JC deserves a WC for Hamburg !!

Hi,

I`m very upset and annoyed at the moment as Rome hasn`t given JC a WC and also Hamburg hasn`t announced anything yet.

I wrote to the Hamburg tournament director, Mr Walter Knapper, last week and I got the reply that they are in contact with JC`s management, but nothing is decided yet.
It`s so unfair how they all treat him- last year they advertised their tournament with him on their posters in Hamburg and now he isn`t good enough anymore ??

Maybe it would help if more of us wrote to the tournament ??
And if it doesn`t change anything in the end at least we would have tried !!!

Here`s the official address:

Re: JC deserves a WC for Hamburg !!

IMO theres very little chance hes gonna get one, especially if rome didn't get him one. but all we can do is try!

How many times must we of shot nerves witness the undoubted pain & suffering of muppets everywhere before we stand up against the cavemen??

One muppet, who wishes to remain anonymous, has this to say: "You know, I uhhhh cannot stay all the time at the you know, base of the line. Too much uhhhh pression."

Re: JC deserves a WC for Hamburg !!

Hey guys, I met Knapper in Monte Carlo. He told me that JCF asked for a WC but they have a rule that only Germans will get one. So it looks like no chance for JCF.

Re: JC deserves a WC for Hamburg !!

I think Hamburg giving their available wildcards to Germans is fair and not to mention sensible to try and encourage their lower ranked players in a home tournament. But, giving JC one would have given a guy the chance he needs to make the step back into the swing on the ATP tour and that may have come in very useful.

The Tennis Diet:
On the eve of the Roddick/Cilic match, my brother made Seafood Marinara. Can't eat it,
it's not part of the diet; it is enemy food. ie. Marin-ara Cilic.
I also did not eat Curry 'cos it rhymes with Murray.


I fangirl for Roddickulous, Youzhless and the Djoke.

Re: JC deserves a WC for Hamburg !!

I am supportrice of ferrero for a long time, and if he must play the
qualifications in HAMBOURGif he doesn't receive a wild card, why he would not play the qualifications? to play the qualification is not to belittle oneself
that is my opinion
Excuse my for my bad english.

Re: JC deserves a WC for Hamburg !!

he needs to play IMO. he can't go to RG without decent match practise. and a few extra wins wouldn't do him any bad
