“I would have loved to have played in Montreal, but I was quite hurt by the comments of Mr Lapierre that I was shown in The Montreal Gazette recently.

“I don’t think his comments were necessary, and they contradicted everything he had told my management previously:  that I was not getting a wild card because I am not Canadian.

“The fact that my original request was turned down isn’t really an issue: I would have been happy to play qualifying, but I felt that they kind of stepped over the line with this interview, making public our correspondence and even misrepresenting it.  Unfortunately I don’t feel welcome at this tournament.
