What are you doing in Harrisburg PA? It's a long way from London.

Well, the problem is that the AO starts in just over two weeks time.
These guys need at least one warm-up event, and this year Doha seems
to be the choice (Federer played there a few times before).

I presume that once Nadal, Federer and Murray committed to Doha then
someone came up with the exo in a nearby location. It's at most 2
matches for Nadal and Federer (3 for Murray), so it's not a huge deal
I suppose.

Probably the huge appearance fees ...

Given that the AO is less than three weeks away, they have to practice
*somewhere*. Exo in Abu Dhabi - nice money, great weather, free practice
facilities, free accommodation, free food, a chance to warm up and hit
against their best opponents with no pressure...what could be wrong with
it?

I can never understand that with people like Fed and Nadal who have
more money they can ever spend, do they really need extra million or
something.

Then again, I guess it is not that much, couple of matches this week
and a tournament next week. Just feels like the break hasn't been that
long, and both were injured at the end of the year, so I would think
they would like to take it easy. But there is a chance they know
better than I how they feel...

Why do these guys want to play so much? Fed and Nadal will play in
Doha next week, right?

I've got the good seats to the final on the 3rd, can't wait, I picked
up some upper tier (cheap seats) to the second day after I realised
Fed/Nadal would be certain to play. Unfortunately all the best seats
to the 2nd day were gone by then. As of yesterday day 2 is the only
one sold out completely. If Fed gets through to the final they'll sell
that out as well I think.
