Dr. Ivo is on the entry list for Delray Beach, and will hence not try to qualify for the AO, the first time he’ll miss the tournament since 2003. This is sad news; seems like the old bot will retire soon. In his Behind the Racquet interview this week, he said that he has a hard time leaving his kids to travel to tournaments. Seeing as he lives in Miami, that was probably a big influence since he can now stay in Florida rather than travel all the way to Doha. Plus, I guess he knows he didn’t have much chance to qualify anyways.
