Last minute updates
Still no qualifying draw, but some last minutes news from Jay's site...
1) Gimelstob and Hernandez have withdrawn. Fernando Verdasco and Harel Levy take their spots in the main draw.
2) The Cannas wild card has never been officially announced by the tourney, and it's not at all clear that he got it. There is also some controversy that Harsh Mankad, second highest ranked Indian player, has not gotten a WC.
"I lost a qualifying singles and first round doubles match in a challengers tournament in Italy in 1998, and I had to pay for everything from the plane flight to the laundry to the meals. So they tell me when I finish that I won $44. I'm like, 'Can I have that now?' And they said, 'Oh no, we'll send you the check.' "
