Re: Rome Entry List (updated March 25, 2008)

Guga can received Wild Card in Rome...
He won here in 1999, with 6/4 7/5 7/6(6) in final versus Rafter...

I hope Lee plays here. I bet he'd get in if he turned up.

I hope Fabrice gets in directly.
SE spot will very probably be cleared I don't think a qualyfier can reach SF in MC with so many good players

I hope Fabrice gets in directly.
He plans on playing only Monte-carlo and Roland-Garros, he confirmed it again yesterday (he already said for months he will almost skip the entire clay season).

actually Rome is the week after Barcelona, so the SEs (if any) will be from that tournament

Would imagine Fabio Fognini will get a wildcard here.

he's injured, first tournament he might play is RG and that is doubtful also

I guess Seppi will enter, being 2nd ALT, 1 WC will surely be for Bolelli and another for Cipolla who is from Rome

Re: Rome Entry List/Fact Sheet (updated April 22, 2008)

last year all wildcards were given to Italian players.... So I think the only Non-Italian player with a chance is Guga

– Что случилось с Южным?
– У Михаила сломан остистый отросток позвонка. К счастью, без смещения и других осложнений. Лазером это восстанавливается, но насколько точно он выбыл, пока не могу сказать.
