It is nothing serious as far as I am aware, marti. He was never really planning to play Indian Wells (that's why he didn't enter the qualles) as he preferred to take a couple of weeks' holiday - Juan has actually played 8 weeks out of 9 this year and is very tired. When so many people dropped out of the Entry List his name automatically appeared on the Alternate List, but after some serious thought they decided he would be better prepared for Miami and the clay court season if he took 2 weeks off now instead of flying all the way to IW where he was unlikely to gain many points. He suffered with cramps in Acapulco and had to retire from his match with Chela, and had a slight thigh strain so rest is more important for him at this stage. Hope you enjoyed your holiday
