I think he should play. I don't know why you guys treat him as though he shouldn't play more than two or three matches in a row.
Is he that weak?
Because there have been plenty of times where he has said he needed rest after only playing a week or so.
I mean he was still playing on Friday, he was in Madrid the whole week and Paris is another important event. It's not like skipping Basel to go play another IS tournament the following week.. it IS a Masters and how often has Nole played well when he is in his third straight week of tennis.
