Default Fish Playing Marseille Over Memphis?!?!

Does anyone have a clue why the #1 American is skipping a 500 event this week on his home soil (where he would be the #1 seed) to go play a 250 event all the way in Europe (where he is the #2 seed)?

I know appearance fees are probably the primary reason but that must be a hefty check he's getting to pull this move. Makes no sense at all.

Flying 8 hours first class 9 days after you play one indoor match on clay of all surfaces to play an ATP 500 event in your home country is too draining? You feeling ok? NBA players fly 5 hour flights and play less than 16 hours later....

You should write to the ATP.

It's insulting that a American player chooses to attend a tournament in Europe by his own decision. Crime. I can't even put my head around it.

If you're going to reply to a question on a thread with uneducated, belligerent, responses why even bother?

He's playing Dubai after Marseille. Wouldn't make much sense to travel from Memphis to Dubai. It's much easier to go there from France.

Because you need to stop wasting space with stupid threads based on misinformation.

There's no obvious logic behind the decision, maybe Mardy has immersed himself in French culture and feels like a whole new world has opened up to him. Probably enjoying the crisp winter sunshine as stops to sip his cup of coffee, before he gets back to reading Satre.
