    Dumb move IMO. He could hurt himself and miss out on the 2 Majors he has his best chance of winning.

    Two reasons, he needs points badly to get back up in the rankings to be seeded higher at Wimby, and he has no points to defend at the clay swing where he is a very decent player outside of the Nada-Djoker equation and two this could quite possibly the last year for Fed.

    Yes, I was kinda thinking that too. This could be his farewell year. Would not be surprised but Australia will be pissed if he does not show now. I think maybe next year where he can do a grand tour. Maybe just the majors.

    Fed is going for his 100th title this weekend. I could see him hanging around until he surpasses Jimmy Connors who won 109.

    Likely he will quit before passing Connors. That type of strike rate he doesn’t have anymore he would have to win five title every season for next two years which are his maximum possible fruitful years.

    He didn't miss the Australian Open.

    Putting it another way, playing the French Open in the past has never caused him to miss one of those two above majors, the Australian Open.
