Yeah I think Federer will pull out. I also think Soderling will pull out. Heard he already has. On the other hand Sod can't gain any points. Maybe Fed can

After seeing this Draw, Federer might pull out, he could face Tommy Haas in Round 2!

:lol:, great stuff. Well I'm looking forward to see how Hewitt will be doing, hopefully fine, but not TOO fine. ;)

If Federer plays, it probably won't be pretty. Federer is in top form and Hewitt has absolutely no form/matches under his belt.

That would be something to laugh about! :lol:

The RG final might not be finished sunday. So thereţs a chance Roger won't play in Halle.

He usually asks for a late start on Tuesday, or even Wednesday. I don't see the RG final getting postponed that far.
The only risk of him not showing up over there is if he actually manages to WIN RG. A small chance, but he's done it before - and didn't show up at Halle thereafter because of too much partying. :p

this sucks..what an unfair draw for lleyton if roger actually manages to play, i mean..you'd think they would make sure that this didnt happen to early..and lets not pretend they couldnt if they wanted too

MaxPower
06-04-2011, 01:06 PM
no they shouldn't rig the draws just to get hewitt on the other side. WTH? I think Federer really want to make the match just to take Hewitt out in easy 3 sets to prove that old Fed > old Hewitt

If Federer plays then it`s really tough for Hewitt.Playing first match for a long period of time,he surely needed a good draw to get a few matches under his belt and get used to it.Now he just has to hope that Federer doesn`t play or doesn`t put much into this event.
What sucks though for Hewitt is that with his typical luck this could easily be a R1 match at Wimbledon.Wouldn`t surprise me a bit if he has to play Federer,Nadal or Djokovic in first round

You're all forgetting that Rogie signed a lifetime contract/agreement to play Halle for the rest of his career.

Rogie has to play in Halle until he retires.

I don`t think he is obliged to play Halle.I think it has to do with the fact that he either plays this tournament before Wimbledon or he doesn`t play any at all.
If he plays tough matches at the end of RG it`s tough to expect him to give it a go next week.

The RG final will not finish on Sunday.
And not because of the weather, mind you.

The organizers will have a brainiac decision and schedule the final to start at 7pm in the evening.

If Fed plays, he'll win easy.

Also means, that no Aussies will be in the top 100 - apart from 3 weeks in 2009, when has that ever happened?

Fedex gonna play here and gonna win with Hewitt.

Haas gonna win with Seppi and it's gonna be a nice classic match in Halle in R2.

Typical Hewitt draw luck :lol: Funnily enough his fans are not among those who whine about draws incessantly, though they are among few who'd be perfectly justified

Fedex gonna play here and gonna win with Hewitt.

Haas gonna win with Seppi and it's gonna be a nice classic match in Halle in R2.

:sobbing: Well, Seppi is winnable perhaps

Can't see Lleyton winning this time! :p

Will be good to see him back on court though.

Fed has pulled from Halle before, in 2007 and 2009

so he could do it again, a shame coz its a great draw :lol: he's played Haas many times here as well, 2 semis

Federer will probably pull out

Did not he make a contract last year that he will play this tournament every year till he retires?

I think he can not pull out the very next year

theseth1119
06-04-2011, 07:38 PM
Yes, indeed he did sign such a contract last year and actually the tournament director thinks he'll be there playing through 2015 when he's just shy of 34-years-old. It's not such a big deal really, whether he wins or loses in tomorrow's FO F he won't be playing until either Tuesday night or most likely some time on Wednesday and then since he'll likely win this event next Sunday (June 12th), he'll then have a week off competitively to prepare for Wimbledon.

Hewitt and his draws... I mean.. sometimes it gets just ridiculous.
He had Nalby and Gonzo at AO 1Rs, had Roger in 3-4 rounds about 3 times for last 3 years being seeded, Rafa in 3rd round at RG'09. So about 6 funny draws of his last 10 GS played.
That one's not too significant and Roger may probably not play but it still fits the picture.

Good for Fedclown that he'll probably be playing a few washed up mugs to kick off his grass "season".

What a joke the biggest tune up events of the grass season (Queens and Halle) both start the week immediately after Roland Garros.

The ATP are really retarded. There should be a week in between. :stupid:

Yeah he has some of the worst luck I've ever seen with the draw. And regarding Rafa at RG, he drew him in later rounds in 2 years as well, pretty unlucky

I feel so bad for Hewitt. He will fall far out of the top 100 if he loses this match. I think he needs it too much to lose. He has to beat Roger here.

it's RG's responsibility to finish on time, Federer should not be forced to pull out of here because he's still playing in RG

that being said they can still make it work with Federer's first round on Wednesday, that means they have 3 days to get the RG final in, they should be able to do so

lol@last years finalists meeting in R1. has that ever happened before?

First I thought it had already happen to Roger and Jarkko once after having met in the final of Basel that they had to play in the 1st round the year after. But I checked and saw it was actually a 2nd round meeting so it doesn't count.

What a joke the biggest tune up events of the grass season (Queens and Halle) both start the week immediately after Roland Garros.

Exactly.

Last year Söderling and Berdych withdrew from Halle after going deep in Paris. Roger wouldn't have missed Halle in 2009 if there would be a week between RG and the start to the grass tournaments. (I can't really refer to grass as a season with the few tournaments they play ;) )


We have to wait and see how the RG final will go on. Even if it would get finished today I expect Roger not to play in Halle before Wednesday.

He and Lleyton respect each other a lot and therefore I think he would like to play against his old rival and "take revenge" for the loss in the final last year. There's also the chance for a match against Haas in the 2nd round then which might be the last time that Roger and Tommy could actually meet on the ATP tour.
