WWW Madrid R2: Federer - Stepanek

Nice match to come back from a break, Let's see how sharp Roger is. Stepanek is no grinder, so hopefully it will all be wrapped up in under an hour.

Federer in 2.

Roger in 2. Will be interesting to see what kind of form Roger has after almost 2 months.

Has to be Fed in straights, hoping he's in some form again!

Re: WWW Madrid R2: Federer - Stepanek

Federer looks in great form right now i saw him in practise but who knows he could be a bit rusty.This guy looks as he is at 26 or 27. If he is enough
motivated / which is very tough when you have won everything,money,family/ Fed can play at least two years. IMO if his wife says enough is enough he will retire but right now he looks quite fit.

Re: WWW Madrid R2: Federer - Stepanek

Wouldn't be surprised at all to see Fed get broken a few times, even lose a set here, but he should get it done in 3 at most.

Re: WWW Madrid R2: Federer - Stepanek

voted Stepanek for fun but Roger would really have to be off
which is possible what with the long lay off
Stepanek will definitely be trying to be crafty out their with net plays and drop shots, hoping that Federer will be a bit out of shape from his time off
most likely Roger like 6-3 6-3 but once again I voted Stepanek because I think it would be awesome if he scraped through it in tie break like style like he did against Federer a few years back in Rome

<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Ernest Gulbis <3

------------------------ <3 Richard Gasquet <3

Rafael Nadal

Re: WWW Madrid R2: Federer - Stepanek

From everything he`s saying, Fed is raring to go again.... I expect a good match. He has been around for so long and he knows how to return after these long breaks.

Wouldn't be surprised to see a slow start before winning 6-4 6-2 or something
