Default Re: Australian Open entry list (updated December 8, 2009)

usually the protected rankings are in your initial lists if I'm not wrong :

does it mean that Moya didn't use it to play in Melbourne ? (he should have a PR around 50)

Btw, Santoro said in the French press that he would not go to Melbourne.

And we've not heard about Ancic for a while

probably not, he's scheduled to return in the Heilbronn challenger

Malisse also likely to be out due to his ban, though he'll learn the outcome of his appeal in early January. Santoro out as well most likely...

he clearly said he would not go in the French media after Bercy.

Not impossible that he changes his mind because he liked the "4 decades record" but he sounded very sure : he'll probably take full benefit of christmas with his daughter.

I think I remember that Smucav said that the rule was changing for 2010.

In the past I think 6 months off were required , but actually Vliegen played Scheveningen (after Wimbledon) in july then it's not 6 months
