Great indoor list considering the schedule.

Llodra skipping indoor event in France? Crazy stuff.

The Fog appearing where you least expect. The myth is growing...

This is due to France's Davis cup tie against Canada which is straight after this and France are also playing away.

Considering that Robin has already withdrawn from a Slam event that is only two weeks before this tournament, I don't have much hope in him playing here. In fact I doubt we'll se him in the indoor season at all, but I hope I'm wrong.

Soderling to make his return here? Hopefully, the game needs more players who can challenge those at the very top (not that Sod was very successful at it, but he at least had a chance of winning).

Soderling will miss Montpellier, Rotterdam and Davis Cup (

Davydenko has a WC in Montpellier. He's direct entry in Marseille

Will Monfils pull out ? He's injured

IMO, he most likely will considering he will be part of the French side who travel to Canada which takes place after this tournament..

Kohli and Florian playing here the week before Davis Cup on Clay?

PHM deserves a WC.

2nd WC: P.H.Mathieu

I won't be surprised to see Berdych withdraw from here, he lost on late Tuesday night in Australia and won't probably reach Europe until Thursday.
He most likely would want a rest, considering he's played the Hopman Cup and the Exho in Kooyong just before the Australian Open.

Kohlschreiber looks strong. He has just been a little unlucky lately.

Clément "Mr retirement" will have the 3rd WC ?

Clement is injured still. He said at the weekend it was too early to return in Montpellier.

01-25-2012, 09:54 AM
So Benoit Paire could have the 3rd WC ?

Marcel still has pain though he is better. I'm not sure he will be okay. :scared: :hug:

He was committed in Zagreb anyway he's injured.

Robert and Roger-Vasselin have big chances to direct entry so the last Wc could go to a young french. De Schepper ?

I don't know if Berdych will play but the tournament looks open.

01-25-2012, 08:04 PM
Any news if Monfils will play?

Certinfy
01-26-2012, 05:09 PM
If Berdych does play I hope he plays the way he did at the AO and at the Hopman cup, been far too long since he's won an ATP 250. :o

JurajCrane
01-26-2012, 06:48 PM
Roger Vasselin is IN in Zagreb, will he play there or in Montpellier ? Just asking because of Lukas Lacko direct entry in Zagreb.

Any news about some withdrawals ? Mostly I mean Florian Mayer, Gael Monfils.

Sonja1989
01-26-2012, 07:11 PM
ERV is out from Zagreb, it seems he wants to play here.

They are still in but no idea what they want.

Flo Mayer said on his website he would play here and Kühnen (davis cup captain) also confirmed it during an on-court interview at the Heilbronn challenger about an hour ago.

01-26-2012, 07:39 PM
Monfils should play doubles with his little brother Daryl :lol:

ERV is maybe the last WC unless someone else withdraws.

If ERV would receive a WC, then it will be great, thanks ;)

Granollers has pulled out :bigcry: :bigcry: He just started the training today so it isn't that big surprise.

Pospisil is IN.

01-27-2012, 05:28 PM
Monfils in?

Chris.

Monfils in?

Yes. He is playing doubles with his brother.
