Agassi, the #5 seed, has a first round bye and will face either Tommy Haas or Michael Llodra in the second round with potential showdowns with Tim Henman in the quarters & Andy Roddick in the semis.

'Coria and Ferrero out of Paris Masters

Argentina's Guillermo Coria and Spain's Juan Carlos Ferrero pulled out of the Paris Masters on Friday, joining world number one Roger Federer on the casualty list before the last Masters Series tournament of the season.

http://www.eurosport.com/imgbk/TENNIS/ALL/big_MD-I106352.jpg

Coria, fifth in the ATP rankings, has injured a shoulder while former world number one Ferrero pulled out of next week's 2.425 million dollar event with illness.

Australian Lleyton Hewitt and Spain's Carlos Moya, however, who both missed last week's Madrid Masters through injury, will play in the Paris indoor tournament.

Tournament director Alain Riou said on Thursday that the organisers of Masters Series tournaments were "very concerned" with the growing number of top players missing their events.

Federer's withdrawal, however, had been expected after a thigh injury forced him out of the Madrid Masters and the Swiss Indoors event, currently underway in Basel.'

There will be a lot of very interesting matches (Agassi vs Haas, maybe A.A. vs Verdasco :-), Safin vs Ljubicic and hopefully A.A. vs Roddick). It will be hard play to Andre, but he is able to win in Paris. Go Andre!

In 2nd Round (he skips 1st) Andre will play vs winner of match:


HAAS, Tommy (GER) vs LLODRA, Michael (FRA)
(see time schedule http://www.bnpparibasmasters.org/)


P.S. Andre would play vs Haas twice during 1 week?!!!
Too much, Llodra - beat Haas!

Yes, Haas is very dangerous, 7-6, 7-6 now, but he will play one more match before meet Andre. And this will be the first (!!!) match of Andre.

Two recent withdrawals effect Agassi's quarter of the draw:

On Friday, J. Johansson, the #9 seed, withdrew (viral infection). Spadea was named the #17 seed & took J-Jo's place in the draw; Spadea will be replaced by Mariano Zabaleta.

On Sunday, Carlos Moya, the #4 seed, withdrew (shoulder injury). Tommy Haas was named the #18 seed & took Moya's place in the draw; a qualifier or lucky loser will replace Haas.

Agassi will now face either Michael Llodra or a qualifier/lucky loser in the second round.

Andre Agassi, the former world number one, who reached the final of the Stockholm Open on Sunday, has pulled out of the Paris Masters due to a hip injury. As a result, Marat Safin and Tim Henman qualify for the Masters Cup in Houston beginning on 13 November, which you can follow live on Eurosport.


Good bye for Houston too! :-((((

Andre Agassi
The American legend will not play in Bercy for the second year in a row.



Andre Agassi a déclaré forfait pour le BNP Paribas Masters. L'Américain a simplement fait indiquer aux organisateurs, par son agent, qu'il souffrait de sa blessure récurrente à la hanche droite. Il est remplacé dans le tableau final par le Roumain Victor Hanescu, lucky loser.

David Nalbandian, initialement admis comme tête de série n°8, a également déclaré forfait sans préciser la raison. Il a toutefois indiqué qu'il se ferait examiner dans la journée par le médecin du tournoi, le docteur Bernard Montalvan. Pour sa part, Nalbandian est remplacé dans le tableau final par un autre lucky-loser, l'Italien Davide Sanguinetti.

Andre Agassi has withdrawn from the BNP Paribas Masters. The American had his agent notify the tournament organization that he was suffering from his reoccurring right hip injury. He is replaced in the main draw by Romanian lucky-loser Victor Hanescu.

David Nalbandian, initially N° 8 seed of the BNP Paribas Masters, has also pulled out of the tournament, without providing the organization with an official reason. He has however indicated that he will have the tournament doctor, Bernard Montalvan, examine him today, Monday November 1st.
Nalbandian is replaced in the main draw of the BNP Paribas Masters by Italian lucky-loser Davide Sanguinetti.


My both fav players....

Roddick defends 'injured' stars
From correspondents in Paris
November 3, 2004
FORMER world No.1 Andy Roddick today leapt to the defence of Paris Masters no-shows Roger Federer and Andre Agassi.

Officials are furious with Agassi's last minute withdrawal, arguing that the lucrative nine-event Masters series was discredited and met to discuss what measures could be taken to stem the crisis.

The gravity of the situation was almost embarrassingly highlighted by the humble figure of Italian journeyman Davide Sanguinetti.

The player ranked 109 in the world had lost in qualifying but was called back as a lucky loser and then fast-tracked into the second round to plug the gap left by Agassi.

Today he took a one-set lead over Sweden's Robin Soderling before eventually running out of steam and losing 4-6 7-6 (8-6) 6-0.

Roddick, the top seed and who skipped the Monte Carlo and Madrid Masters this year, lashed out at those officials who are demanding financial penalties against players who skip the top tournaments.

"In what other sport do you play 11 months of the year?," asked the American.

"I am going to finish my season on December 5 and start next year on January 5. I would rather pull out of an event than injure myself. If they can't understand the way an athlete works, it's too bad."

Directors of four of the five European-based Masters events met here today and decided to press the ATP, the governing body, to introduce sanctions in order to protect the integrity of the events.

They will also meet their American counterparts at the Masters Cup in Houston later this month to discuss what further measures can be taken.

One of the moves being considered, AFP understands, is to attempt to reinstate the end-of-season bonus pool to encourage more players to take part in the Masters events.

Agassi, twice a champion here, told organisers he had injured his right hip in his final defeat in Stockholm at the weekend.

He was immediately joined on the sidelines by Argentina's David Nalbandian, who was to be the eighth seed, who said he had a knee injury.

World No.1 Federer, former French Open champions Carlos Moya and Juan Carlos Ferrero of Spain and world No.5 Guillermo Coria of Argentina all pulled out last week leaving five of the world's top 10 missing from this tournament.
