esther tryphon- what?? yeah i saw on seb's site too that he said he would be playing his next tournaments with escude so i wonder what happened with that...

seb and el aynaoui ( i can never spell his name right :P )???

has santoro and escude ever played together before??

yeah i would think bercy qualifying rounds woudl be a bit like the outside courts for the aus the outside courts are REALLY quite small and intimate and its really good coz you're quite close to the players :P

Lindsayfan Boutter/Llodra
Grosjean/El Aynaoui

there is the hand of Guy Forget in these weird pairs...
10-13-2002 01:28 PM
I was wrong

It's Santoro/Escudé and Boutter/Llodra.
as well as Grosjean/El Aynaoui, Clément is nowhere to be seen... Maybe he did not enter doubles because he was not sure of playing, he wasn't a direct entry in singles originally, he only gets in because some players withdrew.

Seb and Nico perhaps will play together in one of the next tournaments.

Tryphon Madrid draw has 48 players so it's high level, difficult to get in.
Of course some players are not playing due to injuries but you also have to take into consideration that some spots in the draw are reserved for qualifiers.

However Fabrice is currently ranked 49 and Nico 41 so they should have a chance of being direct entries but I'm afraid the problem is that the entry list is always published weeks in advance so probably they were ranked lower at that time.

In the nineties I was living in Paris and I was always going to the Paris-Bercy qualifications. They were players ranked between 50 and 100 so great, and it was played in a "normal" tennis club so it was very intimate, quite strange to be so close of the players, seeing them everywhere. (now they do it at Bercy though not on the main court)

I think the French boys are just trying to play doubles in every tournament till the Davis Cup, whoever their partner is.
Sebastien has no real intention to play Davis Cup doubles but he is OK to play doubles with Pioline or anybody else just to help them.

Lindsayfan cos santoro's ranking isnt so good anymore...
10-13-2002 01:10 AM
esther why did santoro have to QUALIFY???????
lmao i CANNOT believe that they are playign doubles together
10-12-2002 10:50 PM
Lindsayfan escude/grosjean in double? esther,what happens?
10-12-2002 08:48 PM

Escudé is out in the first round of qualies but I think (I'm not sure) that he's gonna play doubles with Seb.

Santoro and Boutter have won their first round of qualies.

(Grosjean and Clément are direct entries.)
