I think he won't be that tired. Perhaps a bit mentally, but because of the win and the week of rest after Halle, he should be fine.

Fysicly he should be fine. He has played more sets then normal but the matches did not take that long.

vs Haas was only 3 hours
vs Del Potro was 3,5 hours.

He looked absolutely fine after today. And Halle is only best of three.

BRIEF-Tennis-Federer still unsure about Halle participation
1 hour, 24 minutes ago

Buzz up! PrintHALLE, Germany, June 8 (Reuters) - New French Open champion Roger Federer will decide on Tuesday whether to defend his grasscourt title at Halle after victory in Paris left him “emotionally drained”, tournament spokesman Frank Hofen said.

Federer, who became only the sixth man to complete a career grand slam when he beat Robin Soderling in Sunday’s French Open final, has won Halle five times in the past six years.

“Federer will decide on Tuesday if he will start,” tournament organisers said in a statement after contacting Federer’s manager Tony Godsick.

“Federer feels ‘emotionally drained’ according to Godsick but he will take his decision once he returns to Switzerland tomorrow midday,” Hofen said.

understandable but would have preferred him to participate... im a bit disappointed. how is he going to prepare fore\ wimbly? winning RG and losing early in wimbly would undo a lot of good done recently.
plus there is no chance that he will get back #1 with a wimbly title
that would have been the fairy tale ending... struggle for so long, then win the one that had eluded him to become the grandslam man, tying the record, then regaining the his dearest wimbly title, world #1 AND breaking Pete's Record... omg... that would have been toooooooooooooooooooooooo perfect.

No surprise but very glad to hear he's dropped Halle. Tough for the tournament and the spectators and very bad luck for those of you who're going. But he needs some time to recuperate.

Can't wait for Wimbledon and agree his first match will be something.

It took him some time to decide, but finally Roger Federer withdrew from the GERRY WEBER OPEN 2009. (Photo: pmk)
Federer said in a statement on his webpage: “I am sorry to announce that I have decided to withdraw from this week's Gerry Weber Open in Halle, Germany. I sincerely apologize to the tournament organizers, my competitors, and my fans in Germany. I only hope they will understand
that I still feel emotionally overwhelmed and exhausted by the incredible events of the past few days. It is hard for me to admit, but I simply cannot imagine giving my best effort in another tournament right away and I don't want to risk injury if I am not 100% prepared. I need to rest and recuperate. I look forward to returning to Halle in 2010 to go for my sixth title. It is one of my favourite events on the ATP World Tour.”

Tournament director Ralf Weber said he could understand Federer, who “really had a difficult decision to make”. Weber stated: “If Roger travels to a tournament, he wants to win. He only wants to present himself in top shape which is not possible in this very special situation. He has been thinking about this for many hours before making a final decision. I am sure he will be playing world-class tennis at the highest level for a long time.” Weber also pointed out the three-year contract he has struck with the Swiss master and looks forward to his participation next year.

Weber added that the decision to invest into a strong entry field has already paid dividends, especially with Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Novak Djokovic putting on impressive performances in the first round. (Photo: pmk)09.06.2009

Andy Murray wants more respect from Roger Federer as he sets sights on Wimbledon (http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/more-sport/2009/06/16/andy-murray-wants-more-respect-from-roger-federer-as-he-sets-sights-on-wimbledon-115875-21444195/)
By Neil McLeman 16/06/2009

Andy Murray yesterday showed there is little love lost between him and Roger Federer by accusing the Swiss superstar of a lack of respect.

And the British No.1 is now ready to repay the five-time winner by beating him at Wimbledon.

The pair are the favourites to triumph at SW19 this year, with Rafa Nadal still an injury doubt.

But while the normally polite Federer has always been complimentary about the Spaniard, who has replaced him as world No.1, he cannot bring himself to say a nice word about the world No.3.

After losing to Murray in Dubai last year, Federer cattily accused the Scot of defensive tactics and relying on the mistakes of his opponents to win matches.

The Swiss won their next match in their only Grand Slam meeting to date in the final of the US Open last September.

But since then, Murray has responded by beating the holder of 14 Grand Slams in four consecutive matches by driving him to distraction with his variation of speed and direction and targeting the Federer backhand.

