I forgot another reason why (perhaps), he takes this TMS much serious than we hoped ...
Today in www.ole.com.ar
He defends the points of last year final (against Federer).
And what happens if he loses those points? Maybe will go away of the group of the top eight -today is 8ø - and that will mean that in 4 rd of RG he would face one of top eight.
Obvious: everything depends on the drawing and to face in eighth Roddick, Hewitt, Safin, Agassi or Henman in clay is not so bad; but also they could be Federer, Nadal or Gaudio, in that round and another one of that group in the following one.
