But I wouldn't mind Federer burning out *makes sure RogiFan isn't here!* (just kidding) ahem...just to see him hav a break and let other players play and win grand slams again!
Rafa expends a lot more energy than Rogi so the chances of him burning out, esp if he goes deep into all the tourneys he plays, are a little higher.
As far as Rogi burning out... he doesn't usually... he's quite economical in his matches and tournies [hardly plays 5-setters for one thing] and is calm on court exc for the few times he's pushed, i.e., by Juanqui and Fena at Wimby.
Nah, it's OK what you say about Rogi!
Everyone wants Rogi to lose to someone, anyone!!
If he plays well but the other guy plays better and wins, I'm fine w that -- nothing one can do. I hate when he loses cos he plays like crap, as he did vs. Rafa at RG SF... he really has to let go of this negative thing vs. Rafa when others have no probs w him [mind you, hardly anyone can beat Rafa onclay -- exc Gaston]. The biggest heartbreaker loss for me was his SF vs. Marat cos he wasn't playing badly and Marat played out of his mind, one of the best matches he's played ever... the fact that Rogi's physical let him down really hurt... poor baby!
No I also want Juanqui to win a title, any title will do... who cares what it is at this point!
So... is he playing Amersfoort at all? Trying to get a WC??
