Federer doesn't fear Madrid's blue clay
The blue clay courts at the Madrid Masters holds no fear for former champion Roger Federer, with the confident Swiss insisting yesterday that he will be ready for any conditions when he begins play in the second round.
Federer said: “It feels a bit different than regular clay, maybe it’s the visual aspect. Matches are quite a bit different than practises. I have to wait for my match to give a proper opinion.”
