If that is truly the case, then why haven't Rafa played them since 2005?
Answer: Because they are minor tournaments, less prestigeful than Dubai etc. AND Rafa has traditionally needed rest in this month.
Now, he needs match practice and this is the best place to ease into the season - it's clay and him and Ferrer are pretty much the only top-10 players present in those tournaments.
