Because of the cut or something like that i heard (last direct entry in Moscow is Alexander Popp with a ranking just inside top 250 while in Lyon it's Santoro who's inside the Top 100...). Maybe when he entered he didn't want to go through the quallies or something.
Actually i don't really know. Because he's ranked 54th (higher than Mathieu who's 57th for ex...) so...
I think he just liked the idea of going to Russia, maybe.
