It's next week. But he won't play there for sure.
I expect him to play Bangkok starting at 24/09/2007,
Madrid, Paris and Shanghai until the end of the year.
Having in mind he will not win all these tournaments,
in fact he may even skip one of them, I think he will
not put too much pressure on his body by playing them.
As long as he's not afraid of 'playing the game', literally and figuratively speaking, and learning how to adapt to hardcourts, I don't see any problem with him not winning. I just hope he ever gets the attitude of pulling out a tournaments because he knows he can't win them.
The more he plays, the better he'll get, if ever he is to get better. Won't get anywhere practicing against Tony, though.
...And he shouldn't be bothered about his H2H going down either.
