No - he is not injured. Just prefers to concentrate on the clay court season where he expects to get more points. He will try and qualify for Viña del Mar the week after Australia, and already has a Wild Card for Buenos Aires. According to reports in the Argentine Press, his advisers feel a long and expensive trip to Oz with no guarantee of getting into the Main Draw, and then having to come back and readjust to different time zones and climate etc - coud jeopardise his clay court chances in South America.
