it's just disappointing for me on many many levels. Not only is it inordinately poor planning and unnecessarily excessive traveling to a really faraway place, but it upsets me on more personal levels that I don't think are appropriate to get into here, so I won't go there. But the more I've been sitting here thinking about it, the more disappointed I am in him. To see him ditch a US tourney that had always seemed so very important to him, but not just ditch it, but ditch it for one in DUBAI of all places, a tourney known for paying its players up the ass, a tourney for which I have openly spoken out against other players for playing.... I don't think i've ever been disappointed in Andy like this. Because through all the disappointing losses, poor play, lack of preparation, ditching the clay season, all of that stuff, I could always respect him as a person and for the person he always seemed to be, his loyalty and dedication. And this really makes me question that. And that makes me sad.
