Re: Rogi at Dubai

Thanks GWH for the info. Aww poor Rafa, I was hoping he can get to his second final. But he'll have his many finals and trophys soon enough.

Good luck against Jarkko Rogi! Please be careful, playing a lefty is tricky.

Re: Rogi at Dubai

Come on Rogi, you have to beat two lefties now Jarkko first and I hope it's a good match by both with Roger winning.

Then if Rogi is successful take out Feli "I am So Beautiful Yet I Don't Have A Backhand" Lopez.

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".

Re: Rogi at Dubai

Win this thing now!!!
Lopez will be tough regardless of not having a bh. He's a Serve-Volleyer who has a big serve, so that could present some problems. he needs to return well, and pass well, while staying agressive and coming to net behind his own serve.

Re: Rogi at Dubai

FEDERER: "The game was never over. I was down he deserved that first set, I thought he was the better player but I sneaked out of it. I'm really happy that for now the serve is saving me and feel much better on break points and hopefully it'll stay like this in the final."

FEDERER ON SUNDAY'S FINAL AGAINST LOPEZ (he's 2-0 lifetime against the Spaniard): "We played each other in Madrid last time and was lucky to beat him in a tough three-setter and beat him at Wimbledon that was really tough too."


HOPP, Roger! Go defend your title!!!

Re: Rogi at Dubai

Thanks for the quote Mrs. B!

good job Rogi. LOL, I am wondering if they will show up with similar clothes and accessories tomorrow? The spectator on the far back can get confused who's who

Good luck tomorrow Rogi. Another lefty, please be careful. Win your second title please!

Woooo! Roger! One more to go and it's yours!


Switzerland's Roger Federer returns a ball to Jarkko Nieminen of Finland during the semifinal match at the Dubai Open tennis Tournament in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, Saturday, March 6, 2004. Federer won 7-6, 6-2. (AP Photo/ Victor Romero)

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: Rogi at Dubai

Also, its really important for Roger to try and win ATLEAST 1 of the back-to-back TMS. He could lose his #1 spot, to Roddick or Ferrero, if he plays poorly there, or one of them wins it. Those 2 tourneys will be very important for him to perform well at, if he is to keep his #1 spot

Re: Rogi at Dubai

LOL MisterQ. Bah I want to see this match!

Hmmm, maybe one of the stat gurus here can let us know what Rogi need to do in the two TMSs to secure his #1? He's only defending first round at IW and 4th round at Nasdaq.
