First TMS event...should be interesting!!!

Definitely! Too bad Richard's ranking isn't high enough yet to play those big events.

03-07-2003, 09:06 AM
Good luck to all the frenchmen :D :bounce:...I wish Richard was playing....still sour at his management for not giving him a wild card

*glares at IMG*

03-07-2003, 09:07 AM
yeah that was weird how didn't get one..maybe coz he's already got a monte carlo one?

03-07-2003, 09:10 AM
maybe, I think he prefers to get wildcards in France.

03-07-2003, 09:13 AM
It doesn't matter that he got a Monte Carlo one does it?!!
I just find it odd, cos each year IMG give a wild card to one of its players cos they are a sponsor of the Indian Wells tournament...and they usually give it to the younger and up and coming players....


Atleast I will see him at Monte Carlo :D

I was a bit surprised that Sharapova got a wc again and Richard didn't, but if he wins the challenger this week it will be good for his ranking. Perhaps better then risking to lose in the 1st round of a TMS.

03-07-2003, 09:24 AM
Yeah, your right about that!! The challengers are excellent for him, I really do hope he wins this week!!...Sharapova lost today as well!! Needless to say...I am not sad about that. LOL :angel:

the young player who gets the wildcard at iw this year is still mario ancic.

of course you can get a wildcard for the qualies too, but i suppose richard is not interested...? he's just lost at besancon.

liz - you aren't the 'liz' at richard's yahoo group, are you?

03-07-2003, 11:03 PM

Ohhhhh my poor boy :sad: :sad: :sad:
That's not fair...he was going to win that damn thing too. *sigh*

I did see that Mario got the wild card this year and thats great! :D

And yes, I am the Liz from the Yahoo Group :)
I see you are a newbie around here so...WELCOME :D
