Tsonga is still in the draw.

Marc Lopez replaces Kiefer, Josselin Ouanna replaces Fognini, and Grosjean and Haas were never in the draw to start.

Lopez and Ouanna, what an abysmal rule the made for LL, hope they scrape it for Wimbledon and US Open

Horna and Giraldo would do much more than Marc Lopez and Ouanna. What a pathetic joke.

Tennis-Open-Injured Tsonga pulls out of Roland Garros

Sat May 24, 2008 4:01pm BST Email | Print | Share| Single Page| Recommend (0) [-] Text [+] PARIS, May 24 (Reuters) - France's Jo-Wilfried Tsonga has pulled out of the French Open with a knee injury, French technical director Patrice Dominguez said on Saturday.

The Australian Open finalist, who was seeded 14th, will undergo surgery on a broken meniscus on Tuesday morning.

"(Tsonga's coach) Eric Winogradsky called me an hour ago to tell me that not only Jo was pulling out of the French Open but also that he would not avoid surgery," Dominguez told French radio RMC.

Tsonga, who picked up the injury in March, took a month off to recover, but had to retire from the Casablanca Open on Friday after the injury reappeared. (Reporting by Julien Pretot, editing by Miles Evans)

What's this new LL rule ?

Yes, I can't believe Kiwi is pulling out of a Grand Slam after having been out of the tour for so long?! His interview is surreal, "I'm not feeling well, I have no confidence, so it doesn't make any sense if I'm not 100%"... What a joke.

While Tsonga's withdrawal really is a heartbreak.

What's this new LL rule ?

Used to be drawn from the top 4 ranked players in qualies.

Now, all the 16 last round losers in qualies are places and they are drawn out in respective places.

Hence this is why Horna, Korolev, de Voest and Ramirez Hidalgo didn't get the LL spots.

Instead so far it's Andujar, Decoud, Ouanna, Marc Lopez and now Horna.

Don't joke around, mate. I don't like any of those players.

i agree.
I saw marc lopez once. he was pretty awful. I don't much about Ouanna though.
Horna is decent clay court player. he defeated federer in RG 2003.
