And when he loses early again at RG, he can only blame himself.Same with Agassi. He never plays here and has already said he will skip the entire clay season so I'm not sure what his name is doing in the draw.b/c for a masters tourney, all the players who are eligible to enter based on their rank are entered automatically. Andre will have to notify the tourney (and Rome, and Hamburg, and RG) after the fact. So Marat is basically a certainty to get in off the ALT list and he probably knew that beforehand. Smart. :)

There's a difference between entry list and draw. :)

Anyway, Monte Carlo have had a high cut lately. Some players will probably withdraw until the week of the tournament. Last year, 66th ranked player was the last entry. 59th in 2004 and 69th in 2003.

Yes - of course I meant entry list - but you knew what I meant anyway! And I fully expect loads of withdrawals too. Funny though - I have been to MC every year for years now - but I never realised the cut off point had been as low as 69 until you just pointed it out ..... :eek:

I don't think Paradorn will get a Wild Card here because he is not a good clay court player, and there are many of those who could expect to progress further in the tournament than he could. Also - so many French players would benefit from a Wild Card in their local tournament. Just my opinion anyway.

I wouldn't rule out Andy. If he loses before the final in Houston, he'll have plenty of time to head over to Monte-Carlo. On his current form, I think it's likely that he won't make the final of Houston.

On his current form, I think it's likely that he won't make the final of Houston.I would. Yesterday in James's press conference at the end of Davis Cup, he listed his clay schedule and did not mention Monte Carlo.

I suppose that anything is possible, but I'd be shocked if Andy showed up in Monte Carlo. Very interesting that Houston's trying a Saturday final, though. That might help a few more players show up but at the end of the day if the American guys don't want to play, they won't. :shrug:

Dent was injured.

As for Ginepri, what a silly boy. Skipping required events when not injured is cowardly and stupid, and if he gets his fine it'll be thoroughly deserved.

Still, a strong line up there, with Safin in his place, and I expect this tournament to be an exciting one.

Gasquet injury doubt for Monaco


French number one Richard Gasquet is a doubt for next week's Monte Carlo Masters after pulling a stomach muscle.

The world number 16, who reached the semi-finals in last year's tournament, picked up the injury during last weekend's Davis Cup tie against Russia.

Gasquet lost both his singles ties in five sets as France were defeated 4-1 at home to Russia in Pau.

He will undergo a scan to determine if he will be fit to play in the Monaco event which starts on Monday, 17 April.

Pixie
04-12-2006, 12:30 PM

Fans in Monte Carlo know their tennis. It's a prestigious clay event and when players like Nadal, Federer, Safin, Coria, Gaudio or Nalbandian or all of them missed this event, then it would be a bigger problem for the tournament.

The Americans apart from Spadea haven't played there for years and as for Hewitt, he has in the past, but there are enough "local" stars there anyway.

I think it has been changed. I've never heard of this happening officially - but a few people pulled out of a couple of the South American tournaments while still involved in the previous ones earlier this year, and there were no repurcussions - so it must have been changed fairly recently :confused:

I always thought it was a stupid rule anyway, seemed stupid for a player to be put into the draw when he had no intention of playing merely b/c he was playing the week before and went deep. I mean it'd be better if no one ever had to/decided to pull out of tourneys, especially Masters, but accepting they'll do it anyway and changing the rules to make it better for the tournaments and stuff, for the guys on the alt list who can find out earlier that they're into the draw, etc. So it's good that it seems to be changed.

Except that I thought someone looked in the 2006 rulebook and it was still there? Oh well. If so it's obviously no longer being enforced.
I agree with you - it was a stupid rule and it's better for all concerned that it is not enforced.

It is still there, but apparently not enforced... v. common for the ATP - many rules are enforced sporadically or not at all.

"VI. THE COMPETITION 6.06 WITHDRAWAL/LATE WITHDRAWAL
E. No Play After Withdrawal ...

3. No player may continue playing in an ATP or Challenger Series Tournament in singles or doubles after giving notice of withdrawal from a tournament scheduled in a future week on account of injury, illness, or other medical reason."

http://www.atptennis.com/en/common/TrackIt.asp?file=/en/players/ATP_Rulebook.pdfthanks for looking up the rule... it's just interesting/odd that they're starting to not enforce it this year. They definitely did last year.

I hope Ivo can win a match or two here, he can move pretty well on clay and took Roger all the way on it in Gstaad a few years ago.

I noticed that match. That was ubelievable. Roger must have been half asleep.

I saw Ivo play Ferrero in the 1st round last year. Did Ivo win any clay matches last year?

I wish they DID enforce it. Andy might regret his decision to pull out, if he loses to Haas.

Andy might regret his decision to pull out, if he loses to Haas.Nah, the rule is silly, it's better for the tournament b/c they aren't waiting last minute, it's better because these guys aren't put into the draw only to withdraw, it's better for the guys on the ALT list b/c they can know on Wednesday instead of Friday or even later that they're in the main draw. It's better for everyone. Andy was probably never planning to play no matter what happened in Houston.

The rule cited refers to injury/medical reasons. It was probably written for those occasions when a player pulls out of a future tournament citing injury to avoid a possible fine, yet continues to play in the current tournament.

If the player is not injured, and willing to pay any fines for not playing the future tournament, they are free to play on.

Maybe they're narrowing the scope of the rule's application this year or something but in the past it's definitely been applied to all withdrawals no matter what the reason.

Deb, I have some question if some player not come to play (he doesn't know that he has right to play in main draw because many player withdraws) after main draw come out then he will be fine by ATP or not? Does ATP will contact all players who will replace the players that withdraw that they have right to play in main draw instead of withdraw persons?

If I understand what you're asking, I don't think a player who gets in off the ALT list would face a fine if he then didn't play. But I'm not 100% sure.

As I asked you like this because I just read Thailand newspaper this morning and it seemed that Paradorn Srichaphan not yet know that he is in maindraw already because he said that he will leave Thailand to Barcelona on 18 April. I am not sure if ATP informed him yet.

I am sure he knows :) He has been on the circuit a long time and will know how it works. Besides - that's what the coaches and Managers are paid to do - plan in advance/keep in touch with the ATP via email and phone/arrange travel etc. So I'm sure he will be there on time.
