Can't believe Andy's too serious about Paris. Think he'll play and then be happy to reach the QF's, keep is ranking points from last year, and get home on Friday night ready for the WTF's on the Monday. Anyone playing in the Paris final will have a major disadvantage at the WTF
Another 3-4 hour Murray/Djokovic final would effectively wipe both out for the WTF.
It's a tricky one, and that's down to the utterly inept scheduling. All of the top guys will want game time ahead of the WTF - none will want to go in completely cold - but then getting to the weekend could tire them out too much.
The ATP (assuming it is they who do the scheduling) are a disgrace.
