Grass Season Thread 2009

The official schedule :

Juin :

> Gerry Weber Open (Halle) – Du 8 au 14 Juin

> Wimbledon (Londres) – 22 Juin au 6 Juillet

So he chose Halle as his only grass tournament before wimbledon. Sorry for his english fans next to the queens ().

Federer is doing Halle too every year, isn't it ?

Whatever, we have many hopes for this grass season

Re: Grass Season Thread 2009

Many thanks MacArthur for posting his grass/clay schedules. The clay season is quite packed, and I pray that he will stay healthy until the grass season.

I know I keep on harping about Jo's potential on grass. That's because this is a surface that few of the active players can dominate. Federer was king for a long time, and ironically Nadal has achieved supremacy there.

Jo has the perfect kind of game for grass: the powerful serve, sublime volley techniques, huge forehands and speed of movement. He had an impressive run to 4th round in 2007, at a time when his game was still quite erratic and inconsistent. Now that his game has improved ten-fold from his 2007 form, it's fascinating to see how far he can achieve on that surface.

Re: Grass Season Thread 2009

Quarter maybe against Tomas and semis against Roger I think it's time for somebody else than Roger to win Halle. My vote goes to Jo
