What a ridiculous decision :smash:

Montcourt had quite a poor 2007, especially the second half, and only performs (somewhat) on clay.

There were many better candidates out there, most notably Jérémy Chardy.

Great move, FFT :retard:

Show me proof :aplot:
You didn't see his match against Hewitt in RG two years ago? His blue DIM underwear was showing during the whole match.

As for the "many better candidates", it is simply not true, Chardy and Montcourt were the main candidates imo. I agree Chardy would have been a good choice, but Montcourt has a better ranking, so it's not that shocking. The only French guys who are better ranked than Montcourt were Patience and Devilder, both clearly older (27).
Young players like Sidorenko and Eysseric are still playing mostly Futures and ranked out of the top 300. Plus I already mentioned the other reasons imo in the thread about the FFT wildcard.

Hater :ras:

Don't be bitter, it just confirms what we all know that Montcourt > Chardy ;)

He's not that bad on hard. He won Durban, and reached the SF in Cherbourg and Besancon. He had a lot of injury problems towards the end of 2007, hence the results.

Durban was almost an entire season ago :rolleyes: And was pretty much a fluke.

I think Jérémy deserves it more than Montcourt, and that he would do better on this surface :shrug:

I struggle to see how Chardy is more deserving. Montcourt has a higher ranking, 3-0 h2h, more ATP wins, more GS wins....nothing suggests Chardy deserves it more. Fair enough he won Barnstaple but other than that he did sod all the whole of last year other than choke a chance to beat Nieminen :shrug:

although I like Chardy's game ten time more than Montcourt's, I reckon this WC is totally justified :shrug:

I think giving Montcourt the wildcard is probably more of a political decision than one based on potential at the tournament. I would have preferred Eysseric to get it since he showed real improvement in the late season.
