Re: The "Where is Roger" thread

right now i'd say he's probably snoozing off in his own bed in Bottmingen... he did say he was gonna go to Australia middle of this month to start training already for the new season...

Re: The "Where is Roger" thread

So he is going to go to Australia, then to Qatar, then back to Australia Mrs.B?

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

He wont be at the Swiss sport star of 2004 on Saturday - so I think he is already going to Australia...

That would allow him something like ten days to prepare for 2005 in Australia, even for Roger this might be a little short. Like all of you I don't know, but I don't think he will come back to Europe for Xmas! Honestly, I consider his schedule in early 2005 too overloaded, playing Doha, Kooyong and the AO in a row, but Roger has made so many right decisions this year, that I hope things will turn out fine for him again.

Re: The "Where is Roger" thread

He's by my side............

in my dream last night, too bad I have to wake up

So it is safe to assume he is in OZ already I guess Can't wait for the 2005 season to start. I am so looking forward to see if Roche will help Rogi to bring anything new to the table.

I agree with you Puschkin but Kooyong even though players treat it like a real tourney, it is only 3 matches played I think(?) so shouldn't be that taxing on Rogi.

Re: The "Where is Roger" thread

As far as I understood it, Roger is already in Australia as Tony isn't too keen into traveling any more he had to go down As for the Swiss Sports Awards - he will get up early so swiss TV can make a live conection to him .(it's almost certain that he will win again.)
Don't think he'll be back in Europe this year - that really wouldn't make any sence as the trip is just far too long for that and would use too much energy - but yes he'll go to Doha from Australia and back.
These are my to cents

Casillas_girl, did you know Iker is in a recent Spanish GQ mag -- as one of the top 60 men in Spain over the last decade?

Hopp Rogi! Go Gonzo! Allez Gasquet!

Well, if he works hard and has a 2005 like his 2004, every day will be Christmas! (for him and us!)

Re: The "Where is Roger" thread

Squirrel, i think he went to the Maldive Islands with Mirka right after Houston.

He would be making the right decision by going to Australia- I am in Switzerland now and it is freeeeeezing here! :

Mrs. B I just love your new signature All hail queen Babsi
