No, the exho has prestige without Arroganterer.

The World Number one + World Tour Final and the last Grand Slam winner of 2012 + Olympic Champ, give it a lot of credibility, more than smugfed could ever of done.

Re: Rafael Nadal Injury/Health Update Thread : Nadal out of Abu Dhabi exho

the whole tournament is a joke even by exho standards

they had Nadal seeded into SF and Murray has to play from QF despite Muzza being ranked higher

and now they give Almagro, the young & more exciting option than Federer, dull's spot in sf and Murray still plays extra match

Re: Rafael Nadal Injury/Health Update Thread : Nadal out of Abu Dhabi exho

Federer being a last minute back up for Rafa. When they couldn't get the real star, they had to try and go for the second choice, the old geezer. You have to feel for the tournament director.

RAFAEL NADAL

that doesn't seem like much tbh. are you sure that's the right amount?

there must be some juicy participation fees. top players would require some guaranteed cash before committing to play a lesser tournament, esp if it's an exho.

Regarding Nadal, I wouldn't be surprised if he withdraws from the AO. His comeback probably won't happen until Acapulco.

of course, thats the main reason any pro will play an exho

Isn't this the only exho players actually put effort in though?
