I very much doubt it - not with all the matches being 5 sets in a Grand Slam. He wouldn't want to risk tiring himself out, if he hopes to go a long way in the Singles. I may be wrong of course, but I do very much doubt it. Can't imagine Federer, Nadal or Murray playing doubles either

You can be right but i think doubles are helping him coming to the net more

Normally they do, yes. Although I haven't read anything about it this year though, but I guess you better check the website on Friday.

Re: Expect The Unexpected Roland Garros 09

I expect that it will fight to the blood and so win this tournament and beat Nadal in finale.

Re: Expect The Unexpected Roland Garros 09

Ana and Rafa are doing the draw this year. Let's hope Ana draws Nole in Fed's half and hence gives him the best possible birthday present

Re: Expect The Unexpected Roland Garros 09

So, Roland Garros 09 is upon us...

I wanted to write something about Madrid match but couldn't, it was so emotional, was completely drained after so I can only imagine how Novak felt...There are some matches that define you, as a person and as a player.Madrid SF might be one for Novak and I am certain that he will bounce back even stronger.

I red something about Sampras and how, after becoming youngest ever USO champion in 1990 with 19 yrs he couldn't figure out him self in next few years.He lost in QF from Courier next year and said after that he was not disappointed felt relieved that the pressure to defend his title was no longer on him. This led to widespread criticism, which included disparaging remarks from Courier and Jimmy Connors.Yesterday Federers remark on Novak-Rafa semi was that "he did what Novak failed to do day before" , or something in that line, and I am sure that Novak will respond to this, on court when they meet again.
Back to Sampras, next year he lost USO final from Edberg and he said after that was turning point in his career, "the wake-up call" , that loss.It pushed him to think about himself, to work harder, to improve him self physically and as a player and to make himself #1.

I am sure Novak will look at this match as his turning point and take positives from it.Physically he was there, after playing for 3 straight weeks he didn't looked exhausted or tired even after grueling 4 hours against Nadal on clay.That's strong evidence that his fitness is coming along finaly.He had tough year behind him, with his family issues and younger brothers being sick for months (he mentioned that in his interview on RTS) and he bounced back and found his game again and, at least for me, he looks like a better player than he was last year in AO and that's very encouraging.He must keep this intensity and push him self a bit more and we will see some good things in coming months.Maybe even in this upcoming RG.
Keep your head up Novak and everything will be fine.
