Out of Japan, for injury:
Lol, the top 3 players in the world is more or less injured...
Lets not forget that there are no slams left for the year and they all probably could play but need to recuperate.
Federer is not injured, just taking a break.
The way the master series at Shanghai is scheduled now it wouldn`t surprise me to become the next Paris Bercy where top players skip it to prepare for WTC or are injured,exhausted....Going to Asia for one week makes little sense at this point.2 more indoor tourneys with Paris Bercy before WTC should do it.
I know, thats why i wrote more or less, but after DC vs Italy he said that he had some pain in his arms and legs.
Having twins also have an impact on his decision.
Absolutely, although i hope that didnt injure him
According to Shanghai ATP Masters' website, Federer's cited injury was a recurrent and reinjured back. Federer has not publicly confirmed this to my knowledge.
Nadal is not injured, just taking a fake.
What happened to Del Potro?
His problem back has resurfaced?
A small rumor, not confirmed by him, yet put out there by someone?
Perfect excuse when he loses to Nadal in the YEC. He is too much of a man to admit to pain, but of course people know how bad it is. He may reluctantly admit to it when "pressed" by reporters.
I see it as a good sign ... they are all taking time off so they will be 100% for the Aussie open.. everyone's focusing on the majors more... starting to get very interesting.. the top guys looks like they don't want R-Fed to have a cake walk to #16 Grand Slam records..
LOL for RF it's understandable given his age but for others who are only 22 or 23 y.o.??
I think it's pretty clear that Fed's back was injured in the semis and the finals of the USO. The serving performance is consistent with it.
Keeping his #5 ranking warm.
I imagine it's tough to work up a lot of enthusiasm for the tour's post-U.S. Open swing. Kind of tough for a fan to follow, too.
Good decision, you can never really be too careful with wrist injuries and Murray of all people knows that.
Hopefully he will be fine for Shanghai.
lmao at thread title.
lol that's the first thing that popped into my head
