During his ABN AMRO Rotterdam presser yesterday, Roger Federer weighed in on his good friend Rafael Nadal’s recent comeback to pro tennis. Federer jokes that he was hoping Rafa would return as a right-hander, but then

“I didn’t see any match he played, I saw a few pictures,” Federer joked. “He looked good. Nice shirt. He’s still a left-hander. I was hoping he came back as a right-hander maybe, but he didn’t.”

Turning serious, Federer did say he was surprised by the loss to Horacio Zeballos. But he added that Rafa’s playing well again and that he’ll use what he learned in Chile to improve his game.

Brando Says:

Class act!

He knows better than ANYONE, seeing as he is the most successful player ever to pick up a racquet, that rafa needs time to get his game back.

He wasn’t going to be at his best immediately and as ZEBALLOS himself said:

Now is the time he is vulnerable and best to play him. In 3 months time he’ll be close to his best again.

Give rafa time!

Re Fed:

Good luck at Rotterdam. Hopng for a Fed v JMDP final!
