Nikolay Davydenko has pulled out of St. Petersburg with a wrist injury and says he is unlikely to play Paris. "Even if the inflammation and pain pass, I will have no time for preparation," he said.

Chardy, Ouanna and Mannarino get a WC.

Clearly, the choice of the youth but a little bit tough for Santoro imo. But I'm happy for these guys who now must show they deserved it.

Truc
10-24-2008, 10:58 AM
Yes, I'm surprised Santoro didn't get one.
Benneteau said yesterday in Lyon after his match he deserves one too in his opinion, so he will be disappointed.
I was expecting one for either Ouanna or Mannarino, but not both of them.

Santoro probably will play his final match in career next year in Paris.

I'm happy for Jérémy, Josselin and Adrian, but Fabrice deserved a WC :sad:

will Fabrice play qualies here?

Truc

It regularly happens Santoro doesn't get WC in France and MTF is outraged, in Monte-Carlo already (I know MC isn't in France, but French players often get WC there too), in Marseille...
It's tough since it probably was going to be his last Bercy, but it's not a scoop he isn't in good terms with everybody in French tennis.

I'd be surprised to see him play the qualies, it's not his style when he's refused a WC like that. The article about the Frenchies in qualifying on the website only mentions Clément, Benneteau, Devilder, Serra and Mahut so far.

I just heard that Fernando Gonzalez will not play Paris-Bercy. Could any chilean confirm this?

Don't you think he will get WC next year?

I'm surprised Benneteau and Mahut didn't get WCs but good to see Ouanna get one.

Assuming Gonzalez and Davydenko are out, JCF needs another four withdrawals before the end of the day. Looks like his year is over although technically he's ranked low enough to play Challengers in November. :( :o

12.52 pm: Richard Gasquet has pulled out of the tournament. “I woke up this morning with my elbow in pain… I don’t think my season has been a complete write-off but I’m obviously disappointed,” said Ritchie, who will lose a raft of ranking points after making the semis here last year. From Masters Cup to outside the top 20 in 12 months – poor Ritchie.

Don't you think he will get WC next year?I just listened to the video interview of Caujolle on lequipe.fr (there has been a huge fuss around the WC given to the youngsters, with an open letter of Santoro in L'Equipe, etc., it's a real drama ^^) and Caujolle points out Santoro could have entered the qualifying too if he wanted that much to play Bercy.
I guess they found that a bit irritating too, like he was forcing them to give him a WC - or he was not even considering he might not get it.

Benneteau's case was different since he couldn't play the qualies.

Truc do you why LLodra is out in singles but still plans to play doubles?

Truc
10-28-2008, 07:52 PM
He pulled out because of his knee, he just doesn't need to run a lot in doubles, I guess.
