(I was at the doctor this week and he gave me a sick note for the next 2 weeks. We have to wait and see how the foot will be then. Thanks for the concern
I regret a bit that I didn't talked to Tomas in Rotterdam I saw him practicing but when he left I chatted with other fans. He could have signed the cast as well It's good to see you around again by the way Love your pictures which you posted in Roger's forum
(When I travelled from Fribourg to Rotterdam I had to get out of the train in Bern. I missed a little step in the train and fall over it. I could prevent to fall down on the floor but I twisted my ankle. I immerdiately knew that something was wrong. But there was nothing I could do at that moment as I had to continue to go to Rotterdam. Karin persuaded me then to go to the hospital the next morning where they made an x-ray. I'm glad we could convince the doctors not to give me crutches. Instead I got a cast and a special shoe to be able to walk on.
I'm curious whether Roger will be able to take his current level of play into the cupcoming tournaments but the courts suit other players more than him...)
(I don't want to think about it that I might have been forced to stay there in the hospital So it was indeed the best solution to get a cast. I could choose the colour for it and decided for red. Karin then said that we should try to get Roger to sign it but I never thought that would be possible. Then we got to meet him after the SF and I asked him to sign it. He wanted to know what happened and at first I wanted to answer to him in English - because amongst the other 6 fans standing there we chatted in English - but then I said: "Oh, I can tell it to you in German." He replied something like: "Ok, in Hochdeutsch also." I didn't asked him for a picture this time but fortunately Karin finally got one with him )
Ruben Ramirez-Hidalgo is an intruiging player. A complete nobody who near the age of 30 worked himself up to be a competitive claycourter (2006-2007), beating Ferrer at RG, leading Federer 5-1 in the final set in Masters Series tournament.
His playing style is also of interest, he is the most technically pure moonballer on the tour
miles ahead of Nadal in esthetic terms, complete with a never-failing trademark grunt. A legend.
