Even dumber decision from Mayer to play Zagreb imo. What a loser.

Any news on whether Nadal will be playing, I saw mention somewhere, I think it was either Dutch or Belgian tv a couple of days ago that he had withdrawn from Hamburg or had stated he wasn't going to play :confused:

ZackBusner
05-05-2008, 10:33 PM
I haven't heard anything like that. All he said is that he finds it very hard to play Monte Carlo, Barcelona, Rome, and Hamburg in four consecutive weeks. He complained about the schedule. But it did not sound like he planned to skip one of these tournaments. He actually needs the ranking points. And well, as the Masters events are mandatory he can't pull out of Hamburg due to injury or exhaustion as long as he is still playing in Rome.

anon57
05-06-2008, 03:55 PM
Yes I thought the same which was why I found it odd when I read that he had already said he wasn't playing Hamburg before Rome had even started, I guess his words were just misunderstood. Thanks for answering

hip injury... he is preparing for a comeback in Hamburg but his coach said it's very much in doubt to happen.... but he will play Roland Garros in any case... :confused:

and Nalbandian withdrew today

Yappa

Thanks for the update, kiwi10is.
Would be nice if he somehow made it, but if not, then oh well...

I really enjoyed following Hewitts last year's Hamburg matches. Also got to see him practice with me and 3-4 other ppl being the only ones watching. :)

Anyway, qualies have already started, so next withdrawal will give a lucky loser.

Potential lucky loser spots are drawn afterwards, I'mean they are not going to highest seeded player from last round of qualies ?
