Ancic was there in 2009? I remember having seen him there but I thought this was in 2008!
he wasn't there in 2009 : I guess Truc speaks about 2008 for Ancic.
I guess Gasquet would get it if he asks, considering Monte-Carlo is nearly France, and he's got a good past here.
Anyway, Ljubicic being in the entry-list, and Safin being away from the Tour, Nalbandian using his protected ranking, there would be enough WC for Gasquet and Ancic.
But I'm not sure at all that Gasquet would ask for one : he's in the entry-list for Casablanca the week before, and Barcelona next week. And he seems to avoid French tournaments recently
He's had a very strange way of dealing with entry-lists recently : he was on the entry-lists of all South-American tournaments, and still in Sunrise this week
Well Pere Riba does the same (and even worse : he's nearly not missed a week last year
) but I didn't know that Gasquet had become a journeyman
