Dear fans



I am really disappointed to have to withdraw from the AIG Japan Open, starting next week. I was very much looking forward to returning to Tokyo as the defending champion and seeing all the great fans at Ariyake stadium. Unfortunately I have still not fully physically recovered from the US Open and Davis Cup. I have been working hard with my team, especially my physiotherapist, in order to make it in time for the tournament in Tokyo . I am sorry to say that at this point my body is not ready yet and I need to rest for these extra days in order to avoid the risk of serious injury.






I hope you can understand my decision and I am looking forward to making up for it in the future!




Kind regards

I have no interest in the draws, the live broadcast, the daily results and reports any more!!!

Just missing you!!

Please have a good recovery instead of holding the trophy of AIG OPEN.

See you in the Masters series Madrid!

After his semifinal at his last tournament (2002 US Open), Pete Sampras said the older you get, the more time your body needs to recover.
I'm glad Roger is working with a physiotherapist. Andre Agassi never did this and paid the price at the end. Heck,
