You're welcome

If Rafa is in form (and healthy) in my opinion only Roger (on all surfaces) ,Nole (clay and hard) and del Potro (hard) can posses a threat to Rafa

But according to the tournament in Abu Dhabi - have a positive attitude mimi - it's the beginning of the saeson, Rafa will be in form for sure

Rafa should refuse to play next year.

Or maybe they won't have the money to pay out to make it worthwhile next year.

next year = 2011.

To fine-tune his game before the start of the season. He will play 2 matches max. No big deal if you ask me.

He's playing two matches in total. It's silly to get agitated over that.

And you can end injured in any match, so I can't see any rational (except for money of course) reason to play exhos - there are many tournaments during year to choose from

You can get life-threatening injury while just practicing. Ask Blake.

Affirmative

But still I can't understand why Rafa is still playing this one.

I started rewatching all AO2009 matches. Currently I'm on Rafa - Haas 3rd round. There is only one word for Rafa's game. D-I-S-M-A-N-T-L-I-N-G == T-E-N-N-I-S!

^I watched the 09 final yesterday on the Tennis Channel, I had forgotten how scary Rafa's form was in that tournament. Some of his forehand winners just don't look like possible shots
