Federer questions Italian Open organisers after ticket price hike

Federer questions Italian Open organisers after ticket price hike

"I'm pumped up to play well".

Roger Federer's return to the Italian Open was scuppered by rain on Wednesday as officials were forced to cancel the day's play after waiting in vain for more than nine hours for wintery weather to clear.

Today's cancellations mean ATP and WTA players could play their second and third round matches on Thursday if the scheduling allows.

"Regardless of what happens here, I just think it's good for me to play matches at this stage".

After reaching the Madrid Open quarterfinals last week upon his return to clay after a two-year absence, Federer went to Switzerland.

"I felt like playing somewhat maybe more sea level conditions would be good for me", Federer said.

Rafael Nadal's clash with Jeremy Chardy would have followed Federer's match but the day session was finally scrapped almost eight hours after play was scheduled to begin.

Federer had initially planned to play only in Madrid before Roland Garros.

Rome - Swiss tennis star Roger Federer said he was left confused by the Italian Tennis Federation's decision to double ticket prices after it was confirmed he would play in the tournament.

They later told disappointed Wednesday ticket holders to come back for free on Thursday, before appearing to open the door for refunds to those who could not make it.

"I heard some fans clearly were not happy about it". "I just really hope it doesn't take away the fact I'm really happy to be here".

While he hasn't won in Rome, Federer has found success in Italy. It was a very close match for Sousa as the final 2 sets were both decided by tiebreakers. Federer has made the final of this tournament on 4 occasions but he has never won the title.