Murray has definitely got inside his head. The 22-year-old now enjoys a 6-2 winning record over the player who recently completed the career Grand Slam at the French Open and is regarded by many as the greatest ever.

Yet even at Roland Garros, Federer could not bring himself to admit Murray was a candidate for the title.

The Scot responded yesterday by insisting Pete Sampras was the best grasscourt player of all time. And then he insisted he will continue to try to infuriate the Swiss if they clash at his home Grand Slam.

“A lot of the times I have beaten him he has said negative things about my game. It doesn’t bother me that much,” said Murray.

“It didn’t make me feel I needed to change my game. I think a lot of times he has been very frustrated playing against me, which has showed that the game style I play against him works.”

Asked whether he was surprised by Federer’s comments, Murray replied: “He doesn’t lose very often so he doesn’t need to be critical of his opponents. It is sometimes tougher to be nice when you lose matches.

“I have never done it, I don’t think. If someone beats you, it is a sport. I don’t think you can criticise the way they have played if they have won against you because they have done all they needed to.

“It is quite easy sometimes to look at what you did wrong but I think a lot of times when you lose it quite often comes down to a great performance from the opponent.”

After playing all eight of their matches on hardcourts, Murray said he will now have no fears of facing Federer on grass. “I will definitely take confidence playing against him from our matches in the past if I face him at Wimbledon,” said the Scot, full of confidence after his glory at Queen’s on Sunday.

“After playing the last three finals, I would think the odds for Nadal and Federer to reach the final again would be very high. But I feel much more capable of winning a Grand Slam now than I did at Wimbledon last year. I just feel like mentally I can do it. I feel like I am ready.”

Murray was talking at the launch of his new retro Fred Perry kit to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the birth of Britain’s last Wimbledon winner.

“That was a little bit uncomfortable. It is not a career I am going to pursue,” he said after his unconvincing catwalk display.

You or me may not like it when Murray plays like that but you have to admit, it works really well against Fed. Murray was not wrong in saying that.

Federer to Play Wimbledon in Throwback Slacks, Sweater and Loafers
The Sportsman's Daily, 16 June 2009
http://sportsmansdaily.com/thescrum/?p=1354#more-1354

...snip

While he’ll never have the opportunity to compete against the Bill Tildens, Don Budges and Rod Lavers – giants of the pre-open era (Laver played in both) – Federer is determined to show he can perform at the highest levels on tennis’s grandest stage in the restrictive throwback garb seldom seen outside of a Ralph Lauren ad.

“Nike sent me a prototype yesterday — we’ll have to do something about the sweater, as I’m highly allergic to virgin wool, the slacks don’t break right, the shoes need breaking in and while the scarf is a nice touch, it’s not really my style,” said Federer. “I practiced in it for two hours. I’ll admit, it’s not ideal for today’s more demanding game…but I like the fact that you can walk off the court and go straight to dinner without changing. It’s a real time-saver.”

Why does he care?Grrr...yes I know it works and it frustrates Roger. In fact I think Roger admitted as much a month or so ago. In the most recent interviews Roger has given he said his biggest weakness is his BH return and that he wants to play more aggressive. Should Roger meet Murray at SW19 I hope he has a different attitude than some of their recent matches and really takes it to Muray. Don't allow his strategy of breaking down the BH to work.

Murray's style may not be pretty (it isn't), his game may be boring, (at times it is - I don't accept that it is ALL the time), he may knock back the ball ad infinitum until he draws the error, but its up to Roger to find a way to counteract this otherwise the h2h will only grow.

I can't imagine Nadal pulling out. I think it's all Team Nadal I'm the underdog PR at work. BUT....if he did pull out, and pulled out after the draw was made what happens? Does the #3 seed take his place and all the seeds shift around? Or does #33 take his spot?

Hey guys :). I have a question. If I remember correctly the men's defending champion is playing his first match on a given day every year, I just can't remember if it's Monday or Tuesday :scratch:. And yes I do know that Rafa is the defending champion :lol:, but obviously Roger will play the other day :).

