It's all tied to his appearance fee being so high.

    That was a couple of years ago. Back then they couldn't agree on a contract because of money, so Federer played that year without appearance fee. After that they settled their dispute and Federer got another long-time contract (and presumably the money he asked for) that possibly outlasts his playing career.

    Unfortunately @stanwawrinka has to withdraw from #swissindoors and will end his season due to a back injury from yesterday‘s practice session: „It was a challenging year, both physically and mentally. But I‘m motivated for the new season.“

    Was a back injury what kept him out the last year or was that a different injury? I thought it was something else. What a shame either way, he's been playing so much better the last few months. Hopefully time off will help and he'll be healthy for the Aussie Open.

    He was coming back from knee surgery.

    Re: ATP M500 Wien, Basel

    Roger scraped through today. After a shaky start, he seemed to put it together and won 7 games in a row. Then things went off the rails again. Very poor first serve percentage, 6 double faults, lots of forehand errors. He was broken serving for the match, but came back immediately with a break of his own.

    As if Jack Socks singles career couldn’t get any worse, he has lost to Gulbis in 2 consecutive weeks

    He's just making everyone from Greatest Loser happy.

    Although, actually only Ponchi took him!
    Thanks for the medal Johanna!

    Re: ATP M500 Wien, Basel

    I am pretty sure today was only the second time I have seen Marius Copil play. Both times I have watched his matches, he has been absolutely spectacular. Which leaves me wondering... What stops him from playing like this more often? Does anyone know the book on him? What goes wrong for him day in and day out?
    Rest in peace, Lizbeth Rivera (1988-2018).
