I sure hope now he's going to play Indy! I wouldn't even try to talk to him, I can't compete. You won.
The perfect schedule would be Stuttgart-Indy so we both get to see him (I could go to Stuttgart too, I've never been there, so it would be nice too), but it really doesn't make sense to me.

I know, I thought of you when I saw that Stan was playing the European clay events too... At least Stan could have made an effort and joined Roddick, Karlovic, Querrey and Isner in Indianapolis to practice his return of serve a little bit!

If you need any information, I can try to talk to Stan and ask him whatever you want, I don't mind making a fool of myself with other players, it's even part of the fun when one goes to a tennis tournament.

He entered New Haven between Cincy and the USO. Not sure why he said at the beginning of the year he would focus on Slams and not play anymore the week before a big event. (He didn't play the week before Wimbledon!)

So he plays 5 weeks in a roll (if he manages to go to 2nd wk of USO). Sounds to me like he isn't too confident about the 2 TMS . Maybe if he goes deep in Montreal and Cincy, he will pull out NH? finger crossed (that he goes deep in TMS).

On a different note, I went to ATP to check out New Haven and see that he has a new head shot picture. He looks serious , I like it.

I think that's fair enough, says a lot about him and his confidence but maybe he prefers a busy schedule to scrabbling around for a wild card a few days before a tourney starts.
Five straight weeks of tennis on US time while working full time UK time. Better start buying in the coffee

Have a great time there in Indy, Alli.

I don't even know who's playing there. I went to Indy's website and clicked on the "player" tab, and they only listed the 4 Americans , and I don't like them all. ok, admittedly I didn't take the time to scroll down until now, I'm use to seeing all the players show up immediately on the players page

Don't forget to wave at the TV, maybe we'll see you on there.

Karlovic withdrew, Alli.

I didn't know you will spend the whole week there, including the qualies! It's a bit of a waste, I'll be in Hamburg just 2 days maybe.
I know I said I don't mind making a fool of myself with other players, but not to the point of giving them a hug, sorry. It probably doesn't show much on message boards, but I'm very, very shy in real life.

You can find the entry list of Indianapolis here, Lala:
http://www.menstennisforums.com/showthread.php?t=145541
We wanted to find some challenges for Alli, but the entry list doesn't inspire me much, I can't think of anything... You should really ask in the Gulbis forum, they will surely bombard you with questions and requests there.

Merci, toi aussi!

I really don't have anything to ask right now about Gilles, we get so many updates in the media, about his schedule, his knee... I kept seeing Tulasne everywhere in Madrid, he was even sitting next to me while I was watching PHM-Fognini (since the winner would be the next opponent of Gilles), but I couldn't think of anything interesting to ask. People sometimes ask on the French blog if Gilles is going to have a website one day, that's the only thing which comes to my mind right now...

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!

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.

There is some tractations to make him come in Metz according Republicain Lorrain http://www.republicain-lorrain.fr/fr...ux-Arenes.html
Quote:
Le contingent français, dans lequel figurent l’homme qui monte, Jérémy Chardy, et le spécialiste de Roland-Garros, Julien Benneteau, sera peut-ętre 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 sirčnes, richissimes, de l’Asie.
But maybe he has entered Bucharest or will do like Jo.

Default 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?
It's quite stupid here since he's the only Frenchie who doesn't need to play more 250 events. And the entry list is OK without him, it's fine if he prefers to focus on the Asian tour.)

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.
