Just a warning. Gasquet is injured and may pull out depending on how fast he recovers.

That's exactly what I was thinking (I speculated when the U.S. Open entry list came out that he would withdraw from either Montreal, Cincinnati, or New Haven).stuey87 said:El Aynaoui's out? This must be where he's pulling out so as not to go one over on his Protected Ranking event entries.
Yeah, it makes sense to withdraw from New Haven rather than either of the masters series events with more points on offer there. Plus he gets the week's rest ahead of the Open.smucav said:That's exactly what I was thinking (I speculated when the U.S. Open entry list came out that he would withdraw from either Montreal, Cincinnati, or New Haven).
His official website claims he picked up a stomach problem midway through his loss to Chela, so I doubt he'll be entering the Pilot Pen but rather resting and not risking that getting badly injured just before the US Open:AndyMurray said:Any news on Henman's wildcard?
According to the Press here in England, Tim did want to accept the Wild Card, but on his website http://www.timhenman.org/ it says he damaged a stomach muscle during his match with Chela in Cinci, so I guess he has been advised to rest for a week to get 100% for the US Open. It's a shame - as you say, he hasn't played so much this Summer and he does need the match practiceDebstah said:According to Tennis Week, Safin is playing so I put him in as a WC since that'd be the only way he could get in at this point.
How could Henman have pulled if he was never even in the tourney to begin with? he must've just turned down the wildcard. I wonder if that was a bright move on his part, he's barely played this summer.
