Apparently to help the transition to the uber-slow WTF.

If it's as slow as Basel, I will shed a tear... last year's Paris was amazing.
Well what do you know.

SE to Nishikori if he can beat Kukushkin.

  • Tomas Berdych beating Roger in Cincy - start of a good late season run
  • Radek Stepanek winning D.C. - back to top 30, top 20 next
  • Lukas Rosol RG R3, challenger titles - deserves top 100

Support also: Söderling, del Potro, Gulbis, Berankis

Re: Qualifying Entry List (updated November 3, 2011)

So Muller pulled out because he can get directly into MD?

Ljubicic tweeted after his Basel defeat to Mayer that his 2011 season is over, so Muller will get direct entry if he wants.

Malisse would also get into the MD if Nishikori loses to Kukushkin in Basel, or there is a further withdrawal in the next few hours.

Job done.

So, with Ljubicic out and the SE allocated to Nishikori (if he wants it), the next alternate is Malisse.

Nishikori won, but had he lost or if he refuses to play Bercy the SE spot was for Kukushkin or will be open for Baghdatis, Querrey or Monaco.

Sorry, my comment followed the conversation in the qualifying thread.

Muller would get a MD place with Ljubicic withdrawing; Malisse next alternate after that, awaiting another withdrawal (now that SE will be awarded).

Muller was the last direct entry.

Malisse finishes his season this weekend with the Basel doubles.

Yes, that was my fault, I was confused with his WC in Valencia, but his ranking was high enough for Bercy.

  • Tomas Berdych beating Roger in Cincy - start of a good late season run
  • Radek Stepanek winning D.C. - back to top 30, top 20 next
  • Lukas Rosol RG R3, challenger titles - deserves top 100

Del Potro is out.. Will he now be replaced by an alternate (Malisse) or by a lucky loser ?
