This is what Roger Federer said after defeating Hasse in the 4th tie of Davis Cup at Amsterdam on Sunday.
So, this for sure, again raises the same question should Roger Federer skip Shanghai Masters or probably withdraw from Bercy considering that Basel, Bercy & WTF are on consecutive weeks?
It is virtually impossible to withdraw from Basel as its his home tournament plus playing in one ATP 500 tournament after US Open is compulsory as per ATP rules & ranking penalty provisions.
So, I will hope, Roger Federer skips Shanghai & tries to defend his 1000 points at Bercy, but, then again, as our Stats Guru Vibhu batra will explain to us, that if he skips Shanghai, then Djokovic if he wins both Beijing & Shanghai will regain ATP No. 1 on 15th October, 2012.
So, what do you guys think?
Roger Federer should
(I) Skip Shanghai Masters?
or (ii) Skip Bercy Masters?
or (iii) Play both??
