^^^Doubt that. That little mark from the cyst or whatever he had earlier this year isnt there on that pic

I was wondering why no one opened the IW thread in here, guess people are worried about jinxing their man as was I!

Hope you bring Roger luck duong, GOOD LUCK FED. Its a hard draw but just try your best!
Hopp!

I always wonder about this as well considering the fact that there are still many Roger fans around on MTF. Obviously the majority prefers to post on GM - which I can't understand at all when you think about the state of the forum there. Then of course there are people who have left MTF meanwhile or just post occasionally.

Thanks for starting the thread, duong

A draw ususally always opens up so we have to wait and take round by round. Raonic is surely on a great run this season so far and will be dangerous, especially considering that Roger has never played against him so far.

But I'm pretty sure Roger won't underestimate him and Milos also might be a bit nervous having to play against Roger for the first time. Beside this Roger played in Dubai against players who can serve really well (Lopez and Del Potro). One thing is for sure though - he can't allow himself to waste as many BPs as he did against Isner a few weeks ago...

Re: *** Indian Wells 2012 *** : Roger, keep on the good work !!

Federer focused on success at Indian Wells

By Greg Heakes (AFP)

INDIAN WELLS, California — Roger Federer heads into the Indian Wells tournament riding a modest win streak and hoping to recapture the magic that saw him win three straight in the California desert from 2004-2006.

The 16-time Grand Slam winner has already clinched a pair of titles in 2012, winning the last two tournaments he has entered in Rotterdam and last week in Dubai.

"For me it has been good, my body has been taking a beating but it is holding up well," said Federer Wednesday as he prepared for his opening match in the Indian Wells men's draw which begins Thursday.

"I don't think I have over-played, but I have played enough. I have to be careful I do everything right not to get injured."

Federer clinched his fifth Dubai Open title and 72nd career ATP Tour crown Saturday with an impressive 7-5, 6-4 win over Andy Murray.

"I have been feeling really good out there and it is nice going on to the court on the big points and knowing exactly what you want to do and what you can do and what you can't do." Federer said. "If you don't play enough you forget all those things. It can be a bit of a blur."

The world No. 3 turned 30 last August and says with age comes wisdom and the realization that you can't go full speed off the court if you want to remain at the top of the rankings.

"I used to do skiing, playing tennis, squash and soccer and you are like 'I can't believe I just did that and now my knee hurts and I can't move anymore,'" adding he was a vegetarian when he was younger so has always watched what he eats.

"I did my fair share of mistakes earlier. As time goes by you don't have the same energy level so you start cutting back and getting other interests that aren't so brutal on the body. And eventually you get to the time, where I am in right now, and you just don't do any other sports except tennis.

"I have to protect my body. I just have to practise well and stay injury free. Every player goes through a phase like that where your career becomes too important to you and you don't want to get injured doing something stupid."

Last year at Indian Wells, Federer lost in the semi-finals to Novak Djokovic. He reached the final of the French Open and the semis of the US Open and the Aussie Open but injuries also took their toll as 2011 marked the first time since 2002 the Swiss star did not capture at least one Grand Slam.

The third seeded Federer is in a tricky quarter of the draw that includes a number of players who could pose a threat to him.

Federer plays the winner of Russian Dmitry Tursunov and American wild card Denis Kudla in his second-round opener.

His section of the draw includes four of the ATP's top five match win leaders this season, comprising David Ferrer (18 wins), Federer (16), Juan Martin del Potro (16) and Milos Raonic (15).

He says his win in Dubai helped boost his confidence because he didn't go into it expecting to do all that well.

"I didn't expect to win in Dubai to be quite honest," Federer said. "I had a lot on my plate with the Davis Cup and Rotterdam. Dubai has always been the type of tournament where you play really well or not play well. It can be over really quickly.

"The first couple rounds were big for me and I ended up playing a great semis and a great final and really well in difficult conditions. I came out of Dubai feeling better than I felt at the end of Rotterdam."

The attractive thing ab0out GM is the number of trolls there. Sometimes its just beyond hilarious, guess thats why most of us post on GM.
Fed forum has all the best members on MTF together, therefore lacks trolling

I've seen it's pretty bad in GM today again. I guess Fed has had the audacity of opening his mouth again?
(no I didn't read that thread. I think I can well imagine the overall trollage. )

Sure, there are trolls but also many, many haters who seem to dislike a player much more as to support their favorite one.

Someone put a comment of Roger out of context and started a thread about it. I usually try to avoid those kind of threads but I am bored currently and therefore posted in there

As long as we take GM with a pinch of salt, its fine really. Its the internet afterall. The crap people can spew online doesnt exactly have a limit to it. The best option is to laugh it away, and GM sure does give us a lot of chances to do that

Re: *** Indian Wells 2012 *** : Roger, keep on the good work !!

A semi final appearance would be great. He'd save his points and not spoil the lead he's got this year. Very much possible but I won't go beyond that.

And now that you've said it, please urge the umpire to use the time-violation prompt against Rafa if you meet in the semis.

good luck.
