Has Fed Taken a WC to Monte Carlo? - No. Not yet.

Is Federer robbing a lower ranked player of their chance to earn enough prize money (even for a R1 loss) to help a lot with travel expenses etc for the second year in succession? Several Italian news sites are reporting this.

OTOH, Nole being seeded #1 for a clay tournament Rafa is playing rankles and this would take care of that.

Faker should never be #1 for any tourney at TMS or above.

Do you have a source, even if it is in Italian.

I do oh so hope he has.

If he has, it's not of much importance, I guess.
"Playing half-assed at a non-Grand Slam near you"-tour 2010 continues.

a totally irrelevant list of players I like, hate and want to have a beer with, all written in cute colors

No news just speculation as of yet, but fingers crossed!

Maybe it is a late April Fool. I'm sure even after he lost in Miami Fed said he wasn't playing until Rome. I doubt he would lie.

edit: Claire says it is just speculation
That means Nole will be seeded #1 Take it Fed, rob those pointless lower ranked players like some reversed Robin Hood

Fed never lies. So he's not gonna play. That doesn't mean Rafa would win a tournament any time soon if ever.

FAN OF THE BEAUTY

the date is 4th of april then it's not April fool.

And they are affirmative
Quote:
For the second consecutive year Fed has requested and was granted a WC
BUT they are the only website saying that so far from what I know then well

Anyway if he doesn't take any WC, there will be rumours until the end of the week for sure

By the way, for those who don't know, Murray has already "robbed" a WC from Balleret or other

useless old guy

Do not despair, Linda, I have my finger on the pulse, as they say in the business. I will keep you informed about any developments.

Roger hasn't made any announcements yet (appart from the Miami presser) and MC is gonna hold a WC for him until the last minute so there is still hope

WHile Federer is anti Robin Hooding a WC from a younger player, he is giving an intermediate player the chance to beat him, so it all evens out.

Well, it would definitely make sense. The one record he still needs is the weeks at #1 record and a decent Monte Carlo showing would go some way to ensure that the record is broken.

Proud fan of Olderer, the GOAT.

Exactly,I'd put my mortgage on it that even if Fed entered he wouldn't win,heck if Grand slams were best of three he wouldn't have half as many


@Linda, Novak is back with Vajda now so can you spare us Todd's ugly mug? Pretty please
