Still the 2007 season is not over, but as Tommy has played his last "official" tournament I thought it would be nice to create a thread of where he is playing in 2008 already ;)

Haven´t heard yet where he will start the season of 2008 (at least no Hopman Cup this year), but if there are any news about where he is playing, please post them here :)

Yes, I also hope they will show Doha on Eurosport :worship:

Would be great to be possible to watch Tommy at least on TV already in the first tournament of the season ;)

Re: Tommy´s schedule for 2008

he might replace willy cañas injured :sad: at Viña del mar tournement
ATP de Viña va por Robredo para reemplazar a Cañas

Patricio Muñoz Ortega, El Mercurio Online

SANTIAGO.- Álvaro Fillol se sorprende con la lesión que tendrá durante cuatro meses alejado de las canchas al argentino Guillermo Cañas (15°). "Supongo que me llamarán de un momento a otro para avisarme", dice con bastante relajo para ser el director de un torneo que tenía al trasandino como el segundo jugador más importante según el ranking.

"Obviamente que era una carta importante para el campeonato, pero estábamos haciendo gestiones para sumar a algún jugador español. Son conversaciones muy preliminares, pero nos gustaría traer a Tommy Robredo, (10°), con quien ya habíamos tenido algunos acercamientos", cuenta Fillol a Emol.

El organizador del principal torneo tenístico del país reveló además que "con Tommy siempre bromeamos que él nos debe una visita al torneo y capaz que esta sea la ocasión de cobrarla. Nosotros le dimos un wild card cuando él empezaba (en 2001, perdió con Fernando González en primera ronda).

Fillol agrega que "podríamos sumar un segundo español, podría ser Verdasco, es decir, por jugadores no nos vamos a quedar y lo importante es que la gente sepa que otra vez tendremos un gran torneo para que la gente pueda disfrutarlo".

El director del abierto de Viña del Mar, que se jugará entre el lunes 28 de enero y el domingo 3 de febrero, también comentó que tanto el court central como las canchas adyacentes están construidas. "Las canchas ya están listas, el jueves estaré en el Club Naval para ver cómo marcha eso y en una reunión de coordinación", para ver como haremos el armado de todos los otros elementos, como las graderías, los stands, etc.

El ATP de Viña del Mar ya confirmó a Fernando González (7°), su figura más importante por lejos, ya que no sólo es el mejor tenista chileno, sino que es el mejor rankeado de todos los jugadores que intervendrán. Además del pupilo de Larry Stefanski, el torneo aseguró a los argentinos Juan Martín del Potro, Juan Ignacio Chela y Juan Mónaco, además del viñamarino Nicolás Mass

Re: Tommy´s schedule for 2008

Ouch, horrible draw there. It's a shame he has to play against Calleri, but a second round against Lee is very very dangerous. Hopefully he can do well.

Re: Tommy´s schedule for 2008

That is practically the worst draw possible for Tommy. Those aggressive games are bad matchups for him.

Mirny/Lee, KARLOVIC? Then Ljubicic if he gets through that!

And shame he plays Gordo too :(
