Re: Federer not invited for Abu Dhabi!

fed failing to build his 401(k) for 2013.

ASI Director-General Gautam Sengupta said the list of India's treasures held abroad was "too long to handle" and there was a need for a "diplomatic and legal campaign" for their restitution from institutions, including the British Museum, the Royal Collection and the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

I laughed. So bitchy. I love that Janko Tipsarevic apparently has a Grand Slam victory ahead of him too.

Re: Federer not invited for Abu Dhabi!

Fed doesn't go to Doha either.

IMG may try to hide his absence by saying they didn't invite him.

Besides, I've seen a lot of mistakes on this website recently. Not always serious reporters.

Their reasons "celebrating the youth, baton carreers of the future, and past champions" don't sound very serious when you know that Ferrer, Berdych and Tipsarevic will take part.

useless old guy

Federer stands against dictature. His home in Dubai is merely a CIA headquarter

Proud supporter of El Tio , the greatest genius alive!

Alchimists transform iron into gold. Boriiiiiing!
Movie-makers transform dreams into reality. Yeah, whatever...
El Tio transforms Dull into a multiple GS champion! Daaaaamn!

El Tio has the keys to weather, court speed, draw making, umpires' decisions and perception of time between points, top players' fatherhood, and my libido!

This signature is in no way ironic. Please don't ever let El Tio think that, for my sake!

Ferrer, Tipsarevic and Berdych are 3 of "the 6 hottest young players of the game" with Djoko, Nadal and Murray : what these marketting guys may say

Re: Federer not invited for Abu Dhabi!

So what? It's a completely understandable decision not to invite an old mug like Noserer. Wish decisions like this were made more often.

Besides, Olderer forum.

Re: Federer not invited for Abu Dhabi!

Fed probably tried to double his appearence fee there too. Organizers tired of getting bullied. Fed gets some rest

everyone wins
