It was better to go to play indoor in Europe, for example.
For me it's better, because Filippo Volandri will not have an hard match against a player that doesn't play often on clay.
Filippo can win this match against Lars, but indoor it was exactly the contrary.
It’s likely to be schedule arrangement….. He’s in Brazil the week after then over to Scottsdale etc.
One thing I do know, or that I’m not confident of is, Lars will not beat Volandri on clay. Lars just doesn’t have the experience in my opinion. Last year Volandri more than doubled the amount of clay tournaments in which Lars played. As you said the tables might very well be turned if this was on hard court.
