Fed gets some bonus if he plays doesn't he?
I doubt he'll win anyway... 3 weeks isn't like him.
Remember what happened last year when he decided to withdraw from Paris? Basically everyone was whining and bitching about it. Imagine he would do it again...Not sure why Roger is going to play in Paris?
The only reason that can be making sense to me..... trying to add points to protect his no.1 entry ranking for year 2008!
Still... my opinion.... should not be overplayed when it's unnecessary!
yep, he will get 1,5 Mio. $ Bonus
He should play because Paris-Bercy is the only Masters Series event where he wasn't in the final (he hasn't reached even semifinal there!). The draw looks like a "nightmare" but it's only a theory. Karlovic can lose to Verdasco, Nalbandian can do it the same against Moya, etc.In Basel he announced that he is going to play, but it seems that he has quite a nightmare draw. First Karlovic, then Nalbandian, Berdych/Ferrer, Djokovic/Murray till the final. All hot and in form players. If you look at the seeds Federer's Half seems much tougher than Nadal's. And Federer had no rest. Wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't get that far.
