Federer withdraws from tournament

Reigning champion and current world No.1 Roger Federer announced on Sunday night that he would not be playing at the 2012 BNP Paribas Masters.
"It's just too much," he said after losing a three-set final at the Swiss Indoors in his home town of Basle to Juan Martin del Potro. "I was trying to make up my mind and I had some niggles I didn't want to take a chance on. I feel very disappointed as I had one of the best weeks of my life there last year, but this is just a last-minute decision."
With the draw for the BNP Paribas Masters having already been made, the seeds cannot be reallocated. Victor Hanescu will take Federer's place as a lucky loser (the highest-ranked loser of the last round of qualifiers) and also benefit from Novak Djokovic's first-round bye. The Romanian will thus face the winner of Monday night's main match between Gilles Simon and Marcos Baghdatis.
Federer's decision also means that Novak Djokovic is guaranteed to take over the No.1 spot in the rankings and hold it until the end of the year.

If Delpo wins this - don't know how much he will have left in the tank for next week. He is not known for his fitness. But he's in great form right now.

On Novak - they said in the press he said he was still trying to get over a "bug" he caught last week. That "bug" didn't bother him in that first set!

He really had nothing to play for since he's already locked up #1 for the year.

Just think it more surfaces WERE different. They say Paris is a fast carpet with low bounce. We need more variety in the surfaces today instead of all of them getting slower and slower.

Federer must be regretting his withdrawal now. He could have won this easily.

Ladies and gentlemen, for the first time since Paris Masters 2010 (Soderling), we will have a non-top 4 player as the winner of a Masters 1000 tournament.

Of the 17 Masters 1000 tournaments since Soderling's win, Nole won 8, Roger 4, Rafa 3 and Andy 2.

The last time that none of the Top 4 players were in the QFs of a Masters was at Cincinnati 2003, when Roddick won it. He was #7.
