Roger's Junior Bio (http://www.itftennis.com/juniors/players/player.asp?player=10019424)

Click on the Activity tab to see all of his history. It's like the ATP activity page but you can view head to heads per match.

Interesting stats: Rogi made Oz semis, 1st Rd Rg, Wimbledon we all know how he did there ;) , US Open finals.

1-1 vs. David Nalbandian, 1-0 JC Ferrero, 1-0 Coria, 2-1 Jeanpierre (junior number 2).

:eek: Losses: Lopez 6-4 2-6 4-6 at a Swiss Clay event in the finals and Dent 6-7 6-4 3-6 at the junior grass warm up event in Britain before Wimbledon.

There it is folks. I think I covered all the interesting stuff but be sure to jot down anything that catches your interest.

Oh and I've missed you guys. :hug:

Roger lost to Taylor Dent & Feliciano Lopez? :lol: not anymore!

and he played a lot of doubles with Olivier Rochus. Jun Kato played also in the the same club as Roger in Basel.

Mrs. B do they have the junior clay event in Gstaad? I'm just wondering because the event is clearly after Gstaad. Curious about where it is played at.

the Allianz Swiss Juniors tournament last July was held in the Canton of Ticino in 3 different clubs (claycourt)

The European Junior Championship (18 & under) next July will be held in Klosters (by Davos)

Ok thanks. :yeah: It was the European Junior Championship final that he lost to Lopez. :sad: Oh well he more than made up for it with his Gstaad perforemance. Very underrated event in Federer's legendary year.

nice to see that the 16 yr old Roj was on top of it :) Interesting group...seems his clay play came along the slowest...2005 French Open Champ would take care of that :)
