For me the best players should be nominated. Regardless of some 'rules' the USTA/ITF have announced. Only the rankings should count.
And I do not think Davis/Fed-Cup are lesser events as suggested above. They are in my view highlights of the season. If players do not want to enter, it is their choice.
There is no logical connection to the olympic games however, where the best athletes should compete. In another individual sports like tennis the qualification is often decided by special acchievements (ie 90m in jawelin throw), rather than part taking in team events.
