Fed/Nadal Final in Madrid

Hoping both players can meet up for their first Indoor Final.

MMMM 2007 : 2007



FEDERER WAITS FOR NADAL
The Swiss Roger Federer admits that it is a special motivation for him to meet Nadal in the final of Mutua Madrileña Masters Madrid


Madrid, 12 october. Roger Federer awaits eagerly for a possible Mutua Madrileña Masters Madrid final versus Rafael Nadal. On the occasion of his visit to the last floor of the Mutua building, world nº1 said "it would be spectacular to play a final between the two best players in the world before the Spanish spectators, who are so enthusiastic. I really like the fact that Rafael has been able to come back to the circuit and that most of the best players arrive to Madrid.".
The Swiss player met his terracotta sculpture, made by the French Laury Dizengremel on the occasion of the Shangai Masters Cup. He also met his creator, who he described as a "great artist, and very nice". Afterwards, he accepted to be taken some pictures in one of the balconies, 240 m high.
"It's always nice arriving to defend the title. I've rested a lot after the Davis Cup, and my idea is to end the year the best way possible", considered the world nº1, who considers Serbian Novak Djokovic as a threat in the tournament. "He is really confident, and, just as Rafa, willing to take the first place of the rank away from me". "It's an honor to have Roger Federer here. I met him last year in the prize presentation, and I hope I can see him again in the final", said the Mutua Chairman, José María Ramírez Pomatta.


Lets all try not to bitch too much about the draw. Joke will be in One Semi and now that Roddick is number five he might be their in a Quarter. Possible for Nadal or Fed to have to play Roddick quarter, Joke semi and eachother in the final. The draw is what it is.

Re: Fed/Nadal Final in Madrid

That'd be pretty cool if they could actually face off, the atmosphere would be amazing but I have trouble seeing that happening with Nadal not having play for so long it's going to be really hard for him even with the help of the fans

Re: Fed/Nadal Final in Madrid

I wish Nadal was 100% healthy and playing his top game but I doubt he is going to make it to the final.

Re: Fed/Nadal Final in Madrid

I say Fed/Gasquet final with Gasquet winning a close match. Or a Gasquet/Nadal final with a thumping victory for Gasquet.

Re: Fed/Nadal Final in Madrid

The Madrid crowds are feisty. This would be special.

It would be even more special if it was best three out of five. Thanks, Mr. Disney.
