It's confirmed that Rafael Nadal pull out from main draw beacause of knee injury.On monday he will have desplaine press why he had to pull out.There have been a small change in the draw.Alberto Martin will now face Lukas Dlouhy,and Felix Mantilla will play against qualifayer.Good news for croatian tennis fans,Zeljko Krajan get into main draw as he beat Lukaev 6:4 6:4.I dont know a rest results from qualifaying.But without Nadal Umag is still a stronger tournament ever been held in croatia.

Is this the 'I'm going to take a well earned rest' excuse that Roddick used when he pulled out of LA ealier in the week?

But it's a logical move for Nadal beacause he had to prepare self for hardcourts season.But,still it's strong tournament.Bad luck to Krajan as he play versus Coria in 1.round.

Yes,I can see why he has pulled out to concentrate on the US season as you say and it gives others a chance to win!

Is the draw going to stay the same, will a lucky loser take his place or will Coria be #1 seed now?

I don't believe they change seedings once the draw is released. A lucky loser should take his place.

If Alberto Martin is taking Rafa's place in the draw then he'll be nominated ninth seed. That's what normally happens. A lucky loser will then take Martin's place.
