As far as I know A-Rod is still doubtful because he has to play Davis Cup till Sunday 21 in Slovak Republic. A-Rod has to reach Bangkok on Tuesday 23, I think it's tough for him to fly from Slovak Republic to Thailand. If he comes, he has to play the 1st round match on Wednesday 24. I think he won't be able to do well because he need the time to adjust the condition and the jet-lag may cause him get out in the 1st round.
BTW, Mr. Chaipak Siriwat, chairman of the Thailand Open 2003 confirmed that A-Rod will come. Just wait and see !!!!
More news which I've been posting in Davis Cup forum:
Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra is expected to attend the tournament on Tuesday 23 evening to watch Paradorn play his opening match.
The two star Spanish players, French Open champion and world No 1 Juan Carlos Ferrero and Carlos Moya, will arrive in Bangkok next Tuesday 23 morning.
