If Rochus can take out Ljubicic, I see no reason to mention his name as part of a dominant clay field.

I do..playing at home in front of crowd.will help him big time..and knowing how Croats are. the player that plays Ivan will get alot of shit...yelling horns and good stuff like that on serve.

I watched Umag on tv the year Moya and Volandri played the final, lots of great matches.

Ivan is useless in clay :bigcry:

Of course he's not, some people seem to be thinking big serve = useless on clay when in fact he reached the SFs in Hamburg last year, beating both Pavel and Youzhny from a set down, before losing in three to Coria (the man whom he happened to beat on clay - yes, you heard it right - in Rome the year before when he made the QFs and lost to the eventual champion, Mantilla, in three sets).

ivan has only played one match on clay this year and people are already saying that he is useless :o

as a comparison, in prior year, players ranked in the 60-70 range were seeded. this year, they won't be seeded in qualifying...

Great for Marin Cilic to make his debut. His run to the RG junior title was impressive! I'm anxious to see how he can handle himself when facing the big boys!

Juanqui should pull out of this and attend a more easily in stead of ,IMO....

06-08-2005, 09:05 PM
nope, he shouldn't :p this is the first step for the tournament director to make a case for moving this tournament into the middle of the claycourt season

A lot of RG titles in that field. A big kick in the pants to anybody who mocks the post Wimbledon clay season :yeah:

Still, I wish Rafa would just focus on the hardcourts after Wimbledon so that he can do well in Montreal.

So Puerta has at least one more tournament to play in this year.

NIce field there! I'm surprised that Nadal will be there since I thought he would be concentrating on the hardcourts. He stilll has points to pick up for two more "best 5" little tournaments and more points can't hurt.

well, (according too rasberger, umag tour director) it's not sure that cilic and another croatian player will get WC..
first will for sure get vicente (best carlos moya friend) and second will go to kuerten who is under the "cutt-off" line right now (talk about quallity of the tournament ;))!
the third WC will go to either sasa tuksar (who managed to get into RG through q, just to get his ass kicked by davydenko ;)) or cilic.. this one will be on pilic to decide.

so no WC for slovenians, why would be.. they dont know what tennis is ;)

there is always a slovenian wc. the slovenian tennis association usually buys one

i doubt vicente will get a wc, he'll have to qualify
