I like this idea and it would certainly reduce pussy retirements for no reason.

In situations like this though it would most likely just have made charly finish his match in houston rather than withdraw here.

Yeah, that was true looking at the Fognini v Llodra match. So yeah, the WC does make sense to me now.

fully expected.

can't blame him really. players will show up for r1 paychecks as long as the ATP allows it. (and it's tough to see what they can really do about it)

Berlocq shouldn't have been here...should have taken time off...deserves to be out for some time.

I think Starace got a WC because of Monte Carlo's close proximity to Italy...Bolelli got a WC one year I seem to remember.

maybe cause he couldn't play qualies? but the same would apply to Andreev so I don't know really.

What was the reason Berlocq retired? Same as in Houston, leg injury?
