Re: Should Roger skip clay this year?

Is it possible that Roger could drop to 3-4 in the rankings prior to Wimbledon. I guess I'd like to see him hang on to his #2 ranking as long as possible. Of course I don't want to see him risk long term health either. I hope this is the right decision in the end.

Re: Should Roger skip clay this year?

I see that Roger's playing MC.. He has a lot of points to defend, and skipping both MC and Estoril would not be the way to go, and he must be confident enough about his back to play, and that's a good thing.. but maybe it'd have been better if he'd maybe waited until Rome to play as planned, and sorted things out. Hope his decision works out the best way

It IS possible (don't ask me about the exact maths though, but I think it was posted in the 'rankings'-thread in GM a couple of days ago) - but at least it won't have ANY influence on his seeding at Wimbledon, as they do the special 'grass'-seeding over there.

And well, if he does well in MC, chances of him losing his #2 spot have become a lot less.

Bottom line, it' time for crazy desperation moves because Roger's window for winning on clay is almost shut. In fact 2009 might be the very last time he contends.

Re: Should Roger skip clay this year?

God some of us where is such a slump after Federer lost to Nadal at the Aussie Open.

He proved me wrong in so many ways and though out the whole of FO he showed me what a fighter he really is.
