To say I'm nervous as hell is a MASSIVE, GIGANTIC understatement. If he messes this up....Oh dear. :(

this is a massive chance for Roger, and I really don't think he'll mess it up. ALLEZ! :rocker2:

I don't think I've EVER been more nervous for Roger in a Grand Slam tournament before. Not in any of the Wimbledons, previous RG's, US or Aussie Opens...this is a massive, massive, ridiculously huge, potential to solidify GOAT status chance but I'm scared he won't take it somehow. I'm not sure I'll be able to watch any of his matches...I'd be able to watch the final if he got there but the earlier rounds I'm too scared incase something goes wrong.

I haven't watched many FO matches in the last couple of years. Too painful knowing what could (and did) come at the end. But now I'll be glued to each Fed match.

I'm terrified. Absolutely terrified.

But I'll be rooting and cheering for him all the way. I've changed my flag to a Swiss one for all his remaining matches. :)

This is a dream I have dared not to dream for the past 4 years ... and somehow, I still can't bring myself to dream it ... I only know that if the dream becomes reality I will weep buckets of tears for him.

He's not been in this spot, since 2003. That's how long he's been behind Nadal, losses at the SF,F,F,F and now the road is finally clear. Patience pays off!

OMG me too. :sobbing: :bigcry: It'll probably be my best day as a Fed fan. Even better than seeing him lift the 5th Wimbly trophy.

He did say in a tiny BBC interview a few weeks ago that he (& he said other players were too) was ready to take advantage if Rafa ever slipped up at RG. So I am confident he is prepared to play in RG with the knowledge that Rafa is not a potential opponent down the line but I do hope he doesn't get carried away, thinking ahead of what may be. He needs to concentrate on his next amtch only & not think about finals or winning, act as if Rafa were still in the draw & nothing has changed from that. Hopefully he won't act like RG is already won because Rafa isn't about.

I know. I'm beginning to think the Andy Roddick will win prediction might come to fruition. Every ten years an American wins. Chang in 89, Agassi in 99 and Andy Roddick in 09? Agassi is also presenting the trophy. Oh man, can you imagine? I sincerely hope this doesn't happen. Keep it together Roger!

Honestly I think IF Roger is going to win this tournament he would win it regardless of what Nadal did. I'm certainly not counting my chickens before they hatch, but I don't understand why Nadal being out now dooms Roger. :shrug:

And why is anyone talking about Roddick? So far he's beaten Romain Jouan, Ivo Minar and Marc Giquel. OK fine he's made the most of his draw, but it's not like he's beaten a slew of great clay court players or dangerous floaters. Had Roddick played Acasuso, Kohli or Soderling does anyone really think he'd still be in the tournament? It's not like he's hitting his opponents off the court. In every one of his matches, excluding aces, his opponent has hit more winners than him. It's just that none of them were close to being capable of bossing him around. Someone like Monfils, or Federer or Haas are.

I agree. There are still a some tricky opponents out there and I hope Rog doesn't let his guard down just because Rafa is out of the picture.

You are either lying or a fool if you truly think Nadal being out doesn't have any impact on Roger. Let's say if Roger is in the final, what would you think if the opponent was Nadal, and if it was not? Tell me you would think the same...(and don't tell me Roger is not in yet)

Stop being nastily objective when you are not if you are a fan :wavey:

Stop being nastily objective when you are not if you are a fan :wavey:I agree, Roger can talk about only looking ahead to the next match/opponent all he wants but surely he knows as well as anyone else that with Nadal out, he actually has a genuine shot at winning RG and his 14th GS. And I don't think now being the outright favourite to win is going to do Roger any good:shrug:

:D I like Murray very much actually but not as much as Roger. And I'm still petrified :bigcry:

He'll never get another chance like this - it's just so stark and he's wanted it for so long.

Mustn't jump the gun - he's got today and the QF and SF to get through yet. I do not relish the prospect of him playing JWT in front of his home crowd either so go JMDP today!:bounce:

You know what this tournament reminds me of? Australian open 2006, when all the favorites where out and Federer was just a mess full of anxiety from the pressure of having to win the tournament. He had very few easy matches in that tournament and played really subpar all the way till he broke down in tears after the 4 set victory against Baghy.

Yeah, this one is pretty intense. Even Wimbledon '08 and USO '08 didn't have this kind of pressure/finality to them. If it was already the SF or F when Nadal went out, it might be ok. But from R4, it's sooooooooooooooo far away.

06-02-2009, 08:34 AM
I agree, so massive, I'm so nervous for him. I kept imagining him falling down on the clay in victory even before Rafa went out, now I'm so so scared.

I can't imagine how he's feeling, and I just hope Mirka won't go into premature labour on the spot.

I'll just have to hope that the Gonzalez Soderling match is the longest 5 setter in history with a score like 22-20 in the 5th to have any chance of catching some bits of the Fed match. :bigcry:

My exams start at 2 today, and it's 3 hours in total with and hour's break in between. So I won't be home until 6.30 ish. :hysteric:

Wow, the week between May 31th and June 7th was probably one of the most stressful weeks I can ever remember going through. I was not even this stressed in job interviews, doing three exams in consecutive days or while writing my thesis as I was during that week. :eek:

Especially in the finals it was the middle of the night here, I was trying to sleep, couldn't and then at 5 am I couldn't take it anymore so I logged on to check the result and saw he won! I was exhilirated and spent the rest of the morning on the net. Needless to say the resy of the day was not too productive :tape:
