Just when Nadal needed an easy draw

Re: Roger Federer Pulls out of Shanghai Masters

I'm pretty sure all top 3 will be out of this tournament.

How is Federer pulling out relevant?

Juan Martin Del Potro

David Ferrer - Tommy Haas - Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

Andy Roddick - Juan Carlos Ferrero - Mardy Fish

Re: Roger Federer Pulls out of Shanghai Masters

Possibly planned to do this - he wasn't entered for Beijing or Tokyo either.

He clearly doesn't much like the surface in Shanghai either.

Good move. Shame about the rankings though.

Re: Roger Federer Pulls out of Shanghai Masters

If Rafa stays in the draw, he might have some trouble with Del Potty or perhaps Soderling.

Maybe now Murray has a shot to win but I am sure Novak will play

Re: Roger Federer Pulls out of Shanghai Masters

Nadal will not put 100% for the rest of the events before YEC I'm sure. He wouldn't want to tire himself out playing the MMs while the others having some good time relaxing and rest for YEC. We'll probably see Tsonga, Berdych etc. dominating the Asian/indoors season.

It is about schedule and getting some rest . He is not that young anymore



He does like Shangai, he played well there in the past .

As Tokyo/Beijing, he played once in Tokyo and he won it and has never played Beijing.
