I'll wait and see but I am hopeful grass can rejuvenate a healthy Fed's game. I am definitely much more confident than I was in 2010 and in 2011 after seeing his first few matches at SW19.
Thanks for this, totally agree health is of the utmost importance. Didn't Fed have back pain when he lost to Berdych at Wimby. Semis at Roland Garros were terrific if he was 'holding back'. Now on to the push this summer

Re: Grass grass grass!!! 2012 Halle cheering thread

I hope Looner, you're right.
I also red an article where Roger was talking about specific traning at the beginning of RG and so because oh the phisical problem he had in Mstrid and Rome he decided to play at low % and to go up with the intensity at the end.

He did well of not having risks against Novak. In Rome I tought Roger decided to lose but during the match there is the fire and pride so he maybe tried in the 2ond set when Nole was serving for the match and Roger stretched up to the TB.
Now he hadn't to lose the 2ond set having 3 times the brak and going to serve for the match. This for me wasn't afraid of overworking. I hope it wasn't few confidence against someone who have made you very hurt and suffering in the lastest past.
I hope 1st the hip's OK and 2ond the grass gives him more confidence and he finds his best tennis over it.

Re: Grass grass grass!!! 2012 Halle cheering thread

The problem with a RF injury at this point in his career and at this point in this particular year is that the FEAR of injury is also a problem. When RF injured his back at the tail end of 2008 because he relied too much on his serve as some of his amazing movement was taken away because of mono, he did not rest, went to Shanghai and aggravated the injury. In the 2009 AO final, his serve was crap and all proper fans know the reason.

So here's hoping to see that beautiful grass game click and for him to win Halle once again. In 2010, he lost the final which I couldn't watch because of back pain again so let's see an amazing run on grass. It's going to be tough, especially with the RN confidence train from his beloved mud but he can do it. He deserves and we want to see it!

Re: Grass grass grass!!! 2012 Halle cheering thread

I saw Roger practicing about 45 minutes ago.
He had a yellow band at the head. I'm wondering about how is going to be his outfit

Maybe it's the same of RG.

As a matter of fact, I believe RG outfits usually continue into Halle/Queens.

To fellow tards like duong who are full of pessimism now from the RG defeat, I would say, hold back, lets watch how he performs at Halle. I think the surface is faster than Wimbledon and might favour his game. Except for Raonic, can't see anyone troubling him till the finals.

Raonic is too dangerous and it's worst to meet him in the best of 3 set. I think 3of 5 is better because if you're going to the TB and lose it you have more time to come back into the match.
But I'm hopefull

Raonic will be the toughest match no doubt, but also the best test and tune up for Wimbledon, really given how fast he'll serve and how good his baseline game is. IT will surely be a 3 setter or two tie-breaks; I think

BTW, when is Wogie scheduled to play his first match?

If he's to win Halle, he'll have to play 4 days straight again. I don't get these tournaments schedulers...

Re: Grass grass grass!!! 2012 Halle cheering thread

Roger's top 10 for wins on grass, (something Sampras never achieved), and has a chance to pass Sampras at Wimbly, and HEWITT, to take over number one for his generation.

Here's the current list:

Grass:

Jimmy Connors (168) - won't pass, but everyone else is reachable.
John McEnroe (119)
Boris Becker (116)
Roscoe Tanner (113)
Wally Mazur (112)
Phil Dent (108)
Mark Edmondson (105)
Lleyton Hewitt (105)
Pat Cash (104)
Roger Federer (102)

Needs 2 wins to tie Cash, 3 for Edmonson, and Hewitt. W at Halle, and W at Wimbly will put him 4th all time, just 5 wins behind Johnny Mac.

Federer - Emperor of the Slams, King of Hard, Lord of the Australian Open, Lord of Wimbledon.
