Time to move on. This event is over a month away. I really hope Fed works on some new tactics to employ against the new generation of players who will come out attacking him. He has the tools but needs to use them.

Yeah, you're right - time to move on. We can't keep on being sad all the time, eh?

Feds will come back, I'm sure of it. :rocker2:

Time for Fed to get that movement (especially FH movement) back on track in Dubai.

I hope so, I am usually very positive but after the semi results I don't know what to think anymore.

The upside to all this Australian tragedy is Fed will be ready to come out blasting March 3. It will be the return of TMF all year long every match.

Hopefully he comes out moving well and playing the attacking tennis he's capible of!

Also, lets hope he's 100% prepared this time around. Clearly the illness didn't help Fed at the AO.

Ridiculously strong line-up.

Anyway, I'm not sure I see the point in taking more than a month off right now. Why not play one of the february optionals and rack up a few more points?

Infact, I'd rather have him play two february tournaments and then skip Dubai. March looks too busy with him playing Dubai, Indian Wells, Miami AND the Sampras exhibition. Then there's the busy clay court season right after that.
