Has it ever happen that the worlds top 6 have played in the same tournament when the tournament doesn´t have any Grand Slam or Masters Series status? :worship:

It is an incredible line up with Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, Davydenko, Ferrer and Roddick. A cut of 36 with 8 of top 10, also includes Gasquet, Murray, Haas, Robredo,Berdych, Youzhny.....and so on....:worship:

Will be very tough to win those 300 ranking points.
Congratulations Dubai!:clap2::bigclap:

dubai has always been the best tournament ex gs/masters regarding participants; the facilities must be brilliant, the heat is supposed to be dry (resembling with indian wells) so it's not that hard to cope with the extreme conditions and the money's quite good as well. unsurprising though, as the sheiks don't give a shit about making losses or that kinda nasty stuff western countries have to take into consideration.

I wonder if Harel Levy is still on the alternate list. Would be great for tennis for him to try to show up for qualies and get thrown out of the country.

Don't think that would happen.

As I understand it, both Peer and Obziler are down to play WTA Doha or Dubai this season and I believe that's going ahead.

There is only Las Vegas the same week. Three top 20 players there; Gonzalez(7), Baghdatis(16), Canas(17). Cut off 74
Yeah I caught that after I posted - normally there's Acapulco that week too but things have moved around this year.

Harel is on the alternate list? That's news. The news here talked about Tzipi and Shahar going (Tzipi to Dubai, Shahar to Doha (She promised to play Memphis, so no Dubai for her), but said nothing about Harel.

Its a great tournament..The players probably get the best treatment, maybe they even spoil them like rich arab kids. The club where the courts are is great eventhough its extremely artificial and its fun...

But if im correct, i thought nadal was gonna skip Marseille and Dubai and play clay tourney instead?

If he's that low down, he probably won't go. He might have a better chance getting in to qualies in Memphis, and I haven't looked to see what he might sign up for the week before and the week after.
