That's a long gap.

It's Roger's era, and I am lucky to witness it!

Re: Roger's 2008 schedule released

I'm glad Rogi will take a long break after USO and his busy summer incl Olympics -- he'll need one by then! So he'll be nice and fresh for Madrid and Basel!!!

Hopp Rogi! Go Gonzo! Allez Gasquet!

Isn't DC in there somewhere (assuming SUI make it that far)?

Re: Roger's 2008 schedule released

I see the arrogant prick has included the Masters Cup into his schedule already.

Re: Roger's 2008 schedule released

Well, no serious modifications (except for estoril) still very few optionnals but it's better than pulling out at the last second and pissing off fans. It's been discussed to death already but I'm glad he hasn't given up on clay adding a new tournament is a good sign his motivation is still as high, I really really hope it pays off

Re: Roger's 2008 schedule released

Where do his exos with Pete fit in ? Aren't they in march. I don't see any holes in that schedule in march.

Players who make me...
:Federer - Davydenko - FitDave - Cilic
:Safin - Monfils - Non-Slam Federer.
:Nadal - Roddick - Murray

He's playing one match with pete on March 10. I don't think that qualifies as a tournament and thus isn't on his schedule.

Looks reasonable. Assuming Roger does well in the olympics AND the USO, he'll need a vacation like air to breath.

Re: Roger's 2008 schedule released

So he has completely dropped the optional after the US Open. I wonder if this is due to the Olympics.

My thoughts exactly - I gather it's a sign that he surely hasn't yet given up on clay.

He has almost no time off after Wimbledon. It's a logical choice.
