Ferrero's name gets him plenty of wildcards. If he had done anything of note in the past year, he probably would have recieved one. Look at Hewitt - he was injured but has played great lately, fans want to see him, so he got a wildcard. Ferrero is a washed up old has-been. By your logic I suppose they should have given wildcards to Gaudio and Moya as well? The tournament directors know what they are doing, and the Montreal fans will be very excited to see Fred.

Canada has one ATP event a year. Are you really so outraged they are giving 75% of the wildcards to Canadian players? Seriously, get over it.

Federer / Youzhny / Ancic / Raonic / Dancevic

I definitely will. Fred is a cool cat, love his serve.

I have no idea what's the big deal with Ferrero playing qualifying. Shouldn't kill him for sure.

As if Hewitt isn't a "washed up old has-been" What has he done lately? Won a MM title just like Ferrero did. They both are old has-beens who are trying to get back on track. I see no difference between the 2's results as of late. IMO they both should play Q and the WCs should be given to young and promising or local players.

When I'm good, I'm very good...but when I'm bad, I'm better

I may personally disagree, but Hewitt is a lot more famous and popular in North America than Ferrero is.

I understand that Hewitt's name may be more popular,

but as for the recent results, Ferrero is exactly like Hewitt :

quarter-finalist in Wimbledon, won an ATP250,
and Ferrero is 20th in the Race, Hewitt is 21st, and both are round 16 in Washington.

Then no I don't understand that argument

useless old guy

Re: Montreal Entry List/Fact Sheet (updated August 6, 2009)

Out: Ancic, Blake, Gasquet, Montanes, Nalbandian, Santoro and from ALT: Almagro, Becker, Seppi, Tipsarevic, Nieminen, Clement
IN: Zverev, Sela, Querrey, Serra, Petzschner, Hewitt
NEXT: Vasallo Arguello, Beck, Gicquel
One free wildcard since Hewitt got direct entry now...

Does anyone know why Gasquet doesn't want to play???

Hope Ferrero gets the WC now that Hewitt is in so some people can finally STFU.

about Gasquet...

Gasquet!!

I read that Richard is training with Deblicker on his premisses in Aix-en Provence and working physically with Perotte.

Probaly not ready yet so should be back in Cincy and then New Haven if he gets the Wild-Card.

[M.Safin] [T.Henman] [G.Rusedski] [A.Roddick]
