a Chinese webposter with the pseudo "Blue cat" started on the 25th of september posting on a frequented Chinese sports website a sentence "let you know that I'm going to kill Roger Federer" with a photoshop of a beheaded Fed. Then he kept on every day and the Chinese police was alerted.

Fed landed on a small airport rather than in Shanghai main airport.

If anything can reassure those of us who are scared, I think the Chinese police will do the job better than any other police would have.

what da fuck is this?? Fed brought his wife and kids rite? won't be a bad thing if he loses early and they get out of the country quickly. psychopath on the loose.

Fed telling it like it is

"Sometimes you're just happy playing. Some people, some media unfortunately don't understand that it's okay just to play tennis and enjoy it. They always think you have to win everything, it always needs to be a success story, and if it's not obviously what is the point. Maybe you have to go back and think, Why have I started playing tennis? Because I just like it. It's actually sort of a dream hobby that became somewhat of a job. Some people just don't get that ever."

Re: Roger news and articles

Roger has arrived in Shanghai without his wife and daughters ... very wise. A last minute change of plans he said ... hardly surprising.

I wonder about that, it seems that the organizer said that they would protect "Fed and his family" but I thought that usually his family didn't come to Shanghai, and even more considering the situation.

if anybody knows that ?

I think it's stupid but of course we can't help being afraid which also quite wastes the pleasure of tennis

it should be, the tagline is "The international magazine of Switzerland." And here's what it says on their "About Us" page:
Swiss News enjoys a monthly readership of between 60,000 and 70,000. The magazine is also distributed to international organisations, opinion-leaders in politics and business, chambers of commerce, four-and-five star hotel groups, kiosks, book stores, as well as Switzerland Tourism, and aboard all Swiss International Airlines flights in business class.

http://www.swissnews.ch/headernavigation/who-we-are/

I wanted to get a copy of the French Swiss mag L'Illustre a few times when Roger was featured, and I went to half a dozen stores around Toronto that sell international magazines, but none of them had it and I didn't see this one either (I would've remembered). I might send them an email and ask if they know where in Toronto I can get it or if I can just buy an issue for them directly and they just mail it to me.

Federer: Death threat ‘bit of a distraction’

Matt Cronin
Sunday, October 07, 2012

PRINT THIS PAGE

Roger Federer admits that the online death threat he received recently was somewhat of a disturbance. An Internet user calling himself “Blue Cat Polytheistic Religion Founder 07” posted a graphic message about the Swiss on the popular baidu.com site.

"Obviously maybe it's a little bit of a distraction, there's no doubt about it,” Federer said at pre-tournament press conference for the Shanghai Masters 1000 tournament. “But you have to be aware of what's happening around you," he said. “But that is the case anyway anywhere I go today with my fame and all that stuff."

Federer admitted he first became aware of the issue about 10 days ago, before the information went public.

"So then obviously it came out in the press. That's when things changed.” he said. "It became much more public, which I'm a bit disappointed about, that it did come out in the press. "It was something just very small on a website, nothing clear and concrete, people just debating. That it makes that big news is a bit surprising to me."

Federer's wife Mirka and their twin daughters did not travel to China as previously reported, but he said it had nothing to do with the death threat: "It was a last-minute decision for me to come here in the first place,” he said.

Federer did not play the Shanghai Masters in 2011.
