Yay Roger I knew it would be tough with rust and the fact that Milos is such a tough opponent, so a win is fantastic. Onwards and upwards! So great to see him back again

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

Re: ~***Mutua Madrid Open 2012***~ Vamos Rogelio!!: R2 vs. Raonic Wednesday

I thought the match was an excellent workout for Roger considering it was his first match against an opponent who could have troubled any of the top 3 he was up against with his massive serving.

Great shot to finish too. Well done Roger. And yes - its wonderful to see him back - there is simply no one more beautiful to watch play the game (in more ways than one ).

Glad that Roger came through such a tough first match after his vacations.







My swiss friends who are in Madrid wrote to me that they need oxygen

Next opponent won't be easy either as Richard has proven that he can beat Roger on clay.

Phew that was a tough match, but good for him. Hope he gets a good ground strokes workout in his next match.

Lol I womder why he posted that photo on Facebook... maybe to show how much blue dust he didn't get on his shoes?

Re: ~***Mutua Madrid Open 2012***~ Vamos Rogelio!!: R3 vs. Gasquet

real glad Roger took this one but it's frustrating to see the younger up-and-comers facing him so early on. no more heart attack Fed

They always think you have to win everything, it always needs to be a success story, and if it's not obviously what is the point. Maybe you have to go back and think, Why have I started playing tennis? Because I just like it. It's actually sort of a dream hobby that became somewhat of a job. Some people just don't get that ever."

Looked like Becker/Edberg on clay. Fed was vintage Edberg in the second set. Beautiful tennis.

I honestly believe Raonic would've beaten every other player in the draw the way he played yesterday, so great work from Roger getting the W !

only Nadal or Djokovic could beat him imo.

I think Fed has a good chance now in this tournament, he played better than against Lopez last year and looks mentally with a lot of desire, and his draw is good now.

I can't see him defeated by Gasquet on this quick surface, Gasquet served well against Bellucci and might take him to tight sets but it will not be Rome, completely different surface : Gasquet's game is too defensive for that surface.

Next two matches will be good to get rhythm on the baseline.

What a difficult draw!
If Fed defeats Gasquet he will probably face a really motivated Ferrer.

And we all know Fed knows how to defeat Ferrer, but I think that's just the bad point, Ferrer really wants to beat Roger.
