Del Potro gets wildcard for Monte Carlo!

Has there been a thread already? Monfils a wildcard as well. Only played there once his whole career and lost the first round he played, but I doubt that will be the case this time.

Federer, Nishikori, and Querrey still not playing?

Re: Del Potro gets wildcard for Monte Carlo!

MONACO, Monaco - Seventh-ranked Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina has been given a wild card into the Monte Carlo Masters this month.

Tournament director Zeljko Franulovic announced the decision on Tuesday, having recently awarded a wild card to Frenchman Gael Monfils, whose ATP ranking has dropped to No. 104 after a year affected by knee injuries.

Novak Djokovic will play in the April 13-21 clay-court tournament. The top-ranked Serb lost last year's final to Rafael Nadal, who will be bidding for his ninth straight Monte Carlo title.

Third-ranked Roger Federer is skipping the event, but No. 2 Andy Murray, No. 4 David Ferrer and No. 6 Tomas Berdych will compete.

IIRC Federer always has a wildcard kept for him at Monte Carlo.

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.

Re: Del Potro gets wildcard for Monte Carlo!

Monte Carlo tournament forum.

Either way, don't think either of them has accepted their wildcard yet. I expect Monfils to, Del Potro not sure - kinda hope he doesn't.

MTF games titles:

Suicide Tennis (5): Wimbledon 2014, World Tour Finals 2015, Madrid 2015, Kuala Lumpur 2014 and Metz 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 WTF, 1 Masters 1000, 2 ATP 250; 2 finals lost

Fill-in-the-Draw (3): US Open 2014, Rotterdam 2013 and Geneva 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 ATP 500 and 1 ATP 250

Tennis Tipping (3): Veneza and Todi 2014 (with vn01), Knoxville 2015 (with Redkop) - 3 challengers; 7 finals lost

Oh, nvm, I completely misunderstood the article. In that case scratch everything, I don't expect him to either.

Re: Del Potro gets wildcard for Monte Carlo!

potentially Murray, Del Potro, Djokovic, Nadal, Ferrer all playing Monte Carlo
funny how the tournament is often criticized for its field but this year has a very good one and much better than, say, Miami
P.S. insane that Nadal has won it 8 times in a row, torn between wanting him to extend the record, or someone new to win. would be exciting for a change of the guard but also insane to the max if Rafael won it this many times consecutive

<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Ernest Gulbis <3

------------------------ <3 Richard Gasquet <3

Rafael Nadal

Well, not to disagree or anything, but the only big difference between the draws, on paper, is the absence of Nadal from Miami, since Federer is playing neither. 8 top 10 vs 9. Also Nishikori isn't playing here, if that means anything.

Players I support for non-tennis reasons: Murray/Ferrer/Monaco/Nadal/Isner/Li

del Potro/Nalbandian/Safin
Tsonga/Gulbis/Monfils/Dolgopolov/Verdasco
Davydenko/Kyrgios/Cilic/Muguruza
