Re: madrid

Federer enjoys playing indoors I think and it's good for him to play nice aggressive tennis with a lot of variety and for me it may be the best surface to watch him from a fans point of view.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Re: madrid

Apparently part of Roger's preparation for Madrid was giving Gwen Stefani a tour of the Swiss mountains.

Roger's such a hardworking player he always wants to be ready for everything : he knew Madrid was the highest capital in Europe so he just wanted to prepare his body the best he could

Re: madrid

Swiss fondue is high protein diet actually, can't be that bad for sportsmen.

Quite true. The TMC's surface was perfect for his BH last year. He has problems with the BH if the court is too fast or at least he used to in the past. It would be nice to see him do some serve and volley in Paris this year (if he plays).

Actually I think with Roger it's always a matter of height with his backhand. He hit with a lot of depth on the BH throughout the entire USO even on clay he's always played great in Hamburg where the ball doesn't bounce as high but he's never been able to do that at RG.
However I agree the MC surface is perfect for his game, in the SF and F he hit his BH as well as I've ever seen him even he was laughing with some of the shots he came up with.
As for Paris, I have tickets for the SFs so watching him serve and volley there would be a "double treat" sadly I don't think it will happen.
