I also think that the WC given to some Canadian players in Montreal are unfair to the other players.

You cannot compare the WC given in slams because in slams, you have many more players directly entered (and both France and the USA have several players near to this direct entrance).

Here it's 56 players masters 1000, and it's much more difficult to enter ... and they give the WC to players ranked lower to 200, even 300

And of course beating them in the first round gives many ATP points

I think the Portugal's attitude for Estoril is remarkable

There is no other ATP event in Canada, so this is the only chance for the Canadian players to get a WC.

Canadian fans would rather watch Canadian players than some random players you can think of giving WCs to
People know more about Niemeyer and Dancevic here than they do, say, Ferrero, probably

Maybe you're right and it's unfair to other players. Who cares? It's not Tennis Canada's job to be fair to all players, it's their job to support Canadian tennis by giving our players experience and chances to succeed. Plus, the crowds and media interest for the third WC, especially if it's Niemeyer, will probably be bigger than for any other player not in the tournament now, and that's the point of WCs.

Personally, I think Portugal's attitude is quite silly, but to each his own, I suppose

To get more the thread more back on track, I'd be quite surprised if the WC didn't go to Fred, at this point, after he's put on a solid show in Granby.

Since it's probably Fred's last Rogers Cup, I think he'll get it.

I doubt that a MS1000 tournament is made to give such experience.

If it was a smaller ATP tournament I would understand but a MS1000 (except if it has 100 players like Indian Wells and Miami) is just too big for that

That's what I think.

Besides, if Canadian people prefer Niemeyer than Ferrero, well

Mirka hasn't decided yet whether Federer will play in Montreal, according to the tournament director (source in French): http://www.radio-canada.ca/sports/te...mercredi.shtml

I guess it's still the same knee injury which forced him to retire in the final of Scheveningen a few weeks ago.
