This list is WAY better than usual. What gives :( This will make it difficult for Gil to defend his F points. And yes all, I am upset, I wanted the usual challenger list so some different guys went deep in the draw. Oh well, this list is better for the fans.

Will Soderling play here? If he does that means he plays 4 week straight with Barcelona, Estoril, Madrid & Rome. Plus he already has two 250 points so can't add any points??

Maybe Robin will skip, he doesnot need to play here, no point plused

Sauletekis

Yes, Gil won't be able to defend his points here. But I don't mind. This list is so fucking hot! If I were in Portugal, I'll goo see this, but I'm on Lithuania now, so I can't watch all these stars. But good luck to all of them. Hopefully Gil won't need a WC. I'm so happy. I think I can say that these is one of the better 250 tournaments of the year! :worship:

Really interesting field. I guess it's a damn nice place to play at, but I'm still surprised to see Robin play here. Maybe he suspects there will be some tough challenges early in Barcelona where he might lose, because it'll be his first clay tournament of the season.

Davydenko is in Munich ;)

As for Verdasco, everywhere there's good money to catch, he's there ;)

And Söderling might follow this trend ;)

No Fed? Guess playing the 250's was a one year only thing, then.

I like very much this entry list.

Soderling, Del Potro, Verdasco, Bellucci, Simon, Raonic and Berankis are good names for a 250 tournament.

I have already my ticket for Monday. :)

Gil won't need one, because Del Potro problably won't play and there is also the SE spots cleared. Rui with some luck (1 or 2 withdrawls) may not need too. Gastão Elias will receive, it's 100% guaranteed. Then, problably João Sousa or Leo Tavares (only one of these too), and the last one to some foreign famous player (who knows, Federer?)

Delpo confirmed on Twitter that he'll play Estoril. Don't know why some rumours pretend he'll pull out

Tsonga got a WC.

Gil&becker

Tsonga got a WC.

Yes, and João Lagos, tournament director and owner, was refered as having said that Rui Machado will play, even if he doesn't enter directly (I'm sure he will, if SE clear, as usual, assuming Berankis is really out, and taking into account that Dudi Sela is already directly into Belgrade).

He also said that another WC will go to another portuguese player (I think it will be Gastão Elias), since he is sure that Frederico Gil will enter directly.

The other WC to a Top-20, but now we know that it is Tsonga.
Good for the audiences, and a spectacular player.
Another good addition to an enormous list of players, although probably some of the big sharks will end up not playing.

And as I explayned, another WC will still be available, to replace any important withdrawal, or for any Portuguese young-gun, although the obvious (João Sousa, Leonadro Tavares, Pedro Sousa) are in disastrous form.

I don't know if Gastão will be able to play. He's been injury and already pulled out from 2 challengers in the last 2 weeks. I hope he does though...

I think the 2 WCs remaining will go to Gastao (if he can play) and Leonardo Tavares (who's coming back from injury). If Gastão can't play, then probably João Sousa will get the spot.

Tiago Fernandes tweeted that he is in Estoril, I think he will get a qualifying draw WC

Sauletekis
04-20-2011, 03:50 PM
Becker is OUT. It's Official. Injury in his right elbow. Gil is IN! No need for WC. Machado just receive a WC, but he said he was hoping not receive it and get in directly, to gie to another portuguese player a WC.

Filo V.
04-20-2011, 09:08 PM
Cut off will probably be in the Bolelli/Hajek range, if not lower. I can definitely see Soderling pulling out, Berankis and Becker are already out, and then the SEs should be cleared. Will be interesting to see if De Bakker actually plays here, and if Riba is healthy.

Daniel and Andreev are both playing here. Also Machado is in, so that opens up another WC spot. De Bakker and Soderling will both be playing.

Machado directly IN, so rest of the WC went to Gastao Elias and Joao Sousa.

Marcos Daniel in the MD :spit:
I also hope Del Potro or Soderling are full fit (but i sincerly don't think so) and will save tennis by winning this event.If not, i think everybody has a chance because all the rest are a bunch of mugs

Sauletekis
04-22-2011, 11:34 PM
Totally deserved WC for Gastão. There wasn't other portuguese player that really deserved the WC, but still understand the decision to give it to João Sousa. But he's playing shit this season...

Davydenko is in Munich ;)

As for Verdasco, everywhere there's good money to catch, he's there ;)

And Söderling might follow this trend ;)

He skipt Barca but Estoril where he was defend champ there.?
