Great to see atleast three aussies in the draw this year with Hewitt, Luczak and the wildcard hoping it goes to Lindahl or Ball both in not bad form. Also we have just under 10 aussies in the qualies so that might give us some chance to get a few here in Roland Garros.

If a player uses his PR to enter an event and withdraws after the draw was made (but before the start of the tournament), does it count as one of the tournaments played with his PR?

The week before the event he got sick and he withdrew from the event as a precaution because he didn't want to waste a PR if he wasn't able to play. But I'm not sure how it actually works:shrug:

Will Gaudio ask for a wild-card again ?

I had read that his goal was to get a direct entry but he's really had terrible results since te beginning of the year then he missed it by far :confused:

If a player uses his PR to enter an event and withdraws after the draw was made (but before the start of the tournament), does it count as one of the tournaments played with his PR?

at least what I know is that he gets a zero-pointer in his ranking for this tournament, as it already happened to Moya this year.

Whats wrong with Del Potro.

WallaceEMann
05-07-2010, 09:50 AM
Whats wrong with Del Potro.

Having an operation on his wrist. According to reports the rest of his season is in doubt.

Also, isn't Odesnik ruled out of RG because of the voluntary provisional suspension that he took with the ITF?

From the ITF Press Release:
Odesnik accepts provisional suspension

The International Tennis Federation announced today that, from Friday, 16 April, Wayne Odesnik (USA) has accepted a voluntary provisional suspension from all events covered under the Tennis Anti-Doping Programme, including Grand Slam tournaments, ATP-sanctioned events and ITF-sanctioned tournaments.

In accordance with normal policy, the ITF does not intend to make further comment on this matter until its resolution.

The Tennis Anti-Doping Programme is a comprehensive and internationally recognised drug-testing programme that applies to all players competing at tournaments sanctioned by the ITF, ATP and Sony Ericsson WTA Tour. Players are tested for substances prohibited by the World Anti-Doping Agency and upon a finding that a Doping Offence has been committed, sanctions are imposed in accordance with the requirements of the World Anti-Doping Code. More background information on the Programme, sanctions, tennis statistics and related information can be found at www.itftennis.com/antidoping.

Unfortunate about Davydenko. Surprised he isn't going to be ready for the French. Hope he's back as soon as possible.

Haas and Del Po may be back for the US Open, in Del Po's case, maybe later.

Igor messed up his ankle and is out for a while. Sucks because this is the tournament for him to perform well at.

Blake will be back for grass.

The withdrawal list this year will be huge. Already 5. Tursunov, Stepanek are definite candidates for withdrawals. I wouldn't be surprised to see Ram withdraw. Dent will almost definitely withdraw. Then you have guys like Simon, Berdych, Gicquel, Tsonga, Gonzalez, Nalbandian, Robredo, Ferrero, Lapentti, Janko, Zverev, Roddick, all of which who are under an injury cloud. I expect to see the entry list go down to around 108-110 definitely.

well its true that a lot of players will withdraw but most of them will wait until the last moment (like nalbandian ) to see if there is a little chance to play .so we will have a lot of LL players and not a lot of ALT in the draw before monday night (when the qualy draw is made ) .

stepanek is confirmed, i remeber reading it somehwere in this forum but cant remember where, so thats 6 and tursunov,dent and simon are out if theyre sensible so that's 9.

robredo is most likely to play he says on his site that he's confident he will, tipsarevic is only sick so he should be okay, same with roddick and ferrero is confirmed to be playing. I dont think tsonga and berdych are hurt enough to miss the french.Gonzalez is set to play an exhibition tournament soon so we'll see how he is soon.

i have absolutely no idea about nalbandian, zverev, gicquel or lapentti but i'll go ahead and wildly guess that nalbandian will play atleast

Yes, you are absolutely right. I don't really like that too, because then guys who would have made the tournament don't get in, and it basically takes away 2 players' chances at competing. But yeah, there is going to be a fair amount of LL's in the draw this year.

