I'm stating the obvious to say that a lot will depend on his draw, and how many clay court specialists (floaters and lower seeds) he has to play in the early rounds. That's where his lack of clay court matches is most likely to show. If he makes it through to the second week, then it's a different story, since he will be match tough. That's when the time off would actually help him.
