Should Djokovic now take WC into Halle or Queens? EDIT: Becker: "No, only exhibition"

Djokovic historically does not play a warm up event on grass, but now with this devastating loss and the new 3 week grass lead up to Wimbledon, should Novak alter his schedule and ask for a WC into either Halle or Queens?

He'd probably get beaten early after such a mental set back. He just needs to recuperate for Wimbledon.

I'm sure he said last week he was looking for one.

Hopefully he comes over to London. Let Murray have a shot before Wimbledon.

No. He should take a break and come back stronger for Wimbledon.

Hopefully not. But if he does better Halle cause of the roof and better atmosphere, more relaxed.

I should add, a Wildcard is obviously on offer from the Queen's Club.

Any news on Djokovic grass plans? Probably he would choose Halle as Queens looks stacked in comparison..

He should not. Last year loss was as devastating if not more devastating because it was his 6th loss in a row against Nadal.

Better to train hard than to play soft.

Considering he's never won on grass outside Wimbledon, he should play one of these.

Yes, he should.
Just like AO at start of the year, a lower event is still a good tune up.

Djokovic doesn't play in the grass season to avoid losing mental edge for Wimbledon.

Smart that he does not, very smart. Good to recover from RG, practice, do an exo or 2, and get on w/ Wimbledon

With 3 weeks it makes no sense not playing. Should play Halle or Queens.

Like he ever plays warm up anyways. he still wins without it so it's better to rest and recover.
