Jesse has R16 to defend. Beat Ljubicic last year and was competitive with Troicki. So that's enough to prove you wrong.

De Bakker has loads of fans in the area and still has the game to win a match. There is no way Rosol would have made a better choice.

Middelkoop is a different story.

Bye douche.

No need to guess, the updated entry list is in the first post:

Rosol is a fluke, they guy belongs in challengers honestly, much less wild cards outside of eastern european events..

Fanboy? I am very clear-minded and very logical...I replied to someone saying they thought Lukas might get a wild card and I said that would be awesome...Then you chime in with bitter comments saying he doesn't deserve one, yet Huta Galung does If that makes sense to you, you are more illogical and crazy than I thought

Monfils hasn't been in the Top 10 for awhile and yet you think he deserves a WC...If you read my posts, you would see that I do think local players deserve WC along with non-local players...On the original post, it listed 4 WC...Sijsling, Monfils and de Bakker make three, so there is room for one more, right? What's wrong with giving a WC to a non-local player...Many tournaments give WC to players from different countries...

This isn't about being a fanboy...I think Rosol is as deserving of a WC as any other player, but moreso than local players who will inevitably flop in the first round...I understand that home country's want to give WC to their journeymen/mugs, but does that make the WC a waste? More times than not, I think it does even though I understand why they give them to said players

I don't personally think that Schoorel, Huta Galung, Middlekoop or de Bakker stand a hell's chance in getting past the R1 unless they play one another...None of them have done anything relevant and they are all walking byes in my opinion with de Bakker being the possible exception...If you support ethnocentrism, nationalism and nepetism, then that is your prerogative...Personally, I don't

Does your brain function at optimal level? Bitter hater still hating

It is a good thing your opinion means nothing to the tournament directors because Huta Galung in a 500 level MD is the only travesty I see
Monfils is an established player (former Top 10) with a lot of charisma, a good indoor game, and good results this year.

Sure, true tennis fans will know who Rosol is. But fewer people will buy a ticket to watch him play than Monfils. Or than a Dutch player. Most people at tennis tournaments aren't true tennis fans. And, honestly, Rosol has done nothing since that one win.

By the way, I don't dislike Rosol at all. In fact I would match rather watch him than Monfils.

I remember your lack of logic from your bitter debates with Filo. I'm fearing, though, that your ability to reason logically has even deteriorated since then.

Rosol is like a Top 50-60 player and those local guys are clearly not, so your rationale doesn't make any sense...It's fair to give a couple local WC's but it's also fair to give a Top 50-60 player a WC too...There are 4 WC's after all
You completely missed the point. It is a perfectly normal thing for a tournament to give a chance for some points and money to local players, why on Earth would they waste it on someone like Rosol?!?! It doesn't make any sense. They will give WC to a star player or a local player, it's always been like this, I don't know why it is hard for you to believe it.

In any case, De Bakker got the WC, so I guess the organizers got my point.

Schoorel is injured.

And those other three shouldn't be getting a WC, IMO.

This is a big tournament, a ATP 500 tournament, the MD is great, very strong, do you honestly think the organizers will give a WC to a average Czech player? Yea, he beat Nadal, it doesn't mean that suddenly he became famous or a great player. It is more logical they wait for some big star to ask for a WC, if that doesn't happen they should give it to a local player, it doesn't matter what ranking he is, it would be more deserving than to give it to someone like Rosol.
When did I say it would be a travesty if Rosol did not get a WC? I said he is as deserving as anyone else a hell of a lot more than Huta Galung or players ranked outside the Top 150...A very strong MD with walking byes in terms of local players is not that strong. I can see the tournament organizers wanting to give a couple WC's to their own players, but what's wrong with giving the other two to nonlocal players? Rosol almost made the main draw on his own, so it's not that big of a deal...Looking at the list of the next alternates in, he would be a good choice for an indoor HC tournament...And it does matter what ranking you are...I guarantee none of the WC local players will get past the first round with this "strong field" as you claim...Rosol has more of a chance, imo, to win a couple rounds as they do, so whats the problem or travesty if he gets a WC, from a logical perspective?
