Chardy should get the wild-card, he hasn't won a match in the qualifying events, but he is the local player.

too bad, atleast Monfils is still there. Guez will come in for Tsonga.

Chardy gets the WC as expected.

PHM is not sure to play (groin pain). As for Gasquet, it will probably depend on the decision of the TAS which is expected next week. And I wonder how Monfils plans on playing there since he's resuming the condition training only now and hasn't picked up a racquet yet.

I wonder if Richard will play if he doesn't get the decision in time.

It starts on the 17th and I read he'll get the result on the 18th.

If gael changes his mind and Richard doesn't come the tournament directors will be mad lol it's good for guez to enter and touch the prize money. When is the draw ?

Monfils certainly won't play, he's injured again and stopped his preparation.

It's strange they say it's the wrist now because the media only said at first that he prefers to focus on his condition training.

Gael is out and Richard seems to not be qualified now so they lost all the top french players http://www.lequipe.fr/Tennis/breves2...s-forfait.html

Re: Masters France BNP Paribas 2009 (Toulouse, 17-20 Dec)

And PHM it still in doubt because of his hip, he might be replaced by Recouderc.
(Paul-Henri Mathieu, tęte de série du groupe bleu, souffre de la hanche, et par précaution, le Toulousain Laurent Recouderc, a été appelé pour pallier un éventuel forfait de « PHM ».)
