REALLY! He's been cleared and it's completely legal for him to play. (Although they might be afraid he'll withdraw and would have wasted a WC - naw, that was the old Richie).

Looking forward to seeing him play tonight - perfect time for me, about 10:30 pm. Glad it's not one of those 3-4 am matches. Last night I was working on my laptop and came across the live stream. The only one I could get was pretty bad - it must have been a fixed camera in the stands and in the little I watched the camera angle never shifted and you almost needed binoculars to see the player on the far side but better than just a scoreboard "fur shuuure"
Good luck Richie!

Oh good I'll have company when I get up at 4.30am to watch him.

I hope that article is just speculation. I thought the FFT was behind him.

He needs seven more (Nalbandian won't play this year) withdrawals (not unlikely for Bercy), go through qualifying or get a WC for Bercy. If the Bercy-tourney really refuses him a wild-card (which still has to be seen), public opinion - which was not always his greatest ally - will swing hugeley in favour for him.

If he has any issues with France may I suggest we have a very good tax rate for athletes and we pay 70k a year to top athletes

Tommy Robredo
Tursunov Wawrinka Berankis Gasquet Dimitrov Korolev McGee

I couldnt care less about Ana's predicament when there is an incredibly large frog to be fascinated by.

The article I posted suggests that the FFT might not give him a wc. Looks like speculation though really. They haven't ever commented on it as far as I know.

There are a bunch of links at www.tennisform.com but the only one I seem to be able to get is the one at ATDHE, the rest appear to be unavailable in the US.

He is standing too far back for me to see him on the stream.

Link at fromsport works now http://www.fromsport.com/video-83906.html

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?
