Gstaad without Roger..... Confirmed.

I am sorry to start this thread during Roger's quest for French Open, but it has been confirmed that the tournament in Gstaad right after Wimbledon will be held without its countryman and defending champion Roger. About a month ago, media reported that he could miss Gstaad, and now it has become true. I am sad that he is missing a tournament in a home country, but I understand his decision.


The title of the article, "Gstaad definitely without Federer - Gaudio leads the entry list."


Gstaad definitiv ohne Federer - Gaudio führt Entry List an
25.05.2005 18:04

TENNIS - Das Allianz Suisse Open muss definitv auf Roger Federer verzichten. Der Baselbieter gab seinen Verzicht auf das Turnier im Saanenland bekannt. Angeführt wird die Entry List von French-Open-Champion Gaston Gaudio (Arg).

Federer, der im Vorjahr in Gstaad seinen ersten Titel in der Schweiz holte, sagte gemäss Communiqué "schweren Herzens" ab. Ausschlag gebend war letztlich die Ausrichtung der Saisonplanung auf die Verteidigung der Nummer 1 im Ranking.

Nebst dem amtierenden French-Open-Champion Gaudio dürfen sich die Zuschauer auch auf Doppel-Olympiasieger Nicolas Massu (Chile) und dessen Landsmann Fernando Gonzalez (Gold und Bronze in Athen) freuen. Ebenfalls ein Wörtchen um die Entscheidung mitreden dürften Nikolai Dawidenko (Russ), der Aufsteiger des Jahres Ivan Ljubicic (Kro) oder Sandspezialisten wie David Ferrer (Sp) oder Vorjahres-Finalist Igor Andrejew (Russ).

Das Schweizer Element wird in Gstaad nicht fehlen: Stanislas Wawrinka wird versuchen, seinen kometenhaften Aufstieg der letzten Monate fortzusetzen und bringt alle Voraussetzungen mit, in der Höhenluft zu reüssieren.

Die Entry List für das Allianz Suisse Open Gstaad (2. bis 10. Juli): 1 Gaston Gaudio (Arg/ATP 6). 2 Nikolai Dawidenko (Russ/12). 3 Ivan Ljubicic (Kro/14). 4 Radek Stepanek (Tsch/17). 5 David Ferrer (Sp/21). 6 Nicolas Massu (Chile/23). 7 Feliciano Lopez (Sp/25). 8 Fernando Gonzalez (Chile/26). 9 Jiri Novak (Tsch/27). 10 Filippo Volandri (It/34). 11 Mariano Puerta (Arg/37). 12 Igor Andrejew (Russ/38). 13 Christophe Rochus (Be/48). 14 Riccardo Mello (Br/53). 15 Fernando Verdasco (Sp/55). 16 Luis Horna (Peru/59). 17 Tomas Zib (Tsch/61). 18 Potito Starace (It/64). 19 Rainer Schüttler (De/65). 20 Davide Sanguinetti (It/66). 21 Albert Costa (Sp/72). 22 Philipp Kohlschreiber (De/73). 23 Stefan Koubek (Ö/74). -- Das Feld wird komplettiert durch 3 Wild Cards, 4 Qualifier und 2 Special Exempts.

Roger, Chiudi, Stan the Man, Michi, Timea, Swiss guys and girls

good luck RF!!

Re: Gstaad without Roger..... Confirmed.

I think that's a wise decision, especially if he defends Wimbledon, which we all know is very possible. He needs more time to rest between tournaments and after Wimbledon he also has to defend Canada AMS and the US Open.

Between Wimbledon and the US Open, will he only play Montreal and Cincinnati or does he have another hardcourt event scheduled?

Re: Gstaad without Roger..... Confirmed.

I´m very sorry for all the people,who wanted to see Roger play,there - but you can´t argue with that decision - he did the noble thing, the times before and didn´t get out, faking injurie.
If they want Roger back,they have to delay the tourny or Roger needs to start losing in early rounds at Wimbeldon - no one could opte for the later

Very true, babsi Feel sorry for the Swiss, but no one would like him to overdo his body with transferring from grass to clay in just a couple of days, that is on the basis that he goes far in Wimbledon which I believe is arguably the most important thing throughout the whole year.

I'm glad Gstaad still has a strong field.

No, Davis Cup vs Great Britain is held in September. His schedule after Wimbledon is not known yet, I think.

Despite losing Roger in the draw of Gstaad, there are still new Swiss hopes that attract Swiss audiences. Wawrinka has been showing his improvement, and he is a "must watch" guy there. I think very few people will criticize Roger's decision.

Oh thanks, I see. It will be after USO... and yeah, Wawrinka is good and young.

Re: Gstaad without Roger..... Confirmed.

I must say I am relieved to hear this. If he does well at Wimbledon he will need the time off to rest before the hardcourt season begins which is punishing on the body.

Roger is not only one that will be getting the valuable rest here.
Gstaad organizers don't need to squeeze their brains out to come up with a wacky present to present to Roger for his Wimbledon victory.

At least he won it once and may return in the future. Wise move on his part I must say.

Re: Gstaad without Roger..... Confirmed.

I think it is the best thing for Roger to take time off after Wimbledon. He has already proven that he can win consecutive tournaments on different surfaces(last year). With this break from Gstaad, Roger should have a great chance on being the first person to win four or more TMS evens in one year. He already has 3 and there are several more to go. I am a bit disappointed, I wont be able to see Roger at Gstaad, since I wanted to attend.
