Why the fuck is this a 28 field? One of the weaker fields this year.

Vinciguerra has a wildcard as long as he is fit.

And, who knows, maybe we will even get a French Open champion in Båstad...

Schwank will be able to choose Båstad or Stuttgart if both tournaments cancel their SEs... Or he must go to Båstad because he's first ALT here?

Excuse my bad words ,, but why the h´ll do they give Dimitrov a WC instead of our very own Daniel Berta,, a player that just won the French Open junior event.

Vinciguerra and Berta is a must to give a WC.. I doubt Pim Pim gonna play here.

Rehnqvist is a warrior, he deserves a WC. Dimitrov can play the Q event. He will come through that one EASY as the Q in Båstad is often like the standard of a Future event

Promising Teenager to Make Catella Swedish Open Debut
This year the Catella Swedish Open can present an up-and-coming player, 18-year-old Grigor Dimitrov. The Bulgarian is coached by Sweden’s Peter Lundgren, who has worked with stars like Marat Safin, Marcelo Rios and Roger Federer in the past. When the teenager is not playing on the tour, he trains at an academy in the outskirts of Paris.

In 2008 he claimed the juior titles at Wimbledon as well as the US Open and ended the season as the No. 3 junior in the World. The previous year the Bulgarian advanced to the final of the Orange Bowl in Key Biscayne.

After having won the US Open juniors last season, Dimitrov decided to improve his ATP ranking instead of competing in junior events. Following his win in New York, he won two consecutive Futures in Madrid, and advanced 300 spots in the rankings.

In the beginning of this season the Bulgarian received a wild card to the indoor event in Rotterdam. He scored his first win on the ATP World Tour by ousting Tomas Berdych. In the following round Dimitrov lost to World No. 1 Rafael Nadal in three sets.

The following week in Marseille, he received another wild card and lost to World No. 8 Gilles Simon after having served for the match at 5-3 in the decisive set.

The promising 18-year-old is currently No. 344 in the rankings, his career-best.

No offense taken, clay is the worst surface for Grigor and he avoided playing on it this season. I don't know why he took the wild card in Bastad, probably did not want to miss the chance he was offered. Berta would be a good choice, he has just won RG, although he is too young for the big guns. I read Berta is getting a WC in Rosmalen on grass, which is also strange as he has just won a Slam on clay :)

Pim Pim will play in Båstad! He said in an interview that he will play 2 challengers and then Båstad :)

Hm, then Dimitrov and Pim Pim will have WC´s. I wonder if they are going to make a Wild Card playoff between Berta, Vinci and Rehnqvist then? Guess that would be fair. Last year i think they had a play off for the Wild Card´s between Tim Göransson, Berta and one more player

Today on the swedish text-tv they had an article that Daniel Berta will have to wait for his WC because they keep a spot open for... NADAL! The organizers said,, if there is a microscopic chance he will come we will keep it open as long as possible

Dr. Cotorro says Rafa Nadal will be OK in 3 or 4 weeks, and Bastad is in 3 weeks... Very difficult!

Ad Wim
06-22-2009, 10:40 AM
Ofcourse Nadal won't play here. He won't play a 250-event and miss a 2000-event. He may play Hamburg though...

Chris-swede
06-22-2009, 10:55 AM
Pimpim will not play here i think.

And Rehnqvist will not get a WC. Cause they have not any left. It is a little sad story, earlier here played allways 5 up to 10 swedes regularly, now it is only Robin, 1 or 2 WC's and maybe one qualifier. In the early 1990's there was at one stage 14 swedes in the Main Draw, that was much fun!!!

Vinciguerra or Berta will get the 3rd WC, do not think Nadal will play here.

I'm surprised noone has mentioned that Daniel Koellerer is on the entry list. Will this be Crazy Danis debut in Båstad? I believe so. His on court behavior is the worst I've ever seen, but I'd love to see him do his thing in front of the Swedish crowd... He might be the most hated player in Båstad since...hm Horst Skoff.

Haven´t seen any list yet, but according to Patrik Rosenholm currently ranked 741, he thinks that he will manage to reach the qualy´s draw. Soo there will not be any big names in the Qualy draw as usual, i guess.

Don´t know yet, WC to Dimitrov,Vinciguerra, and one open spot. Pim Pim has one if he wants..

Chris-swede
07-01-2009, 10:23 AM
in 2007 and 2008 the cutoffs for qualies were very low...so it goes!

WC for Dimitrov, Vinci maybe and then? They still hope for Nadal. Would be a shame if berta not gets one. But do not think nadal will play.

Action Jackson
07-01-2009, 10:27 AM
Most of the good players just outside the cutoff won't bother with Båstad qualies, they will go play clay challengers instead.

Nadal won't play Båstad, it's a pisstake.

From what I remember, the Båstad Qualifying is like a low level future event (no offense)

There are 1 or 2 "big" names in the draw,, players that hope for a late withdrawal so they get in direct to MD or they play QF event.

I think there will actually be a couple of "byes" in the 1:st rd. What does it take to sign in to the Qualifying event? Is it a must to have at least 1 ATP Point to be able to play the qualifying or hope for a WC? I feel it´s VERY BAD if there is not at least a full draw in the qualifying. So many juniors that could have good use of the experience of playing a ATP qualifying event

I asked for the WC´s aswell, and got this answer "The last wildcard is not released yet, but it is determined today and will be publiced later on."

Soo Vinciguerra and Dimitrov has 2 of the WC´s for sure. Pim Pim will not be here, soo i guess Berta or an top ten player after Ferrer´s withdrawal.
