Reasonable entry list for the last tournament before the FO.

Where's Ferrer?

Good list for the wek before a GS. Smart choice for Ferrer to not play here. Isner :facepalm: i fear he is playing to many tournments.

Haha what a likeable list (I mean lot of my favs are playing here), shame that it's one week before RG. Especially Almagro should learn from the last year.

It would be nice to Bellucci play here. Is not like he'll go far deep into RG and he desperately will need the points and the ATP playing before he drops to 80 or something.

Almagro :banghead:

Apparently he would prefer to win Nice and lose 1st round of Roland Garros than made the quarters of the latter.

I never said Dolgo won Nice....I talked about his final but in fact it was a semi so he won't defend his semi ?

Second WC goes to Paire and third could be Monfils if he asks for one

I'm quite surprised by this list, there are some decent clay/players here, should be more of a challenger field.

Gasquet now likely not to receive a BYE into R2. :sad:

Gasquet shouldn't play this, remember what happened at 2010 won the final and got exhausted with the French Open organizers screwing him up and making her play i think a day after winning here. I hope the French Open dont self destruct their own players.

Gasquet's doubtful.

He said after his loss to Ferrer, he doesn't want to take any risks before Roland Garros and would like to rest his ankle.

Ankle, he's just come off a shoulder issue?
