This and That

by Savannah

"Some people have that drive more than others who've been #1. Rafa doesn't seem like he cares as much for #1, or he doesn't show it."

The Monogram

Jean-Francois Caujolle, is telling anyone who will listen that he is not happy with Andy Murray.
Caujolle first spoke with L'Equipe, and then to Eurosport France, and THEN the British press, about how furious he was that Murray had withdrawn from next week's event in the south of France.

Murray was due to be top seed in the tournament but pulled out so he could "take an extra week off to recuperate and recover for the long season ahead".

Not a good enough excuse according to Caujolle, who now wants Murray suspended by the ATP, especially as it is the second successive year the Scot has pulled out of his event.

"Murray did the same thing to me last year," Caujolle said with what we imagine was a typically Gallic shrug of the shoulders.

"He can't know what it is to keep his word. A week ago, he asked me for a wildcard to play doubles with his brother Jamie and I gave him one.

"A few days ago he asked me for five hotel rooms and I gave him them. The number one seed of a tournament should have a sense of responsibility. If he does not respect his commitments, he should be suspended by the ATP."

Caujolle has since modified his comments regarding suspension saying he never said that. The fact that he went off on Murray and didn't mention Juan Martin del Potro leads me to believe Delpo was never going to play here.

Wow. The Incredible Shrinking Monogram just can't STFU can he? Forever gloating and self-satisfied. Me! Me! Me! That anyone can worship this conceited ass is incomprehensible.
