Re: entry list

How is Monfils in? Wildcard or withdrawals?

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: entry list

Today (Friday, 6th May) organisers of the 10tele.com Open received confirmation that two of the rising stars of world tennis, the 18 year-old Frenchmen, Richard Gasquet and Gael Monfils will compete in Nottingham between 13th-18th June. Both players are regarded by many as among the brightest young prospects on the world tennis tour.

Gasquet, ranked no.59 in the world, won a tournament earlier this year in Barletta, Napoli. However, it was the 6ft tall, right hand players recent defeat of world no.1 Roger Federer (Switzerland) at the ATP Masters Series Monte Carlo that arguably highlighted the world class credentials of the Frenchman.

In what was the first ever competitive match between the two players, Gasquet won his quarter-final encounter 6-7, 6-2, 7-6.

Renowned for his speed and strong baseline strokes, the 2002 world junior number one reached his first ATP final (l/Haehnel) in Metz last year. In 2003, ranked world no.93, he finished the year as the youngest player (aged 17) within the world's top 100.

His compatriot and fellow rising star, Gael Monfils (world no.79) has entered the qualifying rounds (11th-12th June) for the 10tele.com Open. Monfils, the 2004 world junior number one, only turned professional last year after winning three of the four junior Grand Slam events (see below).

Currently ranked 79th in the world, since last year he has moved up over 700 places in the Indesit ATP entry ranking system. Earlier this year, the 6ft 3, right-hander secured his first major tournament win in Besancon, Tunis.

Patrick Hughesman, tournament director for The 10tele.com Open expressed his delight that Richard Gasquet and Gael Monfils will be in Nottingham in less than six weeks time.

Hughesman said; "Richard Gasquet has made a big impression on the circuit over the last few months, most notably by defeating Roger Federer, the world no.1 in Monte Carlo.

He's an exciting prospect; one of the young rising stars of the world tour." Hughesman added: "Gael Monfils is another young player who has captured the imagination of the tennis public. I'm sure both these players will be aiming to play well in Nottingham and stay hot on the heels of another young star, Rafael Nadal of Spain.

With the likes of world no.14 Ivan Ljubicic (Croatia) and world no.18, Thomas Johansson (Sweden) already confirmed for 13th June, the 10tele.com Open will definitely be offering tennis fans world class tennis this summer."

He's only entered in the qualifying, not the main draw (according to the article you posted).

You must have missed this heading:

Quote:
Players
The following players have announced that they will compete at this year's tournament;
Nowhere does it say "main draw" (just "will compete"). It's possible Monfils could get in directly, considering he's the third alternate, or receive a wild card, but he isn't in yet. They just added his name to the website to advertise the tournament (which is probably a sign they will give him a wild card if he doesn't get in), but for now he's only entered in the qualifying.
