Spain 25k is just up the road from me again at the Juan Carlos Ferrero Academy - Liam played a Challenger there last year.

Not yet drop out day so there may be many changes to the list but as well as Jack Draper, the Brits may include Choinski, Peniston, McHugh, Matusevich, Whitehouse, Johnson, Loffhagen, Canter, Paris, Fery and several others further down the list.

Some will choose other tournaments by next Tues and as a 25k, I expect the cut off to be quite high, but if there are a few playing, I will have to find a way to get in somehow. Hurely one of them needs a traveling coach or laundry man.

Jack has already pulled out of this one. Given his withdrawal from France already this week, this is rather worrying. I am hoping it is just covid logistical problems/prudence as opposed to an injury.

He withdrew from the main draw in Bressuire on Friday.  The letters "LWM" appear after his name down near the bottom of the list, which apparently means (I've just checked, as I couldn't work it out) that he will be recorded as a Late Withdrawal Main draw, i.e. after the withdrawal deadine, but doesn't give any clue to the reason for the withdrawal, of course.  I join you, Bob, in hoping that he's not dealing with some kind of an injury.

He withdrew from Spain on the same day. Hoping that it is just a change of schedule and nothing else.

I guess with the 14 day quarantine of several players in Melbourne this might open up some qualifying spots in Melbourne. I wonder if we will see Brydan Klein in one of them.

Do we know the actual structure for these Aussie warm up events?

48/64 main draws?
Qualies?

and are they doing doubles for them?

 According to the ATP site they are 48 main draw and 24 doubles draw. no idea about qualies but I guess there will be. Mainly filled up with locals Id guess.

I guess if we have 96 singles players versus an AO field of 128, we have some gaps...ATP Cup of course will take up some more, maybe all of the slack, so as you say pretty much all the qualies will be locally based players...

The two WTA events are supposed to both be 64 draws, with qualifying.

 So that should cover most of the 128 AO players in the main draws, presumably some will be in qualies though. 

I also thought for both ATP and WTA, they may also put doubles players into qualies and give them the chance to warm up. We may see a Luke or a Jonny or some such get a match?!

I guess the qualifying will be 16 men draws for the ATP 250's. You have the 128 singles plus I think 8 alts that travelled so 136 to accommodate. So 96 and 32 gives 128. Then you have those already playing ATP cup and those that can no longer play due to quarantine.
