We clearly know the source for that : René Stauffer is Fed's main biographer and knows him and Luthi very well.

What was the exact source for the confirmation before ?
The organisation only or also a Fedteam source ?

something has to give coz he cant blow of two straight Masters 1000 events, it would kill all hopes of staying #1 for foreseeable future

Well, if he plays Shanghai - yes, I think you are right and Fed won`t appear in France. But skiping Asia means for me last year shedule once again. We will see, personally I`m not sure which variant I like more.

Anyway it can't be last year's schedule : playing 3 weeks in a row would be completely different from what he could do last year with one week to rest between Bercy and the WTF, which was perfect conditions to be able to win both of them.

I don't think Murray will play Paris, I bet he will prioritize WTF like Fed, being a Brit, also this week off would give him the opportunity to make some promotion in his country, that's also part of his work.

^^ True, completely forgot about that week. Anyway if Roger misses Shanghai I think he will fight for all three titles left. It won`t be like he is going to Paris and his focus is somewhere else as it happened before.

I don`t think we will see Andy in Basel. But maybe duong is right and contrary to it he skips french Masters. Anyway I can`t imagine him fighting for titles everywhere, in all 5 things.

last year, Murray asked a wild-card for Basel and withdrew at the last minute because he "had got something bad during his sleep in a bad Swiss bed"

then you can imagine that if he withdraws this year again, it will not be welcome

And Murray has already had some stories which handicapped his reputation towards tournament organizers, then I think he will be careful about those things.

I think for a Brit like him, also so popular in his country this year then promotion in the week before the WTF this year will be welcome, the best schedule is to play Basel and skip Bercy. Also Murray has clearly prioritized events superior to MS1000 tournaments for one year or two.

As for Djokovic, I think he will play Bercy because of his choice not to play Basel or Valencia this year.

PS : please note that I'm not happy that Fed and Murray potentially skip Bercy as I have tickets there, and Fed and Murray were the two players I most appreciated watching live

Yes, I remember that story with Andy. Didn`t think about it from this point, then I should agree with you. Sound reasonable.

Novak for sure will go for title in Bercy - especially if Rogie takes Basel and shortens the difference in Race between them.

PS: I wish I could go, would like to see Richie playing being supported by home crowd.

Basel/Valencia- Bercy- WTF in 3 straight weeks. Why ATP did it this year? If the excuse is the shortening of the season, it was not very intelligent.

yes, you're right, Ljubicic and Fed said they thought it was bad but Fed said "well I'm too old to contest what the youngsters want : it's their future".

The intention was indeed to have a longer off-season, you know the whole debate which Nadal and Djokovic are leading and which will lead to a new calendar from 2014, and for this year, as they could not suppress tournaments in the short term (they actually suppressed another week of the indoor schedule, which means that the whole schedule is 2 weeks shorter, which was presented by the ATP and the leaders as "a great improvement"), they used this "compromise" which indeed is a stupidity and a very bad thing for all tournaments of this period (but as you know, the leaders of that movement don't like indoor tournaments ).

Besides, I remember the first proposal for that was made by Andy Roddick during the WTF 2010 : he said why do we stay like that for one week in London and not play at once ? I want to go back home in the US !
