Infact, Ralph comes back after almost a year like a fully recharged energiser bunny.
In 09 he missed Wimbledon, nothing else.
All the top players take a month off after Wimbledon anyway before the USO series. People sometimes make it sound like he missed a tremendous amount of time in 2009. It looks like a long time because he got trounced early in RG, and then sat out W. But really, he only missed one big event.
