I think Federer's match should be on when coverage begins right? For EST it's 8 am, so that would be 2pm there. Is that when Rogi's match starts?

Shadow

Good Luck :)

MARAT SAFIN
Roger Federer
Mary Pierce
Ai Sugiyama
Svetlana Kuznetsova
David Nalbandian
Patty Schnyder

RogiFan88
05-26-2004, 10:10 PM
I w say Rogi's match will start any time after 12noon Paris time, depending on how long Cappy goes, which could be long.

ALLEZ, Rogi, Juanqui, Maratski!

I don't know how late our coverage goes tomorrow... not very long!

Neely
05-27-2004, 09:38 AM
that's not a bad result for Lee so far
he played quite well last year on hardcourt, but this year, he had almost completely disappeared so far

dubis016
05-27-2004, 09:42 AM
Yea, i guess so when he made it in the draw as LL...
but you know, as one of few korean fan's of Lee, I expected more from him,
especially after win at sydney..probably crack in the top 30, win more titles, if possible one masters! That's going to far..
Still, I didn't lose my passion for Lee! come on Lee! fight!

dubis016

Kiefer vs Federer now live on TV

let's goooo Kiwi :)

Neely
05-27-2004, 10:45 AM
Federer can't excuse or raise his hand when he has a lucky letcord that drops unreachably into Kiefer's field, can he? :banghead:

Raquel
05-27-2004, 10:46 AM
Good Luck Roger :)

Come on Lleyton :bounce:

Dirk
05-27-2004, 10:47 AM
This match should be fun, give lots of details Neely.

Neely
05-27-2004, 10:49 AM
that's too bad what Kiefer played on break point :mad:
double fault Roger for another break point
Roger saved it with a winner exactly on the baseline

dubis016
05-27-2004, 10:49 AM
Lee 2:3 *Patience, on serve...come on Lee, time to break!!
Other scores: Lopez about to make it set all against Kucera,

Roger is struggling with his serve. Come on now don't hex yourself about this court Roger.

David Kenzie
05-27-2004, 10:52 AM
fererer 2-0

http://www.rolandgarros.com/images/netcam/large/chatrier/025.jpg

this looks like a foot fault to me

Neely
05-27-2004, 10:54 AM
both players still looking to adjust their shots, many shots from Kiefer out just a little bit and the same with Roger

Dirk
05-27-2004, 10:54 AM
Ok Roge time to get into your groove, let's get the motion going.

dubis016
05-27-2004, 10:55 AM
Lee* 4:3 Patience. Finally, Lee broke!! Finish him now!

Dirk
05-27-2004, 10:55 AM
Looks sunny out.

Neely
05-27-2004, 10:58 AM
there is not much you can do when Federer's serve is in
0-30 and then four first serves in a row, no chance

Neely
05-27-2004, 11:01 AM
Kiefer has always bad luck with the letcord, unbelievable :mad:

dubis016
05-27-2004, 11:03 AM
Game Set Match Lee!!! 64 64 63 What a perfect win!!
He now plays either lopez or kucera..win next round and play federer!
VAMOS LEE!!

dubis016
05-27-2004, 11:04 AM
O, we don't know if he is going to play federer..he is now playing kiefer;;
don't get offended by that, Neely. I'm not saying Kiefer has no chance..you know!^^

Neely
05-27-2004, 11:05 AM
if Kiefer can't get out his games it's a thing of nature that Federer breaks

Neely
05-27-2004, 11:06 AM
don't get offended by that, Neely. I'm not saying Kiefer has no chance..you know!^^
no problem, I know myself that Federer should win this match easily ;)

Raquel
05-27-2004, 11:06 AM
Roger 4-1 :bounce:

Come on Lleyton and Albert :)

Dirk
05-27-2004, 11:07 AM
*4-1 Roger. He is still struggling with his serve. I'm sure it will get better, but he needs to cut the doubles out. Still he has two breaks so I can't complain.

Tricky_Forehand
05-27-2004, 11:07 AM
Nicolas may be down 2 breaks but at least he looks to be fighting Roger off as much as he can

Dirk
05-27-2004, 11:11 AM
Come on Roger stop this double faulting. He has 5 already. Duece.

