Why the 56 draw? silly.

Good to see Hewitt is here, this is going to be tough for him but he needs to play some good clay courts events this year, no points to defend.

Joke with a 56 draw. Just like Mr.Disney is a joke.

We might as well get rid of Roddick, Blake, Fish and I doubt Ancic and Wawrinka will be there either.

Jimnik
03-18-2007, 04:01 PM
And it'll be the same for Rome and Hamburg. :(

Looks like Fed-Nadal will probably play all of the major clay tournies this year.

1 to Lisnard (confirmed)

Monfils and Clement should get in directly. So my guess for the other three would be:

Mathieu
Santoro
Llodra

I doubt Cañas will get one here...

Willy isn't playing qualies.

Good to see Ginepri doing the right thing, just add Roddick, Blake, Fish and the only American will be Spadea in qualies or the umpires.

does willy get straight IN now?

he needs ten more withdrawals to get in.(New ranking will not apply for alternatives because the entry list was released a long time ago and that rakings stays the same for this tourney. Only seeding will change based on the current rankings.)

Is clay in Monte Carlo faster then other clay court events?

KrisJB

It is faster than Hamburg but slower than Rome. It is comparable to Roland Garros.

OUT: Malisse :sad:
IN: Vliegen :)

According to Xavier Malisse's brother there is no chance the X-man will play Monte-Carlo. He still has problems with his wrist, an injury he which made him withdraw in Memphis earlier this year. Probably the first tournament Xavier will play again will be Hamburg, so his chances of playing Munich are also very low.

Dammit, with 2 tournament wins this year he could have reached top 20 IMO. Now it won't be that easy anymore :(

Why don't Americans play MC - i've looked at last years draw and not one American - what am I missing?

Thanks

Chip_s_m
04-14-2007, 12:22 AM
Americans don't play in MC because they have to come back in two weeks for Rome, when they typically stay in Europe through Wimbledon--9 weeks. If they played in Monte Carlo on a surface that they're not likely to do well on, they would probably have to stay for an additional 3 weeks. For most of them, staying away from home just isn't worth a few points from (maybe) winning a round or two. However, I think Roddick may have been planning on playing it this year until he got injured (I may not be right about that).

Oh thanks, I always get confused with Monaco and Monte Carlo :scratch:Monaco is the name of the principality, Monte-Carlo is just a quartier of it. But it's the most famouse area, that's why people often say Monte-Carlo when they actually mean Monaco.

And you were right, they use to give one WC to a guy from Monaco and the rest to Frenchies. Like last year, the WC went to Simon, Llodra, Benneteau + Lisnard. One year before PHM and Monfils...
I guess either Santoro entered the MD directly because of a late withdrawal or he didn't want to play for some reason. It seems very unusual to me to give the WC to Tojo over Santoro otherwise (or to give it to Serra and not to Santoro).
