Missing until last entry De Bakker (53):

Söderling, Murray, Berdych, Roddick, Fish, Nalbandian, Isner, Lu Yen Hsun

(Murray, Söderling, Berdych will play Barcelona next week instead)

Also Del Potro didn't use his protected ranking ... except if he's asked a wild-card

Out of those I only miss David. :p

The only two players that are a major miss for the event are Soderling and Berdych. The other guys are either weak/disinterested about clay, or injured, so therefore their absences are not a major factor.

Maybe Del potro won't play here? His clay season begins in Estoril.

Guess it was a last minute decision for Robin, he had Monte Carlo scheduled on his website earlier. Good choice.

Ljubo, Soderling and Berdych are pretty surprising. All decent clay courters and you'd expect them here.

Also good that Federer is playing this again.

I hope this. If he could win with injury against Querrey I think he hasn't too serious problem.
Until Monte-Carlo is almost one month rest.

No Del Potro? :confused: I am surprised. He'll start his clay season in Estoril, then Madrid, Rome and Roland Garros

Tennis: Murray et Berdych ā Monte-Carlo

http://www.nicematin.com/article/derniere-minute/tennis-murray-et-berdych-a-monte-carlo

On the other hand you can say that the two highest ranked players on the outside got the wildcards instead, so in the end kinda fair.

The only logic to it is that Murray realised he needs to get his shit together and that Berdych actually is quite happy with his form and wants to try continue it :shrug:

Seriously both should of just signed up and withdrawn if they didn't want to play if anything :rolleyes:

What a waste of 2 Wild Cards


The Players should enter in the first place and not waste a WC
on someone who can get in directly

Super Djoker
04-05-2011, 12:04 PM
It,s moronic Giving a wild Card to Berdych or Murray Berdych is Ranked 7th in the world and Murray Hileriously is Ranked 4th! Give a wild card to someone who can,t enter threw there ranking who looks like they deserve a crack. Muzza will waste it . wouldent be surprised if whoever he plays in the first round wipes the floor with him. He isent good on Clay.

Neither Murray nor Berdych wanted to play Monte Carlo when entries originally came out but circumstances change so why shouldn't they get wild cards. It is surely much better for the tournament to have players of their quality than the Balleret and Lisnards of this world.

Action Jackson
04-07-2011, 01:20 PM
Murray is a passenger on clay and Berdych should have entered.

hotdog
04-08-2011, 11:51 AM
There is a bit of confusion over whether Wawrinka entered or not as apparently he was actually on the original entry list. It is likely that the ATP made a mistake and he shouldn't have been there in the first place. There's no mention on his website about playing (or missing) Monte Carlo.

Maybe Tabasco will pull out because MC crowd doesn't appreciate him ?

I am not surprised about the low number of withdrawals. MC is a great tourney, apparently even the players appreciate it a lot, just the ATP got it wrong with making it voluntary. :rolleyes:

Expected as soon as they removed the obligatory status. I don't see this tournament giving MS1000 points for much longer. Too close after the hardcourt season for some players not to rest.

well got a feeling it will be a ferrer vs nadal final or at least sf,so if ferrer is nadal biggest challenge than dont worry hes as good as got it won which means this tournament is a waste of time
