Yes, he has a WC. But if he gets in as an ALT after enough withdrawals, then this would free the WC up for some other player. Not that this is going to happen, considering he's so far down the ALT list.

Because some important spanish guys decided to play in South America :(

Why is Djoko not playing here, anyone knows? Week rest after AO and then this tournament, which is 500. He played here before, and he does go to Marseille :confused:

What about Sluiter, I thought he was going to retire from retirement?

CooCooCachoo
01-30-2009, 04:58 PM
I thought so too, but I don't think he'll play Rotterdam. Would be very stupid to play that without any lead-up events in any case.

anon57
01-30-2009, 06:47 PM
Sluiter had already said that he considering playing Rotterdam as he isn't going to be ready to play such a high level event so soon after coming out of retirement. And from what I understand Krajicek wasn't too upset that Sluiter wasn't coming after organizing a farewell for Sluiter last year only to have him say he's coming back a couple of months later.

Too bad that Robin isn't fit in time for the tournament. It was great to see him play last year!

I can't wait till the time is finally there... a whole week of tennis in front of us! Rafa for title!!

And if not Rafa, then Lopez or Andreev ;).... (you never know if wishful thinking might work one day...;) )

Is Davydenko a certainty for this tournament?

Before he said he would comeback here.

You might be right about this one. I was reading an article yesterday, and it said that DAvydenko has made a reservation for a hotel room, so good chance he's back in business here in Rotterdam. :cool:

wildcard Dimitrov (Bul)


great:cool:

CooCooCachoo
02-05-2009, 11:17 AM
OMFG Dimitrov?

Ridiculous choice. In Rosmalen, the guy was clearly not ready. And then to expect him to perform at a much bigger event is crazy. No one in the crowd will know him either :shrug: Would have been better to give it to Koning or Middelkoop. They may be no-hopers, but at least they are Dutch. I mean, good luck to Dimitrov but really, what a choice.

Thiemo is a logical choice.

pla
02-06-2009, 05:26 AM
Ahem CooCoo, I am afraid they are pushing him too early into the big tournaments. He's 17, too young.. he needs at least one CALM year playing futures and challengers and developing nicely his game as his father was doing in the past. Indeed, this WC can hurt him more than do him good, while some Dutch player can benefit greatly from it. The Spaniards are a little obsessed with early bloomers I believe.

maybe because you need to update Adobe Flash Player

CooCooCachoo
02-06-2009, 10:56 AM
By giving a WC to Dimitrov, I guess Krajicek wants to safeguard his participation in Rotterdam when he is a top-ranked player. The same happened with Federer. But still, stupid decision IMO.

Klaas_nalbandian
02-06-2009, 12:26 PM
yep krajicek wants to have a good relationship with this future star so thats why he receives the wildcard.

Well the dutch players like middelkoop or koning will never make it into the top 100 so normally I would prefer the wildcard for a dutch guy, this time it's ok

looking forward to the draw, hopefully Nadal draws an nice player cause I want to see a good game wednesday
