We all know what happened the last time he got into a slugfest with JMDP right before facing Murray, and this time he doesn't even have a rest day.

If he beats Ferrer 2-0, he will be qualified and would definitly be wise not to go all out against JMDP. Going through JMDP, Nole and Murray on three consecutive is always a tough ask, with the diminished recovery powers of Federer's aging body probably an impossible one.
It doesn't matter. Federer will definitely not tank.
