Re: Roger news and articles

I'm really excited
Also didn't expect that. didn't predict who it would be, but simply not think it actually would be our Roger

You also made me a bad fan I just voted only once. But if most of who voted for Roger voted only once, the result turns out really fair there See how good Roger is

well, you know that's my 3rd message to Rogi in the next red envelope. Guess what my 2nd one is? To nominate GWH be the next coach for Rogi because of his insightful advice on how to beat Tim , I'm suspecting that Rogi might be lurking around here

Ya, Rogi might be too sensitive and vulnerable to handle GWH

Re: Roger news and articles

Roger is still a little boy and might cry into tears when fathered by GWH

Roger, go away from him

Sorry GWH if I'm being every bit offensive

Re: Roger news and articles

Have any of you listened to Roger's latest Davis Cup Interview about the upcoming home tie with France?

Re: Roger news and articles

This is a very old article, but I enjoyed reading it. Not sure if it's been posted before, but it's just wonderful to know that the calm and cool Roger is also very emotional when the time is right...

This is right after Wimbledon:

The morning after, Roger Federer had a few regrets.

Yesterday, over an early breakfast of orange juice and newsprint at his rented house in Wimbledon, the men's champion confessed that he was a touch embarrassed about Sunday's crying game.

This sensitive young man had sunk to his knees, legs weakened by emotion, when he became the first Swiss winner of a men's Grand Slam title, just too smart for Mark Philippoussis.

Later he was bawling like a baby, the eyes scrunched up with tears. It resulted in the headline "Roger Blubberer", which at least caused him to smile while relaxing at his garden table yesterday.

"Looking back, I wonder why I did this to myself. There was a little too much emotion," he said. "There are too many tears in the papers. I wish there were a few more of me holding the trophy, but all the pictures show me crying.

"It was something that I couldn't control. It was nice to share this, that all those people knew how I felt."

He has broken down after winning previous tournaments and when he beat Pete Sampras at Wimbledon two years ago. "But I wouldn't put myself down as a softie," said Federer, who now tops the Champions Race and is at a career-high third in the entry rankings.

Although he did the junior double in 1998, the Champions' Dinner at the Savoy was his first knees-up here. He turned down an invitation then because he had been handed a wild card to his first ATP Tour event, in Gstaad, Switzerland.

And in a sweet piece of symmetry, Federer jetted home to honour commitments at the same tournament, a claycourt event that the locals call "the Wimbledon of the Alps".

"Now I'm not just a tennis player," Federer said. "I guess I'm a bit of a celebrity, too. My star sign is Leo and we like being the centre of attention. Pete Sampras is a Leo, too."

His girlfriend, Miroslava Vavrinec - a former tennis player herself - handles his publicity. He is also guided by his parents - "but in a very nice way", assures Boris Becker. They stay in the shadows, not even sitting in the players' box on Sunday.

So, asked to fluff out his celebrity profile, Federer said that he liked "having nice dinners with my friends, sitting on the beach" and he plays cricket and "ping-pong". The media guide, though, lists his hobbies as deep-sea fishing and watching American pro-wrestling.

"Oh, God," he said. "I went deep-sea fishing in South Africa once and spent seven hours being seasick. I wish they would take that out of the handbook, same as the wrestling. I used to watch that when I was younger, but not any more."

Federer is also friends with several of the FC Basle squad. Manager Christian Gross has invited the tennis player, who sees himself as a striker, to come to training. Federer, though, is scared of injury.

"I don't want to fool around and be average," Federer said. "I have to set new goals."

Re: Roger news and articles

Thanks LCeh for the article. Any article on Rogi is timeless-- just like his game!

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


ROGI BOLEH!!!!!!!!!
