I've just been watching highlights from the final in Doha last year where Roger beat defending champion Nikolay Davydenko with consummate ease. It got me thinking on how Federer will start the up and coming season? This post isn't going to look at what I think will happen, but more what you think will happen so please let me know by voting in the poll and letting me know in the comments section below.
Highlights are below, how well did he strike that backhand through the match? Crazy good.

Just to get the ball rolling, I personally think he is more than capable of defending this title, but I don't think it matters too much, it's only an ATP Masters 250 tournament, so I think it should be used purely as a tuneup for Australia where I'm sure he has a good chance. Especially if luck is on his side.
