ah Kühnen is not there : you said Mayer had a problem with him if I remember well ? ;)

About the topic does Stepanek have real chance to play ?

Is Spain eligible for this? Would be nice for some of the players not normally picked for Davis Cup (ie Almagro, Montanes) to play on the team competition. They could get Granollers and Marc Lopez for doubles!

The DTB website says that the field is now complete and the teams will be Argentine, Australia, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Serbia, Spain and USA, but I can't find the teams on the tournament website.

Is it like a normal entry list? Or is it still possible for those players to change their mind and enter another event? I'm not sure how it works now with the event giving ATP points.

I'm wondering about Mahut in particular, it means he won't play the RG qualies?

I'm sure if Mahut plays here they will give him a WC in Paris :yeah:

Go Aussies!

There's no rule preventing players from playing the main draw of one event (Dusseldorf) & the qualifying for the next week's event (Roland Garros), but considering the distance between the two tournaments it's unlikely a player would commute back & forth during the week. Maybe Mahut is expecting a main draw wild card for Roland Garros? Or he will play Sunday/Monday in Dusseldorf & then go to Roland Garros qualifying?

Thanks, you're right, the RG qualies count as qualifying for the next week's event, so it's just a practical problem. I was getting confused because I was thinking of it as two parallel events.

He lost in the final round of qualifying in Nice on Sunday & was headed to Paris to play Roland Garros qualifying starting Tuesday, but got into the main draw of Roland Garros right before the list closed on Monday. Instead of staying in Nice to sign in for a lucky loser spot (one spot opened up on Tuesday & either Anderson or Ginepri would have been ahead of Recouderc for it if they had signed in), he went to Dusseldorf to join the U.S. team & played singles on Tuesday. If he were to win a match there, he would earn points in two different events in the same week which normally isn't allowed.
