His ranking at the 6 week cutoff point was too low to make the cut. He was about 17th on the ALT list and chose not to enter qualifying

He doesn't make the cut in Rome either - Hamburg he has direct entry to.

Yes, he should receive 'wild card' in Monte Carlo.

He is still having some minor injuries, he needs the break and he might miss Barcelona and then Munich is his next event.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

But he didn't know he would have those minor injuries when he chose not to enter the qualies, so what is the real reason why he didn't enter the event?

If he was hoping to get a WC in a (half-)French AMS, that was pretty naive.

his season has begun in September and since then he hasn't stopped.
Probably, 6 weeks back, he thought: if I've a direct entry (or a WC) OK, but otherwise I will have to stop ....

I am only supposing but is suggestive that he has only commit for the MD but not for qualy

He didn't enter the AO qualies either and wasn't expecting a WC there, so why would he expect a wildcard into Monte Carlo?

Looking for something that isn't there.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Re: Vamos canas (anyone know when hes gonna play again?)

I'm not looking for something, I just don't get his schedule. It doesn't make any sense to me not to enter a Masters Series where he can get so many more points than in a normal event.

(As for the AO, some people said he just didn't enter the qualies in time?)

You don't have to enter qualies 6 weeks before. Ok, qualified for Indian Wells, then qualified and made the final in Miami. Flies to Sweden and has to adjust from a slow hardcourt to a fast ice rink and he had a minor leg problem as well. Well cumulative effects from a lot of tennis in a short space of time. Canas with hampered movement is Karlovic without the serve.

No, he made a decision not to enter the AO qualies cause winning the Sao Paulo CH was equivalent to a 3rd round at the AO and for him to do that he would have to have won 5 matches. At the time he and Etlis took that choice.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".
