What is wrong with Roger's movement?

The last few games have been very weird. He barely seems to be moving, not beig able to get his feet into position resulting in a host of errors.

I just tuned in a few minutes ago- has this been happening all match long?

Oh God, I hope nothing is wrong with Roge's feet.
We will know at the end of the tiebreak, if he asks for trainer

Re: What is wrong with Roger's movement?

Ouf! How the hell did he win that TB?

I am still not sure what is wrong with him, he is really moving gingerly, playing the really crucial points slightly better and showing more mental resolve than his opponent. But throughout this whole set it was Nalbandian playing better tennis and Roger moving gingerly.

Unless Roger's form miraculously spikes up, I still give David more than a solid chance of winning this match.

I hope his foot is better than just Okay. I really think he is trying not to do any crazy movement and hurt it more because of the match might be long.
But he is now 2 sets to love, he knows he has a chance to finish it in 3, and hopefully he does his best to take his chance when they come now. ALLEZ!!!!

Re: What is wrong with Roger's movement?

this is David's chance to show his full potential & but away the talented underachiever tag. he is palying great. Federer does seem a little irritated mostly because David is staying with him. I have to say its a little unsportsmanlike he is looking a lot at david with upset eyes

Re: What is wrong with Roger's movement?

Its such a shame to see Roger not moving the way he usually does .... this is not the "real Roger", t hough I concede that David has played very well. But you have to ask what would have happened in th e 3rd set had Roger been fully match fit. It's painful to watch (as a Rogi fan) but I do admire him for putting himself through this when he could (and perhaps should) have not played this tournament.

Frankly,
the match should be over considering the crappy umpiringin the first set, but let's hope fderer wakes up for this fifth set.

Re: What is wrong with Roger's movement?

I don't know why Roger even bothered showing up to this event, none of the top players are here, he had nothing to gain from the event. It's not as if he needs the money. A pest like Nalbandian is tough to handle on 2 legs, he is hobbling around on 1 leg against an opponent which loves to play contra-tennis. Great recipe for disaster, this will have to be a lesson to Roger: Win or Lose, next time don't put yourself through the anguish. If they are going to get you, force them to get you at 200%. This is the same opponent he thoroughly dismantled in NYC just a few months ago, need I remind you.

He probably is thinking about everything that is at stake if he loses this match (which seems the obvious result if his movement doesn't improve, even if I still think he can "come back") and worst of all to his biggest "nemesis". He's more frustrated with himself than with anything else.

Nalbandian is playing really well, he deserves to win this match, but I hope not.
