Roger vs Pete-NetJets Showdown March 10, '08

Hi Roger fans

I will be going to the exo Monday nite & was just wondering if anyone else from this forum will be going.
I will be meeting other Roger fans on the US post office steps on 8th Avenue behind MSG. I any of you would like to join us, we would love to meet you.
We are going to meet around 4-4:30pm since the doors open at 6pm.

I will try to post something after I get home but it will be late --I will do my best.

I know alot of you dislike the fact that Roger is involved in this so-called *match* but I believe its good for tennis . Plus, after the recent news of Roger having mono, it really doesn't sit well with a lot of fans. But it is happening all the same & I will cheer for Roger for all of you, because I know you all care for him & only want the best for him , both career wise & health wise.

cheers & GO ROGER

Laura

I hope that match gets cancelled.

Time for Roger to play against real tennis players.

I'd rather wait those extra 5 seconds seeing those boobies bounce than watching some fatass kid burn away his bigmac meal.

I don't know, call me old fashioned but I like women

Oh, Laura, have lots of fun! If I were in NYC I would certainly join you. I think it will be neat.

It would be great if you could post something. I will be watching it on TV.
Sure hope Roger feels good again and brings his ninja form to the Garden!!

I think things like this are great for tennis~~~just great.

Please cheer for me and have a terrific time!

Do you know if it is 2, or 3 sets??

Re: Roger vs Pete-NetJets Showdown March 10, '08

HI Luna , soraya, juni , suktuen & even Rogiman

Thanks for the kind words.

I will do my best to bring your good wishes with me for Roger.
I wish I knew of more fans attending but not many fans in the NY area.

Like I said I will try to post when I get home.

soraya--I think there is a livestream. I'll see if I can find the link for you.

GO ROGER

cheers

Re: Roger vs Pete-NetJets Showdown March 10, '08

Thanks P.Antonius.

Tell your friend to meet us. On the steps of the post office behind Madison Square Garden. I always like to meet *real* swiss fans!!!

Here is the article re: the live stream


Federer-Sampras match to be offered by USTA
USTA.Com To offer FREE live streaming OF FEDERER vs. Sampras

Netjets showdown ON March 10 AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN

Live Coverage of Sold-Out Match Made Available to Worldwide Audien

The USTA today announced that it will provide free live streaming video of the NetJets Showdown between Roger Federer and Pete Sampras on USTA.com. The sold-out event will take place at New York’s Madison Square Garden on Monday, March 10 and the live streaming will begin at 8:00 p.m. ET.

USTA.com, in partnership with TVUNetworks -- an online company that works to make news and sports from around the world accessible through a broadband internet connection -- will stream the Tennis Channel feed from Madison Square Garden live. Fans worldwide will have access to the streaming video on USTA.com free of charge. John McEnroe and Ted Robinson will be the lead announcers, with Justin Gimelstob conducting courtside interviews.

Following the live webcast, the full match will remain available on-demand on USTA.com for seven days. In addition, USTA.com will produce a highlights package to allow fans to view the key points of the match.

Federer and Sampras, considered the two best men’s tennis players of all-time, will face-off in front of 19,000 plus fans on March 10. While actively playing on the men’s professional tour, their paths crossed only once, at Wimbledon in 2001. This will represent Federer’s debut at Madison Square Garden and will only be the second time Sampras has played in The World’s Most Famous Arena.

The NetJets Showdown is a StarGames production in association with eight-time Grand Slam champion Ivan Lendl and Madison Square Garden. The USTA is a promotional partner of the event. The match will air live nationally on Tennis Channel and in the New York metro area on MSG Plus (formerly FOX Sports Net New York). The video will also be streamed live on TVUNetworks.com and MSG.com.

I'll try to call him to tell to meet you, I'm sure he'd be his pleasure to meet "real" American Roger fans His name is Raphael, if you meet someone introducing himself with this name you'll know it's him
