i think he is really wasted ..he fell away physically at the olympics, then tried to win usopen without any tourneys because he was so tired, then struggled on and off before being flat and nowhere in the final..
maybe he needs the rest of the year off, not another attempt of "chasing history"...
everyone is always in, all masters except monte carlo have automatic entry. so it means very little at this stage,
it is up to the player to remove names from entry list., injured players out first but more will surely follow.
