Re: Week 36: Istanbul

That is a really strong challenger draw if there aren't too many withdrawals there! When a player inside the top 100 is only barely being seeded at 8 then it must be a tough field.

Several players (Rain man, Murray, Clement) are still very much playing in NY.
Mmm. Looks like there will be quite a few withdrawals after all :(

The winner of Clement-Murray would surely be out as they'd play the 3rd round of the Open on sunday and the loser could well rest after 5 matches in the New York heat.
As you say Schuettler's still involved in singles too.
Justin Gimelstob's involved in mens and mixed doubles so might well not play and Michael Llodra's in the mens doubles also.
Didn't Bohdan Ulihrach pull out of the US Open lists? If so he might not be fit to play either.

That's 6 possible withdrawals. On the positive side that would mean players like Sela, Roger-Vasselin and Heuberger would be in :)

Gimelstob isn't going, so there's another one in from the alternate list.
