Oh Toppu will be there too! You should see if Rawalya can sneak you into the changing rooms to get some really juicy photos for us!

No, he's not sure yet to play in Davis Cup.

He entered Bangkok then.

Re: Calendar for 2009?

Is he playing Davis Cup for sure? when do they decide on who got picked to play the tie?

Considering his schedule of the US hard court, he plays continuously from now til end of US Open, and hopefully that includes 2nd week of USO, and then Davis Cup if he's picked. The week of Sept 21-27 should be a rest week for him really, doesn't make sense to play Bucharest/Metz unless his USO is shorten somehow (touch wood that won't be the case). Besides, the 3 weeks Asian swing is very important since he needs to get a good feel to get himself ready for Shanghai to defend 700 pts. Make more sense if he gets to Asia early to prepare for that.

Exactly. Not to mention that the different surface alone would be enought to explain his choice.

Re: Calendar for 2009?

I think there is discussion about given him a WC when they say "tractations en cours". The article has been written today so after the deadline.

I think Gilles shouln't play Metz and focus on more important event and if he plays in DC he will be a bit tired nervously.

Re: Calendar for 2009?

Oh sorry, I thought it already was the entry list when I saw your post in the tournament sub, soulage. But I just saw the official entry lists in another forum and he really hasn't entered Metz - he hasn't entered Bucharest either.

(So you see Jo also gets his fair share of digs in the French media, Puschkin?

Re: Calendar for 2009?

There is some tractations to make him come in Metz according Republicain Lorrain http://www.republicain-lorrain.fr/fr...ux-Arenes.html

Le contingent français, dans lequel figurent l’homme qui monte, Jérémy Chardy, et le spécialiste de Roland-Garros, Julien Benneteau, sera peut-être enrichi par la venue de Gilles Simon (tractations en cours) alors que Jo Tsonga brillera par son absence. Le Manceau semble trop attirer par les sirènes, richissimes, de l’Asie.
But maybe he has entered Bucharest or will do like Jo.

He hasn't entered Metz, I don't know if he will defend his title in Bucharest or take some time off before the Asian tourney.

Yes I have a special one Can you see if they have any footage of Mandlikova's matches over there; I think she played there a few times when Indiana was a Virginia Slim tournament between 1981 and 1986 roughly. ^_^

Have a nice trip lucky you!
