Why would he play Fergana? That's on hard court, he's playing the french qualies next week. It makes so much more sense to play a clay event even if that's a future especially because he played a hard court event last week. Fergana is also quite far from Paris, don't want him to be jet lagged.

Peter's clay prep for RG is at a Futures 15K in Romania, where he is the top seed. He won't meet anyone ranked above 1531 until the QF so hopefully he can ease himself in
really he's in the top 200 and he's playing a futures event of this level? he is not lacking in confidence and his ranking is cvlose to his career high right now. He really should not be there
i get he wants clay prep but ...playing such low level competition really isnt going to be that helpful and there are other clay events avaiable that he could have tried. Or maybe instead of playing on hard last week he could have played a clay event
