Re: Come & cheer for Fab on the Tour

It was a very good fight from him (he saved 10 BPs out of 14), rebroke in that last set 2 times if i'm not mistaken etc... But he eventually lost 6-3, 3-6, 6-4.

There's still the doubles now.

Re: Come & cheer for Fab on the Tour

Very strange decision for the WC in MC, I thought he didn’t get it because he didn’t want to play in singles for some reason, but not at all according to L’Équipe! Fab says they even interviewed him for the official tournament booklet and ask him in this interview how it feels to play his 17th tournament in MC, so he really thought he would get the WC, but they gave it to Serra and Tojo instead of him. The tournament director refused to comment their choice.
He'll only play in doubles.

Here’s the article in L’Équipe:
Quote:
PAS DE RECORD POUR SANTORO.
À trente-quatre ans, Fabrice Santoro s’apprêtait à établir un nouveau record de participations en simple au tournoi de Monte-Carlo (17 !), mais son classement au moment des inscriptions (57e) était à peine insuffisant (Mirnyi, dernier entrant, 55e…) pour intégrer directement le tableau du tournoi…« Je m’attendais à recevoir une wild-card puisque, il y a un mois et demi, un journaliste m’avait interviewé pendant une demi-heure pour le compte du programme officiel du tournoi, me demandant ce que ça me faisait, dix-sept Monte-Carlo… » Finalement, l’interview est bien dans le programme officiel, mais Santoro, pas invité en simple (le directeur du tournoi, Zeljko Franulovic, n’a pas souhaité commenter les choix du comité au sujet des wild-cards attribuées à Balleret, Mathieu, Serra et T. Johansson), ne disputera que le double en Principauté.

Very stupid. And I imagine he was too late for qualification ?

Re: Come & cheer for Fab on the Tour

Yes, he hadn't entered the qualies. Serra had and would have played anyway even without the WC.

I'm so pissed by their decision, I e-mailed them about it, I needed to vent.
Possibly his last MC. And he missed the direct entry for 2 spots only. What a bunch of idiots.

Re: Come & cheer for Fab on the Tour

This decision really makes zero sense too me as Serra would have played qualies and I am pretty sure Santoro is more of a fan favorite than Serra, but I am not that sure about what happened with the DC and could that be part of the reason for WC for Fab?
