Chardy should get the wild-card, he hasn't won a match in the qualifying events, but he is the local player.

Tsonga won't play.

Tsonga won't play.

too bad, atleast Monfils is still there. Guez will come in for Tsonga.

Chardy gets the WC as expected.

PHM is not sure to play (groin pain). As for Gasquet, it will probably depend on the decision of the TAS which is expected next week. And I wonder how Monfils plans on playing there since he's resuming the condition training only now and hasn't picked up a racquet yet.

I wonder if Richard will play if he doesn't get the decision in time.

It starts on the 17th and I read he'll get the result on the 18th.

If gael changes his mind and Richard doesn't come the tournament directors will be mad lol it's good for guez to enter and touch the prize money. When is the draw ?

Truc
12-14-2009, 07:54 AM
Monfils certainly won't play, he's injured again and stopped his preparation.

OUT 2 TSONGA J.W. 475 (wrist) It's strange they say it's the wrist now because the media only said at first that he prefers to focus on his condition training.

And PHM it still in doubt because of his hip, he might be replaced by Recouderc.
(Paul-Henri Mathieu, tęte de série du groupe bleu, souffre de la hanche, et par précaution, le Toulousain Laurent Recouderc, a été appelé pour pallier un éventuel forfait de « PHM ».)

why is phm playing if he is injured?

llodra also has injury problems i hear.

Truc
12-17-2009, 12:45 PM
Again? What kind of problems? He looked fine last week at the Interclubs.
But I don't get why he's been playing so much during the off-season, especially since he's very injury prone.

That was weird when I was going to drive with my dad to shop it was 5/5 and no BP's even chances for it.

I'm back after 15-20 mins and I see game is over :eek: I tought Gicquel withdraw it but I checked french site and it ended 7/5 6/1 really, really a very fast second set how long it was?

Yeap, what a splendid bid this Ascione +3.5 hcp was! And this bumpkin happened to throw a white duster disgracefully just due to wasted bps being a slightly better contender on the court....what a miserable chump! Just the only relatively solid pre-season tourney and such a pitfall......whatever......

Now its all up to you Arnie, old chap!

I was very disappointed that Italian Super Tennis was showing only first 3 matches. But it seems that the last match isn't televised, is it :confused:

They're now showing the 1st match Gicquel vs Ascione again :sad:

But Chardy is playing at 19:00 O'clock tomorrow, isn't he :)

Nothing serious apparently, just a painful back according to somebody who is in Toulouse.

Ouch, Chardy, hope it's not serious. It is something though, else he wouldn't have retired. Hope he pulls out now and take some rest.

Chardy's performance in Paris-Bercy against Monaco was awful.

After the 1st set, result was strange for me, i thought Clement would be on-fire.
In 2nd set, things turned into normal. Damned, what a lot physical problems for Chardy this year!

Truc
12-18-2009, 01:08 PM
Chardy pulled out, Ascione will play Recouderc. I don't know if they're going to change the OOP, it was supposed to be the 19.00 match.
