Roger's draw and possible matchups...

so far (seeding wise) he could face bjorkman round 3, hewitt round 4 , and nalbandian in the quarters

maybe this will be just like houston! i certainly hope so...
i alwys think roger can win any amtch, and i expect him to play much better at the open...

Re: Roger's draw and possible matchups...

The draw seems so tough on Rogi but he's proved that he played better when nobody expected him to do so. Whatever the draw is, I still have faith in him. Let's hope he repeat TMC performance.

Maybe Sampras took over from me and now Federer will take over from Sampras - Edberg


ROGI BOLEH!!!!!!!!!

Re: Roger's draw and possible matchups...

I still can't get over the fact that he got all those guys in his quarter, less than 2% chance of that happening.

Oh well, guess Roger will have to "do a Houston", like you say, faboozadoo. At least Roddick has some likely difficult matches too....but why oh why couldn't *he* have got the Hewitt/Nalbandian/Henman trio?

yeah, I can't believe it when I first saw the draw. Possible R16 Hewitt and Nalbadian/Henman for QF? It can't get any better no ? Luckily his first couple rounds draw is looking good. LOL, after I saw the draw I also felt dejavu with when I saw Houston's draw the first time. Hopefully the result will be like Houston also

C'mon guys! Rogi has done his TMC things, he can do it again! Have faith!

Maybe Sampras took over from me and now Federer will take over from Sampras - Edberg

true, true, I am trying to be positive about this. Hopes Rogi will also have positive attitude when he saw the draw. He has done it before when we thought he was a goner for sure in TMC, he can do it again.

GO ROGI!!!!!!

Re: Roger's draw and possible matchups...

Well, I'm trying to look on the bright side too. Andy has a couple of stumbling blocks in his draw, particularly in the first round and the semis.

BTW, if Roger wins his first round match, then Andy needs to get all the way to the quarters to stay ahead of him in rankings points.

Re: Roger's draw and possible matchups...

wow...Roger , so unfortunate.

Only wish for same results as in Houston too , anyway it's best to come out as winner with difficult opponents, right?

Re: Roger's draw and possible matchups...

it is a little dissapointing his first few rounds are that easy considering he is almost a certainty of playing Hewitt in 4th round this will be similar to DC only Hewitt will not be as pumped up and not have a tennis coach next to him while Roger will not be as tired so I expect him to pull through

Re: Roger's draw and possible matchups...

How good are you with prediction WveryN? But I certainly hope you're right this time I'm getting tired of Hewitt quoting his win over Roger in DC in almost each and every one of his interview recently

Re: Roger's draw and possible matchups...

I would love to see Roger beat him(Hewitt) in Australia, but with his form I dont now how far hell go If he gets past the 4th rd. he'll either play Henman or Nalbandian. I still think Nalbandian is a tougher prospect than Hewitt.(Hits the ball much harder & has no real weaknesses). But Hey atleast Roddick got a tough draw for once 2. I could possibly see a 1st rd. upset, against Gonzalez. He hits his forehand with inhuman strength, but the key will be his serve & Return. May all the luck in the world be with Roger.

I got exactly the same feeling as you at first glance of the draw
WHY THE HELL......and AGAIN...??? The most weird thing is that he gets them all one by one en route to the semi

I talked about the possible draw last night and actually put forward this one as a JOKE...My friend also took it as a joke...Did I jinx him?? Maybe the Australian side heard me??

Hewitt in the 4th round IS a tough task. Of course, that's what happens when a top player like Lleyton drops down below where he used to be in the rankings... Roger got unlucky to get him.

Maybe Malisse will have an inspired performance and take out Hewitt first!

(8)Nalbandian VS QF
Gasquet VS QF
Sanchez VS Moodie
(31)Ferreira VS Hanescu
(22)Calleri VS C. Rochus
Canas VS QF
Sanguinetti VS Stepanek
(11)Henman VS Lisnard
(15)Hewitt VS QF
Malisse VS Kucera
Nadal VS QF
(23)Mantilla VS Ascione
(25)Bjorkman VS Sargsian
Kutsenko VS Reid
van Scheppingen VS QF
(2)Federer VS QF
