Yep I agree he will probably skip it, especially if he wins tomorrow. But if he does, he loses the 360 points he got last year in Miami from reaching the semis. So he would get the no.4 ranking back on Monday then lose it straight away to Ferrer after Miami. That Top 4 ranking is important going into the clay season as he isn't going to be able to gain any points on last year other than in Madrid (as he won everything). That potentially leaves him at no.5 for Wimbledon, not a good draw.
