Re: Roger news and articles

True about the coachless issue Dirk. Though I think he also talked about mirka having too much influence, and doubting rogi had enough training during off season. As Roger said, that having come from someone who didn't even know him sounds pretty "trashy" to me.

Well anyway not like it's any big deal to Roger or any other players.

Yeah I think your right. Roger did train very well. Be great for him to win Oz and prove us all wrong. I love Roger but I would need days to pick my jaw up if Roger won Oz with his draw and without a coach. I'm glad Roger's mom is his manager. It is not wise to have your girlfriend with her hand in the cookie jar. Still I trust Roger to make the wise choices, but when pussy is on a man's mind, the odds are against it.

Tennis-Open-Hungry Federer cruises into third round

By Alastair Himmer

MELBOURNE, Jan 22 (Reuters) - A hungrier Roger Federer outclassed American qualifier Jeff Morrison 6-2 6-3 6-4 to reach the third round of the Australian Open on Thursday.

Looking sharp in the Melbourne heat, Wimbledon champion Federer wrapped up the first set with an amazing reflex volley and continued to dominate his 156th-ranked opponent, despite never fully extending himself.

"I know I can win this tournament. Before, you know, I would have been happy with the quarters or the semis," said Federer, who won his first grand slam title in London last year.

"I guess I'm more hungry...I know now what it takes to win a slam. I expect more of myself."

The stylish Swiss has been in terrific form since losing to Andre Agassi at the Kooyong warm-up event last week and demonstrated his title credentials with another sublime performance.

"The conditions suit me. My game also has been solid so far," said the 22-year-old Federer, who has yet to progress beyond the fourth round at the Open in four previous visits.

Federer, who won an ATP tour-best seven titles in 2003 following his victory at the prestigious Masters Cup, faces local wildcard Todd Reid -- ranked 146 places below him -- in the third round.

Although the Australian beat Sargis Sargsian of Armenia 6-3 6-4 4-6 6-7 6-4 in a marathon second round match, Federer predicted a shorter match at the weekend.

"He'll come out fresh against me... he's got nothing to lose," said Federer, playing his first grand slam event since splitting from Swedish coach Peter Lundgren last month.

"But they were rallying a lot. That's not going to happen against me too much."

I am glad Roger believes he can win and wants it. He has the right attitude and he can win it. GO NINJA GO SWISSSASIN!!!!!!!!!!!

Dirk, just remembered what you'd said prior to the AO! I hope it doesn't take too long to pick your jaw up Mine's on the floor too after those last 2 weeks!