Neely
05-27-2004, 11:11 AM
Nicolas may be down 2 breaks but at least he looks to be fighting Roger off as much as he can
Kiefer is fighting hard

OMG, what a return, he is really good in this match, too bad his is playing against Roger so early

Dirk
05-27-2004, 11:12 AM
Roger is clearly spooked by this court. He needs to really raise his game. His 1st % is terrible.

Neely
05-27-2004, 11:12 AM
UNBELIEVABLE KIEFER

he fought and got an AWESOME passing shot down the line!!!!!!

kfh_9118
05-27-2004, 11:13 AM
Fight Kiefer :bounce: :fiery:

Dirk
05-27-2004, 11:14 AM
4-2. Roger not good, need to stop being so damn spooked.

Neely
05-27-2004, 11:14 AM
THAT'S AWESOME how Kiefer earned breakpoint with that passing shot and then he fooled Roger again with a dropshot and then a lob exactly on the line
rebreak Kiwi :)

tschaeggy
05-27-2004, 11:14 AM
o o, come on rogi!! not another break from kiefer please!! :worship:

kfh_9118
05-27-2004, 11:15 AM
Kiefer got 1 break back :bounce:

Please update us with how Kiwi's playing, Neely :wavey:

Thanks

Too bad I don't have the match on TV :mad: :sad:

Neely
05-27-2004, 11:16 AM
Roger gets lucky again with a shot that bounces unreachable over Kiefer's racket

tschaeggy
05-27-2004, 11:16 AM
kiefer also plays excellent tennis!

Dirk
05-27-2004, 11:17 AM
bp Rogi. Come Roger and this time serve at a good level.

WyveN
05-27-2004, 11:18 AM
rogers serving stats are pretty terrible, they should pick up soon........hurry up and win hewitt so that i can get coverage

tschaeggy
05-27-2004, 11:18 AM
its gonna get me nervous................

Dirk
05-27-2004, 11:18 AM
Roger time to get that high serve % now.

kfh_9118
05-27-2004, 11:18 AM
Kiwi saved break point, now 3-4 :bounce:

Break once more, Nico :bounce:

Tricky_Forehand
05-27-2004, 11:19 AM
xavier was up 3-0 :banghead:

christophe is doing much better but still lost serve when serving for the 2nd at 5-3 :sad: :sad:

c'mon Nicolas!

Neely
05-27-2004, 11:20 AM
Kiefer holds serve
*4-3 Kiefer

I'm really very pleased with the level Kiefer is playing at the moment, every game went over deuce so far (except one?) and Roger is just a few points better

but I doubt Kiefer can hold this level, Roger will improve more and more like against Coria in Hamburg

WyveN
05-27-2004, 11:20 AM
Roger badly needs to win a set on this court :lol:

Hold serve!

tschaeggy
05-27-2004, 11:22 AM
come on rogi, its time for a break!!

Tricky_Forehand
05-27-2004, 11:23 AM
I admire your belief in Nicolas, Neely ;)

I'm proud of him for continuing to fight! I'm not making Roger the winner till the last point. He's not unbeatable.

WyveN
05-27-2004, 11:26 AM
argh.......melzer won the third set........this match is going to go on forever

Neely
05-27-2004, 11:26 AM
Federer increased his level and finished the 1st set 6-3

asotgod
05-27-2004, 11:26 AM
6-3 for Federer. The jinx should be broken now.

shaoyu
05-27-2004, 11:26 AM
Rogi 6-3

05-27-2004, 11:26 AM

Hi everyone here!

yeah...finally Rogi won a set in the center court :)

Keep going Rogi!

lsy
05-27-2004, 11:28 AM
argh.......melzer won the third set........this match is going to go on forever

Is the 1st time you ever cheer for Hewitt? ;)

Tricky_Forehand
05-27-2004, 11:28 AM
Jurgen :bounce:

Nicolas :sad: Going by the stats he stll played a decent 1st set. Just wasn't winning enough on his 1st serve :sad:

Raquel
05-27-2004, 11:28 AM
Roger :worship: Well played as always :)

Melzer has won the 3rd :( Fight Lleyt :bounce:

Albert Costa d. Christophe Rochus 6-1, 6-2, 7-5 :woohoo: Albert quietly making his way through the rounds. Good Luck Albert :yeah:

Sjengster
05-27-2004, 11:29 AM
Diabolical serving from Federer, he's winning 93% of first serve points but when you only get 42% first serves in that rather negates the impact. But I knew Kiefer would be a stern test, he doesn't lead the head to head for nothing.

