Yes, that is odd. There are only 4 Q spots in the Q draw...

Re: Marseille Entry List/Fact Sheet (updated February 14, 2009)

I listened to the audio interview of Caujolle (the tournament director) on the tournament website and he explains why he picked Dimitrov rather than Davydenko "who was another option".
He doesn't need to explain why Dimitrov, we got it, I was waiting for his reason not to give a 3rd WC! It doesn't make sense to me.
He could also have given it to Mahut who will be there to play doubles. Nico probably didn't want to take a WC away, just coming back from a long injury break, and he didn't want to go through the qualies, but if nobody was going to get that WC anyway...

I know, it's weird, maybe I got it wrong.
I can't be bothered listening to the whole thing again, TBH.

But Davydenko was in talk for the WC during the week, it was already mentioned in the thread. It sounded all the time like he had too many options for the WC.

Why would they give a WC to Davidenko if he wanted to enter this tournament, with his ranking he would have been seeded #2. The WC are meant to be given to young and promising players such as Dimitrov, that have the qualities but dont have the ranking to get into big tournaments.
