Don't worry. DC is over so no reason to not be OK now. It turns out his injury is not as bad as he feared during DC tie. He'll play Tokyo.

First 4 not first 8 in Bangkok. :rolleyes:

Do you really think a 500 categotry tournament has byes in a 32 draw? Why don't you just look at the first post? You would see that there are 32 spots for the draw. :cuckoo:

http://stevegtennis.com/rankings/2008/s2008.htm

According to rankings at the end of 2008, Schuettler was not top30 player, actually he was #33. I still don't understand is he comitement player, and does this rule about atp500 tournaments can be applied on him. Can someone try to explain this please :confused:
