    Federer posted this on his facebook page today:

    "Looking forward to going back to China and playing in the Shanghai Rolex Masters. I have always enjoyed China and I can't wait to see my great chinese fans again. See you soon!"

    How could anyone ever doubt Maestro? He's a man of his word and he never ever lets down his fans!

    Of course Maestro is very #humble.

    Did he really spell "chinese" in lowercase? Maybe he should just go back to sweden and retire for good.

    I hope he wins, Paris might take too much out of him if he needs to win there.

    Meh, Murray has his Major now, back to full on Federer backing for this tennis fan this year :twisted:

    Did you just say Federer was from "Sweden" and also spelled Sweden in lowercase? Maybe you should just retire from this sane forum?

    Always smile when you enter a room, dear - it relaxes others AND it lifts the features of the face.

    Are they serving complimentary or discount pork soup dumplings in the stands? They may wish to consider these things if attendance is an issue. Or maybe just retire the fred.

    Awesome news. With all the endless talk of when Nadal might be coming back, this was the news I was waiting to hear.

    Glad he is deciding to play Shanghai this time as opposed to last year, hopefully he has rested up and is ready to end the year as no.1 but let's see what djokovic has to say about that.

    It's a shame the tennis year is coming to an end, this is the first season where i've watched most of the tournaments hopefully 2013 is a good year
