I'd like to be impartial, but I can't!

Not sure where to put this. Anyone seen Feds draw at Halle. Janowicz, Gulbis, Haas, and Raonic.  All before the semis.   Little tongue man

OMG.That's tough haha.Don't expect him to come through that draw.Bout time he had it tough for a change. I maybe wrong and he may well beat all of those guys and he may even end up winning the tournament but don't see it myself.
  His punishment for skipping last year? Set up for an early exit so he's fresh for the big W? Pick yer choose!

That's not Fed's draw, that's Hass' draw which his missus, Sarsh Foster, was bitching about on Twitter.

Yes  Agree , can't see Fed defending his title no way, Andys going to win it Smile  yes

I need Andy to win Wimbles. I'm fed up, I'm so angry I could actually hurt someone and I need cheering up. So, Andy my love, no pressure, but please, do it for me.

Haas, Gulbis, Baghdatis, Monfils and Raonic are all in the same QUARTER. Incredibly lopsided draw. Federer's only notable opponent before the SFs is Janowicz.

He didn't skip it last year - made the final and lost to Haas.

This business of Nadal withdrawing from Halle seems odd.  I know he will probably be fined but perhaps if they had to suffer a ban from the next tournie or something similar he would not do this.  It just seems strange to be playing a match today which has the chance of being long and tough and already pulled out of Halle.  It does not look good.  I suppose he thinks he can do what he likes!!

Not defending Nadal, but I have had a thought. Doesn't Halle start tomorrow? If so, and I'm sure it does, Nadal, I assume, could be playing on Tuesday or Wednesday, assuming their schedule is similar to Queen's. If he wins the French, which I'm assuming he thinks he will, he will have media stuff to do. That would eat into his prep time for Halle. I'd bet that is why he's pulled out. I'd bet good money that his knees have nothing to do with it, although, I still think if he fancies pulling out of Wimbles and the rest of the year it might not be a bad idea, but then I'm a nasty person.

I think he probably withdrew before the tournament started (and before the French Open ended) because the draw was being made yesterday. It's fairer to give someone else the chance of playing - and a late withdrawal would have made the draw lopsided.

And good points teejay - he wouldn't have much preparation time at all. I was always amazed how he managed to turn up at Queens year after year, even winning it one time.

Whatever the rules say, it's better to withdraw before the draw if you are able to make the decision by then.  Win or lose today, he knows he played a tough semi and is playing in the final.

I was under the impression that slams aren't compulsory, so you don't need to be pretended to be injured if you want to skip one of them.  I think these days it would be bold enough to say they just fancy skipping any big tournament, but even if injury is required to satisfy the rules, I don't think they are employing ATOS methods for deciding who is fit to work.   If you can hold a pen/racquet, then you should be working/in competition.

The problem for Halle/Queens is that they are the warm up tournaments for Wimbledon, but come straight after the FO, so top players will want to enter, but there is always a risk that a deep run at the French means that they need the rest more than they need the practice on grass.  It's a scheduling issue that should be resolved next year.

Do you know how they're going about that? Obviously Stuttgart and Hamburg are talking about changing to grass events to fill in the schedule in the extra week - will they be played before Queens/Halle, or will Queens/Halle still be right after RG?

I thought Queens/Halle were going to be in the middle week.  I realise, I may be assuming this because it's the sensible option, rather than it being a concrete fact.  As the existing and established pre-Wimbledon tournaments I think Queens and Halle should get the option of picking their week first (and IMO promoted to 500s), then Stuttgart and Hamburg can decide where they want to go.

I thought he wasn't going to play at Halle as they could not agree to the appearance fee. He was wanting a million euros to take part. Must have changed his mind (Maybe he was down to his last million) poor didums.
