I got some gym works these days, maybe I feel to a certain extent what you feel. By the time I should give my tribute to Nadal, as a sportman, he pays so much effort too, though tennis is not all about this.

Roger, regular exercise, you know. Wimbledon's coming, let's see you win once more!

Roger, if you could spare the time, compare your best matches with 2007-2008's, see the difference, to me, still, I feel like, well, you get your best weapons back, but

Continúa conquistando suelos después de tantas batallas Su Majestad Roger Federer, logrando merecidos trofeos, cuando algunos susurran una retirada el más grande se dedica a seguir creciendo. Porque eso hacen los genios, sorprenden al mundo, los artistas

Roger, you are fantastic, many congratulations, your life is almost complete, and when the baby will be born. Of course you will win grand slams, to overcome a pistol Pet. Yesterday made me very happy with your victory, which was well deserved. Wimbledom
