So playing at home is unacceptable?
No. Would have been more acceptable if he didn't drop Shanghai though. He skipped Asia completely. Played two challengers. How's he planning it?
Obviously he won the first one, so we won't say its a bad decision, but really, I hope this is the last. Sentimentality shouldn't come in his way at this stage. Besides the Belgians who care enough can watch him in Rotterdam or Marseilles or Nice or Basel, etc. Or he's always going to skip Asia because of Mons?
