i think most players say it because they don't want a media frenzy about what they say especially when it is in the middle of a grand slam when they need to be completely focused on tennis.
i think the lower players are more likely to look at the draw because they need to learn about the game of their opponent so they can take advantge on their weaknesses while the top players for the first few rounds only need to focus on their own game and that is enough to get them through coomfortably in most matches.
