Federer withdraws from Doha due to back injury. Tsonga playing exho with Edberg

Smart move.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Federer withdraws from Doha

Rob Koening stated it on Twitter and he's working at Doha.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Federer withdraws from Doha

Good move I would think. So does this mean his streak is snapped? What's the general opinion on pre-match withdrawal when a player's on a streak?

Re: Federer withdraws from Doha

I would say it would because he wasn't defeated because the Match wasn't played.

Re: Federer withdraws from Doha

Afraid of Nadal and afraid of his winning streak being bombed by Jo ...... orrrr, maybe he's just injured. Seeing his history, I'm with the last one, get well for the AO, Roger.
