Well -not surprisingly - there are lots of Roger parts
At one stage they show him working with a German TV crew that are filming a programme about him - he shows them round the very sumptuous "suite" he uses as a locker room, and he says he enjoys participating in this kind of programme.They also show him meeting a group of Swiss fans who won a competition to go to Houston and to meet him. Then they interview Mirka about her role in Roger's business life - how she aranges his practice courts, books his flights etc, and they show her playing tennis with an Australian guy who works for the ATP. Oh - yes - and they show Roger having lunch with George Bush Snr on the day he arrived in Houston. He comes over as super cool and very relaxed, but still a genuinely nice guy - he doesn't appear conceited or big headed at all - he says that he is surprised that he is still unbeaten after two years playing in Houston. After the famous tie break against Marat, they ask him if winning such a hard match is more satisfying and enjoyable than an easy win - he just laughs and says he prefers the easy wins!!!
As far as Marat goes - well typical Marat joking about really! They show him having a massage at one point, and practicing with all these young girls slavering over him! He winks at the camera a lot - appears very relaxed and like he is having fun
There are quite a few shots of him with Peter Lundgren. When the credits run at the end, they show all the players holding up white cards with the credits written on them - you know "produced by.....", "directed by......." etc. Most of them look a little embarrassed, but Marat is loving every minute of it - and most of the women here would love it too because he is stark naked with only the white card protecting his modesty
I guess that wouldn't interest you Dirk- but I quite enjoyed it
They don't show so much tennis footage as they did last year - it is mostly behind-the-scenes stuff, but still quite enjoyable. There are some nice interviews with Tim Henman too and some cute shots of Gaston without his shirt!!! Hope that helped -and btw - if you want to post the Roger bit in his Forum-please feel free
If I think of anything else I will add it.
