Nalbandian and Hewitt forced to pull out
Two top players will not be present next week in Paris – 2007 winner David Nalbandian and former world No1 Lleyton Hewitt. They have been replaced in the main draw by Germany's Andreas Beck and Croat Ivan Ljubicic, fresh from his win at another French tournament – the Grand Prix de Tennis in Lyon.

Re: Hewitt Out of Paris Masters?!

He hasn't been over here for the indoor swing has he - I suspect after Shanghai he planned just to go back to Australia and take some time off, get ready for next year, no need to come all the way to Europe just for Paris indoors

He hasn't been to Bercy since 04

But it's better, gives time for the knees to heel so he's fresh for the Aussie Summer.

Re: Hewitt Out of Paris Masters?!

Disappointing news though, thought he would actually give a go this year.

Re: Hewitt Out of Paris Masters?!

Not to be mean/rude, but when is Hewitt retiring? I mean he doesn't play a full schedule anymore, has nice results once in a while, and misses large chunks of the tour due to injuries/simply not playing.

Andy Roddick.Fernando Verdasco.Richard Gasquet.Tommy Haas

Re: Hewitt Out of Paris Masters?!

I read somewhere that this has been Hewitt's most active year since 2006.
When you consider that this year has seen him play more tennis than the previous two and that he's suffering a bit from tendonitis, then it's no surprise at all that he's not in Paris again.

Also, in terms of the rankings, being 16-9 is no better than being seeded 17-24 for the AO. So the smartest thing for him to do is rest up and prepare for the AO... unless he somehow ends up falling out of the top 24, but that's got to be unlikely

Re: Hewitt Out of Paris Masters?!

he owns a place in the Bahamas so it's not as if he'd have to fly all the damn way from Australia

he wasn't gonna win Bercy anyway so good riddance to him

If one of Trump's racist domestic terrorist THUGS tries to stop you from voting, STAY in line, take their picture, call the police and call 1-866-OUR-VOTE. Spanish: 866-Ve-Y-Vota. Asian Languages: 866-API-Vote. Lawyers will be ready.
