Rogi at the USO 2004

Decided to start this thread myself... so anything USO-related and Rogi-related can go here, including piccies, if you like!!

So let it begin!

Rogi should be there next week some time getting over his jetlag.

Hopp Rogi! Go Gonzo! Allez Gasquet!

That is a very smart thing for Rogi to do. He needs as much preparation for the USO, as he can get. Best of luck Rogi!! WE ALL LOVE YOU!

Re: Rogi at the USO 2004

I found this on Roger's site.

Imo, it's


" I just read something that could be interesting (from w w w.itcantbetrue.joke).

"ATP hires psychologists to help tennis players who struggle with personal problems. New clinics are already open near Flushing Meadows, 24/7. It will be absolutely free for all players actually in the top 50 who've suffered a least 7 losses since the beginning of the year. They will receive 20 vouchers, each voucher good for a one hour therapy session. All the players are very happy with this new measure and thank the ATP for caring so much about the well-being of their top ranked tennis players, said Rainer Schuettler.

A lot of players not in action anymore in Athens have already booked their first appointment. Among them are Andy Roddick, Tim Henman, Juan Carlos Ferrero. Andre Agassi and Leyton Hewitt said to our reporter that they booked too their first appointment and they'll arrive in New York as soon they lost at the Legg Mason Tennis Classic, eager to talk about their personal problems . Unfortunately, Roger Federer couldn't qualify for this special measure and said : "It's a pity I couldn't make the cut, you know. Having known I would have lost one more tournament. You know, I really need that help provided by the ATP to solve some problemes I have with some teenagers...namely Nadal, Berdych, Edelweiss, ... " Roger Federer suffered terrible defeats this year against those 3 young tennis players we must remember.

Marat Safin, not able to find a psychologist who wanted to work with him, kindly offers his 20 vouchers to Roger Federer.

The ATP is expected to extend this measure to all the players and in 2005, all the ATP players are supposed to win all their matches."

Re: Rogi at the USO 2004



Edelweiss is Roger's calf, obviously the journalist doesn't know that and included her as a tennis player.

I can't tell if Roger is being sarcastic or not...

EDIT: I think this was written by Dana. She is just too good, fooled me again.

Re: Rogi at the USO 2004

at the article

I think as far as the USO is concerned, Rogi just needs to relax and try and "feel" his tennis more. By that I mean, have it come naturally to him rather than artificially force it as he did during the Olympics.

I remember in the Hamburg final v Coria he started so horribly and then John Barret said- "It all starts in the mind- he needs to remove the mental shackles and release the talent"- and that is exactly what he did. He worked his way into the match, "released the talent" and played sublimely for the remainder of the match and blew Coria (on CLAY!!!) off the court.

If he gets a not too difficult draw for the first couple of rounds, gets a few good matches under his belt I can definitely see him releasing the talent again and propelling himself to greater heights in the second week.

In that regard, he is a lot like Sampras used to be. Vulnerable in the first few matches, but from the quarters onwards, in a zone, tearing past his opponents. Have faith my fellow Rogi fans

Re: Rogi at the USO 2004

Oh yes you are right Ron. I think Rogi was forcing alot of his tennis this week because mentality and physically he was weary. Say he did win against Thomas, Rogi would have likely lost to Tommy the next day. He was running on empty and it wouldn't have gotten any easier. This event was just in the wrong time of the year for Rogi in 04. He has won 8 events this year and 4 events in a row going from different surface. He needed a bigger break after Gstaad but he was charged up enough to play through a tough draw at Toronto and win like an amazing champion which he is. He just needs time to rest up and get his mind and body well again. I'm not sure about his Open although having every other day off will help him a lot but I do think after his Open break Rogi will do great on indoors.

"It all starts in the mind- he needs to remove the mental shackles and release the talent"

That's what I love to see in Rogi -- he also did that in the Wimby final. I'd prefer to see Rogi lose the first set and win the match rather than win the first set and lose the match!

Release that beautiful talent, Rogi!! It w be nice to see him play his top tennis again.

Hopp Rogi! Go Gonzo! Allez Gasquet!

Re: Rogi at the USO 2004

I'm glad that all the pressure must be now on Andy's side in this USO esp after the relatively poor summer season for him. I really don't think Roger wants it as much as Andy or himself Wimby or Olympics, so maybe he will bring us some more surprise like he always did.

I agree with you all that Roger maybe will struggle through first few rounds, but once he goes all through and gets in the groove and regain his confidence, he will realize his talent once again and probably at the most counted moments. Yeah I have my faith. I want Roger to win it all, frankly. Yeah, I think I'm being a little greedy

Way to go Roger in this USO! Get off the pressure and go there freely, and above all, take care of your body and mind. You know we are all by you for sure whatever the results
