“I am disappointed that I can’t go to the tournament in Tokyo and Shanghai, two of my favorite cities, where fans always behaved great with me. When I consulted with my staff and doctors, I decided to leave these two competitions to give my body a rest, rehabilitation and full recovery after a year of very demanding physically, “said the Swiss player.
