Federer not to play in Gstaad for back problems?

The internet is going crazy over a rumour that has spread in the last few minutes.

The twitter account @letstalktennis1, a Swiss tennis blog, reported:

According to “Berner Zeitung” there were rumors yesterday that Roger won’t be able to play today because of his back.

All we can do is just wait and see what happens, knowing that Roger would play even on one leg, today. (He withdrew before a match only TWICE in his career -and NEVER during a match- and I don’t think he will do it again in Switzerland for his highly anticipated first round match).
But it’s not what happens today that worries me.
What worries me is Roger’s health and his serenity. I don’t think all this tension around his conditions helps him.

Let’s hope for the best,
