I think the ATP does not recognize "I'm really tired or feeling the need to train or stay at home rather than play/travel" as a legitimate reason not to play in a Masters' series event (maybe not for some other events). So players have to identify an "injury" even if they really are not injured. That makes it hard to know whether Tommy's back really is bothering him or he is just resting up.
