    Ah, good, the tourney wouldn't be the same without him.

    Nice to hear he's chilling out in his off time, hopefully he won't be too relaxed if he has to meet Delpo or Djoko in Basel :)

    Is this the tourney that renamed their stadium "Roger Federer Tennis Center" or something to that effect?

    A must-win for old Rog, if that's the case.

    I can't even begin to imagine how intimidating that must be.

    He won't play, he'll just watch and cheer for the GOAT. :)

    That was a low blow...

    pretty cool to have his home town stadium named after him.

    rod laver arena is based in melbourne, but the rocket was born in queensland!

    It is good to know that Nadal's injuries have healed.

    There is a possibility he has been banned for the past few tournies, and the ban has now been lifted.

    I know, it must be awkward for him to get the 16th before Nadal gets his 7th, since they are good friends.

    nah i mean it would be awkward for federer in the 2010 aus open trophy ceremony because everyone would be asking whether he will be able to handle defeat again or whether he will cry during his runnerup speech, it is a very awkward situation after what happened in 09

    Nadal hasn't won a tourney since April and it's quite funny for some of you are so sure he'll be there again(and win it). I'll tell you this....if Nadal failed again, we will be hearing him and his fans making the same stupid excuse about his injury which nobody buys it except the *******s.