9 players, and that's without the lucky losers. I wonder why there have been so many injuries this year, it's crazy. But with all of these players hurt or coming off being hurt, it is going to make for some good opportunity for lesser ranked players.

Anyway, thank you for the information :wavey: Gonzo, yeah, he's a definitely question mark, he plays on Wednesday I think in some French exho, so he will I guess make his decision then. Glad JCF is going to play. Janko has been on and off the court so much this season it seems that I didn't know why he pulled out of Madrid, glad it's only a sickness. I guess Berdych should be recovered from his injuries by RG time since he would have taken over 2 weeks off, same for Nole. Andy I knew was only sick, I was really wondering if he simply would have aborted the clay season all together since he pretty much has done little to nothing to prepare to play the French.

I know Tsonga has a back issue, was it just precautionary his retirement in Madrid? Nalby, I wonder will his torn hamstring will be healed in time, and whether he will take the risk of tearing it again. I guess we'll just have to wait as this next week goes by to see what happens.

stepanek is confirmed, i remeber reading it somehwere in this forum but cant remember where, so thats 6 and tursunov,dent and simon are out if theyre sensible so that's 9. There were several Czech articles a few days ago quoting Steps saying that he would come back in Prostejov, but he hasn't pulled out yet, so there's nothing confirmed.

Simon won't play, that's sure, his coach confirmed it.

Gicquel said this week in Bordeaux that he is still doubtful, I think he will wait until the very last minute.

Tsonga repeatedly said he will be fine for RG, he is training and he will play the exho this week.

But there are even more injured players than the ones mentioned.
I haven't seen any updates about Petzsche's injury.

@ Hi manu86, forgive my ignorance...but could you or anyone else for that matter, mind explaining how the LL is allocated if a player withdraw after the qualifying rounds have begun or completed.
Will the alternates still get a share of it (if there was multiple withdrawals)?

After reading several posts here I gather that those who tried in the qualifying stages but failed has priority over alternates?

Withdrawals before the deadline are replaced by alternates; late withdrawals are replaced by lucky losers.

well if i know well enought the rules ,its like that .
its like in school ,if you WD late ,after the qualy started ,you have to come to the tournament and be cheked by the organization doctor and to show your injury .
if you dont do that and you had no real reason or you dont appear to the doctor ,so you receive the penalized .

i hope that i dont have any mistake .

its not official yet ,in the argentian newspaper they wrote that almoust for sure he will be out and he will try to comeback in wimbledon but only nalbandian can said if he WD .
but apparently he will be out today ,if not i think he still have chances to play becouse he will wait until the last moment to see if he is fit to play .

If I'm not wrong, he's this will be his fifth tourny back with PR becuz he got into Delray Beach with a WC, and he played 4 challengers with PR so far..And if i'm not wrong he can use PR for 8 tournies

I thought Rafa was going to be seeded no. 2, but the entry list still has Djoker in the no. 2 spot :confused:

The entry list and the seeded players are two different things. Players who qualify for the tournament are decided by the rankings of 6 weeks before the tournament begin. Seeds are decided by the rankings of the previous week, so that's the reason why Nadal is 3 in the entry but will be the second seed

Your wish is granted. I too will be VERY curious to see how he does next week in the French Open main draw. Hopefully he plans to use up the rest of his PR spots in the grass events, as that is where he really seemed to shine in '08.

Nishikori is IN - confirmed by RolandGarros.org:
"Three more players have pulled out of the men's singles draw on Tuesday. 1998 winner Carlos Moya, David Nalbandian and Ivo Karlovic have all had to withdraw through injury, but they did so just before the qualifiers started, meaning that Robby Ginepri and Taylor Dent from the US and Japanese Bollettieri academy player Kei Nishikori were moved up just in time".

lucky losers come in after the qualifying play has started, so the deadline was today at 9.00 am Paris time

Damn, I never het these rules straight, sorry. But with almost a week to go, I expect a lot of LLs...

Anyone know how many withdraws have taken place in the MD since the qualy draw was made Monday? I thought it was at least two, which means I guess that Alves and Devvarman are definitely in :confused:

No, there is a draw in Slams for the LL to be sure the players don't tank in the last round of the qualies.

