Soderling's win over saulnier confirms that Sweden qualifies and France don't.
The 8th team is a wild card... it's anyone's guess who the organizers will choose...
Last year it was no brainer since Germany didn't qualify...

BTW... it makes no difference which players eventually play... the qualification is based solely on the top 2 players of each country in the year-end champions race.
Since this is the last ATP tournament of the year except the masters cup, players who are out of Paris and didn't qualify to Houston can't improve their ranking.
