Is Gilles the only Belgian to play qualies?
On the VTV-site they say that Dick, Kristof, Christophe and Xavier will be preparing for the USopen
About Gilles they write he's playing qualifications for the USopen.

Are Kristof and Dick ranked high enough to enter the main draw?
50 Rochus, Olivier (BEL )
68 Malisse, Xavier (BEL )
92 Rochus, Christophe (BEL )
109 Norman, Dick (BEL )
110 Vliegen, Kristof (BEL )

133 Elseneer, Gilles (BEL )

It would be great if they were! :D That would be Kristof's first Grand Slam main draw wouldn't it?

Anyone has an entry-list? I can't find one on their site and I would really like to know who has to play qualies and who not...

I am also searching after it, but still with no result :(
I guess it could be possible that they are automatically in the main draw.. Good for the Belgians and very good for Kristof ;)

Anyway, we don't have to wait too long to know, 'cos tomorrow the qualies begin!

Reigning champion Pete Sampras today officially withdrew from the 2003 US Open. Sampras was automatically included on the initial entry list last week with a 52-week ranking of No. 26. He has not played a professional tournament since winning his fifth US Open and record 14th Grand Slam singles title last year.

Andreas Vinciguerra of Sweden was the 104th and last player accepted directly into the men’s field of 128. Sixteen more players will gain entry through the US Open qualifying rounds, August 19-22, while the remaining eight spots are wild card entries awarded by the USTA. ...
