Re: $50,000 Osprey, FL (USA) 2013 | Mar 25 (Quali Draw)
It's an exception, there is no need for rules. The problem is as well that Nassau is no longer being played and really there is no strong challenger in this 4-6 weeks when players are in States.
I never saw any of them complaining about weak field in India or Africa when they play challengers there, nor they will complain about some 50k in States during Roland Garros and Wimbledon when cut off for MD is around #500. It doesn't seem fair but it is how it is. And majority of them are not even Americans( I mean players in Q-draw and alt.) and they weren't playing IW or Miami so they could have decide to play any other tournament if they were smart enough.
