Roger Federer won his fourth straight over Rafael Nadal, rolling through last weekend’s Miami Open. With this win and his new world ranking, everyone wants to see whats next. In a French publication, called “L’Equipe”, clay-court specialist Nicholas Mahut said that Federer would not play in the upcoming clay season at all. He said that Federer “would want to win” the French Open, but will withdraw because he couldn’t do so without adequate preparation. Mahut also added that that Federer will “take a rest” and play next on grass in Stuttgart in June. This article about a fellow player’s thoughts is the effect of the suspense that Federer has created with his skills this season. It is a fact that there are many different newspapers with articles about Federer’s plans and when the world will see him play again. The rhetoric that structured this article and many more was created by one man. If I were to guess, I would say that the french newspaper, which published Mahut’s opinons, surely has alot of tennis fans that also want answers from Federer. Federer’s greatness alone has created a sense of suspense for the world of tennis fans.
