At this point, I think even if Nadal and Safin were to play, we'd still get those excuses so we're doomed either way. I really hope Nadal plays though (I've lost hope for Safin playing) since I think the AO surface will suit him well.
How many total points are offered? And we will have to see how far he gets in the tournament.
