Fish and Isner coming back to the USA after playing Davis cup in Monte-Carlo : they won't play Monte-Carlo tournament.

^^ Isner never played Monte Carlo.


Marcel :eek: :eek: He usually does so I'm surprised. But seeing the list - if he will be in good form - this tourney can be more succesful than MC so it isn't a bad idea. Good luck!! :hug:

That feels foolish. I'm guessing that Houston is shelling out a fair share of money for them to show up.

Will US team's boys pull out ? Long travel from MC to Houston

Vamos Berlocq here. Should make QFs at least and hopefully can go further with a good draw. Lopez and Monaco will provide good competition for Fish and Isner, if they play. Harrison is the dark horse here.

With Lopez, Anderson and Monaco, this entry list looks much stronger.

Wow, this must be the best 3 WCs ever in the history of a 250.

Fish is injured. Will he pull out ?

Fish is 50/50 to play here. Depends on how he feels later in the week.

There's no way Isner actually plays here, is there? He's going Monte Carlo, to Houston, back to Monte Carlo?

I guess Isner will be playing in Houston after all.

All three WCs going to non-american seeds. Surprising. In a bad way.

Granollers doing the sensible thing...one can only imagine Isner won't be going back to Monte Carlo after he's played here...
