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.