I’m not normally a Patrick McEnroe fan, but wow he’s actually making some sense here. :D

http://www.gototennisblog.com/2009/06/17/wimbledon-controversies-nadals-knees-federers-manhood-venuss-seeding/

He doesn’t buy the Nadal knee injury BS. Says:

“I’m a little dumbfounded by all the talk on how bad his knees are. I think he pulled from Queen’s (a Wimbledon warm-up tournament) because he’s mentally spent. Last year at the US Open everyone was talking about how tired he was and he lost in the semis. Five days later I saw him practicing in Madrid (in the Davis Cup semis vs. U.S.A.) for four or five hours a day. I’m not exaggerating. . .I have a hard time believing he’s really that hurt.”

“I think he’ll be fine (at Wimbledon). It’s more of a mental battle for him in losing the French.”

And he hasn’t jumped on the Murray hype bandwagon yet. Says:

“I don’t think this is the time, no. He’s certainly getting closer. (Winning) Queen’s Club was a good result but let’s be honest: Nadal and Federer weren’t there. I still believe that Murray lacks a little bit of that aggressive physicality to win this tournament. The conditions have slowed a lot at Wimbledon but you have to be able to penetrate and put some juice on the ball. . .I don’t think he has enough of that to beat the top players when they’re playing well. And if he meets a Nadal or Federer at Wimbledon they’re going to be playing well. I’m not a true believer yet.“

I think they may have a #33 seed or a lucky loser. I remember Sampras injured his back and had to pull out of the 1999 U.S. Open after the draw was made. They didn't shift the existing seeds around and I think they placed a LL in his spot instead.

The website shows Fed's gear for Wimby 2009. Second one (first one is Rafa's)

http://tennisconnected.com/home/2009/06/16/rafar-feds-wimbledon-gear/

I love how Nike only gives Fed the gold. Of course, this doesn't show any blazer, cardigan, shawl, bolero, leather jacket, etc. that Fed might wear as accompaniment.

I don't get why some people are saying Fed needs to tone down his Wimby outfit cos he's not the defending champion this year. He lost 9-7 in the fifth set, for goodness' sake. Fed OWNED centre court for 5 straight years - he can wear a terrycloth towel with a huge RF emblazoned on it if he wants. In gold, of course. Without a doubt.

Murray has never won Wimby and is World No. 3 and he is wearing some commemorative Fred Perry gear. I think that's great.

One of my fav moments is to see what outrageous outfit Fed comes out in his first match at Wimby.

Murray on the other side, and Djoko unlikely to get past a stacked QF. He's got Karlovic, Del Pony and Haas.

Am I the only one who is pretty happy with Roger's draw? I actually think it is good he has one or two matches where he can work his way in to form and then some harder matches to keep him on his toes and help him play his way to peak performance as the tournament goes on.

I am also happy that all the focus is on Nadal and Murray. Honestly, I am still delighted with Roger's win in Paris and everything else he achieves from this point on is gravy. I still would dearly love for him to reclaim Wimbledon and do the RG Wimby double, but really RG was the one that was crucial for him to win.

By the way, not that I read that much into things like this but Roger plays Yen-Hsun Lu from Taiwan. The last time he drew a Taiwanese player in the first round of a grand slam was Yeu-Tzuoo Wang in the 2006 U.S. Open, which he ended up winning. ;)

It won't be easy, but if he's playing well, he should be there in the SF's. Djokovic has a bye all the way to the SF's as does Murray.

Lu-->GGL/Calleri-->Kohls-->Soderling-->Tsonga-->Djokovic

If he does wind up playing Kohls/Soderling/Tsonga in succession, that would be the hardest 3rd, 4th, and 5th matches as a whole amongst any of the top 4 seeds.

While it's true he'll have to be sharp early on which is good, it's also true that his rivals have a cakewalk to the SF's. Lu can hit from the baseline unlike Wang--Fed will have to ready from the beginning.

Nadal to decide whether to defend title


Friday, 19 June 2009
Written by David Bates

Nadal's knee
©A Dennis / AFP

Rafael Nadal will decide on Friday whether he will defend his men's singles title at Wimbledon this year

The 23-year-old has been struggling with a knee injury in the lead-up to The Championships and he lost an exhibition match against 2002 champion Lleyton Hewitt 6-4, 6-3 at the Hurlingham Club in Fulham on Thursday.

