Gasquet's appeal to play Murray on Tuesday rejected.

From a Chinese source.

Apparently Murray supported the appeal but it was rejected by the organizers.

Fair play to Murray

Well, Murray is a bit sick I believe, so it would have been a good thing for both of them.

Because Gasquet only arrived in Paris today he wanted until Tuesday to play Murray.. Murray agreed thinking it was fair to allow Gasquet another day to recover form playing last week..But organisers want Gasquet vs Murray to happen tomorrow.. and they insist this will happen.

Re: Gasquet's appeal to play Murray on Tuesday rejected.

I heard from the BBC commentators that Djokovic and Almagro were the only big seeds playing Monday, but they could have been wrong I suppose.

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

I didn't mishear, that's what they said But you're right, it doesn't make much sense.

Of course he supports it, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, next week, murray's 50th birthday, any day they play, there'll only be one winner and it's not Gasquet.

Usually some matches from the other half are also played on Monday.

Re: Gasquet's appeal to play Murray on Tuesday rejected.

Tomorrow's a public holiday in France, it makes sense that the organisers would schedule a match like that then. I hope Gasquet will have something left in the tank...

I guess Richie's stamina will be an issue after-all.

Should be a good match even with two cripples.

Sick vs. tired.

Makes for a very fun potential match!

Sick and fish out of water on clay vs tired and probably in need of a cocaine fix.

Double fun.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.
