Everyone has beaten Roger this year, no?

No seriously I quite like his group. Muzza should be the only real problem if Roger is indeed fit. And he doesn't necessarily need to win all of his matches - ending up as #2 in his group is okay. Let the games begin!

Lekha, thanks for starting the thread

Hope Roger is healthy, that's the most important thing

Difficult group for Roger to have all the players in his half who have beaten him this season. We have seen how dangerous Muzza is for Roger and although Roger has a comfortable h2h against Roddick we should never underestimate him. Beside the fact that he has beaten Roger this year (well, that was the case with several players ), we shouldn't forget that he had MP's against him 2 years ago in their encounter in Shanghai. Simon had a great season and nothing to lose in the Masters Cup. It's good that Roger has played against him, so that he knows now what to expect from him.

Good luck for the tournament Roger

There is a thread on GM where they say the final is best of 3, though I haven't heard anything about this myself so far.

I agree with everything you said, though we should hope first that Roger comes through his group

It's in the ATP Rule Book. The link can be found in that thread. And it's very, very true... alas!

I just knew Murray would be in Fed's group.

If the Fed we saw in the Basel final shows up in Shanghai then I'm not too worried. But we never know which verson is going to show up.

Who would Roger play first?

Re: ****" The "TMC Shanghai 2008" thread ****

that group

now need to stress the whole week that Rog and Muzza dont lose any matches before they meet each other or 1 of them is toast

and even worse if they play the 1st match

Fed has a losing record against everyone in that group this year alone

That's definitely the most important thing.

Yep, that group is quite difficult. But this is after all the Masters Cup where the eight best players play, so.. The thing is Roger could have sort of pulled through matches against most of them before without playing exceptionally well..Now, well, we'll just have to see
