Both Martin and Sanchez dropped out on Monday, which is only 3 days before they were supposed to play and replaced by Cash and Ferreira. There was an interview titled "Martin eager to play on Naples clay", then a few days later he dropped out.

Men's tennis event opens Wednesday without Martin, Sanchez

A fan favorite, Todd Martin will not be competing in the Oliver Group Champions Cup tennis event as originally planned.

Event organizers Monday said Martin had to drop out because of a ligament injury to his right ankle. They said Emilio Sanchez also withdrew due to the flu.

This the not the Black Rock Tour of Champions?

No, this is a tour created by Jim Courier that plays only in the US and is just getting started. The players don't fool around and the quality of tennis is generally very good. The Black Rock Tour I believe is almost entirely in Europe and also has very high quality tennis. McEnroe plays in both, as do a few other players.
