why not go with someone like Gajdasova?
I thought your post was in reference to Millman, although he has played on clay.

Jarka is injured and withdrew from the tournament altogether, I think. There really aren't better options than Barty though. Maybe TA should have decided not to award the WC at all, but that doesn't do you any favors as a national organization that later relies on those players to play Fed Cup (and Hopman Cup).

Re: Roland Garros Entry List/Fact Sheet (updated May 15, 2013)

Nalby and Murray probably out, likely Fish as well. Who will get Monfils's WC?



Matosevic, Hanescu, Lorenzi, Kukushkin, Chiudinelli, Gulbis, Bozoljac, Gabashvili, Hernych, Brown, Garcia-Lopez, Rosol, Zeballos, Istomin, Kohlschreiber, Tursunov, Robert, Gonzalez, Monaco, Thiem, Seppi

I know it's wrong forum but Gajdosova is injured - has been for at least a month, Rodionova is not on TA's priority list and Dellacqua, Rogowska and Jones have done nothing to suggest they should get one. Barty made WTA quarters this year as well.

She's still been sidelined and will continue to do so for the time being.

Pouille with MD WC.

The best choice they have made.

Re: Roland Garros Entry List/Fact Sheet (updated May 16, 2013)

One withdrawal will only put Monfils in the MD no ? So the QD won't be affected except if the FFT gives Monfils' WC to a French player in qualies.

Re: Roland Garros Entry List/Fact Sheet (updated May 16, 2013)

its as you said, but for sure they will give the wc to a player in the qualies, probably ouanna or herbert and so, an alternate would move in
