Dimitrov probably felt compelled to play here because he was given a WC when he was even younger. It's a smart strategy that the tournament practiced before with Federer: establish a connection with a highly promising junior, so that he is bound to come back when he's at the point at which he will draw huge crowds.

In that regard a WC might almost be better spent on someone like Coppejans or Dzumhur than on De Bakker. (But with 4 WCs De Bakker and Sijsling should be sure locks for a WC). I do expect some young non-Dutchman to get a WC this year. And some charismatic player who slid down the rankings, like Monfils.
