Re: Calendar for 2009?
Is he playing Davis Cup for sure? when do they decide on who got picked to play the tie?
Considering his schedule of the US hard court, he plays continuously from now til end of US Open, and hopefully that includes 2nd week of USO, and then Davis Cup if he's picked. The week of Sept 21-27 should be a rest week for him really, doesn't make sense to play Bucharest/Metz unless his USO is shorten somehow (touch wood that won't be the case). Besides, the 3 weeks Asian swing is very important since he needs to get a good feel to get himself ready for Shanghai to defend 700 pts. Make more sense if he gets to Asia early to prepare for that.
