Federer to play the Ordina Open @ 's Hertogenbosch ?

Roger is asked to play at the Ordina Open @ 's Hertogenbosch next week by the tournament staff.


"ORDINA OPEN NODIGT FEDERER UIT"
Het Ordina Open heeft eerder deze week Roger Federer uitgenodigd. De organisatie van het Nederlandse grastoernooi bevestigde dat woensdag tegenover verscheidene media. Het evenement in Rosmalen hoopt dat de kersverse Roland Garros-kampioen een bezoek aan Nederland overweegt nu hij zich heeft afgemeld voor het toernooi in Halle.

Federer zei te vermoeid te zijn na de festiviteiten in Parijs om in actie te komen in Duitsland. Ordina Open-directeur Marcel Hunze zegt zich ter dege te realiseren dat de kans dat Federer komt, slechts een paar procent is.

" ORDINA OPEN INVITES ROGER FEDERER "
The Ordina Open has invited Roger Federer earlier this week. The organization of the Dutch Grasscourt tournament confirmed this news in various media on wednesday. The event in Rosmalen hopes the newly crowned Roland Garros champion considers a visit to the Netherlands now that he didn't play the warm up tournament Halle.

Federer said he was mentally drained after the festivities in Paris and therefore didn't play at Halle. Ordina Open director Marcel Hunze says the chance Federer will play at the Tournament is realistic but small.




Should he get some warm up tournament here with no big names, but have his warm up tournament?

Re: Federer to play the Ordina Open @ 's Hertogenbosch ?

I think Eastbourne should ask for him as they've lost Gasquet from their field and will probably lose the other two best seeded players Monfils and Stepanek

For the ATP points, it would be good as Federer has planned to play only one ATP250 tournament in the year (Doha).

Then he would get all the points.

It depends what kind of training he prefers : in competition or not.

And is Rosmalen's grass safe for the feet ?

Make Fed play qualies in Rosmalen.

He gets some grass practice and JM stop whining both Halle and Rosmalen are the same points.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Federer to play the Ordina Open @ 's Hertogenbosch ?

Why doesn't Del Potro play there by the way ?

He was semi-finalist last year and this year he has not planned any preparation tournament, I think

Re: Federer to play the Ordina Open @ 's Hertogenbosch ?

Verdasco is the top seed at the Ordina Open.
1 WC is still available so maybe it's possible to clinch Federer.

You're right sorry. Actually it was Ferrer and Robredo playing @ 's Hertogenbosch.
Monfils is likely to pull out of Eastbourne too though with a wrist injury.

Re: Federer to play the Ordina Open @ 's Hertogenbosch ?

I heard about this last night, and considering I live in the Netherlands, I'd love for him to come here. If he, for some reason, doesn't think it's a good idea, though... then yeah, end of story.

The chances of him actually coming here are tiny, anyway.

Ja, lijkt me wel prachtig om Feddie weer eens te zien hier.
Ga je er dan heen?

WTF?

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

Ferrer to defend his crown. It would surprise me to see Federer play s'Heruiwbaiuwbfurbfrbosch.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).
