Thanks SP for the news.

It should just be the fatigue and nothing serious. I feel sorry for Japanese fans...But I think it should be the right decision for Roger.

One side note. I shouldn't have said this, but sorry Swiss fans...I wish Roger never plays DC again. It is simply too physically and mentally demanding...and for nothing...pls pardon my selfishness.

This will bring up of course the issue "Roger and his playing Davis Cup". The fact is, Roger played three best of 5 set matches in three days for DC, which didn't count for the ranking points, after a hard fought North American hard court season. Switzerland lost the tie. Roger withdrew from Tokyo where he was the defending champ. He will lose points.

Good thing, though, is that he showed up in Prague and thrilled the crowd and fans, and of course he won his matches.

Crap Roger. He's only played ONE optional so far this year. YE #1 is still up in the air.

I hope now he will play (and do well in) Madrid, Basel and Paris and of course TMC......and then forget about those stupid exhos with Sampras. If he's bothered by fatigue no need to participate in those silly things. Although I'm sure he's getting $$$$$ just to show up.

I don't understand the fatigue, unless it's the past 3 years just catching up with him...which is very possible. Roger has played ONE optional event this year. No Doha, no Halle, no Tokyo. He had an early exit in IW and Miami and said that after Miami he had 9 days holiday in the Caribbean. After the US Open he reportedly spent several days on holiday in Capri, Italy.

Obviously I'm not him and can't feel what he's feeling. But I honestly would feel sick inside if Roger lost the #1 ranking this year because he only played one optional. Especially with winning 3 slams. Of course Nadal doesn't appear to be 100% physically right now and these upcoming events are on his least favorite surface. So I can only hope Roger outperforms him the rest of the year.

He is taking quite a big risk with the #1 spot (IMO) by not playing Tokyo since he won it last year but it could be that he intends to play Madrid, Basel and Paris. If he indeed plays Paris then a withdrawal here makes more sense.

After he lost to Djoker in Montreal, he said he 's not going to chase points. He was behind TFA in the race then.

Not unless remaining #1 is no loger a top priority. Or he's just taking the risk that Nadal won't perform well the rest of the year. If he intends to play Paris then I think withdrawing from Tokyo was smart. Especially not knowing who's going to show up in Paris.

He's been dropping his optionals all year...

motivation slump slump slump

Yes, he's won the ones that matter again this season, but in the long run.... he may suffer, only MM event he played - Dubai - he player rubbish all week.

and i dont just mean ranking points issues, but he is always rusty after breaks, i forseen it all and said to you all in Dubai this year.... his rusty form might be because of all the long breaks, and sure enough.... he blew out early in Indian Wells and Miami like some kind of journeyman a few weeks later

so watch out for the early rounds in Madrid ppl, you heard it here first.

and even playing badly in Basel he is easily in the semis or final, in otherwords..... CYA Paris

Pioline will be furious.