They will take the 4 best ranked players who lost in the last qualies round and will draw them.
If there are 3 LL spots available, they will make a draw with the 5 best ranked, etc.

What's the surface like this year? as fast as the last year, as fast as in Madrid or rather slow?

Following the qualifying results, the surface seems to be as fast as last year (at least)

Last year, the commentators were all saying that Philippe Chatrier was noticably quicker than the other courts. I don't think any of them are as fast as Madrid, but that is just my semi educated guess.

I can't even believe Taylor is still in the draw either. I doubt he plays, and he would be silly to play.

Acasuso will get in, even if he loses! There are 17 open spots for Qualifiers so therefore he'll get in as a Lucky Loser (16 today's winners will proceed to the 1st round + 1 lucky loser). And Acasuso has the highest ranking from all today's losers, so i'm sure he knows it and that's why he's throwing this match

he'll be in a draw along with Ventura, Ilhan and the fourth highest-ranked player that lost today (I don't know exactly who it is)

flyboy you were right about the fact that 4 players enter a draw, i didn't know about that_thanks..."the four highest ranked players who lose in the last round of qualification take part in a four-way random draw" (wiki pedia). But they don't mention anything about retirement, so i'm really eager to find out if Acasuso will or will not be in the draw

espana
05-21-2010, 06:05 PM
did acususo retire just to get a lucky loser spot or is he actually hurt and unable to play?

if he cant play that means marsel ilhan should be in

it he can play then he's an asshole and marsel still needs one more withdrawl

i wanna know that too, so was anybody out there on court 6 and saw Acasuso playing? He shouldn't get it, it's just not fair and unethical!

Montego
05-21-2010, 06:29 PM
Acasuso won't necessarily enter as a LL, cause LLs in GS are drawn randomly, at least it has been like that in the past.

Wikipedia:
...a new policy was introduced in Grand Slam tournaments. Since 2006, the four highest ranked players who lose in the last round of qualification take part in a four-way random draw, the results of which are used to determine the order in which each player will enter the main draw. Consequently, if only one main draw spot for a lucky loser is available, the highest-ranked loser has just a 25% chance of entering the draw, instead of 100% as in the past. This element of uncertainty helps to ensure that final-round qualifying matches remain competitive. However, this rule does not apply in all other tournaments.
So who's it gonna be? Acasuso, Ventura, Ilhan & Kindlmann; or
Ventura, Ilhan, Kindlmann, Deheart? (If they really draw it randomly).
Like i said there's 1 open spot for lucky loser as of today (more players might withdraw in next days)

espana
05-21-2010, 07:24 PM
i found this, official rules:
If a player is forced to retire or withdraws from the
Qualifying, however, he may retain his right to Lucky
Loser status for the duration of the Tournament provided
that:
(i)
He signs in with the Supervisor by the Lucky Loser
deadline each day;
(ii)
He receives a medical examination from the
Tournament Physician and PHCP;
(iii) The Main Draw match is not scheduled for the same
day he retired/withdrew from his Qualifying match

I'm dying to know if they really did the draw with 4 players and randomly picked Ventura, or if they just followed the ranking and naturally they skipped Acasuso, since he's "injured" and therefore they gave it to Ventura as the highest-ranked player

2nd part of your question - 30 minutes before first match...

(a)
Alternates’ Sign-In deadline is 30 minutes prior to the
scheduled start of play for the day.
(b)
An Alternate or Lucky Loser is not required to sign in one
day to be eligible as an Alternate/Lucky Loser another
day. (This applies to singles and doubles Alternates and
to Lucky Losers).
(c)
An on-site Alternate is eligible to substitute for all 1st
round matches and for 2nd round matches when the
player or team has had a 1st round bye.

i sound like such a bad person for hoping marsel gets in that way and i hate for someone to have to withdraw because they are hurt but..its just so disappointing to have the only 2 people you wanted to qualify both lose in the final round.
