Novak's final decision - playing in Marseille!

In an agreement with his coach, Riccardo Piatti, Novak Djokovic has decided not to play "Gemax Open 2006" from 13th February to 19th February 2006. After Davis Cup matches of Serbia and Montenegro in Israel this weekend, Nole is going to Marseille, where he will play in main draw if tournament organizers give him a wild card (hard courts, 489.000 €).

The first decision to play in Belgrade will directly deprive him playing on two ATP tournaments. He couldn't play in Marseille, and placement in the semifinal or final of Belgrade's event wouldn't permit him to play qualifying in Rotterdam.

No, no, no! He won't have time for Marseille because next week he will play in Israel, and he then need to hurry up in Marseille to play qualifying! It's very difficult and Novak made a good decision!

But why didn`t Nole indict for both tournaments and than decide not to play in Maseille without asking for WC? :rolleyes: They could give WC to Bozoljac or Troicki who have no ranking for beeing in MD.

it is a shame that Novak has done this, Ilija Bozoljac will not even be able to play qualifiers as he will be in Israel for the Davis Cup, Ilija is an exciting player and it is unfair to him as he was supposed to get the dc

Marat v. Novak is the last thing I ever want to see. The scoreline was painful enough the last time.

True... but still...

Well I am glad they both "may" be in the same place :p Novak still needs to get the WC first and I'm not going to hold my breath for it.

There is still no information who will get WC (and tournament starts in Monday), but on www.stevegtennis.com/forum is said that Nole is out so I think that they didn`t give WC to Nole. :mad: :sad:

Its official that Novak did not get the WC here, they gave it to 3 French players (not surprising). So after Davis Cup he won't play until Rotterdam.

MilanDokic

Yes, Jessica, Nole won't play there, he will be 100%ready for Rotterdam! I think this is the best situation!

no novak in marseille?


owwww.......... BOOOO

but that means novakito's next appearance will be in rotterdam, which means my spies in rotterdam can stalk him for MEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :bounce: :bounce:

and by the way...marat's stalking novak...he's going to rotterdam too. or so they say.

it is a shame he did not originally enter beograd
it would have been a good way to get the crowd in!

If he had played in Belgrade though, presumably he would have gotten to the SF or F and he wouldn't have been able to qualify for Rotterdam... I wouldn't have counted on Rotterdam to give him a WC either. :shrug: I think he made the right choice.

i agree, more money and more points if he gets further in the draw
