I remember three shoutings from Roger in today's match. There was one high voice from Roger when his shot was too long. Sometime after that, he shouted, and it sounded "Duubel", then I thought of this thread. Maybe it was, maybe it wasn't Right after this shouting, he shouted again and it was just "Ahh!!!"

Roger, Chiudi, Stan the Man, Michi, Timea, Swiss guys and girls

good luck RF!!

But I prefer when he doesn't talk at all, that's usually when he's playing better!
jtipson:

I am replying to this by way of relief from the tension of seeing Roger win 3 tiebreak sets against "potato head" (MacEnroe's nickname not mine!).Twice I heard Roger yell in triumph when making 2 winners in a crisis situation. Difficult to hear what he said but it sounded like his native Swiss-german.
By his own standards Federer was nowhere near his best.Compare his form in this final with his recent Indian Wells victory when he demolished Ljubicic 6-2;6-2. On this form potato head was justified in saying that he was confident against any player in the world with the exception of Federer. On service at least he wins more points than the world no.1 although at critical moments Roger comes up with aces of his own.
I can now relax and watch the recording of the final knowing it had a happy ending. In the girlfrien/wife stakes Ljubicic has the edge. His wife Aida is definitely prettier than Roger's girlfriend

Re: What does Roger say?

I just saw the match again- it was at 5-5 in the second set, 15-0 on the Ljubicic serve, Ljubo hits a big serve which roger cannot retrieve and Roger shouted at first what I though was "Stop It!" but then I realized it was in fact a huge roar of "Duuuubbbbaaaaaaaaalllllllllllllll"
