Um...Rotterdam and Dubai are ATP 500 level tournaments and San Jose and Delray Beach are only ATP 250 level tournaments. What would be the point of Federer playing in a 250 level tournament? Too much competition for him at that level? How often does Federer play in any ATP 250 level events? Maybe he should start playing challengers, too? In any case, he plays in plenty of tournaments in the U.S., e.g., US Open, Indian Wells, Miami, Cincinnati, etc. How many tournaments does Djokovic play in Japan?
