Re: At which tournaments have you seen Roger playing live?

The first time I had the privilege of seeing Rogi live was at TMS Toronto 2002 -- singles and doubles (w Ferreira). Shame Rogi lost R1 v. Canas, the title winner that year.

TMS Toronto 2002
R1 Canas d Federer 76(10) 75 unbelievably hot humid smoggy 42C plus day...
R1 Federer/Ferreira d Safin/Kafelnikov 75 61 fun, very quick match!
QF Eagle/Stolle d Federer/Ferreira 26 76(4) 67(3) after poor Rogi heard that Peter Carter had died and was visibly upset w Wayne trying to buck him up

[Rogi was busy beating Moya in the SF of Vienna in 2002 when I was at the Sat. Qualies of Madrid02]

TMS Montreal 2003
R1 Federer d Gaudio 64 36 75 tough match that Rogi could have lost but he thanked the crowd for pulling him through!

TMS Toronto 2004
R1 Federer d Arazi 63 75 rain-soaked first round that continued over two days!

[Federer did not play TMS Montreal05 but I was there.]

R1 Federer d Mathieu 63 64 easy first round in evening match!
R2 Federer d Grosjean 63 63 even easier second round in the sun!
R3 Federer d Tursunov 63 57 60 tougher evening match!
QF Federer d Malisse 76(4) 67(5) 63 the toughest match vs. an extremely in-form Xavier -- very high quality evening match!
SF Federer d Gonzalez 61 57 63 another fairly tough match but fun Sat. evening!
F Federer d Gasquet 26 63 62 hot, sunny vs. Richou, who played well all tourney! so exciting to see Rogi win a title and watch the ceremony! Rogi just loves the "Rogers Cup"!

TMS Montreal07
to come!

Hopp Rogi! Go Gonzo! Allez Gasquet!
