Wow this list is so horrible when compared to the other two tournaments...

Maybe they will get some Top 50 players to join for WC.

It is strange, because Berdych said in interview after DC win that he starts season in Chennai.

Hopefully he won´t ask for late WC :facepalm:

3 Top 20's and 1 more top 50, so that's four tour reg's and the rest are CH worthy, nice. :(

This tournament was always the weakest this week because Doha alway had one or two of the big 4 and brisbane alway had alot "second class" players (5-20 )

J99
11-22-2012, 11:11 AM
It's even weaker than last year, last year they had 2 top 10's 3 top 20's, 7 top 50's and the last entry was #101.

Boa sorte João Sousa!!! Vamos! I think this is his first direct entry in a ATP tournament, but not sure of it.

What a gap between 3 and 4! Though seems to be 4 and 5- I guess Berdych forgot to register

Seems Cilic will win his 3rd title (considering how he dominates Tipsarevic). If Berdych will go for a WC he or Tipsarevic will win.

No he hasn't, he's done well in Auckland, not here, this is the 2nd time I've said this now. :wavey:

You can't expect Paire to play a first round on the ATP tour, he's beyond that level now. Berdych better not show up to take Paire's (rightful) bye away...

Berdych will be the top seed, and there will be only two WC's, one of which has been confirmed as Somdev Devvarman. Other one is not yet decided.

you should write about it in the "entry-list" thread usually that's how people follow these topics : I quoted you there :

I asked you a question there ;)

I quote Pratik :

you mean that Berdych will take the third wild-card, don't you ?

Thanks. Don't know how I saw the early commitments thread and missed this :o

And since I did not provide a source in that post:
http://www.thehindu.com/sport/tennis/wild-card-for-somdev-devvarman/article4123330.ece
http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/sports/tennis/top-stories/Wild-card-for-Somdev-Devvarman-Berdych-top-seed-in-Chennai-Open/articleshow/17323729.cms

Both of these(I could give more) also claim that Berdych was a direct entry. Although, I don't know how much you can rely on Indian media for this.

Hope Berdych doesn't play. Not that he is unbeatable, but Wawrinka needs this really BAD. At least a final would be good, provided this entry list.

its not that bad ,last years was the same we had go soeda making the sf and goffin and sugita putting up some great matches so i dont see what the problem is
plus anyways they get paire whos more exciting than most the players in the other tourneys :worship:

Well, I don't see where you find it an awful entry list for an ATP 250. Two top 10 (Berdych and Tipsarevic) two top 20 (Cilic and Wawrinka) and cut off at 109. And you can find players with the potential of Kuznetsov, Paire, Donskoy, Bedene and Sijsling. I don't find it a bad tournament at all
PS> I find you a respectful poster but I don't agree with you on these one.
