French Open'
French Open champion Carlos Moya and Rafael Nadal, who won this year at Roland Garros.

Agassi pulled out for personal reasons, Moya has an injured right shoulder and Nadal has tendinitis.

Guillermo Coria was seeded second, followed by Nikolay Davydenko and Mariano Puerta.
The indoor tournament begins Monday and ends Nov. 6.

Roddick is very lucky since most of the best players would not be playing. Therefore it'll not be that interesting to watch the tennis tournament on TV. And with my favourite Andre Agassi not playing, I don't think I will be watching the matches that much. Though of course, with Roddick being a good player too, I would still be interested to watch him in the finals.