"Today's match was a real test, as close to reality as it could get," Nadal said after the match. "I will come back and play again and then make my decision about playing at Wimbledon or not."

fnuf7
06-19-2009, 10:05 PM
Usually I'd be slightly happy for a Rafa-less draw but this time I'm actually quite upset that he's not even able to try & defend his Wimbledon title, I always like a defending champ to at least be able to have a go at defending their crown. I had a feeling since the 2007 Wimbledon final that Rafa would beat Roger if they were to meet in the next final (which obviously did happen as it turned out) & since that 2008 final I've had the feeling that were they to meet again in the final this year that Roger would win it back again. Even when he was going through some rough patches by his standards I just thought come Wimbledon he would be back on top again & would end up Champion no matter who he played...I just feel sad for Rafa that he won't even get the chance to defend his well earned title & also sad that we'd be denied another potential classic match between the two. (I'd far rather watch Rafa v Roger than Murray or Djokovic vs Roger & that's nothing to do with the potential outcome of those matches.)

Still as with the French, you can only beat what's on the other side of the net, if the other big guys can't play or get beaten early by other guys you can't help it so Roger just has to go out there & play as we all know he can & have some fun out there. I'm certainly feeling much more positive towards 2009 Wimbledon than I ever was towards 2008 Wimbledon...I was basically dreading that Wimbledon 08 since 2007 :lol:

Also I'll add that I'm actually annoyed Roger & Rafa haven't been meeting more recently due to one of them either being beaten earlier or just not playing, I want Roger to get some more wins to his name so people can stop bringing up his head to head with Rafa as a reason for why he isn't great blah blah blah.

He had a 7:00 press conference at Wimbledon. It's confirmed that he has pulled out. Opens the way for Murray.

I still think Murray will lose unexpectedly (well unexpectedly when you take into account the fact that everyone here thinks he's going to win the whole thing). I don't know his draw very well so can't pick out a specific person who may beat him but I just think at the moment his Grand Slams are all about hype from the British media thinking he'll sweep through a tournament (esepcially when Nadal isn't there, like at RG where once Nadal was out it apparently meant Murray was favourite or something :rolleyes: ) & potential/promise. I think he'll win a grand slam, maybe multiple grand slams, one day but I'm not sure it's just yet & not at Wimbledon right now. I think he'll lose at a QF stage or maybe SF & the media will have a go at him like they always did with Henman (because since Nadal is out now obviously Murray has to win it & anything less is a massive let down despite the fact that a 5 time Wimbledon champion is still in the mix & at least 2-3 other guys who are either in form or fairly good on grass etc)

So yeah I could see Murray making the final but I don't expect him to & wouldn't be at all shocked if he went out at the QF, SF stage or something & we get a "surprise" finalist from that side of the draw.

Everyone that says Roger will get back #1 this summer. Er....have people forgotten about the baby? It's possible that Roger might miss Canada or Cincy because of the baby. I think he would need to do well in one or both of those tournaments, unless Nadal is out for more than just Wimbledon. Roger hasn't said when the baby is due or if he'll miss any events, but my guess is he'll want to take some time off after the baby comes.

Roger hasn't said when the baby is due or if he'll miss any events, but my guess is he'll want to take some time off after the baby comes.

I keep reading that the baby is due in August (around Roger's birthday) no idea where they get that info, the media are probably just taking what has been said publically ie: summer due date & going with whatever they want to fit a story but anyway I keep reading August as the due time so it's conceivable that the baby could be born & it's initial weeks of life are when Roger is usually on his post Wimbledon holiday (which would be lovely timing I might add as he'd have time to be with Mirka & the kid quite intensely.) That said you're totally right, we'll just have to wait & see what happens, the kid may be born & Roger may want to spend a few months with Mirka & his new baby, who knows?! And even ignoring all that, we don't have any guarantees that were he to play all these tournaments that he'd actually win them. That said I'm feeling very positive for Roger this year in all sorts of ways, professionally & personally, this is an exciting, positive time for him in every way.

Federer doesn't have much to defend until the USO.

