In a press conference Nicolas Mahut said: "I've always said, and I will say it once again to make sure that to avoid any doubt, I don't want to stop playing singles. If I stop at one point, it will be because I am not entitled to play in such tournaments.
I could play in doubles for the Olympic Games. All my schedule will turn around this. I will play Masters 1000 in the U.S. If I'm not qualified, then I'm not playing anymore."
