First tournament of the year. The Roger-Abstinence is ending.

Okay, so, my good MTFriend Roger the Dodger thought it'd be nice if I opened this thread. I know I don't have the best experiences opening threads . But I'd give it a shot.

The MTFedForum is our little piece of heaven in this whole big Forum and we are all cheering here for our Tennis King in the beautiful Australian hardcourts.

We know who the most difficults rivals are here, we know they're in a great moment, but we also know who the real King is, who won 4 AOs (Combine all the players who're gonna play next week. They all together have less Australian Open titles than Roger ).

Time to shine again, this time in Melbourne. As he did before.

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!
Take a good long stare, you know you want to.
You're not even man enough to look at my face.

Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.
Appeal moderation is always hungry for your soul and sweet emotions.


First and once godly-worhispped appeal moderator.

Yippey! High time we watched Roger swing his racket again.

Viruzzz, so glad you opened the thread mate! Your username's gonna antijinx the whole '13' thing! Just you watch!

I don't know if it's just me, being British, but every time I see Roger wearing grey shorts it makes me think of school uniform

Hoping he'll do well here, but I'm a bit concerned about the idea of not having any warm-up tournaments.

Re: ♕ 2013 Australian Open ♕ - Waiting for the main draw.

I kind of like the number 5 for AO titles. Then again I'd also like to see a small ladder of GS outside of RG with 5 AOs, 6 USOs and 7 Wimbledons .

Let's hope he starts on that in this tournament earns at least #18 by the end of the year.

Roger wants us to help him choose which shoes he will be wearing for the day session:
Quote:
Hey guys, the NIKEiD folks sent me 4 pairs of Vapor 9's for me to wear during the Australian Open. Which one should I pick? Vote for your favorite at the Nike Tennis page.




Vote on NIKE Tennis facebook page by liking the picture of the shoes you like
http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?s...6525332&type=1


I will vote for the pink/grey ones. But it looks like the blue one is winning. As if Rog doesn't wear enough blue

Re: ♕ 2013 Australian Open ♕ - Waiting for the main draw.

It would be nice to have 5+ slams at AO, USO and Wimbledon. Also to have 10 HC slams would be a nice number.

Without nadal on the picture I can see Roger winning the AO if he plays as well as last year. He could have won last year, he could've beat djokovic but that damned nadal stopped him once again.

Well no nadal this year.

I didn't say that. I said last year I felt he would have won the AO had he not played kneedal because of the level of play he showed.

Anyways in any tournament anywhere in the world if I could choose a player from the top4 for Roger to play against I would never choose nadal. Roger has a much better chance against djokovic than nadal.
