Third seed Haas pulls out of Lyon event

LYON, France, Oct 22 (Reuters) - Tommy Haas's hopes of qualifying for the season-ending Masters Cup suffered a blow when the third-seeded German pulled out of this week's Lyon Grand Prix on Monday.

"He has been suffering from gastro-enteritis since the Moscow event (earlier this month)," tournament official Stephane Cretois told Reuters.

Haas is eighth in the ATP Champions Race which means he fills the last qualification spot for the Masters Cup in Shanghai

If Gasquet goes to Shanghai (it's not sure), I hope it will be thanks to his results and not because of the bad results or the illnesses of his opponents. To say "good for Gasquet" is not very fair-play !

Good for Gasquet!!
..although he has some points to defend having won last year ;/

That doesn't make sense. In Tennis you measure yourself against your opponents' results. To qualify you need to be better than anyone who didn't qualify, it is a relative criterion, not absolute, there is no preset amount of points to qualify.

So if everybody else chokes or is injured or sucks on carpet and Gasquet has a good showing, his qualification will be well deserved. Of course, this remains to be seen and there are many other contenders fighting for just two spots.

Haas hates the TMC and will do anything to avoid playing it.

I want to see Gasquet make it, although based on points from GSs Haas deserves it more.

Haas struggling to make TMC, he would have needed to make the semis anyway and will at least be fresher for next week you would hope, and he loves the Paris Indoor event.
