Chucho said during Roland Garros that he wouldn't play Wimbedon. He has spent the last 10 weeks or so in Europe, and will have another four here during the clay court tournaments in July - so the grass court season is the best time for him to go home, rest and spend time with his family. It's exactly the same reasoning as the American players not coming to Monte Carlo - geographically it's not possible for them to go home for a few days between tournaments like the European players can at this time of year, so they skip the tournaments where they feel they will achieve less I don't blame Roddick/Ginepri etc for missing MC and I don't blame Chucho and the others for pulling out of Wimbledon. Travelling half way across the world to almost certainly lose in the 1st or 2nd round on your least favourite surface is not worth the time, expense and hassle involved for them.

Re: Dent, Acasuso, Moya withdrew from Wimbledon

Moya had good little run last year so it's too bad he won't be here this year.

He will easily make up the points during the Summer clay tournaments if he rests now and makes sure his shoulder is completely healed

Has a grand slam now reduced to being equated with a master series event. With 9 master series events I can understand players missing a few master series each year (Nadal/Federer will probably each miss 3 this year), but voluntarily missing a grand slam.

Admittedly, I consider the ATP/ITF to blame. It is stupid having 2 grand slams separated by 2 weeks. They need to somehow to find another 2 weeks between Roland Garros and Wimbledon to enable a proper build up to a grand slam. The 4 grand slam should be considered the main events of the year and probably should carry double the points that they currently are allocated while retaining the current point structure for other events.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 19 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 26 Master Series.
Nadal 15 GS, 30 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 12 GS, 5 Year End Masters, 30 Master Series.

Re: Dent, Acasuso, Moya withdrew from Wimbledon

I don't think Slams should be skipped unless you have an injury.

Time for the grass season to be extended by two weeks at least, there's simply not enough time to prepare and the likes of Monfils, Rusedski and Nadal were battling to be fit for its Grand Slam after knocks in the first week of the grass season.

An AMS series would be nice too, please

I am BUOH, warrior of heart and soul.

In their eyes - obviously the answer is yes And I agree that the scheduling is to blame. Remember, most of the South American players (and many of the Spanish ones as well) devote their entire year towards peaking for RG - it is their life's ambition to win that tournament - so therefore I guess it's understandable that some reaction will set in when RG is over and they will need some time to regroup. As you say - RG and Wimbledon ARE too close together, and if the ATP/ITF put more space between them then things probably would be different, because players could go home for a couple of weeks after RG and still have time to come back to Europe to prepare on grass. But until then, this kind of thing will happen year after year, and I'm pretty sure there are stll a fair more withdrawals to come