Dirk
05-27-2004, 11:29 AM
6-3. Go ROGI!!!!!!!! http://smilies.jeeptalk.org/otn/blobs/multi.gif Now you must pass the big test, holding serve in the opener.

Tricky_Forehand
05-27-2004, 11:30 AM
Christophe :sad: :sad: :sad:

Xavier :D :D

PennyThePenguin
05-27-2004, 11:31 AM
2 Asians through to the next round today!!!! :woohoo: :woohoo: yay!!!! go Hyung-Taik!!! go Shinobu!!!!

argh....lleyton, jurgen...hurry up and finish already!

Neely
05-27-2004, 11:31 AM
Federer will be unbreakable when he gets his serve going
only thing Kiefer can do is holding some of his own service games :sad:

WyveN
05-27-2004, 11:31 AM
Is the 1st time you ever cheer for Hewitt? ;)

I would love to see Melzer win this match but it would have to be in 5 and I would miss the majority of the Roger match.........tough choice ;)

Well done Roger, the set losing streak is over

Neely
05-27-2004, 11:32 AM
oh, Federer missed big chance at the net with a high forehand shot, instead of 30-15 now 40-0

Kiwi holds to love :)

PennyThePenguin
05-27-2004, 11:33 AM
i thought melzer had a good chance back in the first set...then he disappointed me by dropping the set from a break up...grrrr...

Tricky_Forehand
05-27-2004, 11:34 AM
Robby/Mark lost a tough 3rd set to Julian/Nenad :sad: :sad:

Dirk
05-27-2004, 11:36 AM
Duece on Roger's serve.

Neely
05-27-2004, 11:36 AM
Roger can't win much on his 2nd serve, Kiefer is returning very well on 2nd serve Roger

Sjengster
05-27-2004, 11:36 AM
Another ace and another double in this game. Roger, do you remember where you left your serve this morning?

WyveN
05-27-2004, 11:37 AM
roger loses serve after being up 40-15.........break him back!

asotgod
05-27-2004, 11:37 AM
Federer broken from 40-0 up, 2 double faults

Dirk
05-27-2004, 11:37 AM
2 doubles in that game. Roger this is insane, time to snap out of it.

kfh_9118
05-27-2004, 11:37 AM
Kiwi breaks 2-1 :bounce:
Now please hold all your serves in this set Nico ;)

Tricky_Forehand
05-27-2004, 11:38 AM
Erlich/Ram :bounce:

NICOLAS!! HOLD!

Neely
05-27-2004, 11:38 AM
Federer know he gets pounded on a weak 2nd serve and that's why he has to take more risk and that's even more difficult when you are struggling with your serve
and Kiefer won the break point again with a good return

WyveN
05-27-2004, 11:38 AM
what is wrong with his serve??
40% in, 8 doubles!

You would thing his game is off but his unforced errors are good as are the winners

asotgod
05-27-2004, 11:38 AM
8 doubles in less than a set and a half

WyveN
05-27-2004, 11:39 AM
and his only lost 1 point on first serve, perhaps time to stop going for so much on the first serve and ensure that he gets it in

Billabong
05-27-2004, 11:40 AM
cmon Rogi:D!!! Break him back:bounce:!

Neely
05-27-2004, 11:41 AM
Kiefer holds 3-1* :)

Dirk
05-27-2004, 11:42 AM
3-1 Kiefer. Let's see what Rogi can come up with to turn this set around.

Raquel
05-27-2004, 11:42 AM
Lleyton 3-1 in the 4th :)

Come on Roger 1-3 0-30 :(

Neely
05-27-2004, 11:44 AM
yeah, Kiefer earns again break point with a good exchange
easily saved by Federer :(

tschaeggy
05-27-2004, 11:44 AM
please rogi, concentrate!!!

