Roger Federer turns down Saudi event invite

Roger Federer turns down Saudi event invite

Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic said they are evaluating their scheduled exhibition in Saudi Arabia following the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Djokovic is seeking to reclaim the top ranking from Rafael Nadal at a tournament Nadal has never won.

Saudi Arabia is under growing pressure from the worldwide community following the killing of Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi after he entered Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

"At the same time I played only nine events and got injured in two of them - both have been at Grand Slams", Nadal told ATP's official website.

Amnesty International have condemned the game which the pair were at pains to point out they committed to over a year ago - before the recent death of Khashoggi.

The exhibition is another example of Saudi Arabia's desire to grow its sporting portfolio.

"It's awful that one journalist lost his life". I know something happened very bad inside there.

"We are looking about how the situation evolves and I hope things will be clarified as soon as possible".

Donald Trump will hold another Florida rally November 3 in Pensacola
On Wednesday, Trump will campaign for Republican candidates in Fort Myers, Florida and the next day he will head to Missouri. According to the Trump campaign, Trump has headlined 70 fundraising events since the start of his administration.

"Of course I know, I'm aware of what's happening, and it's sad, of course".

"My team right now is in touch with the people in Saudi Arabia as well as Rafa's and of course we are all talking to understand the situation better", the 14-time Grand Slam champion said Sunday. I'm happy doing other things, and I didn't want to play there at that time. "Honestly, the path is very far", he said.

Roger Federer finally confirmed that he would take part in the Paris Masters after fears he could pull out again after a three year absence.

Raonic fired 23 aces as he outlasted France's Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-7 (4/7), 7-6 (7/5), 7-6 (7/5) in his opening match. "As long as I don't feel like I'm taking a chance on my health prior to London, that's the key as well".

"I feel like I've recovered well after last week". So yeah, I'll give it a go tomorrow.

He comes into the tournament off the back of victory at the Swiss Indoors where he edged past Marius Copil in Basel. On his last appearance in 2015 he was knocked out by American John Isner in the round of 16.

The 31-year-old has put himself in a position where he can leapfrog Nadal and finish the year as the top-ranked men's singles player.
