APR22th Brazil.
In consecuence that makes sense to remain several weeks in Latin America and then probably travel somewhere else.
Well, I have to thank you and admit these are good reasons I was not aware of for an entry list that disappointed me mostly because of low cut, and I had always seen in action, over and over, all the guys supposed to enter (even Nedovyesov in singles and doubles since Cherbourg !) , so am always looking for some newcomers when I travel to a tournament . The change from indoor clay to greenset in 2013 may explain other choices, like Vagnozzi or A.Balazs who enter Rome future on same week. I will go to StBrieuc yet : the staff is really kind and some restaurants are worth the trip for customers of my generation ;-)
OK ! OK ! Players too ... And De Schepper, Berrer and some others are nice guys.
Kind regards from France . Eric.
