Halle is one of the most beautiful looking events and surroundings. You should take a look at it by going to its website. Players love Halle, even Pete loved it when he went there in his final year. Gerry Weber does a great job. He the opposite of Mattress Mac. A very hard working wealthy business man who doesn't think that putting lots of money into an event gives him the right to be an asshole.
It was more a joke that England thing, it's just around Wimbledon time it could be a bit much, so just getting there halfway through Nottingham would be good for Roger. Yes, I am very aware of Mr Weber and it's a very good tournament, though it's on grass and that's why I wouldn't go. The funny thing is that the year I had a chance to go big Marc Rosset won the event, so that was a bit sad to miss that.
Halle is the best prep for him and he enjoys it there and that's reason enough to continue playing there.
