Re: Gasquet pulls out of Olympic Games, Paire to replace him

For entry, there were 56 Direct Acceptances, based on world rankings as of 6 June 2016 (up to a max of 4 players per Nation). Ranked at #24 on 6th June, Paire would qualify for that once Gasquet...

Re: Gasquet pulls out of Olympic Games, Paire to replace him

I think it's because today was the official entry closing date and Gasquet withdrew in time to allow a French replacement who met the criteria. Paire was the next highest ranked French guy (after...

Re: Rio Entry List

Usually reliable French journalist reporting that Gasquet will not be fit for Rio. :sad: Pouille would seem to be the most likely replacement in singles, not sure where this leaves Tsonga in doubles.

Re: Berdych is withdrawing from OG

This isn't their choice though - they didn't make the cut. Only a maximum of the top 4 singles guys in each country who meet the criteria can go + doubles guys who meet the criteria (or win an...

Re: Davis Cup 2016, QF v Czech Rep

France are leading 2-1 after the doubles. It must be a

Re: Wimbledon R4: [12] Tsonga d. [7] Gasquet 4-2 ret.

Very bad luck for Richard. :sad: He was the better player before the injury, with 2 love service holds and forcing a BP on Jo's serve. But he couldn't hit or move at all once he was injured and he...

Re: Ben's Clay Court Season 2016 - Monte Carlo

Re: Ben's Clay Court Season 2016 - Monte Carlo

Sorry, I have been super-busy and have missed Ben's matches recently. Belated happy birthday! Pity about the Murray match, but 2 SF's back-to-back, I think that is the 1st time he's ever done that....
