Cips :rocker: :dance: Would be wise to play qualies here.

And good to see Mischa will make the MD without a WC.

:ras: at Jo, come back to Queens!

Nice list here as usual, might have to do some days here one year.

Almost everyone one the list can play attractive grass court tennis, unlike Nadal. :yeah: Good that he and Fakervic are not here.

Good list, but its a shame that Federer never plays Queens. But still a good list for the German fans.

Schuettler and Becker will get wildcards, if they don't get in. Petzschner is the biggest candidate for the third.

Horatio Caine

Yeah Petzschner should get one.

Halle grabbed a few from Queens this year- Tursunov, ToJo, Tsonga, Stepanek, Ljubicic...

WC
Benjamin Becker

Andreas Beck

Good choice in my opinion. But Becker probably won´t need a WC as he´s the second alternate.

Gogo Petzschner :worship:

Any Spain?

Baghdatis might be out due to ankle injury. He was playing at Surbiton and withdrawn due to ankle injury.