If he wins Wimbledon, and unless Murray makes a decent run here, he should be able to hold and keep number one until the french rolls around again.

The key is for Roger to make up the distance between him and Nadal here.

As for the baby, would it really cause that much trouble for him to play cincy and montreal? Two tournaments from early July to late August, about 6 weeks or so.

Roger Federer

Saturday, 20 June 2009

Q. Can I ask you where you were when you heard the news about Rafa last night, what your immediate reaction was and what your reaction is now?

ROGER FEDERER: Well, I was here. I heard he was gonna have a press conference at 7:00 p.m. around 5:00 or so. You know, I didn't know if he was just going to announce that he was going to be playing or not playing. I guess that was the question.

So I guess I was, you know, slightly prepared that he wouldn't play, so then it doesn't come as such a big surprise. So it's obviously very disappointing for the tournament, and also for myself.

Q. Are you emotionally ready for Wimbledon now after the massive win in the French Open less than two weeks ago?

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I feel, you know, good. I feel like I'm playing very well at the moment. On the grass, it didn't take me much time to get used to the conditions on grass. I mean, never really does.

But it was good to take a week off, you know, get away from it all and enjoy the time at home and recover. I feel like I'm ready to go here.

Q. Do you feel a weight of expectation that's come back onto you? Did you feel it when Nadal lost at the French, and do you feel it now that he's pulled out here? Do you feel expectations have gone back onto your shoulders, perhaps?

ROGER FEDERER: No, I mean, you can't compare what happened at the French with this. You know, we were in the middle of a tournament during Paris, you know, when he lost. You know, I've never won Paris before, so it's a completely different situation.

I've already beaten, you know, Rafa here twice in finals, so I know I can, you know, beat him here. I just think it's very disappointing that he can't play.

But I don't feel like I have extra pressure now having to win the tournament or trying to. I mean, anyway, there's a lot of weight off my shoulders since Paris.

So I'm anyway entering tournaments, I guess, a little bit more relaxed these days.

Q. The fact that you didn't play a tournaments two years ago between the French and here, does that give you more assurance about how you'll be this year?

ROGER FEDERER: Well, yeah, maybe a touch, you know. But at the same time, I know when to take a break and when not to. You know, when to push for another tournament. This one was just hard.

You know, I was mentally drained because I felt like I had to play like four finals at the end of Paris because of the pressure. You know, there's such a relief and happiness once it was all over that for me it was almost impossible to change it all around again and start, you know, a tournament from scratch again like two days after.

So, I mean, I always know that I'm gonna be in good shape, because in practice you can't simulate matches as well in a way. You know, you can practice even harder, and that's what I'm trying to do this week. I've been practicing really well. The weather has been good as well, and I feel like I'm ready to go.

Now obviously the results will only show. I'm definitely missing those big pressure moments of having to face breakpoints and all these kind of things. But you get similar feelings in practice sometimes. So I feel like I'm playing well enough to do very well here.

Q. Does it surprise you that Bjorn, all five years, he didn't play a tournament between the French Open and Wimbledon?

ROGER FEDERER: Not really, no. It's possible, yeah.

Q. Do you consider Andy Murray to be your principal threat now that Rafa is out?

ROGER FEDERER: No, I mean, I always said Andy I think is a wonderful grass court player, and he showed a little bit last year even though he was not very close with Gasquet in that one match where he fought very brave.

But, no, you know, I think with the success he's had on hard courts, you know, the last let's say especially last year where he's been very, very solid and very, very good. I always knew that Andy was going to be, you know, one of the toughest ones to beat on grass next to Rafa and Djokovic, and I think even like Del Potros, Tsongas, Gonzálezs, and now even Soderling.

There are so many guys around who are dangerous and up and coming still. Maybe it's hard for them to win the tournament, but on any given day they can create a huge upset. Then you have the usual suspects: Roddick I think is going to be so difficult to beat again because he's playing better. And other players, so it's being to be an interesting championship, I think.

Q. In your experience, the huge pressure of being a Briton at Wimbledon, do you think that will help him or cramp his style?

ROGER FEDERER: Time will tell really. I mean, seems like he handled it well last year. Again, he handled it well in Queen's, so seems like it's going to be okay for him.

