Default Clay Season Thread 2009

This is his official calendar, coming from his official website :

Avril :

> Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters (Monaco) – Du 11 au 19 Avril (1000 ? )
> Open Sabadell Atlántico 2008 (Barcelone) – Du 20 au 27 avril (500)

Mai :

> Internazionali BNL d'Italia (Rome) – Du 28 Avril au 4 Mai (1000)
> Mutua Madrileńa Madrid Open (Madrid) – Du 10 au 17 Mai (1000)
> ARAG ATP World Team Championship (Dusseldorf) – 17 Mai (250 ? )

> Roland Garros (Paris) – 24 Mai au 7 Juin (GS)

The problem is that he isn't on the entry list in Monte Carlo, so maybe a WC or an error .

He seems to be playing all the 1000, one 500 and the arag machinchose for whatever the weird reasons he is there .

It would be his first full clay season on the pro tour, so good luck, Jo

okay I'm begging you Jo, DON'T get injured during this clay season (let's start slowly, then we can ask for a whole year.)

OK, we have some explanations about the Monte Carlo problem in l'équipe today. It's confirmed that he isn't playing there this year, except for one case : if he loses early in Miami, he will ask a WC at Monte Carlo. The reason is that he badly needs some rest after playing so much in the beginning of the season.

Oh thanks Benoit, Monte carlo looks like such a glamourous tournament (it's Gasquet's favourite) so it's a shame that Jo won't be there to soak up some of that atmosphere. I miss Jo already.

I wasn't sure what the Dusseldorf tournament was, so I looked it up a bit. It is on clay, which is good. The tournament's official site has pretty much no english content. Here's what I gathered from the pictures:

Gilles has also committed to play this tourney along with Jo. Guy Forget will be their team captain. I'm guessing since this is also a team format, they are trying to get pseudo davis cup experience. I also think they need a 3rd team member given Gilles' non-existent doubles skills.

The tourney does not award any ranking points as far as I know. (I checked Soderling and Lindstedt's ranking breakdowns and both guys have 0 atp ranking points for World Team Championship and Sweden won it last year)

France won it in 1986. The team was: Guy Forget, Henri Leconte, Thierry Tulasne and Eric Deblicker.

So, spring hard season is over and it's time to move to new place

Jo will not play Monte-Carlo? Monaco is so close to France, it is almost your home Jo! (and we all know how good Jo is when he is playing for home public)
But if Jo needs rest... He knows better what is good for him.

well you know better not risk an injury or something cause his body needs rest
Monte carlo is in france but clay season is hard and long.
So lets go slowly.
He needs to adapt on playing on clay.
Good luck to him. He'll have some other occasions to play in front of homecrowd.Hopefully roland garros.

Hey guys just got pointed in this direction (thanks Danakz) seeing as he got to the quarters in Miami I think its safe to assume he won't be asking for the Monte Carlo WC then? Still, it'll be good to see him play a full season on clay and I'm REALLY looking forward to seeing himself and Gilles (alongside Gael hopefully? That's just wishful thinking on my part though!) in the world team cup

It turns out, The World Team Championships will award points for the first time this year. (Special thanks to Truc for the info)

Hopefully he can get through the claycourt season without any major injuries and can have some good performances. Would be great to see him do well at RG.
