What they need to do is put these players in Sydney and move the others to Auckland. I get Sydney television coverage, and these are the players I want to see, not the ones that are in Sydney. Oh well, vamos Juan Carlos.

Tennis: King-Turner may be sole Kiwi at Open

New Zealand No 1 Dan King-Turner is likely to be the only local flag flying in January's Heineken Open.

King-Turner, whose world ranking has risen from the mid 400s to 345 this season, has received a wildcard into the main draw.

But the country's two next highest-ranked players, Simon Rea (502) and Rubin Statham (561), look to have missed out.

It is understood Rea will not take part in the tournament as he contemplates his playing future.

Of the three wildcards available to tournament director Graham Pearce, one is set to go to former world No 7 Mario Ancic and another is likely to go to a player with a top 50 ranking.

Pearce said a decision on the final wildcard would be made the week before the tournament which begins on January 7.

The decision to grant King-Turner a wildcard had been fairly straight forward, Pearce said.

"We always look to hold a wildcard for our No 1-ranked New Zealand player, provided they are fit, have performed well and are committed. Certainly he meets those criteria. He's had a good year."

1 Ferrer, David ESP 5
3 Chela, Juan Ignacio ARG 20
4 Monaco, Juan ARG 23
5 Ferrero, Juan Carlos ESP 24
6 Nieminen, Jarkko FIN 27
7 Almagro, Nicolas ESP 28
8 Starace, Potito ITA 31

It looks like clay court event's main draw. :(
But Sydney and Kooyong are in big opposite.

I wish good luck to Juan Monaco - very talented player.
