Rogers conditioning has improved from last year

I find it interesting in all the interviews he's been doing lately, he hasn't been citing fatigue like he did last year. I remember in a lot of events last year, he would mention he was very tired or exhausted when he went deep into a tournament. He's also on pace to play more matches this year than last year (80). 27 (not even including the exhibition tournament).

Well, I'm more an observer than a prolific poster, I think I can be excused.

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

It was a nagging injury to the foot that he sustained in his last match. Fitness was not the issue

Yes I think fitness had a lot to do with his defeat.
