The players practiced for 12 days, with the Swiss Davis Cup captain Severin Luthi and Federer's physical trainer, Pierre Paganini, on hand to help with the planning of each practice session.
We would see Federer
already on the court, running sprints as he
finished a hard one hour conditioning session with Paganini
played on average five sets a day, this after a conditioning session with Paganini
and an hour of drilling," Bayon said.
