Pulling out of a mug tournament when you're grandfather just died is 'one of the toughest decisions in his career'?

Surely no one will buy that rubbish, sounds like a no brainer to me

Hmm.. seems like picking up an easy title would have got him back in the right frame of mind to compete in Madrid/Rome.

did you forget what Nadal says everytime he pulls out of a tournament ? that it's "one of his favorite tournaments" blablabla

Will Tipsarevic or Troicki play eventually ? I mean they need to get one of the 3 Serbian top-players at least !

Great, I'm more interested in the tournament now. It's completely wide open. I hope one of Fabio, Andreas or Filippo win the title. Or David if neither of them are able to do so.

Default Re: Djokovic pulls out of Djokovic Open

About winning the title to regain confiance... that would not have happened given the field. Actually if he somehow lost (even in the final) would be a terrible thing to him even if it was to a good player in a good day. So yes, better to rest and prepare for Madrid, Rome and RG.

It sounded last year he needed the tournament to increase his winning streak (he even pulled out of MC) before he encountered Nadal in clay. This year it will be just 250 easy points, that hopefully will not make any difference in the fight for no 1.

But i think you are underestimating a little his "toughtest decision". Surely is a small tournament, he was the clear favorite, but being a small country with little tradition, i guess that it means a lot to him play at home.

Default Re: Djokovic pulls out of Djokovic Open

It certainly does leave the field wide open. Based on the web site's entry list, with Djokovic's withdrawal, #38 Pablo Andujar is top seed at the moment. There are 3 wild card slots and Djokovic's spot. I wonder who will fill those? Novak Djokovic's brother, Marko?

I kind of doubt it would happen, but it would be somewhat ironic if Roger Federer went there to use it as a tune-up for Madrid after his long rest. Only 250 points, but it would make up for the 180 he lost at Monte-Carlo. It's a much easier field than Estoril.

Respectfully,
masterclass

Seeing Krajinovic win 3 games against Ferrer has clearly made Djokovic very scared of a repeat of 2010 happening.
