Have you noticed at the TC Open that there is one player in the TOP 20...James Blake.
In contrast, 11 of the TOP 20 players are at Dubai. Obviously, I am in jest with the sandbagging reamark, but I wonder what would lead a player Ranked 6th in the world, too NOT go to Dubai ? Except for being afraid of Rafa and Roger of course.
Ranking Points 300
Ranking Points 175
If Blake could win Dubai, it'd shoot him to the 3rd Spot in the Rankings (sans that Roger and Rafa problem).
