Re: Marseille Entry List/Fact Sheet (updated February 13, 2009)
Some news and rumors on the blog of the official website http://blog.open13.fr/ The SE should have been cleared in the night cos it writes Clement no more needs the WC so it remains two WC. A rumor deals with one for Dimitrov, to be confirmed.
Pour faire court, Notre ami Murray a abandonné pour “personnal reason” ainsi qu’Ancic….
Nous trouvons cela bien dommage pour un tenant du titre !!!
Effets en cascade :
- Arnaud Clément ne bénéficie plus de la Wildcard, mais passe en direct sur le tableau final !! Il en serait peut être de même pour Jérémy Chardy….
Il reste donc deux Wildcard à offrir !!
Les bruits de couloirs parle d’un jeune bulgare……. à suivre.
- Le tirage au sort devant avoir lieu à 12H a été reporté à 18h00…..
Quoiqu’il en soit, nous restons trés déçu par l’abandon sans raison particulière de Murray….
PS : Chaque année, les joueurs droits à deux abandon pour “personal reason”. Murray vient de craquer la première.

Re: Marseille Entry List/Fact Sheet (updated February 14, 2009)
I listened to the audio interview of Caujolle (the tournament director) on the tournament website and he explains why he picked Dimitrov rather than Davydenko "who was another option".
He doesn't need to explain why Dimitrov, we got it, I was waiting for his reason not to give a 3rd WC! It doesn't make sense to me.
He could also have given it to Mahut who will be there to play doubles. Nico probably didn't want to take a WC away, just coming back from a long injury break, and he didn't want to go through the qualies, but if nobody was going to get that WC anyway...
Why would they give a WC to Davidenko if he wanted to enter this tournament, with his ranking he would have been seeded #2. The WC are meant to be given to young and promising players such as Dimitrov, that have the qualities but dont have the ranking to get into big tournaments.
