Well, I guess at least Ferrer is transparent in his point whoring ways

Hope someone other than him takes the title.

Re: WWW 's-Hertogenbosch (Rosmalen)?

Ferrer entered cuz he's not that good on grass and yeah, he does want the easy points because he knows he probably won't make QF at Wimbledon.
Would you be shocked if Monaco played the week before the USO or Tsonga the week before RG?

Ferrer probably, though it'd be good if someone who wasn't a clay courter wins here.

well here's the thing: there are only 2 weeks in between wimbledon and the french and therefor there is only a small window of time for him or anyone to get comfort on grass. Is it his fault that the entry list turned out the way it did? no could he have gone to halle/queens which had stronger fields? yes but also keep in mind he made the semis of the french and probably wanted a week off after that which is not a crime

grass is easily his worst surface and it only makes sense that he'd try and get some comfort on it before wimbledon

Compared to other top players,he has played lots of times the week before a Slam:Aukland before AO or Nice before the French.

xavier could also do it if he maintgains the form he had this week

i'd rank the favorites like this:

1. malisse
2. muller
3. hasse
4. tursunov

its a shame that tursunov, malisse, hasse and muller are all in the same section and ferrer is at the top all alone. He can make the final, which yould be a shame. I like david but i hope whoever gets out of thet bottom half wins it all
Good post. Those four and alsp Goffin can do serious damage.
