Re: Masters France BNP Paribas

I don't think so, a pay TV channel (Canal) has the rights to the event.

Re: Masters France BNP Paribas

Mahut also out (shoulder problem), I don't know who will replace him - Chardy would be great, he's from that area.

Re: Masters France BNP Paribas

A young french player would be a good idea bur according the local newspaper this morning it could be Santoro.http://www.ladepeche.fr/article/2008...-Toulouse.html
Quote:
Santoro au Palais ?
A noter que Nicolas Mahut souffrait hier soir du dos et qu'il était incertain. Au cas où il devrait déclarer forfait, il serait remplacé par Fabrice Santoro, dont chacun apprécie le style spectaculaire. La location continue sur le site «Mastersfrance.com».
Nothing on official website for the moment

Re: Masters France BNP Paribas

Great choice, Santoro said yesterday he hasn't picked up a racquet for weeks. ^^

It would be better to invite Chardy or Ouanna (they don't want him because he played only 2 of the required events instead of 3, but he was injured in Metz, he'd deserve to be there imo, he was ahead of Llodra & Co. in the Marseille-Metz-Lyon-Bercy ranking).

Re: Masters France BNP Paribas

The FFT website of the event, it might be better than the official one (but they don't have any information about the replacement for Mahut either):

Re: Masters France BNP Paribas

Ouanna is playing instead of Mahut - it's in L'Equipe already, they knew it yesterday, why couldn't they write it on the website?
