Madrid Entry List!

09-05-2005, 08:04 PM
Hi, sorry I'm just a little worried. Madrid starts 6 weeks today, so I thought they would use the rankings for today as the entry list. But when I went on to their website, it said the list won't be up until September 13th. Does that mean that they'll use next Monday's rankings instead? I'm worried because I'm going, and the main player I want to see is Tommy Haas, and he'll fall to 39/40 when the rankings come out on Monday. Last year, 39 was the last direct entrance. I know players always pull out, but I don't want to take any chance!

yep, next weeks rankings.

why is that? I thought it's 6 weeks before a tournament?

Actually, let me double check on that. It could be last week's rankings. I know that IW used the rankings before the Aus Open in 2004 (confused the hell out of everyone that Marat needed a wildcard that year to get in). I'll see if can find the rule that clarifies this (but I bet smucav will beat me to it if she's around, she has a wicked fast connection). :D