Q. You and Tiger Woods both have 14 major titles. What are the other similarities that you see between the two of you?

ROGER FEDERER: Well, success, I guess. I mean, I don't know what else to say. I mean, like we've been at the top for a very long time. We've been when you talk about golf, you talk about Tiger; when you talk about tennis, you talk about me.

So it's something we have, you know, something similar there. Our mindset, our approach. You know, we're very driven. We try to not only just play well, but we try to dominate, you know, if we can. There is obviously many similarities in this regard.

Q. To what degree is the majors record on your mind going into this tournament, and how do you hope it will affect you, if at all?

ROGER FEDERER: Uhm, the focus is on the first round and the first point, you know. But trying to regain my Wimbledon crown, I guess, so that stands over trying to beat, you know, Pete's record right now.

But I guess once I come down to the semifinals or finals, hopefully, you know, in like 10, 12 days, you know, then hopefully that's also gonna start creeping into my mind.

But right now, just trying to regain my Wimbledon crown. It would be a dream come true, of course.

Q. Could I ask you in which way is Rafael Nadal's absence for you disappointing?

ROGER FEDERER: Well, I mean, it's a little bit similar to Paris. We played the last four years against each other in Paris. We played the last three years against each other here at Wimbledon. So we definitely won't see the same finals again.

So that's disappointing for me, of course, because I'd love to play him. He's my main rival. We've had some wonderful matches over the years, and especially the one here last year was the one that obviously stands out.

So that we can't potentially maybe repeat that, uhm, is obviously sad. But it gives me it just shows me how lucky I've been, you know, that I haven't been injured over all those years, you know, that I've been able to keep it up.

Even though I was No. 1, the one people were going after, I was there, I was not injured very often, and I was able to keep it up. It just shows it goes so quick.

So it's unfortunate. I'm sad for him, because it must have been a very difficult decision to make.

Q. Did you see him at all during the week here?

ROGER FEDERER: Uhm, on Wednesday maybe, just briefly.

Q. Did you chat at all?

ROGER FEDERER: Chat? 10 second chat maybe (smiling). He congratulated me for Paris. It was good to see him. I asked him how his knee was. He was like, it's okay. So I kind of knew it wasn't great, because he's very honest to me. So I knew that something could be coming up.

Q. Can you compare trying to tie an all time record versus trying to break an all time record? Is there any different pressure?

ROGER FEDERER: I don't know if it's got that much to do with it. Let's say in Paris, it was just trying to win my first Paris, you know. Then obviously if it happens at the same time, you know, now that I was able to tie sort of let's say Agassi's or Laver's, those four different majors, or the 14 of Sampras, it was maybe very fitting that it all happened at once, you know.

But, you know, I didn't particularly enter the French trying to tie Pete's record again. I was just trying to win my first Roland Garros, you know. It's very a different approach. I think when you're down lower, you know, you have eight, nine majors maybe and you're trying to get up there, this is when you're maybe forcing it more. You're trying to say, All right, I need to get a few to pick it up there.

Since I been very close, I knew I had kind of some time on my side. I knew if things fell into place that I was gonna win more majors, you know. So same thing here. I don't feel any pressure having to beat Pete's record right now this week, but I know that things are looking good for me.

If I win Paris, there's obviously a very good chance I can also win Wimbledon without, you know, underestimating any of the opponents, because they're all playing very well, as well. They want to win the tournament here, as well.

Q. One player who pushed you really hard at the French was Juan Martin Del Potro. How do you see his game translating to the grass? Perhaps any danger with his movement or anything like that?

ROGER FEDERER: Well, I played him here actually a few years ago on Court 1. I beat him in straight sets. Of course, he's a different player to a few years ago. Even last year I think he lost quite early to my friend Stanislas Wawrinka in straight sets maybe, as well.

So I think with confidence, you know, that can help in a big way. He's improved his serve a lot, which is obviously an important key on grass. And that's why I see him also having a run here on this type of surface.

Sure, he doesn't have the experience. That could work both ways. So I think the beginning is important for him, you know, getting through the first week, because this is where the grass is maybe probably the most difficult for him to move on.

