Karin, love your new avi. Personally, I do not care who shows up in Shanghai. Roger cannot avoid every player who threatens him, before Nalbi, it was Djoko, before Djoko it was Canas...and so on. So, BRING IT ON, and may the better player win.
Thankees. I thought it appropriate to send Rogi my virtual best wishes in the form of him having a well-deserved rest.
You are right, and of course to be a real great champion, you should be able to WIN against anyone. I don't doubt Roger can do exactly that (question is rather: WILL he?
My post was in reply to Mirkaland's who asked about Nalby's chances of appearing in Shanghai.
I hope your right. His website is very vague about Shanghai right now. I think it would be really crappy if he did pull out like in 2005. You can bet if it was being played in the USA (or London even) he wouldn't be a question mark.
Oh, no question about it at all. It's a well-known fact that Roddick doesn't like to leave the US at all - he always makes himself scarce during the European tournaments as well (with Wimbly as an exception indeed).
Still, unless I read more convincing statements on his 'injury', I expect him to turn up in Shanghai all the same.
