Ok, all we know so far is that David will be seeded 7th, because Hewitt has withdrawn, so unless someone else does that too, he will be the 7th favourite.
I'm not too excited about this tournament, but I'm hoping this will change next week ;)
FWY, he reached the QF last year, losing to Coria.
Vamos David!!! :yeah:

He's been playing such bad tennis lately that is very hard to get excited...

It's really hard for me to believe that he's playing. Oh, well.....

Yeah, he'll be playing for sure...

Hewitt has withdrawn, and I seriously doubt Agassi and Roddick will be playing... They still have three days to withdraw...

To my knowledge, Hewitt withdrew weeks ago with a toe injury; Agassi had said that he didn't plan to play there; and Roddick, we don't know his status yet. Of course, the players all have until Saturday to withdraw officially.

:lol: call me an idiot but I'm really looking forward to seeing how he goes during the clay season. I have a good feeling this is the surface where he will rediscover his confidence and string together some good results.

You are confident, aren't you?

Vamos David. Hopefully this 2 week break has you good! :)
The clay court swing is the part of the season where david is under most pressure; he's got a ton of points to defend. I just have this feeling that david will break his title drought during the clay court swing.
I doubt that a-rod will play because he said after his loss in miami that his next tournament was houston, and he has a wrist injury.

We can only hope ...maybe he can make a big surprise..that can happen :unsure:

I really hope so..

David is usually very good when we least expect it, so yeah, it could happen...

Remember Monte Carlo is his first tourney after recovery? He made AF, which is a quite good returing. :yeah: i hope he can do it again this year or even better. Monte Carlo isn't a big case for many top players, i even wonder if Roger will play it or not. This make a good chance for David.
Vamos! :bounce:

Don't frea out, but in an Italian news site there's a list with all the players that will take part in the event and David is not listed, so now people is saying he has withdrawn, although he's still in the official site and there are no news on this :confused:

You know how long it takes for the official site to update. They still have crap up about last year, so don't panic just yet. I'll check it later and see what they say. This is bizarre.

Hey, Jime, the official draw is not out yet, so we wait.

Yeah, Tiff. We should wait, after all he's in Monaco and hasn't withdrawn officially. I wanna believe the Italian press just made a mistake and did not include him...

I saw the list, but if there is some news, they'll report it soon. The official site is slow at updating.

jazz_girl
04-08-2005, 05:39 PM
But I think they just upadeted it, cause yesterday Agassi was still in.
However Debstah just told me that the deadline to withdraw was an hour ago, so the official list should be out any moment now...

sigmagirl91

That's because Monte Carlo was never on Agassi's list to begin with, and that may also be the case with Haas.
To me, the list only reflected the players who had committed to playing the tournament as of 2/28 (?!). Then, they have the disclaimer below the list "subject to change". Do you think they'd go through the trouble of changing it now?

jazz_girl
04-08-2005, 08:16 PM
A lot of players in the alternate list are in the Main Draw...

sigmagirl91
04-08-2005, 08:18 PM
So, you can't really rely upon that list. Ok...so we wait :mad: This is insane.

I know!!! I don't get it, because everything was fine and he went to Monte Carlo two days ago : confused: I don't now what to think cause till now just an Italian site says that he has withdrawn, and no other info, except the qualy draw which indicates that a lot of players have withdrawn...

This gets even more bizarre. I wonder what the main draw will look like once it's released. The qualy draw looks as big as the main draw would look. That's a big sign there.....

To be fair, it does take a few days for the carrier pigeons to get the news into Argentina.

You're right, Jazz, even in a Voz del Interior, they say David will play ! :eek:

OK. All this story was starting to annoy me so I've checked the site of L'Equipe.fr, which is a very serious and well-informed daily Sport paper here. Usually, when players do retire or withdraw from tournaments, they announce the news in the following hours. And there's absolutely nothing concerning David. Hope it helps to reassure you! ;)
