His ranking at the 6 week cutoff point was too low to make the cut. He was about 17th on the ALT list and chose not to enter qualifying

He doesn't make the cut in Rome either - Hamburg he has direct entry to.

Yes, he should receive 'wild card' in Monte Carlo.

He is still having some minor injuries, he needs the break and he might miss Barcelona and then Munich is his next event.

If he was hoping to get a WC in a (half-)French AMS, that was pretty naive.

Probably, 6 weeks back, he thought: if I've a direct entry (or a WC) OK, but otherwise I will have to stop ....

I am only supposing :p but is suggestive that he has only commit for the MD but not for qualy

He didn't enter the AO qualies either and wasn't expecting a WC there, so why would he expect a wildcard into Monte Carlo?

Looking for something that isn't there.

I'm not looking for something, I just don't get his schedule. It doesn't make any sense to me not to enter a Masters Series where he can get so many more points than in a normal event.

(As for the AO, some people said he just didn't enter the qualies in time?)

You don't have to enter qualies 6 weeks before. Ok, qualified for Indian Wells, then qualified and made the final in Miami. Flies to Sweden and has to adjust from a slow hardcourt to a fast ice rink and he had a minor leg problem as well. Well cumulative effects from a lot of tennis in a short space of time. Canas with hampered movement is Karlovic without the serve.

No, he made a decision not to enter the AO qualies cause winning the Sao Paulo CH was equivalent to a 3rd round at the AO and for him to do that he would have to have won 5 matches. At the time he and Etlis took that choice.

He's probably glad of the rest while the results of his now high-enough ranking filter through in time for Hamburg - why break your back playing quallies when he's already ranked high enough and just needs to wait for that ranking to take effect. Sure it means he misses MC and Rome but he's played an awful lot already this year so a bit of a rest wouldn't go amiss, especially if there's a slight nagging injury he wants to shake off.
