I'm not looking for something, I just don't get his schedule. It doesn't make any sense to me not to enter a Masters Series where he can get so many more points than in a normal event.
(As for the AO, some people said he just didn't enter the qualies in time?)
You don't have to enter qualies 6 weeks before. Ok, qualified for Indian Wells, then qualified and made the final in Miami. Flies to Sweden and has to adjust from a slow hardcourt to a fast ice rink and he had a minor leg problem as well. Well cumulative effects from a lot of tennis in a short space of time. Canas with hampered movement is Karlovic without the serve.
No, he made a decision not to enter the AO qualies cause winning the Sao Paulo CH was equivalent to a 3rd round at the AO and for him to do that he would have to have won 5 matches. At the time he and Etlis took that choice.
