Federer doubtful for Masters Cup

this is horrible news,but its not 100%

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/tennis/3956873.stm


This is a big blow for me," said Federer, winner of three Grand Slam titles this season.

"I hope I can play in Houston but I don't know. I know it will be very tight, very difficult and I don't want to take too much risk."

Federer was due to play in the Swiss Indoors in his hometown Basel but suffered the injury during practice on Monday.

"It's a huge, huge disappointment for me, obviously," said Federer. "I've been to this tournament many, many times both as a player and a ballboy.

"I really thought I had a big chance to win this year."

The 23-year-old has been told by doctors to rest for 10 to 14 days, meaning he is almost certain to miss next week's Paris Masters.

Re: Federer doubtful for Masters Cup

It would be terrible! But of course he has to listen to his body first, and heal that injury 100% completely for 2005! Maybe it would safer not to play.. Rogi knows!

Re: Federer doubtful for Masters Cup

I agree. It's better to rest now if the injury is bad than have a injury riddled 2005. (like 2004 for Coria, Ferrero, Nalbandian)

Re: Federer doubtful for Masters Cup

Terrible news. I hope Roger is fit enough to play but like Billabong says maybe the injury has come at the best possible time so he can prepare for 2005. He has had such a legendary year that missing the Masters would not be so hard to take. Whatever he does will be for the best. Get better soon Rogi

Re: Federer doubtful for Masters Cup

I find it surprising some non fans of Roger actually think this is good for the Houston TMC.

Re: Federer doubtful for Masters Cup

OF course they do, Wyven... they must be so happy...

Poor Rogi, what bad timing... for an injury... he s have skipped Bangkok and played Madrid and Basel, and skipped Paris for Houston prep. Too late now... Rogi must be so disappointed.

Hopp Rogi! Go Gonzo! Allez Gasquet!

I am surprised you are surprised.....

Yeah I like your schedule better RF, but it's a done deal now so let's not regret what we can not change.

I agree with everybody else here, his health should be the utmost priority. So if he's not 100% yet, he should not attempt any comeback even if it means skipping the rest of the year. Rogi said in his website that he thinks he can be back in Paris Maybe that's before his injury was checked thoroughly.

Re: Federer doubtful for Masters Cup



How is that good for Houston?

Poor Rogi...can't comprehend the thought of only because he had won so much, it's no big deal if he misses Houston??? He had worked his butt out for this great year, if anybody, he deserves to be in Houston more than any other players in the list

Ok...it's stupid to get upset about what others think, I'm just really angry this is happening to Rogi and need to vent my anger...

Maybe it will be a blessing in disguise, he can take this "forced" leave (without having some idiots critisizing him for missing any tournaments), rest well, and come back really motivated next year.

PLEASE DO NOT BE BACK TILL YOU'RE COMPLETELY OK ROGI!!!

Re: Federer doubtful for Masters Cup

maybe the rest will do him good apart from the injury i mean,but mentally this year must have taken an awful lot out of roger winning all those titles which is fantastic but if he does miss houston he will go into 2005 kean fresh and eager.get well soon anyway roger.

Right on, lsy!~You are certainly telling it like it is!!

When I came home from work and saw some of the comments, I was angry, too. So I cleaned my kitchen...from top to bottom and boy, is it clean!
I worked my anger off. (I think).

Roger is injured. He hurts, and that is what is making me really sad.

I can't understand anyone saying it is because he played in Bancock. I can't
see that it was caused by anything he did or did not do.

It is an injury! It happens! Athletes have to deal with this all the time.

It's something we hope won't happen, yet we know it is one of the *work hazards* of what they do.

Just get well, Rogi~~that is what is important. Take care of yourself.

Allez
Roger

To me if Roger is not there competing for TMC, the 2004 master cup is simply lost it's lustre .
