Will fatigue affect Federer at TMC?

Playing 3 weeks of non-stop tennis, in 3 different countries and then flying to Shanghai and expected to bring your best isnt easy even if you are #1

Discuss.

Re: Will fatigue affect Federer at TMC?

Having played less than 15 tournaments the entire year and taken frequent month-long breaks, fatigue is the last thing Federer should be complaining about. He has the option to withdraw from Paris if he so desires, as he has already played 8 out of the 9 required Masters events and if he doesn't, then he probably figures it won't affect his TMC preparation. It's not as if any of his matches are particularly energy-draining.

I support: Roger Federer; Richard Gasquet; Radek Stepanek; Mario Ancic; Robin Haase; because they are cool.

I also support: The Killers; Death Cab for Cutie; My Chemical Romance; The Smashing Pumpkins; Radiohead; because they are pretty cool, as well.

"It is cruel, you know, that music should be so beautiful. It has the beauty of loneliness of pain: of strength and freedom. The beauty of disappointment and never-satisfied love. The cruel beauty of nature and everlasting beauty of monotony." - Benjamin Britten.

Since Basel is probably far more important to him than Paris, this isn't an option.

Re: Will fatigue affect Federer at TMC?

If he shows fatigue despite having a week to rest or train lightly or whatever his regime is then he is not in the shape that should be expected of him.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game
