Nice to hear Paul will be there. :D

:lol: @ Roddick. He probably just skipped the Olympics because he knew he didn't have a chance with all the top players there, and decided he could come here and get some easier points to keep his inflated ranking in the top 10.

Any news on the Wild-Cards??

Sounds like Devvarman is planning on playing here. Whether that means he gets a wild card into the main draw, or if he's just entering the qualies, I'm not sure. Hopefully some Cav fans will drive up to cheer him on.

oh my god. pathetic. gran and schwank? :haha:

I did too. I decided to go ahead and do it because they actually upgraded my seats and I want to have them for next year.
Eh, I knew the Olympics was going to screw everything up, so I'm not that disappointed ATM, maybe I will be if Roddick or Safin pull out.
