Where are Roddick and Blake?

Not so good at ATP theory, but as much as I was aware ATP Masters Series tournaments are mandatory for top players...

Why Roddick and Blake are not in Europe now?

ATP will do something about that?

Tks. in advance for your explanations...

Re: Where are Roddick and Blake?

There are a lot of threads about that already but I've decided to be nice tonight

Blake and Roddick usually skip the european clay season 'cause they figure they wouldn't win matches anyway, and they don't want to be away from home for such a long time.

Technically they are required to play MC but the ATP has never really enforced these rules

I read somewhere that Federer had to explain to the ATP, using, I think, a medical leave of absence, why he skipped in some years Paris Masters...

And that's why i found kinda strange to see Blake fit enough to play Houston but not bothering to travel in Europe...


Tks for your answer...

It was discussed here why do the Americans hate Monte Carlo? and also in other threads with links within. You can also use the search function to check the same discussion, in the past, just change the year.
