2011 Madrid Masters 1000 - The Player Acceptance List

Posted on April 30, 2011 at 4:08 AM

Tomas was certainly disappointed not to be able to play at the Barcelona Open because of viral gastroenteritis, and imho the fact that he had to play the week before so early on outside clay in Monte-Carlo didn't help... it was only 14 degrees at 10:30 in the morning.

Week 17 (from 25th April to 1st May) Tomas is not playing either. He is not on the player entry list for the upcoming Estoril, Münich, Belgrade tournaments.

Tomas will make his return to the ATP Tour at the Madrid Masters 1000, which begins on 1 May. His last match on clay was at the Monte-Carlo Masters April 14, 2011 (l. to Ljubicic in round 3). Let's hope Tomas will be in good shape after illness and make a victorious return with a good "fighting spirit".
