Robredo will pull out (surgery)
Source? Anyhow, if confirmed, bad for Boredo, but great for Gil, who this way has a decent SA clay swing, with at lesat two Direct Acceptances. Hope he can take some advantage, and overcome this dreadful last 6 or 7 months.

What happened with Almagro?

Didn't they wanted to pay 1 million to him again? :p

Sadly, I doubt Nalbandian will really come when he is playing Davis Cup in Germany on the eve and his home event a week later. A last minute withdrawal seems likely here.

It would be fair that the remaining WCs go to Tiago Fernandes and Rogerio Dutra Silva.

Some portuguese in qualification? (less Gil)
Gil out of the QD cause he's in the MD now. About other portuguese, I don't know, but I can see Gastão giving a try here. He works with his coach in Brazil, so why not?

Yes, but it would be a good experience for him.

If it doesn't go to Fernandes, it should go to Clezar. They are the most promising Brazilians at the moment. But Clezar already got one last year...

Ridiculous. Why didn't he use his ranking to get into the Main Draw? Now we won't be able to give a young player the oportunity to play an ATP 250. Clezar should have gotten this second one. Now the last one will probably go to Rogerio Dutra Silva.

With so many brazilian youngsters coming up right now, the fact that two WCs were "wasted" with foreigners that probably won't even bring that much public to the event really pisses me off.

The last WC needs to go to Guilherme Clezar.