Q. You're known as a very sporting role model. In the matches you've lost to Andy Murray, it seems you've been a little bit irritated, I don't know, by his style, or maybe it was just to lose the matches. Is there anything about his game or his style that irritates you?

ROGER FEDERER: Just that he's very good, otherwise not a whole lot.

Q. Nothing particular about the way he plays?

ROGER FEDERER: No. I mean, he's a very gifted player, you know. He has wonderful feel. He's a great tactician. I always said that, you know. And he's finally proved it because it took him some time, you know. That was the disappointing part, I thought, that it took him longer than I expected, you know. So I was wrong with my prediction, because I expected him to do better a few years ago.

But, you know, everything is coming together for him now and he's been rock solid for, you know, over a year now, almost two years now. So, uhm, he's there where he belongs, absolutely.

Q. Do you think, if you and Andy did reach the final, a big if...

ROGER FEDERER: Big if, yes.

Q. Do you think the head to head advantage he's got over you will be a factor?

ROGER FEDERER: Speculation. I don't really want to answer that. Really there's no point to talk about it. Sorry. Love to talk about it, but not there yet.

Q. What sort of impact do you think, if it's used, the roof will make on Centre Court? How will it change the atmosphere there?

ROGER FEDERER: I think it's actually gonna I'm not gonna say it makes the atmosphere better, but might be more intimate because, you know, the sound will stay within the stadium. You're not looking for rain. Looking forward to experience it.

Q. You'd love to play?

ROGER FEDERER: I'd love to play, yeah, sure, indoors. I've played in Halle, you know, in Germany, indoor grass sort of because they've also got the sliding roof, and it worked very well. They even had to once close it during the finals. We stayed on court, they shut the roof, and we continued on. Then the big rain came.

The atmosphere, you know, remained great. Even got a bit more, you know, intense, the whole thing. I'm sure it's gonna be really, really nice.

I went to see Centre Court the other day. You know, it didn't lose anything of the whole history part. It still remains, you know, the best court in the world. I'm excited to going out there on Monday.

I called this before Nadal withdrew. I'm not the least bit surprised to see Roger start. :b:

I would prefer him to smoke Nadal, but I'm not going to say I am disappointed that Federer has a chance for number one. He's earned it by defeating Nadal in Madrid when given the opportunity.

I would feel much worse if it were a sudden injury, but Federer has had absolutely nothing to do with Nadal pulling out. Federer has proven this year he can beat Nadal fair and square. It's best for Nadal to sit through Wimbledon and heal up rather then risk career-ending injury.

Commiserations, front row seats for Murray's matches ;)

Minnie - how do you manage to get such good seats without queuing? The best I've ever sat in were in row J, and they weren't mine. Even with debentures you're usually a good way back.

A friend + I both went into the ballot and came up trumps ... neither of us could believe our eyes when we saw the seats we'd been allocated .. and the date - 23 June and 25 June (assuming Roger would have played CC again on 25/6). It was pure luck ... we have never had such good seats in the ballot and probably never will again. So you can imagine, I'm feeling ... well, words can't describe it ... suffice to say I have absolutely no sympathy for Nadal and his knees :rolleyes:

When it comes to the Murray match on 23/6 - I think we'll disappear for a spot of champers + strawberries :lol: :lol:

Off the top of my head the following are also Feduzzas: rocketassist, sapeod, ballbasher101, decrepitude, scoobs, and green(can't remember the rest of his/her username). And I'm sure there are more Murderers out there. :p

I'd count myself as a FedUzza too. Not sure if I was allowed to mention it around these parts :scared: I'm not too keen on the "FedUzza" name though :scratch:

To be honest though he's probably not playing at full throttle at all is he? No disrespect to Lu of course but Roger always says how nervous he gets for the first match of a big tournament so I suspect the first few games of the set will be a little dodgy (as shown by the break just now). Think he'll step it up a bit more now.

Rita

Is anyone else getting the impression that the crowd is a little anti-Roger? Very muted applause when he hits a winner or wins a game, but big cheers for Lu. I'm wondering if it's not so much the cheering for the underdog thing as the Murray controversy? :rolleyes:

That's our Roger :hearts:
