The organizers said they didn't change the surface at all. It is exactly the same surface for last year. Djokovic is the first to practice on the surface which was ready to be used only a couple of days ago. That may be the reason for the comment.

Roger didn't yet practise on that surface, cuz the stadium is far away from where he lives. Instead he practised in a stadium close to his hotel which the organizers specifically prepared for the players using exactly the same surface. BTW, nobody was allowed in there.

Looks like TFA didn't get the luck he wanted for the draw even tho Tio Toni doesn't believe in it...

Interesting. Do you know if any other players are staying at the same hotel as Roger?
Hopefully the surface will be faster once the tournament starts.

All the other players are staying in the official sponsor hotel. Only Roger is not. He is staying in a different hotel from 2005 or 2006

Interesting. I guess he wants to prepare without any distractions from anyone.

I think Roger don't want to face too many fans in the hotel.

I guess so too, Suk. But it isn't necessarily a negative thing - apparently Roger wants to prepare for this tournament undisturbed, which would be difficult if he ran into fans all the time. He obviously chose for this hotel because he thinks it will benefit his preparation. We all want him to do well here, don't we?

That arrogant bastard, can't share the same hotel as the other players. At least he doesn't rent his own house like Tiger Woods.

Good thinking! It shows how much Roger wants this...
(question? Does this count as giving him/anyone points as far as being #1, etc.)

I think this idea of staying away from fans and all other distractions shows he is planning ahead................Great! imo

I can understand him wanting to stay at a different hotel. I'm sure the players hotel is crowded with media and fans.

The surface suits Roger, he is heavy favourite to win this title. People can say what they want about him being beatable now but the truth is, of the 7 opponents he could potentially face in the TMC, he has only ONE defeat against any of them off clay in the last 18 months.

In that time he has racked up 24 wins against all of them combined. 24-1 is pretty dominant from where I'm standing.
