But after him, the list is pretty much bad. Valencia has a better all round list.

Why is Nadal playing here and not in Valencia? Eager to spoil Roger's party (if there will be any)?

Weird that Mahut, who is hot in singles right now, only play doubles with Llodra?

Raonic arrived in Basil and withdrew at the last minute, personal reasons. Likely exhausted from too much tennis.

Raonic arrived in Basil and withdrew at the last minute, personal reasons. Likely exhausted from too much tennis.
I'm not surprised at all that he withdrew given how much he played ... but why would he
a) travel to Basel & then withdraw and
b) cite personal reasons rather than fatigue
Does he avoid a penalty or something by actually going to Basel? Is fatigue not a "good enough excuse" to get out of commitment?

I believe this is true only if they haven't played the required number of 500's.

I believe this is true only if they haven't played the required number of 500's.False (read the rulebook): commitment players also can receive zero-pointers if they fail to play less than four 500 level events in a year, but all players who enter & withdraw from any 500 level event receive zero-pointers unless they meet one of the two above exceptions.