WyveN

NoNo,Roger likes Andy so much that he wants to be just like him.;)

Neely

another howitzer return from Kiefer
and again break point now, this time Kiwi had the luck with a bad bouncing ball

oxy
05-27-2004, 11:46 AM
another bp for nicolas

asotgod
05-27-2004, 11:46 AM
Maybe Federer is a little superstitious

oxy
05-27-2004, 11:47 AM
deuce

asotgod
05-27-2004, 11:48 AM
There is nothing wrong with the court. It's his mindset on this particular court. He needs to shut that silly belief about this court in his mind and pick it up.

Neely
05-27-2004, 11:48 AM
Federer finally holds *3-2

but I'm still very pleased with the play of Nicolas :worship: :)

tschaeggy
05-27-2004, 11:48 AM
yeah !!

Dirk
05-27-2004, 11:48 AM
Roger needs to rethink his serving pattern otherwise he and Andy will have something in common this year too.

kfh_9118
05-27-2004, 11:49 AM
Nicolas gives a very good fight so far :bigclap:

Please hold your serve, Kiwi :scared:

Neely
05-27-2004, 11:50 AM
lol, the commentator just said that Feliciano Lopez is a very good player on clay :lol: :haha:

Tricky_Forehand
05-27-2004, 11:50 AM
Xavier up 4-0 in the 2nd :D :D

jurgen down a break in the 4th :sad: :sad:

HOLD here again, Nicolas

Dirk
05-27-2004, 11:50 AM
For Roger to say that out loud about this court says something about him. Sadly it wasn't good. Legends don't think such nonsense and they certainly don't speak it. Roger raise your serving or you're done.

Neely
05-27-2004, 11:51 AM
damn, Nicolas is near to collapse on his serve now :(
0-30 again

Lalitha
05-27-2004, 11:51 AM
Nicolas, do a Oliver Mutis today

Shy
05-27-2004, 11:51 AM
For Roger to say that out loud about this court says something about him. Sadly it wasn't good. Legends don't think such nonsense and they certainly don't speak it. Roger raise your serving or you're done.
It has nothing with this court.He is just struggling today.

Neely
05-27-2004, 11:52 AM
OMG, that was pathetic now
Kiefer lost serve to love

3-3

WyveN
05-27-2004, 11:52 AM
hewitt up 5-2, melzer decided to give up and play terribly for some reason........at least i get to watch federer very soon

Dirk
05-27-2004, 11:52 AM
great break back, now hold and try to take it easy on yourself Rogi.

Tricky_Forehand
05-27-2004, 11:53 AM
i think losing those bp discouraged him :sad: :sad: :sad:

Neely
05-27-2004, 11:53 AM
yes, finally a lucky letcord for Nicolas

tschaeggy

Kiefer breaks for 4-3 :( He is playing well though. Come on Rogi!

Break Kiwi, excellent!

Pity Melzer lost, didn't get his revenge for being beaten by Hewitt in Hamburg

Sjengster
05-27-2004, 11:57 AM
I could see that coming the moment Federer broke back. Typical.

asotgod
05-27-2004, 11:58 AM
Dirk,

Isn't this funny or somewhat frustrating?

Lalitha
05-27-2004, 11:58 AM
Hewitt won!!!

Neely

Federer breaks again!

Kiefer has to hit a few 1st serves in his next game, that is essential

I swear, Federer not only has more mishits than any other top player, he also wins more lucky points from mishits than anyone else. This is not convincing, and Kiefer must feel he could have been running away with this by now.

Federer has a new "aura" about him-> since winning Wimbledon, TMC, AO, IW-TMS, Hamburg-TMS... @@ even when he plays like shit he still going to win in straight sets!!! The mishits go it, he knows he can afford to double-fault & do silly mistakes because his uber talent will allow him to win all the important points when he concentrates! Unless Guga Kuertan can cause an upset in Rd3!

PMac does not know what he is saying. Federer is playing ok, and so is Kiefer, but Kiefer is returning flat and beautifully also. That's why this is a difficult match.
