Well, lets put that #1 bullshit on the shelf until Wimbledon time.

Guarding #2 is more important now

Re: Nowhere near # 1 but still marching on to Dubai

I also want to know the reason for pulling the plug on the SA clay swing this year.

Whenever he plays on clay, of course, he always wins, but more than that, he seems to get confidence that remains even after the clay season. After RG, he switches straight to grass and has great confidence in Queens and Wimbledon :shrug:

In 05 when he made his mark, he skipped IW before reaching the Miami final, and this was after a mini clay season.

Not only is it easy points, but the money is also there, and of course, confidence, which has no price.

Good question, I've been asking that myself as soon as I heard he'd indeed be appearing in Rotterdam... :shrug:

Can only think of two reasons:

1) - He believes that playing this tournament + Dubai is a good practice/may enhance his HC performance, etc.
2) - Both of the tournaments pay excuberant appearance fee/prize money. Rumours are that Krajicek (or at least the sponsor) indeed pulled his wallet to have Rafa contend in Rotterdam, and well, as for Dubai, it's no secret that they have cash like oil.

If anyone can come up with better reasons I'll be glad to hear them - as I can't!

OMG, change the thread title :bigcry:

No rankings mention in the thread titles, please. We have a rankings thread.

Tried to tell you that on the Rotterdam thread :p

True. But as genuine Philosophers, we like to rehash things over-and-over again. Especially when the subject is pretty worthless, no? ;)

You could just edit the "Nowhere near #1" out :sad:

Here's a couple of suggestions:

The Dud Does Dubai
Aiming for 2nd Round in Dubai

What is there to remember?

He got beat on a hard court by a player he should be beating blindfolded.

Not an original tune
