it's great

He's going to be playing in Belgium for Davis Cup the weekend before. I guess he just felt that he might as well play a tournament while he's in Europe.

It's not the best desicion for Janko to play this tournament. There'll be Belgrade challenger the same week where he should protect a lot of points. And this year he can take even more points than the previous because it's 125000$ now(100000$ before). It'll be very difficult for him to do well in that rather strong ATP tournament. But he can. Good luck Janko and also Novak, Kolya, Ivan, Mario, Misha, Dominik

No he isn't scared of Murray. :) This field is much tougher than San Jose and he will a tough time reaching Semi final. In San Jose could have been a free pass for him into Semis and possible finals. He really wan't to take on top players and gain confidence. :devil:

I'll be there as every year, and I'm glad to see the field is getting better and better! It's just a pity americans (San Jose) and Roger (resting time) are unlikely to play it. Safin used come as well... But you can't have them all! :)

I don't know about Betfair (since I'm in the US I couldn't watch that anyway) but I think they will have a livestream on the tournament website.

Good luck to Rafa and Marcos!!

Great Entry list

I hope for some amazing matches
and I hope Ljubo will draw Marcos in his side of the draw it would be nice to see Mr.Invisible go home as fast as possible.

ivan will win this

year sure Ivan is on his way out of Top10 so no wins for him. Almost every guy in draw can knock him out of the tournament - Nadal and Baggy have ideal h-t-h against him, Lleyton, Gasquet, Djokovic, Ferrer have great game to win with him and PimPim or Ancic could simply overpower him

the quality of the field went up since henman just withdrew :) and the website last year had a very nice stream so for those of you without betfair can watch there.

Ancic overpower ivan? WTF are you talking about. Pretty much every in the draw can beat Nadal and ivan will last a lot longer then Rafa, thats if rafa doesnt bitch out before the tourney starts.

Yeah sorry but I am 2-1 in predicting Ivan chances to go deep/win tournament
If He can't beat Fish Ancic can easily destroy him
Rafa(he has clear h-t-h against Big Head) Bahgdatis ( clear h-t-h against Bald Head) Hewitt (clear h-t-h against Zero Heart ) Davydenko ( 2-2 in h-t-h) and Ferrer ( 2-1 h-t-h for David) had games that trouble Ljubo a lot.
And Rafa being in slump since Wimby has better results than Ljubo - he made QF of USOpen , SF of TMC, QF of AO when results in this trournaments for Ljubo were 1st round, RR round, 1 st round.

stupid argument. Nadal only managed a handful of games in a best of 5 set match so does that mean he has no chance to beat anyone here?
