Interesting to see that Nadal has also left IMG too, and he has also withdrawnfrom Abu Dhabi with a virus.
They are losing big names. Djokovic just signed but what is going on with that organisation?
And do you think Federer skipped Miami because IMG opposed Indian Wells prize money? Maybe he is trying to use his authority to make sure the ATP and IMG don't work against lesser ranked players for their own interests?
Wow you being a dedicated fan and blogger of RF I don't expect you joining this forum of trolls.
I think it's a combination of both IMG and schedule. He probably thought that the 6-week break in 2012 did him good and he won Madrid right after that. So why not go for an 8-week break? I think Fed will have a clear decision after his performance in the AO without any matches.
Love your blog posts by the way.
