In case you are wondering where Roger Federer, Muzzah, Roddick and Mardy Fish are spending the week before Roland Garros (via rogerfederer.com):
Roger will make use of the last week left before the French Open to get the last bit of fine-tuning done. He will participate in the Guinot Mary Cohr Masters, held at the Paris Golf & Country Club in Rueil-Malmaison (20 km outside of Paris), on clay together with other players such as Andy Murray, Andy Roddick or Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. The field consists of a total of twelve top-players who were invited to the event and will compete in two teams. Roger’s only appearance is scheduled for Thursday at 1 p.m. against Germany’s Rainer Schüttler.
Despite the “masters” in the name, it’s just an exo. The player roster, via the Guinot Mary Cohr Masters website: Roger Federer, Andy Murray, Andy Roddick, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, David Ferrer, Mikhail Youzhny, Fernando Gonzalez, Stanislas Wawrinka, Michael Llodra, Rainer Schüttler, Mardy Fish and Sebastien Grosjean.
