First day match for Roger, he had to adjust to the conditions but didn't make too many UEs, he just didn't go all the way on Nando because it wasn't needed TBH

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

easy, Rog just did what he had to do to win this match, nothing special, Routinerer looking good and consistent.

Roger Federer

Form is temporary, class is permanent

"The more you lose, the more they believe they can beat me. But believing is not enough, you still have to beat me" RF.

"He is capable of hitting shots which others don't even think about trying" Lendl on RF.

11 games lost against Verdasco is slightly worrying considering the level of competition that is to follow...but for now, a solid win for the 3rd favourite

If Simon manages to beat Fish (currently an underdog there) I think he'll be in form enough to beat Fed or at least give him an extremely tough one. That's an if, though.

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

Fed's day outfit . He looks like he is playing in pajama. 3/8 today. Good to see Breakpointconverterer not peaking too early. Like always, saving the best when will matter the most

I usually dont give a damn about fashion, but Fed was rocking the red bandanna + light blue t-shirt combo

I doubt Fish will be of much worry to him. Rarely has been, i dont see anything that's changed.

Well, Simon won on clay but they are 1-1 on HC, and Fish plays his best in the fall. So I definitely think he'll trouble Simon.

I think the emoticons form a perfect description of the entertainment value of this particular match. Pure one-way traffic. I'm not complaining.
Well done Rog, thanks for doing your job in straights.

Didn't see much of it as I think the Murray-Lopez match was worth a lot more of my watching time.
