Marca, the most importants sports Spanish newspaper, says:

19:07 Tenis. Federer, baja de última hora en el Masters Series de Madrid


That's all what I know rigth now. That's bad for the organization of the tournament but it is always interesting to see somebody winning whose name is not Roger.

Yes, this is a good moment for Ferrero to comeback -playing at home, none of the 4 top players in the world, defending champion...-

Go Juan Carlos!

Marca's article says the top four seeds are Henman, Agassi, Ferrero and Nalbandian.
Is that a mistake or have they bumped Safin out?

Fedex
10-15-2004, 09:05 PM
Ferrero is seeded higher than Nalbandian? :confused:

Andre or Safin please win this event I'm begging you:)

I think it's the right decision by Roger. He doesn't need to play, no reason to, so might as well save energy up. It's too bad for the tournament though.

go Andre!

Smart move by Federer. It's about time he nailed Basle.

And the door is open for Henman to slice and dice the opposition.

roisin
10-16-2004, 12:11 AM
yeah its not as if he's in desperate need of retainin his points there from last yr neways!

See you at the courthouse, you swiss cheese...! :mad: :mad:

Its too bad for the tournement, though, as most of the 'star' players are gone. Atleast they still have Agassi and Ferrero, though I doubt Ferrero will go very far.

Of course I'm disappointed, but I was merely joking, you're messing up with me if you try to make an issue out of that! :devil:

Trust me, I'm the last person who gives a fart about records and statistics, neither do I care about that "best ever" status, and obviously he's got no reason to overplay because he's like lightyears away from the others in terms of points.

I'm just disappointed he pulled out, personally I would rather see him win Madrid than Basel, if that makes me selfish - go ahead and mess up with me! :devil:

Regardless, if you had read any other posts of mine you would have known I was kidding.

take the rest and make love to your girlfriend Federer. you're perfectly entitled given how far and away you are from the rest of the field.

is the ATP gonna fine him?

Rogiman
10-16-2004, 01:22 AM
As if any fine they come up with would make any difference to him :lol:

I remember that match all to well. Well, not really the match, but. Aargh, never mind, you get the point.

On topic: Shame, shame, shame. But well, if it suits the Fed, I'm not gonna stop him! My mony would be on Andre, but judging from my Vmoney amount that means absolutely nothing. :p

It's still going on, Hewitt recently got permission from the Australian courts to continue the lawsuit:

http://www.tennis-x.com/story/2004-09-18/d.php

The South Australian Supreme Court has given Lleyton Hewitt the OK to proceed with his multi-million dollar anti-defamation and breach of contract suit against the ATP regarding the media incident at the 2002 Masters Series-Cincinnati

So did he give any reason?

MADRID (Reuters) - World number one Roger Federer will not compete in next week's Madrid Masters because of fatigue, organisers say.

"He told me he was neither mentally nor physically prepared to play after the recent months of playing and travelling," tournament director Manolo Santana said on Saturday. "We're disappointed."

Andy Roddick and Lleyton Hewitt are also absent, leaving Tim Henman as the top seed ahead of Andre Agassi and Juan Carlos Ferrero.
