Re: Federer not invited for Abu Dhabi!

Some people were saying that Federer’s omission from Mubadala World Tennis Championship was due to the end of his deal with IMG, which is the organizer of this event but the company said that that was not the case. IMG’s Managing Director for the Middle East and North Africa, Greg Sproule, cleared that the reason of Federer’s exclusion was the desire of organizers to invite past champions of the event.
I still think the snd of the deal with IMG was the reason. Or they knew Fed wouldn't come and came up with this explanation not to have to say Fed refused to play.
