The only 90 points that keep Lacko from dropping to the Slovak no.2 ranking to Gombos.

OUT: Dzumhur
IN: Krajicek

It is impossible to get in Bosnia Chinese visa in 2 days. That's probably the reason of some other withdrawals from alternate list.

:surprise:
What ? Can't they get in with simple invitation letter ? Can't Chinese give him the visa on arrival at the airport ?

I can't believe that Damir will not play a ATP 250 because of freaking visa ?!?!

Can't believe that any top 100 player is missing tournaments because of a visa ....

Unbelievable :mad: :fiery:

Actually this is quite common when they go to Asia, quite a few players can't get visa's, so that's why you see weaker qualy draws and whatnot.

@Tennis Passion
Believe me, that is the reason.

Consular division in Chinese Embassy in Sarajevo works only on Tuesdays and Thursdays for a couple of hours. ATP sends only invitation letter, but to cross the Chinese border you need to have visa. Even if they would make some express work and produce visa not in 5 days like usual but in 1 day it is still too late. Wednesday is the latest day you can place, so Monday is the last one for leaving Europe.

Of course next year it won't happen if China tournee will be planned, visa received in advance,etc. This time it wasn't in plan, Moroccan challengers instead next two weeks as you can see on entry lists.

I do believe you that visa was the reason ....
But I can't believe the cruelty of the world we live in and stupidity of the human beings ....

I can't believe all the questions I'm being asked when arriving at Zurich airport, all the harassment and procedures before boarding a plane to United States ... and everything that takes away fun from travelling ......

:sad:
