he asked a wild-card here last year to withdraw in last minute because he had slept badly and had a problem with his neck (to play very well in Bercy next week), which was understandably very badly considered.
his presence has been announced for months
I don't think he can afford withdrawing once again for his reputation to tournaments (esp. as he's had other -even though less dramatic- problems in Dubai, Rotterdam ...)
But I think he will drop Paris to be ready for the WTF (so will Federer as well imo)
I wonder more about Del Potro, esp. if Argentina qualifies for DC final, and as he's also entered Vienna (finalist last year) previous week.
