*** ROTTERDAM 2012 *** - Vamos, Ajde, ALLEZZZZZ, HOPP Roger!!!

Hope noone minds me opening this thread right now.
For some strange kind of reason I feel that he'll indeed show up in The Netherlands coming week.

Doris and me will be there all week. And be sure we'll be cheering for Rog as loud as we can (without feeling embarrassed about myself, that is, in my case )

The draw just came out:

2012 ROTTERDAM


MAIN DRAW

[1] Roger Federer (SUI) vs Nicolas Mahut (FRA)
Mikhail Youzhny (RUS) vs Igor Kunitsyn (RUS)
[WC] Igor Sijsling (NED) vs Jarkko Nieminen (FIN)
Lukasz Kubot (POL) vs [6] Alexandr Dolgopolov (UKR)

[4] Feliciano Lopez (ESP) vs Qual.
Robin Haase (NED) vs Nikolay Davydenko (RUS)
Alex Bogomolov (RUS) vs Sergiy Stakhovsky (UKR)
Flavio Cipolla (ITA) vs [5] Richard Gasquet (FRA)

[7] Viktor Troicki (SRB) vs [WC] Thiemo De Bakker (NED)
[WC] Jesse Huta Galung (NED) vs Ivan Ljubicic (CRO)
Qual. vs Philipp Petzschner (GER)
Michael Llodra (FRA) vs [3] Juan Martin Del Potro (ARG)

[8] Marcel Granollers (ESP) vs Philipp Kohlschreiber (GER)
Qual. vs Andreas Seppi (ITA)
Qual. vs Marcos Baghdatis (CYP)
Lukas Rosol (CZE) vs [2] Tomas Berdych (CZE)


Rog's first match will be against Nico Mahut, looks like a match worth looking forward to!

Not much "bad luck" with the draw, good to see Del Potro being in Berdych's half. May they take about four hours to beat one another in the semis.

And o_O my 'future main fav' Alex Dolgopolov appears to be on Rog's side of the draw...!
Well... I'll be biting my nails should they indeed meet.

I will try and keep you all updated as much as Ze Intarwab in the hotel allows me to do so.


NB: NYCTennisfan, please sticky this thread for the upcoming week?

I really hope he shows up in Rotterdam, especially since he "only" played two matched in Davis Cup this weekend. The switch from clay to HC has me a bit worried though. Still it would be great if I actually get a chance to see Roger live in Rotterdam next week.

Allez Fed! Would be nice for him to win here I hope you two have fun and get to see him play several matches

Krajicek just announced his R1 match is on Wednesday btw

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

That will depend on Rog, more than on us.

Sort-of expected.

My thoughts had already turned to Rotterdam after Friday so thanks for starting this thread Karin. Hope you and Doris have a great time. I'll be cheering Roger on from my sitting room.

Was a little disappointed that Roger has to play Nicky Mahut so early - I've always liked the Frenchman and enjoyed his game.

Hey! I see we both have the same "next fav"

Youzhny for R2 has played great in Rotterdam in recent years but seemingly has not been able to play in Davis cup on friday : he only played doubles.

useless old guy

Re: *** ROTTERDAM 2012 *** - Vamos, Ajde, ALLEZZZZZ, HOPP Roger!!!

aw yeaaa I'm looking foward to see Rog vs Mahut and Younzhy hopefully. Seeing my fave player get buried into the ground over and over again at GM, it's always much appreciated to come here to the Fed Forum and see true Fed fans

They always think you have to win everything, it always needs to be a success story, and if it's not obviously what is the point. Maybe you have to go back and think, Why have I started playing tennis? Because I just like it. It's actually sort of a dream hobby that became somewhat of a job. Some people just don't get that ever."
