If the player isn't high enough to be there in the first place - tough - don't wish for withdrawals (which really only happen due to injuries/illness/personal prolems for another player) to get him there under false pretences
OK - rant over.
I was hoping for WCs first and now I hope for players to skip the clay season
I do not wish injuries to anyone, but I would not mind some players not being there!
You will find that many players that are somewhat healthy and could play RG are not playing, especially on the women's side (e.g. Haynes, Rubin), because it is clay or because it is too far away. So you are wrong in stating that withdrawals only happen in case of injuries etc.
