    I don't see his name in the draw! The top 2 seeds are Djokovic and Ferrer.
    I think it's okay because he needs some more rest as he's getting old.

    I would be more pissed if Murray didn't play Shanghai than Federer.

    Federer needs his vacations.

    Don't think Fed's even playing Shanghai either though? Not sure.

    Federer should play Shanghai and skip Paris.

    I think Federer should go all out in Shanghai and then Basel/Paris/WTF, he'll get more than enough rest once the WTF is done, like 2 months or so.

    This is his last chance to make a dent in the Sampras record cabinet, that is 6 years ended at no 1.

    Federer might feel bad about the idea of skipping the tournament 2 years in a row...especially since it seems to be struggling.

    Roger Federer on FB just a moment ago:

    "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!"


    Case closed. He's playing.
