I was looking forward to seeing him. A stomach virus now?, bad things really do come all together... I guess it could be the knee and he's just saying this, but he sounded so sure about playing just a few says ago, I don't see what could have changed.

It's not worth playing AO and risking knee injuries again on hard courts if he has no chance of winning
I'm sure Rafa does care about the ranking.
I agree it's probably not worth it now to play Doha and AO. He's said his knee isn't quite right yet.
