Let's see....exited first round last year so can only gain points. Nadal is injured and might not even play. Murray didn't look that great last week either so he too could be a non-factor. Nah, no reason to be motivated to play Dubai....
as if winning Dubai would make up for the utter horrendousness that was the Australian Open
everything he spent years building up just dissapeared in that tournament .. the way he spoke about other players, the way he lost that final, the pathetic way he conducted himself after losing it, showing the whole planet he is Nadal's bunny and crying about it
my guess is its sinking in for him now
