iirc he said he will try to play it again this year. Of course, it will depend on his fitness and how the season progresses for him but I would say there's a pretty solid chance he will be there, it's his backyard after all and a very special tournament for that reason. I guess we will know, for sure, with a month or so of anticipation, but if I had to bet on it, my money would be on his presence! nothing beats finishing the tennis season at home
I know that part of the country really well, been hiking there for a few years now. Also, last years line-up looked good.
