I don't expect that to happen again, and he'll be playing on his best clay surface first up too. I'm sure he'll be tested early though like he was in 2011 by Lopez and 2012 by Raonic.

Re: Roger news and articles

Coming back rested doesn't mean much for health, no, but it does mean that he'll be more capable of being sharper deeper in tournaments, which is obviously the aim in any event and especially Grand Slams.

Kyle, yes he is slowing down, but Fed is still so good. There is a reason he is #2 in the world at his age. gosh, I hate this age thingy talk. I wish I was 20 and stupid again

Re: Roger news and articles

Here's an article :

http://www.visitmonaco.com/it/AllNew...23-aprile-2013


"Although the Swiss Roger Federer (2) has not been registered so far, the organizers are confident that he'll play. "

I know the TD says that they always leave a WC for Rog in case he decides last minute. They are just getting our hopes up.


here he is in Zurich. Yesterday? Today? IDK.


It's only been like 15 days since he last played and we have to wait almost 40 more to see him

Re: Roger news and articles

I want Fed to play Basel, Paris, and WTF. I am almost certain that if he played Paris last year he would have won it.
