Ofcourse everyone welcomes him, but Federer in his style 😛 🙂
He just gave these lines in the interview at Rotterdam, where he is playing this week to defend the title.
And Nadal headed for Brazil Open to continue his knee testing.
“I saw a few pictures of Rafa, last week,” said Federer, who joked: “I see he’s still a left-hander – and his shirts looked good.”
“I’m happy to see him back and playing on the Tour,” said the two-time Rotterdam champion.
“He seems to have good energy. I was surprised he lost a final against a player ranked outside the top 50.
“I’m sure he got a lot of information about his game last week (in Chile). He knows now how much strain he is putting on his body and how he is dealing with it.”
It is interesting to see a FEDAL final again. or in that matter any FEDAL match. Hope it will come in near future.Roger about rafa
Meanwhile, Tsonga lost to Sijsling 7-6,4-6,6-4
“He played and served well. He was good on the big points and took his chances. That’s it,” assessed Tsonga. “I didn’t play too bad. The last game was not good, since I was broken for the first time in the match.”
Sijsling also reached the Australian Open doubles final, partnering Robin Haase to a runner-up finish (l. to Bryans).
