and he didn't appear The organizers had problems with draws (we saw three version of QD and didn't see how many were MD versions)...
If anyone compare the entry list on page 1 (the acceptance list(MD+Alts) is reproduced here in full) and the real MD then one may conclude that organizers had available only 30 players instead 32 It's sufficiently rare thing that none in QD was on ALTERNATES list
yes, thats really strange that none of the QD players were on the ALT list. i still dont know how this can be. strange draw and drawing procedure here for sure. and confusing!
Bozo fell apart in the third set. Had game pts. on last two sevice games he lost. From the stats, it looked like he should have won the first set too. Still, a good week for him but that was a winnable final.

Finally, I understand you reaction. When I wrote my replies on page 2 we had another version of the first post of AJ(No.1) that contained full ALT list. Now we see the short version of that list It's happened from time to time due to some problems in MTF site database: when author edits a post a few times the database sometimes keeps only the original or intermediate version, in this situation author could be deceived because the text editor embedded into his local computer or his browser cash may show the last version. Or often I see another scenario: when author edits a post a few times the database keeps the last version a few days and then after probably some crushing events or system failures in it returns to only first(original) post version. I guess many of old MTF users know about such problems (AJ simply names the MTF DB the f*cking one )
Returning to our discussion, I think all problems of local organizers were due to very short list and many withdraws, at the deadline moment or soon after it they had only 30 available players in EL. I see only one real strange thing: why Enrico Becuzzi is not here? He feels such situations very good to enter MD or QD with his ranking ...

He played Main Tour qualies in Kuala Lumpur in stead!
