Definetely not a reasonable thing to do before a two-week Grand Slam. Especially if you're No.5 in the world.

Anyway, we don't call him Vulture for no reason though.
Just from memory:

Djokovic #3, 2009, played Brisbane and Sydney (late wild card for Sydney).
Hewitt, #4 2006, played Adelaide and Sydney.
Moya, #5, 2005, Won Chennai, 1st round loss Sydney (also played both in 2004 when #7).
Hewitt, #3, 2005, played Adelaide and won Sydney (also played both in 2001 when #7).
