Please name one current player other than Fed who is a great grasscourt player? There are far fewer great grasscourt players than there are great claycourters.
And also name me one player in recent history that skipped RG because they felt it was insignificant? And Andy "clay mug" Roddick does not count.
Also,didn't a lot of clay court player's used to skip Wimby in the past? Skipping a tournament because you suck on that particular surface doesn't make it less prestigious.
