Main stars pulling out from tourney

Well first it was Maria who has expressed that she will be withdrawing from the Dubai Open and then follow on by Roger Federer and now Rafael Nadal has also mentioned that he will be withdrawing from the tourney. All three were due to injury and needed some time to rest and then get back in shape. But usually it is kind of like that for sports athletes as they will always want to play their best and in the process stretching their limits and causes injury. Maybe there should be an award for the player who has consistently maintain the injury-free status and has always been participating in all the tourneys. Even though the three main stars are out, there are still exciting matches to be expected at the games. Perhaps at the next few tournaments, they will be recovering in time for them.
