From the quarterfinals on, the draw could be tough for Federer but hopefully the matches in Estoril have given him some needed match practice and he'll have a better idea of what he has to work on for the remainder of the clay season.
My thoughts exactly. And hopefully he'll have something left in the tank - there are only a few days for him to recover from the Estoril final (yes, I do count on Roger to make that final here!)...
We'll just have to wait and see. Right now I'm quite optimistic, and I've lowered my expectations - he doesn't need to reach the final in MC, as long as he doesn't drop too many points I'll be okay with that.
