There will be 3 WC, not 4, so that means there will be 2 SE spots.

There will be 3 WC, not 4, so that means there will be 2 SE spots.False, per the ATP rulebook, there is only one (or zero) SE spot in 500 level tournaments: http://www.menstennisforums.com/showpost.php?p=12735762&postcount=1

The fourth wild card at 500 level events is reserved for a commitment player; if none is available, an additional alternate receives direct entry.

what was the drama?

For a tournament with its prize money, the list isn't that good. For starters, it's worse than Rotterdam. And of course it isn't even close to Queen's Club.

Marco Djokovic I guess?

Gasquet who lost early in Marseille, it might be a good choice to ask for a WC here.

Smucav Fact Sheets are amazing because they always share info about the specif surface type, in the case of Dubai the DecoTurf II! Not even in the torunament site you got info like that! Thank you!

Can someone just tell me what are the rules on who gets the SE spot?

only someone who would play the SF in Memphis (ATP500), who has not entered another tournament and would like to go straight to Dubai could get it. Only Sock and Russell could be concerned and they will surely prefer to play Delray Beach.

Most probably the SE spot will be cleared.

Tursunov had a good week. But Ram? Probably best ranked qualifier wood be better choice... (Yes I know it's a German and I'm German. ;))

By the way, the surface colour changed (from blue to green). Smucav's factsheet still calls the surface Decoturf II though. Is it really only a colour change?

At least drawsheet says it's Decoturf II.

Thank you for your answers. And what are the rules for lucky looser spot? You have to be in the final round of quallies and the best ranked guy gets it or?
