I highly doubt he's going to play Stuttgart. On the press conference he almost let it slip that he already decided not to play there.

Do you have a link to his press conference?

If I lose the first set, the match will be complicate, no?


My favorite Federer and Nadal quotes following their 2008 Wimbledon final:

“But right now, it’s not much of a how do you say? a feel-good thing.”
-Roger Federer
"In the last game, I didn't see nothing. The true, I wasn't see nothing, no?"
-Rafael Nadal

His current "best 5th" result is 5pts from Rotterdam, so the maximum he could win from Stuttgart is 45pts.

Re: ATP Champions Race to Shanghai 2008

From the ATP website
Quote:
New Wimbledon champion Rafael Nadal is among a star trio announced as the first qualifiers for the 2008 Tennis Masters Cup. The Spaniard will join four-time champion Roger Federer, whom he beat in an epic Wimbledon final, and Novak Djokovic at the prestigious circuit finale
How is Federer already qualified, I understand that it's pretty unlikely that he'll end outside the top 8 in the race with the points he has at the moment, but it is mathematically impossible for Federer to end outside the top 8 or is there some other rule which explains why he's already qualified for TMC, or is this a mistake on the website.

Djokovic already being qualified isn't surprising, he won a GS title this year and GS champions only need to be inside the top 20 in the race to be allowed to go to TMC

Re: ATP Champions Race to Shanghai 2008

sure it's mathematically impossible. just play around with the remaining tournie points and try to allocate W,F,SF to the 8 players behind fed. there aint enought points out there to get them all past fed!

Ok, I was just wondering, I hadn't actually tried checking whether it was mathematically possible for Fed to end outside the top 8
