It's nonsense. Just the same as last year, he takes a big break off from now to Basel so he's fully fresh for Paris and the WTF.
Oh don't spoil it, I was going to buy him tickets to somewhere for a nice long rest. I hear Mars is quite nice at this time of year.
I just think he's still being petulant because he lost the Olympic final to Andy and wasn't the crowds darling for a change. Poor baby.
