Hewitt, Safin, Roddick to be fined for skipping 2005 Masters Cup

SHANGHAI, East China, Nov. 9 (Xinhuanet)- World tennis stars Lleyton Hewitt, Marat Safin and Andy Roddick will be fined for their withdrawal from the upcoming 2005 Masters Cup which starts in Shanghai on Sunday.

ATP Vice President Brad Drewett said here on Wednesday that injury is common for players in competitive sports such as tennis,and that their withdrawal should be understood.

But the three players will be fined, Drewett added.

Shanghai, which hosted the 2004 Masters Cup, firstly saw Australian Open champion Safin's withdrawal from this year's final tournament with a knee injury.

Then, 2002 Masters Cup titlist Hewitt decided to skip the tournament because his wife will give birth to a child.

In this morning, World No. 3 Roddick confirmed that he would not come to Shanghai due to an injury on his back. Enditem

hmmmm it's unfair! however in Roddick's and especially Hewitt should be fined. Organisers are losing some money becauqse of their withdrawals. They made a very good effort to do the new stadium so they should be understood...

What do they want from Safin? To play this meaningless exhibition for top players and retire from the game before the age of 26??

That's unfair toward Marat. What do they want him to do?

As for Hewitt, that's fair. I'm up in the air about Roddick.

No idea The source says it was was said by ATP Vice President... Seems pretty unfair in Marat´s case.. In Hewitt and Andy`s case I won´t say anything because I don´t know all the details...

Default Re: Hewitt, Safin, Roddick to be fined for skipping MC??

Far be it for me to defend Hewitt, but what exactly does the ATP expect him to do? Not be there for his wife and the birth of his first child? Seems a tad ridiculous to fine him a fairly large sum (it's like 5% of your year's sum for missing TMC, isn't it?) over doing what is, by most moral standards, the right thing.

If Marat and Andy can provide valid evidence that their injuries prevented them from playing and/or playing without further injuring themselves they shouldn't be fined either.

the fine will be a pittance compared to the expense of those hotel rooms and flights, lol. I thought that IF youy appeared and didn't play, a la Safin, then you would not be fined? Is this untrue?

Extremely unfair IMO... they should only fine people for skipping required events uninjured, or with no family commitments (Hewitt has so no fine).

If I recall Spewitts family incident was a little premature
Zero sympathy from moi – maybe a little for Safin but that’s about it.

Although it's harsh on these three, I think the Slams should adopt this tough policy on uninjured players withdrawing, we would see Scud accepting an RG wildcard, Gaudio turning up at Wimbledon, and Jerome Haehnel flying.

I read another article in Chinese and it seems whether they will be fined is not final. Drewett sounds very sympathic and understanding for all 3 players who withdrew.
