Federer confirmed for Madrid Masters

Federer confirmed for Madrid Masters

Roger Federer will play at the Madrid Masters for the first time in three years.
The top-ranked Swiss star tore a ligament in his right foot last year, and missed the 2004 tournament due to fatigue and personal reasons.
"Roger will arrive in Madrid (next Friday)," tournament organizer Manolo Santana said Thursday. "We are very happy to count Roger in the tournament this year."
Federer's best finish at the indoor hard-court event was the semifinals in 2002 and '03.
Defending champion Rafael Nadal is also confirmed for the Oct. 14-22 event, meaning the world's two best players could meet in the final for the first time since Federer won his third straight Wimbledon title.
