The 12th team in the Doubles Race to the Championships cannot get in AMS Monte Carlo with their combined rankings.
On his website, Yves Allegro, who usually partners Michael Kohlmann, said this: "separation momentanee pour ce tournoi car avec michael on ne serait pas entre dans le tableau avec nos classements combines.."
Temporary separation for this tournament because with Michael I couldn't have been in the draw with our combined rankings.
Now Yves partners Tim Henman... and they meet Mariano Hood / Michael Kohlmann
in the first round. How weird and fucked up is this system, if they can't play together?
