Federer, nadal, safin, agassi and moya out of TMS Paris

from the official site:

Paris-Bercy in brief

New withdrawals, new main draw entrances and Amélie Mauresmo to carry out the draw: get the latest news from Paris-Bercy.

The 20th BNP Paribas Masters tournament, which begins on Saturday 29th October on the courts of the Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy, has suffered five new withdrawals. They are the Swiss Roger Federer (torn right ankle ligament), Spain’s Rafael Nadal (tendonitis of the knee), the Russian Marat Safin (tendonitis of the knee), the American Andre Agassi (personal reasons), and the Spaniard Carlos Moya (injured right shoulder).

These withdrawals mean that Filippo Volandri (ITA), Gael Monfils (FRA), Davide Sanguinetti (ITA), Nicolas Massu (CHI) and Andrei Pavel (ROM) will now be included in the main draw for the BNP Paribas Masters 2005.

The Australian Lleyton Hewitt, meanwhile, has still not confirmed his participation to the organisers.

From the French perspective, Gael Monfils now joins Sebastien Grosjean in the main draw for the Parisian autumn tournament. Their numbers should soon be swelled by other French players benefiting from wildcards (due to be announced very shortly), while in the event of any further withdrawals, the next in line for entry to the tournament proper is Paul-Henri Mathieu.

Amelie Mauresmo to perform draw

French number one Amelie Mauresmo, currently taking it easy after a particularly packed season, is to carry out the draw for the BNP Paribas Masters 2005.

She will do so in the presence of the Chairman of the French Tennis Federation, Christian Bîmes, and Baudouin Prot, the BNP Paribas Chairman, on Friday 28th October at 18:00.

It's really a pity that this tournament had quite a number of withdrawals...

Federer and Nadal among high-profile absentees from Paris
Wed 26 Oct, 6:27 PM

PARIS (Reuters) - World number one Roger Federer and French Open champion Rafael Nadal are among five players who have pulled out next week's Paris Masters, organisers said on Wednesday.

Switzerland's Federer, winner of four 11 titles in 2005 including four Masters Series events, is sidelined with a torn ligament in his right ankle.

Spaniard Nadal, who captured his 11th trophy of the year on Sunday at the Madrid Masters, is nursing a knee injury.

Other high profile absentees include defending champion Marat Safin, with a strained tendon in his knee, Andre Agassi and former French Open winner Carlos Moya.

The sixth-ranked Agassi has opted to miss the event for personal reasons.

Organisers said Lleyton Hewitt's participation also remains in doubt and if the Australian misses the event, Andy Roddick will be the only top six player in the field.

Italians Filippo Volandri and Davide Sanguinetti, Frenchman Gael Monfils, Chili's Nicolas Massu and Andrei Pavel of Romania will replace the absent players in the draw.


Djokovic after his Madrid 2009 Semi with Rafa: “Next time I’ll probably take two rackets on the match point and try to hit with both of them. It’s frustrating that when you play so well you can’t win.”

So we will indeed have a 3rd TMS winner this season.

That's too bad. A record like this one could have lasted forever.

Tennis, Ergo Sum.

at least somebody other than fed and rafa could have a masters series shield this year.
but seriously, it is really unfortunate for the tournament that such big names would be absent..

Re: Federer, nadal, safin, agassi and moya out of TMS Paris

Word is Carlos is off on holiday.

It's a bit disappointing that now someone besides Rafa and Roger will win Paris.

Agassi doesn't want to play too much, he has to save what energy he has left for Shanghai.

I really hope they will all be back for the TMC, otherwise it will really blow.

This sucks

The ends of the last few years have been so lame since all the top players have worn themselves out byt the time the indoor season starts.

Re: Federer, nadal, safin, agassi and moya out of TMS Paris

Look what it takes for someone not named Rogelio or Rafa to win a TMS event this year.

I'm glad Rafa pulled out...very smart decision.

Hopefully Rogelio, Marat, Lleyton and Andre will be in Shanghai.



Thank you Nick for taking out the trash at Wimbledon!
Thank you Berdych for taking out the trash at AO!
