Quo vadis, Roger?

This is sad, Roger losing out in the first round (again!) in Toronto. I hope he'll ponder on this and work out to keep his play at an optimum level. Any suggestions, ideas, from anyone how he might improve his game? He was so brilliant in Hamburg that you'd think he can only get better...

Well I believe it's all in his head (besides that Canas must have had a great game as well...).

For me it seams, that he's no longer able to play free. He thinks to much. Tries so hard to play a great game, but the harder he tries the more UE he's making. And the more UE's he makes the less confidence he has. With no confidence it's kind of hard to play "free".

Just to bad that I don't have any clue how to break this circle.

Just hope Roger keeps trying. All of a sudden he'll play again like he used to and he won't know why, just as he doesn't know why he looses all these matches right now.

Lass den Kopf nicht hängen Roger!!
Good luck next week!!

Yeah, Daniel, where's everyone?

So, after Totonto he exits (once again!) in Cincinnati in the first round. News has it that he flew back to Switzerland, to chill out for a week, skipping DC. The break would definitely do him good...
Hope he had a good 21st birthday celebration.

Well he seams to come back slowely. But as soon as there's a bit more pressure on him, he blocks again....

....well that's how I see it. (I'm saying that without having seen his match against Max...)

But hopefully he'll be able to take out the good things from the matches he actually won!!

In every game there's pressure, and for all tennis pros there's pressure, on and off court, he just has to deal with it and handle it properly...then he's on his way. Yeah, i missed the live match too but with this rain i have an excuse to stay indoors and watch the replay on TSI.

Oh well, charge it to experience, eh? There's more tournaments coming...

Pssst Mrs. B
There might not be a replay as Roger played on a court with no TV cameras.......... otherwise SF DRS 2 would have shown his match but they appologised that they are simply not able to.....

oh, okey...

but knowing he lost perhaps it might be better not to have seen it...but i mean, a court without cameras at the USO for a Fed-Mirnyi match? Where did they put them?
tsktsk...these Amis sometimes...

Well, Roger IS bouncing back after his lousy summer...making it to the 4th round of the USO, winning the Davis Cup tie against Morocco, quarters in Moscow against Marat...let's hope Vienna will be even better. One match at a time, Rogz...i'm sure you'll win another tournament pretty soon, when no one's expecting it...

Roger is definitely out of his slump, he's the winner in Vienna and rightfully deserved it playing his brilliant game with a touch of luck, the matchball was a shot that hit the net and went to the opponent's side...

6-4, 6-1, 3-6, 6-4
