Dumbass Fed, why you no prepare for indoorseason?
The tournament in Shanghai doesn't start next week so Roger has enough time to prepare for the next tournaments
He is experienced enough to handle such a situation.
There are a lot of people criticizing Roger when he doesn't play Daviscup - not just here on MTF
- and it got especially harsh 2 years ago when he didn't went to Kazakhstan in September.
It's surely not ideal that the encounter will be played on outdoor clay but on the other hand it takes place in a European country which is only a short flight away from Switzerland.
Roger likes to represent his country and is very close with his team. There's nothing bad in spending a few days with your friends
Roger had a good rest before he went to Cincinatti and wasn't involved in any 5 set matches in New York.
I don't know when he went home to Switzerland and how long it takes for him to get over jetlag but I guess he should be fine physically.
There are also still a few days left until the first match will be played.
Personally I'm happy that he will be going to Amsterdam because I will be able to attend the encounter
