ROFE i hope you bring Roger the good luck

ROGER FEDERER

the recipe is simple yet but extremely rare:buckets of athletic ability coupled with gallons of mental tenacity are the core ingredients that produce a Tiger Woods,a Michael Jordan...a Roger Federer


roger is the best

Just what the doctor ordered, some easier matches and time out on court. Giving there are no late withdrawals, his first final should come here, and Davydenko (maybe not, he does slip up in smaller tounreys) in the final.

Do some damage on the red dirt

.Roger Federer.

Maybe a Volandri rematch? Or time to finally get a win against Hrbaty?

The tournament looks like an excellent opportunity to start into the clay court season.

What about the rumour that Djokovic asked for a wildcard for Estoril by the way?

There's a thread in GM where Djokovic says he's going to rest until Monte Carlo, so apparently no WC for Djokovic.

Exhausted from signing his coffee table book I suspect.

Nah, serious: I think Djoko actually wants to keep a healthy schedule for this year, concentrating on the Masters and GSs, to prevent a premature burn-out like he had last year, so he cut down the smaller tournaments. That's not a bad decision I'd think.
In all, I get the impression that the whole Djoko-to-appear-at-Estoril was never more than a rumour.

Thanks for the info I avoid Djokovic' threads on GM these days

A bit strange that he decided not to defend his title there, but on the other hand he knows what is best for him and his body. The season is long and greater challenges as Estoril await for him

davydenko is going to be tough for federer esp when federer's movement being really terrible.

federer could play great defense in the past and force errors from davydenko going for too much. Now he cant do that.

Fed is going to win. MARK MY WORDS.

Denko is going to give the match to Fed since Fed defended him in the betting scandal.

Good one!

PS right now Roddick is having a handful at defeating Denko... TB.
