Love this comment from Roger. :lol:

Q: The fact that Novak Djokovic could hang with Nadal in the semi-finals in Madrid and then you beat him (Nadal) in the final, certainly does you good psychologically. Do you tell yourself: this is possible, he is beatable?

Roger Federer: The important thing for me is to beat Nadal, not that Djokovic can hang with him. That (the latter) is of no use to me. But it is true that when someone dominates an area like Rafael does on clay, it's always good to see that he almost lost against Djokovic. If you play well against him, it is feasible.

Was reading the paper today with it's sort of preview of RG and it said that Andy Murray can take over as no.2 if he has a good run at RG (I read that as at least getting to the semi's) & Roger didn't win the whole thing, as apparently if he doesn't win RG then he loses points. I thought he'd "only" have to match his previous year's result & be the runner up again to defend his points. I mean assuming it's the same final as last year & Roger is runner up again, surely that means he's defended his points from last year & thus doesn't lose any...sure Murray could gain some points by getting further in the tournament than he ever has done but Roger doesn't have to win the whole tournament in order to not lose points does he? Have I got the ranking point system completely wrong? :confused:

Just watched Roger have a practice session with Andreas Seppi. They hit for a while then played a practice set.
Looked very good out there. Tried out that killer new drop shot a lot - and boyyyy was he on fire. Really psyched for tomorrow :-)Could the drop shot help Roger win his first RG title? :D

That's a kind of dumb system if you ask me, and not just because Roger now has to win RG to not lose points, it's dumb for all players if you ask me (and that ignores your point about what the defending champion has to do). Harsh as anything on a runner up or a semi-finalist, means they HAVE to make that next step up to either make the final or win the whole thing just to actually maintain their points from last year. Easier on the guys who lost earlier the previous year as now they don't have to do as much to make up their points. Why did they change the system? I mean what's their argument for it, what does it enhance?

I mean what's their argument for it, what does it enhance?Players don't lose points when they succesfully defend a tournament, a win is still worth the same amount of points. But in the new rankings system more emphasis is placed on winning a tournament instead of reaching semis/finals. So where Roger currently has 1400 points for his RG final in 2008 and final this year will only be worth 1200 points and the other rounds are worth less points than 2008 as well but a win is still 2000 points.

Thanks for clarifying, i think its a good system to try and push more players to go for the title. However its tricky for roger, if he can get one step further at RG and Wimby this year than all will be good. If on the other hand his results are similar to last years or worse he will lose his no. 2 ranking to Andy at RG

Ah I see, so all rounds (other than winning the tournament) are worth less in points than last year? I first thought that it was some set up whereby if you didn't beat your previous year's performance (whatever that may have been) then you lost points regardless of whether it was a 2nd round, semi-final, runner up etc. That system is ok, at least it'll drive players on to want to win the tournament more (not that they don't already want to win of course) rather than just building up ranking points by doing "ok" each year. Still a little harsh that Roger could conceivably match his performance from the last few years (obviously hope he does one better this year! :D), be the 2nd best player at RG & lose points as a result, and maybe even the no.2 spot if Murray does well enough.

Then again to be honest, even though I started this ranking talk, so long as performance-wise Roger is doing well & he's happy on court, I'm not too bothered by ranking now for him. It's more about the results themselves & the manner of his wins or losses for me.

The BBC commentators were saying that Martin's gameplan would probably be basically get balls back, don't make errors, wait for Federer to make any errors. They thought he wouldn't try to be aggressive, wouldn't go for anything too risky & just concentrate on getting the ball back a.k.a. the most boring gameplan ever known to man :rolleyes:

I think 'cruising' is the best word for Roger at the moment, he's comfortable, serving well still, the odd error or two but not getting into too much trouble on his games. Some nice shots & mixing it up with drop shots still.

Indeed, from what I saw he was comfortable, got into a great rhythm with his serve, the forehand was great, the dropshots were mostly excellent, moving well & just overall very comfortable. Hopefully he can keep this level up & get better as he goes on.

Missed the very beginning of the match; I'd taken a nap during Nadal's match :angel: and when I woke up, it was 2-0 for Martin. :o But Roger played well most of the time, so yay for that. :D :yeah:

I quite like his outfit, too - blue with shades of orange/red. :hearts: Nadal's made my eyes bleed, though. I looooooove pink on men, and pink/yellow is an awesome combination, but this particular combination was just... mindboggling. I don't know if it's the hot pink or the bright yellow, or if both colours just bring out the worst in each other.

Oh, and did anyone else notice Roger grunting during a rally in the third set, 4-2 deuce (I think)? I know he sometimes grunts during a serve and sometimes while hitting a forehand/backhand too, but I've never heard him do it that often during a rally. So did anyone else hear it, or am I the only one?

It kind of made me giggle. ♥

Good match overall although he lost concentration on some Martin serve games. He could have made the scoreline a lot worse.

Agreed, he could have made the scoreline a lot worse for Martin if he really wanted but then there's been quite a few matches over the years where he's been comfortably ahead with just one break & gone on to win just 6-4 6-4 7-5 or something, never in any threat of being broken or of losing a set/the match but also not really pushing for more to get a really crazy beatdown on his opponent. I think Nadal, for instance, quite often wants to win any & all games he can & hence why he sometimes wins a lot of matches 6-1 6-0 6-2 etc whilst Roger is happy so long as he's playing nice, winning & comfortable in the match, not under threat etc. Why expend more energy than neccessary trying to break a guy's serve that you've already broken? (Especially if your own serve is safe as houses)

Oh and on the state of his outfit, I loved it! I love it more if it were a collarless shirt but this is lovely anyway. :)

I think Jose might take the 1st set, and Roger wins it in 4.

The longer this match the better for me obviously :p
