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.

2-Poor Tiriac got so compromised, he's probably a nerve-wrack, send him some bunnies for the nerves. ;)

Is it really clay dyed in blue? It looks kind of a different texture, like powder. Who knows maybe with some luck it'll benefit your game I read it is faster, is it? Tell us about it. I'm curious. I would like to play on it, to see what it is like. I find it funny.

You have such beautiful legs, really there's nothing more beautiful than you in the whole universe.

3-I read an interview that you recently gave and it kind of disturbed me, part of it. I dislike the total incapacity of the press to live and enjoy the present; they keep on going about their futuristic babbling. I don't know why they keep insisting on that, they should ask you what your favorite color is or where exactly on the Caribbean where you? And it would have been more interesting. But you know they want to appear to be poignant. They just get more and more boring.

4-Simplicity is the best but they like to unnecessarily complicate everything. And disturb the audience.

It is a good patience exercise for you, anyway. You deal with them so intelligently. I really would like to comment with you some things about what you said, but I think I shouldn't.

5-And looking on the bright side you said some great things; yes you can achieve anything you set your mind on. Possibility is real and limitless and you have the capacity to get what you want, you just have to believe and keep working for it.

I guess you'll be playing on Wednesday, so all the best, have a great tournament! Enjoy!

Take care. Perfect health wishes!

I love you Roger…

Hello Roger
Welcome back. I trust that you had, and enjoyed your long break away from the 'craziness' [your words] that goes with the tennis tournaments in general.
Wishing you all of the very best for Madrid tournament and the next 2 months or so of some exciting tennis.
Kindest regards
