he's becoming more a business man than a tennis player. That could explain his 12 losses this year for only 35 wins, he became an average player but a great business man.

Nice word play...said another way, at age 32, he is 35-12 on the tour...respectable for most, but disappointing for Fed.

Fed has always tried to be an ambassador for the sport. Yes, he enjoys the paycheck at the end of the week, but he also enjoys the raising of awareness for the declining sport. Perhaps he's just trying to make it more than just about "him".

Federer is a very smart business man. China is a massive market with almost 20% of the worlds population. Increasing his Popularity and fan base in China means more $$$!

Certainly there is growth potential as tennis is virtually nonexistent in China however it is still limited. Tennis courts take a lot space for only two or four players at a time and that comes at a very high price in Chinese cities.
