David and Ivan hope Roger will win the French Open

They may be competitors on court, but it is awesome to hear of the respect and how much the locker room crowd is for Roger!
And David wished Roge and hoped he'd win the slam (from the RG website)

"I had to do something. He was perfect. I hit amazing shots which got me back into the match. He wished me good luck and hoped I would win the Slam."

Ivan:
"I would love to see Roger win it. I think everybody will because it would be nice," the Croatian said referring to Federer's bid to become only the third man to hold all four grand slam titles at once.

"He is the best player probably ever in tennis and it would be nice to see him lifting the trophy here."


(Edited to add Ivan's comments)

Re: David hopes Roger will win the Slam

You can tell David is a nice guy and that he respects Roger and vice-versa.

Re: David and Ivan hope Roger will win the French Open

I think tennis expects and knowledgeable players find Roger's game more aesthetically pleasing. They prefer the diversity and variety of Roger's game. Rafael plays the game on a rather simpler level retrieving the ball and waiting for an error.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.

Re: David and Ivan hope Roger will win the French Open

And I hope David wins Wimbledon 2006 and Ivan wins the USO 2006.

Good luck, Roger.

Re: David and Ivan hope Roger will win the French Open

As if Roger doesn't have enough pressure already, these two idiots now add to the pressure by saying something like that.

Need ideas for a new signature...

That's really nice and classy of the two of them considering they're the world's #3 and #4 players...

Actually, in his interview today Roger mentioned how nice it is that the locker room guys are actually rooting for him
I think that the only pressure there is, is the History making opportunity. Not so much from family (which is present), friends, girlfriend, Roche, locker room guys, etc.

Re: David and Ivan hope Roger will win the French Open

it just means they fear Nadal more

And don't you just love it how Roger wants everyone to know what was said privately after a match?

For the record:

The simple retriever who just waits for the error had a ratio of 3.56 winners/ue today and made the "shotmaker" Ljubicic look like a muppet out there
