not such a surprise IMO because I thought the word was "Indian Wells" or "Miami".

Tomorrow the entry list for Sunrise comes out. Maybe he appears there on the list, although his ranking is probably not good enough for a direct entry.

His name is on the acceptance list but without using the entry protection. And because the cut off is 73 he will have to play quali for a challenger? Kind of strange, isn`t it??

It is strange but I think I would also be very "geizig" and selective what eight tournaments you use your protected ranking for. You may spread them over nine months after your return and getting into, for example, Masters (which require a high ranking) without qualies should be priority. And you don't have so many tournaments before the French Open or Wimbledon prior to their 6 week entry deadline. If things are going bad, he must save two for Grand Slams and if he wants to play Masters without qualies he can use the them for it or for little tournaments you want to play. You hardly can afford the luxery to spend it on a challenger IMO and most of all, I think the qualy match or any match under competetive framework would be already a good first test after such a long time (and if you lose there, you can say it is only a challenger; do you lose a qualy for a Masters it is of different imporatance).

I'm sure they would give him a wildcard in Sunrise. Last year Karlovic, Kim, Serra and Schuettler got one. Direct entry is possible too. Last year the cut dropped from 80 to 149 due to withdrawals.

hm... do you think so?
Well... he is still on the acceptance list but to be honest... he said in an interview that he will go to Donaustauffen to get treatment on his wrist from Klaus Eder who is physiotherapist for our national soccer team, for the Davis Cup Team and for the German Olympic Team and who helped Kiwi`s friend Thomas Bredaric from Hannover 96. That should take longer than just one week I think... But I still hope for a miracle

BMW CHAMPIONSHIP ATTRACTS BEST FIELD IN TOURNAMENT HISTORY



(Sunrise, FL) - No. 21 ranked Dmitry Tursunov is returning to the BMW Tennis Championship March 11 - 18 to defend his title at Sunrise Tennis Center. The ATP Challenger's top 32 players also include last year's finalist No. 57 Alberto Martin, French Open semi-finalist No. 23 Dominik Hrbaty, two-time Wimbledon semi-finalist Sebastien Grosjean, rising star Gael Monfils, who fought his way to the 4 th round of the French Open last year; 2006 BMW semifinalist Ivo Karlovic, who this week reached the final at San Jose, after beating James Blake and Mardy Fish; Gilles Simon, who won his first ATP title this year in Marsielle, defeating Lleyton Hewitt and Marcus Baghdatis; and popular US players Vince Spadea and Justin Gimelstob. This year's player entry cutoff is a blazing 73.

One wild card has been awarded, to former No. 4 Nicolas Kiefer. At this time last year the German was ranked 12, after reaching the semifinals of the Australian Open - losing to eventual champ Roger Federer. Kiefer is launching his tour comeback at the BMW Tennis Championship after a wrist injury at the French Open. Players losing in the first round of the Pacific Life Open March 5-18 are eligible for the three remaining spots.

Rounding out the BMW's top 32 entries are No. 35 Julien Benneteau, No. 40 Jonas Bjorkman, No. 71 Daniele Bracciali, No. 69 Juan Martin Del Portro, No. 72 Guillermo Garcia-Lopez, No. 44 Marc Gicquel, No. 50 Luis Horna, No. 58 Phillipp Kohlschreiber, No. 73 Stefan Koubek, No. 65 Nicolas Mahut, No. 64 Paul-Henri Mathieu, No. 49 Florian Mayer, No. 66 Juan Monaco, and No. 67 Florent Serra.

Notable alternates include Rainer Schuettler, Igor Andreev, Michael Llodra, Gilles Muller, and young Americans Sam Querry, Alex Kuznesov, Robert Kenrick and Alex Bogomolov Jr.

The buzz is building - as more and more top players warm-up for the Sony Ericsson Open by playing the BMW Tennis Championship. The courts are the same, the balls are the same, the weather's the same - and the competition just as tough as at Key Biscayne.

Tickets are ON SALE NOW!


they say he will start his comeback in Sunrise.... I hope they are right... maybe he doesn`t go to Indian Wells but to Sunrise??? Oh please let this be true!!!

Meh, that would be a quick turnaround. I am very sceptical.

And wow, what a challenger tourney!

I think this news was from 21st Feb, so about the same time when he had to stop the training. So to me it looks like he accepted the WC few days before we got the bad news.
