Madrid: the draw

07.05.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

The draw for the 11th edition of the Mutua Madrid Open is out. The tournament will be played on blue (!) clay and 16 out of the 20 best players in the world have confirmed their participation.
For his first tournament on clay this season, Roger is in the same half of the draw as the world No. 1 Novak Djokovic.
Our champ will play his opening match against the winner of the match between Milos Raonic (CAN, 23) and David Nalbandian (ARG, 43). In the next round he could meet Richard Gasquet (FRA, 18), before either facing David Ferrer (ESP, 6) or Nicolas Almagro (ESP, 13) in the quarters.
Roger reached the semifinals in Madrid in each of the last six years, including a victory in 2009 and two finals in 2007 and 2010.

All the best for tomorrow's match against Milos, hope you've had chance for lots of practice on the blue clay. See you're last on centre court so the conditions hopefully will favour you and cut down the huge serve from the Canadian. Will be watching and cheering for you, hope you're not too rusty!! (Although I did read that you've been practising with Levine and others). Lots and lots of love to you and the team. xx
