Hopfully Tomic and Berdych can have a nice run here. Looking foward to seeing Raonic.

Probably Verdasco since he loves asking for WC when he should sign in for tourneys :lol:

:hug: Pointless idea from Verdasco since he played three final at 250s but I can imagine him here. :lol:

How about Federer? He'll be playing DC in Aus. Could drop by? The Tournament Director is hinting someone 'famous'

1.He never comes early in Asia. 2.I'm not sure that Roger will play the Davis Cup. 3.I think a famous it Verdasco for example, or Hewitt, do not wait Federer or Nadal.

I love how three players in the main draw here - Tursunov, Devvarman, and Rosol - were playing in Challengers (specifically across the border, here in Singapore) just months ago.

The tournament FB has announced the recipients of the WCs.

Baggy and David Goffin got 'em.

With Harrison likely to get a MD slot automatically (he needs 1 SE spot to be cleared - which should happen despite a few upsets at Metz and Bucharest or a withdrawal), who will get the final WC?

Really. :lol:

But it's still writing it's greenset. :) :p (slow and synthetic courts)

Over the last years it was written Hardcourt oon the Drawsheet, now its Carpet. Hopefully then Petzsche could go really deep here!

It's hard court, the type of the surface was similar in last year and look at the doubles draw. It writes it's hard.

Ok than it is just a mistake by the ATP, thanks :)

But it's hard indoor or outdoor ? I didn't get it yet :o
