Re: Rogi in RG!!

When does the draw come out?

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: Rogi in RG!!

I don't know, someone said it's supposed to be out on Friday, but not sure.

I hope Rogi doesn't get too easy of a draw... cause he usually performs better with a semi-tough/tough draw.

Re: Rogi in RG!!

I hope Roger has a TOUGH draw and a lot of 5 setters
so that any win will be really rewarding .

An easy draw won't make him any better

Now I have very low expectations for RG because it is a bit of a lottery
and it seems a lot of players can win (Moya, Coria, Safin, Ferrero, Hewitt, Agassi,
Nalbandian, Roddick )

What I DO hope is that he gets to fourth round! (who can stop him after that?)

Oh yeah and one never says so much as when one doesn't know what to say, so I'm going to keep on talking: tangerine_dream very nice poster

And there goes the william hill bookmakers favourites for RG
with odds
R Federer 3.00 G Coria 3.75 J C Ferrero 6.00 C Moya 7.00 M Safin 11.00 D Nalbandian 15.00 A Roddick 17.00 A Agassi 17.00 F Gonzalez 26.00 L Hewitt 34.00 G Kuerten 34.00 G Gaudio 41.00 A Costa 41.00

Re: Rogi in RG!!

He does seem to thrive in difficult draws, but I'd rather him have a non-clay-court specialist to start off - Greg Rusedski, perhaps?

Couldn't believe the odds of 2-1, only just a bit longer than he is for Wimbledon (7-4)!

Re: Rogi in RG!!

Ginepri would be terrific in the first round, however knowing Roger he will perform better if its Mantilla

Re: Rogi in RG!!

oh really surprised about the odds

I'm ambivalent toward what kind of draw Rogi should get. Yeah, it seems like the tougher the draw and the lower expectations we have for him, the better he performs...examples are many...so interesting::scratch but that also means chances are that he will likely lose 1st or 2nd round ummm...still hope he draws some non-clay expert at least in the 1st round. Don't want him to be blocked again by the 1st round hurdle in RG

Go Rogi

Re: Rogi in RG!!

Roger can handle any draw. I don't want him to play lots of 5 setters because it will drain him eventually. I just hope Roger is ready for war.
