I think his first two matches were on Lenglen last year too although I don't remember it, anyway never mind it's only R1

I don't understand the RG organizers, Simon on Chatrier and Federer on Lenglen.
It's not like it never happened before...
So what? As long as he just wins his matches!

Since RF will probably play David in R2 and he's playing together with Novak on the same day, I reckon they'll reverse the roles on Wednesday (as RF will hopefully win tomorrow).

^^ Quite probable.
BTW, I've seen several claims from the past that the SL-court is faster than PC.
So if anything it will benefit Roger.

SL has less space for maneuver as opposed to PC so that gives a slight advantage to good servers. However, it is known to be slower than PC as Roddick does not like playing there.

Okay.

Well, does Mr. Duck like playing anywhere on whatever clay court?

it's possible to intensely dislike both, trust me

My actual real worry for Federer is more about the scheduling however. As shanks mentioned, Federer was tired after Madrid which was after a six week break. Now from here to Wimbledon (the main goal), he will be playing RG, hopefully up to at least the semis, then immediately Halle (which he has to play this year) and then Wimbledon after a weeks break.

Irrespective of the above, RG will be interesting for sure this year. And as said previously, I'm actually quite optimistic about RG and SW19.
nah, RG will be predictable, esp if the balls are slower than last year... and then olympics, i don't care about it at all but since Fed clearly wants gold, i guess i'll be watching haha... hope he can pace himself well, scheduling is insane

Does never watching a RN/ND final count as "intensely dislike"?

Was a below par performance from Roger today, especially on the UE error count. On the other hand I liked the way he was striking the ball and he played a few good shots. All in all was a decent match practice for Roger.

Just 5 away now from Ivan's record of 40 consecutive first round slam wins. Roger has 35. First man to get 50 in all the slams. Ties Connors for second - who has 35 consecutive. Still chasing Connor's 34/35 QFs. (Roger has 31/32, broken up by Kuerten back in 2004.
