He is playing Düsseldorf Qualies and Doubles Main Draw. He also hasn't won a match here yet.
I think it's a smart decision, because he is more likely to get some ranking points in Düsseldorf than Paris, especially with his current form, and he will still have some time to prepare for the grass season. He has to defend a first round at Wimbledon.
