This is harsh, but there is a lot of truth in it. However, he has achieved so much, nobody can take that away from him an, so it should be a sound basis for reconsideration his way of doing things and my guess is, this is exactly what he will spend his time on during the break, I don't buy the back story.

Re: ****** Dubai Tournament Lets Hope To See Rogii Holding His 2nd Home Trophy ***

i hope he does alot of thinking about his conduct also

he needs to realize not everything is about him anymore and he needs to change his game and refocus his mind to win more GS's and not expect them on a plate now that Roddick, Hewitt, Safins have been replacted by players that he cant bully

and enough of the GS record/GOAT stuff as well, which IMO, he was starting to get carried away with

Marat at least won a GS after beating him.

It is hard to stay grounded, when you have a career like him. And modesty was never a dominant trait of character, he just hid his ambitious part well for a long time.

Sorry, I don't agree that the way he conducted himself after the final was pathetic. That's BS.

And I don't think he's in hiding licking his wounds because of what happened at AO. Look what happened at Wimbledon last year. That tournament means more to Roger than anything other. He still went on to win the US Open.

Of course we have no way of knowing if his back is really bothering him or not, but the way he 's been serving this year (especially in the AO final) I wouldn't be surprised. If he doesn't have his serve he can forget about winning anything.

Get well soon Roger

The GM thread regarding this issue proves once again the brilliance of MTF. A lot of "clever" comments from people who don't care at all about Roger, but nevertheless feel the need to write crap.
if Rogi had skipped both TMC and the exos, it w have been fine for him to play Abu Dhabi to get himself started this year

as for those clowns on GM, what do they know about Rogi anyway? only what they want to know... not reality... not many people on Rogi's side these days -- let the trolls and Fedals drop out now that TFA is ruling the tour, ho hum...

Hopp Rogi! Go Gonzo! Allez Gasquet!

I hope Roger recovers soon. Missing an MM tournament like Dubai isn't too bad. I think he'll win Miami.

Based on what? I hate when players lose and use their injures as an excuse. But if they withdraw, what's the problem?

People never get injured sitting in front of their computers, but those who have been training and playing the sport since 7, usually have some nagging chronic conditions in their 20s.

For some reason, general public like "heroes" playing through injures on cortisone shots (cutting their career short in the process)... and blame players who take a good care of themselves.

I prefer players to withdraw before the srart of a tournament. Calling for a trainer regularly and turning every press conference into a medical update is an atrocious thing to do, imo.

Supporting a player does not mean that I like eyerything he says and does, taht I have to agree with him on everything. And yes, I did find his behaviour at the victory ceremony embarassing, even if I could understand it. Call me a clown for that.

I never favoured "heroes" playing through injuries. All I wanted to say is, that I think there is more to this withdrawal than back problems. Just my interpretation of things.

Yeap, your health comes first and after reading Roger's letter on RF.com today I can only hope that this injury is short term and that he will be able to play freely again soon.

Who knows, it could be.

However, he finished last season with a back injury and he had absolutely nothing on his serve in some matches this year. So, I don't know how people can deny the possibility of him being injured/needing more rehabilitation.

Miguelito, I do see your point and I kind of agree, Roger needs to retool his attitude and get back to working hard and not expecting anything to come easily. He's no longer the boss and hasn't been so for about a good year now, so get your act together, work on intensity and suck it up as all the other great champions have. I believe he should be able to accomplish this, he's demostrated that he indeed is a hard worker in the past.

Hello all.

Do not accuse a man for no reason—

So long Marat Safin, C'mon Lleyton Hewitt,Viel gluck Tommy Haas, Bring it on Marcos Baghdatis, Gut Spielen Nicolas Kiefer, Dale Fernando Gonzalez, Dale David Nalbandian, Davai Nikolay Davydenko and Allez Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

Roger continue marvelling us the tennis mortals
