Madrid: the draw

02.05.2011 | Tennis

This week, Roger is playing the 1000-Masters in Madrid. He is in the same half of the draw as Rafael Nadal, winner of his last 34 matches on clay.

Roger, the number 3 seed, could meet Robin Söderling (ATP 5) in a possible quarter-final. Both players were the last to beat Rafael Nadal on clay - Söderling at Roland Garros in 2009 and our champ in Madrid two years ago.

As the winner of the tournament in 2006 and 2009, Roger has a bye into the second round, where he will either face Milos Raonic (ATP 27) or Feliciano Lopez (ATP 37). In the third round a duel with Spain's Fernando Verdasco (ATP 15) could be possible.

Hi, dear!
It's very tough not seeing you on the top of the ranking, but in our heart you will be always the # 1.
What we have seen it's not tennis, what is a pity!! It's a war!
The manner you play it it's another kind of tennis, it's another level of it.
When you are on court, all the people who love the beauty of the true tennis stop to watch you: it's the tennis that must be playing by the angels, in heaven!
I wish you luck in Madrid.
God bless you.
Suzana, from Brazil.
