If you're going to see a Nadull match, make sure you bring a blanket and a pillow.

Re: Madrid Masters Advice?

In Madrid the best what you can see is Nadal's match. If I were you I would hope Roger won't play in day session. Who want's to see Roger anyway?

Re: Madrid Masters Advice?

I watched Roger past year, and really the crowd was supporting him against Feliciano. LOL.

Just relax and enjoy. Arrive early and have a walk by the lake, traffic is a bitch in that area. I am at 5 minutes from there now.

Nadal career prediction: 6 RG, 2 Wimbledon, 1 Australian Open, 1 US Open, 2 Master Cup, 20 Master Series, 65 titles.
(Predicted before RG 2008 when he had 3xRG)

Madrid Masters must be the worst of all. If you visit Madrid, better go to Casa Campo by night...

That would be right, is there a tournament in the world where the crowd doesn't support Federer?

Would they even go for Nadal if he played him?

Madrid 2009 Tickets

Does anyone have any information as to when the tickets for the 2009 event will go on sale?

If anyone knows, or when you do hear, could you please let me know?

Many thanks
