Ah, good, the tourney wouldn't be the same without him.

Nice to hear he's chilling out in his off time, hopefully he won't be too relaxed if he has to meet Delpo or Djoko in Basel :)

Is this the tourney that renamed their stadium "Roger Federer Tennis Center" or something to that effect?

A must-win for old Rog, if that's the case.

I can't even begin to imagine how intimidating that must be.

I didn't know Pete Sampras is coming out of retirement to play Basel?

He won't play, he'll just watch and cheer for the GOAT. :)

That was a low blow...

I'm sure a janitor somewhere is offended

pretty cool to have his home town stadium named after him.

rod laver arena is based in melbourne, but the rocket was born in queensland!

There is a possibility he has been banned for the past few tournies, and the ban has now been lifted.

I'm happy for Nadal too that he's able to join the GOAT in Basel.:twisted:

lets hope federer can reach the aust open final again, thatd be awkward for him in the trophy ceremony

I know, it must be awkward for him to get the 16th before Nadal gets his 7th, since they are good friends.

it would be awkward, he hasn't seen Nadal in 3 whole slam finals!

hehe.

nah i mean it would be awkward for federer in the 2010 aus open trophy ceremony because everyone would be asking whether he will be able to handle defeat again or whether he will cry during his runnerup speech, it is a very awkward situation after what happened in 09

Nadal hasn't won a tourney since April and it's quite funny for some of you are so sure he'll be there again(and win it). I'll tell you this....if Nadal failed again, we will be hearing him and his fans making the same stupid excuse about his injury which nobody buys it except the *******s.

Yes. It is good news. Now he can lose 0-6, 1-6 and NOT blame it on injuries. yay!!!
