Source - http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/news/wounded-federer-wants-break-tennis-091918062.html Is there much to speculate here? It is just that he's tired and needs to rest and recoup for the indoor season, like any player who plays extended amount of weeks tennis? Or is there something more significant to read inbetween the lines? Although Fed's older, I'd say he'll be fine come a couple weeks of rest. Skip Asia and he will be back to winning for the rest of the year.
