Federer not scheduled to practice

Looking at practice schedule page (Practice Schedule - Schedule - Australian Open Tennis Championships 2017 - Official Site by IBM) I didn't see his name since the semifinal match. Is this normal?

Not making excuse for tomorrow (I am in ruins already since Rafa won his semis) but could this mean he really has a leg issue?

Does any of you have any info about that? He can lose in 3 tomorrow easily even if healthy, but I'm really hoping he's fine.

8th day of July 2012: 7-time Wimbledon champion!

Once upon a time there was a myth about strong and weak eras. On this glorious day the clownery was eventually unmasked: 30 y.o. past-prime daddy Fed became #1 once again in the supposed strong "Spartan" era with his rivals at their peak.
And they all lived happily ever after.
Long live King Federer!

Re: Federer not scheduled to practice

maybe he will practice indoors to not give away strategy. i think the announcers said that Dimitrov did that

Re: Federer not scheduled to practice

You guys are giving up faster than Maria fans when she plays Serena.

Dimitrov was scheduled to practice in the same court as Nadal, just 2h later.

Thanks, I wasn't aware they had this chance.

Re: Federer not scheduled to practice

He is old and needs two days to recover.

His training will consist of convincing himself that he can win based on talent.

P.S. The reason for the current lack of depth in tennis is not the slowing down of surfaces, rather Roger Federer consistently beating the young guys.

Well someone said Rafa did not practice as well and he did not give press conf before Final but Fed has done it.

Re: Federer not scheduled to practice

Given the amount of hype surrounding this match, Fed may have a nervous breakdown, because he has no answer for Nadal in best-of-5-sets, and more people are about to witness it than ever before.
So I don't blame him for playing up the injury card.

I already told in the OP I wasn't making excuses and I am well aware Rafa is the overwhelming favourite tomorrow... I knew you would show up though.


Back on topic, Rafa is practicing tomorrow: Practice Schedule - Schedule - Australian Open Tennis Championships 2017 - Official Site by IBM.

I don't know, if the announcers said, probably not.

But I think he originally was scheduled to pratice in court 16, 17:30 to 18:30 I believe.

You probably forgot guys that Federer being at one's best has powerful weapon to completely crash Rafa on hard court, what can not be said of Nadal. Everything depends on the brightness of a fire bursting out Federer's racquet.

Probably only not available for public viewing
