Re: Dubai Entry List/Fact Sheet (updated January 22, 2008)

This is the first time I've ever watched over how this unfolds, so I hope you don't mind the questions. But what happens if no one from the entry list withdraws? Those alternates aren't on the qualifying entry list, so are they just out without even a chance to qualify?
Yes.
If they really want to play the event, they have to enter the qualifying entry list too.

this brings up some interesting scenarios :cool:

somebody will get Bahrouzyan in the first round, while even a seeded player can get Murray or Youzhny :lol:

Re: Dubai Entry List/Fact Sheet (updated January 22, 2008)

This entry list was as of January 22 when Santoro was ranked one ahead of Feli, but now he's two behind. Feli is at 38 and Santoro at 40. Will this be updated to reflect the current rankings? I hope Feli will manage to get into this thing, although I'd much prefer he was playing in Las Vegas since I'll actually get to see some of that tournament, and with Gonzalez dealing with an injury, there might be no one I want to see in Vegas.
The order of the entry list is not updated to reflect a change in rankings. The entry list and the order of the alternates are set ont he day it is published. Once the withdrawal deadline has passed (Friday afternoon before the tournament starts), the players that are still on the entry list are put into order based on their current rankings and seeded for the draw, then the draw is made.

Does that help? Just ask if you have any more questions. :)

Not happy that Tommy is out (or that Seppi is in, :lol:), but I'm glad Feli got in.

Now if just one more player will kindly withdraw, Tipsy will be in. And all will be well. :)
