I've heard rumors Fed gonna play Stockholm Open which means he'll play 4 weeks in a row then, which is a bit tough.. seems he wants to protect his No.1 Ranking badly which is great for us, his fans.

It looks very weird.

Maybe Federer is finding a good excuse to not play Basel, so that he can be fit for both Masters events. He'll play Stockholm and Madrid, then bow out of Basel due to exhaustion and then play Paris. I don't see him playing 4 events in a row.

I also heard it already...it´s everywhere in the Swedish media ;)

Here is a link for all those who understand Swedish:
http://www.aftonbladet.se/sportbladet/tennis/article1830984.ab

The tournament says this is the biggest achievement since Björn Borg, John McEnroe and Jimmy Connors played there.

Other names in Stockholm Open:

David Nalbandian
Jonas Björkman
Thomas Johansson
Robin Söderling

Perhaps he just wants to get a more intimate knowledge of Swedish fangirl base ;)

Knowing his usual schedule it's surprising, I don't think that he'll miss Basel and he can't avoid Madrid. Could he fear the lost of the no1 spot at the end of the year?

If he thinks he's safe "up there" (with Nadal owning him on clay and Djokovic coming up fast on hardcourts), he's just plain stoopid (or too submerged in a fairytale to use what's left of his brain).

Why would he care so much about staying #1? :confused: He already broke the record of consecutive weeks, and the only thing he must concentrate on is to grab 3 more slams within the 5 next years... :shrug: :)
