I love the TV spectacle of the MS event on one of the most beautiful pieces of real estate in the world. In person, I would have to pinch myself if I ever luck out to go one day. My questions have to do with the schedule and the 25% absenteeism (out of top 32). #1: I guess, due to limited court space, play starts on Sunday yet half of the top seeds don't get into action until Wednesday. That makes it necessary to play 5 straight days to final. The "tops" in the other draw-half gets the one match on Tuesday, sit a day and play Thursday through possibly Sunday. Which side do you think most players prefer and how hard is it to start the Euroclay with such a schedule? Are the other MS events' schedules stacked that severely? #2. Eight of the top 32 plus Delpo are missing due to injury or scheduling choice. Is relevance watered down and which if any absentees do you see factoring through RG? Obviously, Djokovic will factor so please comment on the remainder. Have at it L&G!
