It all gets very interesting now, as Ferrer, just 7pts ahead, isn't down to play next week...
Isn't exhaustion a valid medical reason?! I thought he just needs to go there, let the tournament doc attest he is exhausted (I can't believe Lyon will force him to play since it would jeopardize his chances for Bercy) and take part to a couple of signing sessions and promo stuff.

Anyway, I don't care about him going to Shanghai, I'm afraid he will be exhausted if he does and chances are big he will only be cannon fodder there.
