Re: Fabrice News and Articles

I was reading back and found the answer myself for Indian Wells, he said last year it's his way to protest against the stupidity of the ATP calendar with only 2 tournaments taking one whole month and he called it a "boycott" when he plays only one of these two events every year:
"Prenez le mois de mars avec les deux Masters Series américains à Indian Wells et Miami. Voilà deux tournois qui bouffent un mois plein du calendrier alors que le reste de l’année, la plupart des autres tournois se marchent sur les pieds. Pour moi, c’est une aberration. Depuis quelques années, je proteste modestement du haut de mon classement en refusant en général d’enchaîner les deux."

And in the January interview I posted a couple of posts ago he said again he'd play IW, but not Miami ("Je jouerai Indian Wells mais pas Miami") - looks like he's going to do the opposite.
