I hope once this is done he realizes that he's not healthy, and coming back because a surface suits you is no good, don't come back until you're healthy
I don't think he has come back early because the surface suits him, but because he got direct entry into tournaments where he could pick up a cheque for a 1st round loss. I can see his point of view - he'd earned his way into the tournaments, and he hasn't had the opportunity to make any money while he's been injured. He'll pick up $3,870 for losing 1st round here.
I think he's in denial. He knows that grass is his best surface, and he doesn't want to believe that he's really too injured to play, he wants to think that he can still compete because he's good on grass, he doesn't want to go the entire grass season without winning, and getting anything out of it.
I understand playing RG, that was for the check, but here he's not getting that much money, I think it was more about being in denail than money.
At least this time next year he won't have anything to defend on grass so he can gain

i agree and i think it must be so frustrating for him the way the grass season has gone. I think that he was doing so well for a time there that it looked like top 100 again was only a matter of time, certainly possible that he'd be there by the end of the year
that might also be why he's still playing, because he still wants to try and get back there by the end of the year
