Federer has been bad the entire tournament. It's no surprise that he's losing this. Still don't think Murray takes Novak in his current form on these courts, though.
fed wasn`t in his best form for this tournament , he said after the davis cup that he needed rest because he was tired and hurt , his serve low very much since the us open where he serves very bad too , maybe his back problems returns again and with 31 years old the time for recovery are more longs.
federer not looks confortable in china after the intenet incident with that tard too.
if nole not played in beijing , for sure federer should skip shangai but for mantain the nº1 for 300 weeks he play here.
it`s dangerous but the record is amazing , maybe the better for him should not playing in shangai and be very fresh for the indoor season
