Are Roddick and Davydenko Likely To Play Shanghai?

Does it appear likely that either Roddick or especially Davydenko could skip Shanghai due to either injury (Roddick) or horrendous form (Davydenko)?

Should Nalbandian win Paris he will be #9 in the Race on 355 points so he really only needs at least Davydenko or Roddick to withdraw to take a place among the elite 8.

Otherwise, the two alternatates for Shanghai, should Nalbandian win Paris, should be Nalbandian and Robredo.

Re: Are Roddick and Davydenko Likely To Play Shanghai?

Apparently Roddick is 50-50 according to the Bryan brothers. http://msn.foxsports.com/tennis/story/7395742

I'd say Davydenko is almost certain to play considering he said he wasn't injured and was just having problems with his serve. And no, he won't be skipping an elite event because of horrendous form.

Re: Are Roddick and Davydenko Likely To Play Shanghai?

They'll be there. At least Davydenko will ($$$). I never completely trust Roddick's injuries (I'm not saying he's not injured, but he could be flaunting it to get out of playing in Paris; Europe was never his favorite part of the season anyway), but I still think he'll go to Shanghai.

Assuming he's not injured, Roddick would be crazy not to go to Shangai. He needs the matches before the DC Final.

Re: Are Roddick and Davydenko Likely To Play Shanghai?

How much money do the two alternates get paid just for turning up?

There are 10^11 stars in the galaxy. That used to be a huge number. But it's only a hundred billion. It's less than the national deficit! We used to call them astronomical numbers. Now we should call them economical numbers.
