The local newspaper annonces that the first WC goes to Grosjean if his shoulder allows him to play. For the two last WC according to the article the candidates are Manarrino, Mahut and Clement.

That's a pretty awesome field for a regular event. True it is missing star power from the top 10 players (Roddick is the only top 10 player entered), but the rest of the field is very solid as well and highly ranked. Almost all are top 50, and those that are below 50 are still capable players. Should be a very interesting tournament, GL to Roddick, Gasquet, and JCF.

Stepanek also asked for a WC.

I think Mannarino will get one, he's mentioned in all the articles about the WC.

Although Ouanna deserves it as well it's quite a strange choice...
I still hope for a late withdrawal that would put Grosjean directly in, and would give Mannarino the WC.

Even if qualies matches have not started yet ?
Ok thanks, i was not sure about that.
Hopefully he will qualify then...

Stepanek stole Mannarino's wildcard :mad:

If Stepanek wanted to play he should have signed up in time, or else play quallies :rolleyes:

Simon played quallies in Casablanca and won the tournament.
