"Would I rather practice or play matches?"
Looking at this fixture, I am going to pick Roger Federer to win this match.
"I think I was playing well in Madrid, so I just said, again, "let's come to Rome, a city I like so much as well", said Federer.
Last week in Madrid Federer reached the quarter-finals, losing to Thiem. He said the cool weather at home also convinced him to make the trip to Rome. I felt like playing maybe more sea-level conditions would be good for me.
FIT president Angelo Binaghi offered an odd explanation when asked to defend the decision, saying: "We have doubled the price of tickets for Wednesday, the day Federer will play".
Federer could come up against eight-time champion Rafael Nadal in the semi-finals in Rome, and Madrid Open victor and eighth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas in the quarter-finals.
"I'm so far away in the draw", Federer said of a possible semifinal matchup with his longtime rival. "I mean, my excitement couldn't be bigger".
Federer is a four-time runner-up at the Italian Open, which he's never won, making it one of the few significant trophies he hasn't claimed.

Roger Federer and Joao Sousa have played each other once in the past.
When he announced on Saturday that he was coming to Rome, Italian Open organizers raised prices for remaining tickets to Wednesday's session.
When questioned Federer expressed sympathy, while stopping short of a full blown condemnation: 'I heard some fans clearly were not happy about it.
"They made it (out) in a way like they rewarded the fans who bought tickets earlier, which is sort of unusual, but okay".
"I heard that the fans were not happy", Federer said.
However, Federer found the explanation hard to swallow. He won his first career title in Milan in 2001. It was a very close match for Sousa as the final 2 sets were both decided by tiebreakers.
"Always enjoyed playing in Italy".
"There would be excitement, more excitement than me coming to a practice court in Switzerland". Federer ended the hard court season very strongly as he won the Miami Masters but it seemed that the Swiss superstar was struggling on clay.
