Ron, if the Swiss team has to play Israel, where would your loyalty lie btw?

Try supporting the Swiss team these 2 days then they all had chances to win but really great fight from the Swiss players so far. I really hope they can win this doubles here. Fail to serve the match just now but coming back from 0-2 sets already is qutie amazing.

GOOOOOO!!!!!!

YES THEY BROKE AGAIN!!! Please just serve for it now!!! PLEASE!!!

I hope that too. Ivan has to run out of gas sometime, if he loses in 4th round to Roger, he can have his much needed rest and prepare himself for Miami :p

its a pretty good draw. Imo Roger is far more likely to be beaten by some total unknown like Minar in the first few rounds then the players he has played plenty of times before like Fish/Stepanek/Ancic.

Ljubicic will get tired eventually and imo his mind wont be on this tournament after last weekend.

By the way, some parts of the draw are not as hard as rogers
Safin and henman are easier
coria and hewitt are so so. could be a bit harder.... especially for guille
andy could have nicolai Davydenko or F Gonzalez or Rochus
Moya with pim pim....
gaudio has nalbandian (or viceversa)

And poor roger has all the checks (chez) and croatians... my poor baby
you will have to work hard here... do not mind for andy Pandy or kiwi lleyton and well a bit worried for the sar Marat, but he needs to be on focus and do not bet any dollar for 3 setter or tie breaks... he needs to be fresh!

Goooood luck

A bit worry silvy:worship:

or maybe ivan is so pumped up and optimistic he's relishing this potential clash w rogi for his revenge! mind you he'd have to beat his compatriot "doe" first!! nope, not the best draw for rogi but whatever... up to him to make the sf and beat probably marat to get to the final and win it again...

Oh, I have lost 6 pounds since The AO...I can now fit into my new bathing suit. :)
I think watching the scoreboards during Rogi's matches is better than a diet.

:fiery: Is it really a random draw? Roddick's ranking dropped and now he gets the easiest draw. :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

Draws are supposed to be random. But what were the odds of Ivan and Mario bumping into each other so early in the tournament. It's almost like a message " That's what you get for beating us." :ignore:

As for Roddick, he's gotten a lot of cushion draws lately. Lucky boy. :rolleyes:

lsy
03-09-2005, 06:26 AM
its a pretty good draw. Imo Roger is far more likely to be beaten by some total unknown like Minar in the first few rounds then the players he has played plenty of times before like Fish/Stepanek/Ancic.

I agree. yeah it's tough but then I looked at it like Wvy and it's not that bad.

Besides from QF onwards, you're supposed to have tough players already anyway. I hope he gets to play Nalby in QF this time.


Ljubicic will get tired eventually and imo his mind wont be on this tournament after last weekend.

oh you never know with this mad man these days ;)

Come on guys, it's not that bad, have faith in Rogi! He will deliver. I still r'ber one of his last tournament won (apart from slams) that made me really happy was Hamburg last year with the most brutal draw, so this is really quite nth comparitively.

Skyward

I wonder what Roger thinks about his draw. Is he really happy to get the hottest player on tour( Ivan), a" late bloomer"( Stepanek), two young players who gave him problems in the past( Ancic and Berdych), his nemesis ( Nalbandian), and the man who knows all the secrets ( Marat)?

Sure, Roger can beat them all, but the draw is tricky.

Just look at it from the other side ;) Will Ljubicic be really happy to meet Roger after three defeats in a row?

lsy
03-09-2005, 07:08 AM
Actually I wonder what Ancic and Ivan etc think about their draw...Rogi again ;)

I don't know I just looked at other 3 quarters, every top seeds have some tricky players in their quarters somehow. Novak, Gonzalez/J.Johansson can be very tricky for Andy too. Safin's quarter looks the least tricky to me.

Anyway when you moved on to QF/SF, there is not such thing as easy draw...of course unless it's *cough* Hewitt *cough* for Rogi :tape: :p

Besides I kind of like that Rogi will have some tough opponents in early rounds (and not some unknown players whom he seem to have more trouble with) and if he does make it to SF, he would be ready vs Safin ;)

SUKTUEN

Honestly, I'm not really worried about Ancic/ Ivan. They should be tired and drunk. ;)

I hear that Johansson is having problems with his shoulder, Gonzalez is probably tired from his efforts in Moscow against Safin and Youzhny, Novak is getting old and should not be a problem for Roddick on this surface.

I don't think rogi will like this draw. He probably wants to play against safin in the final, in front of a full house in centre court, instead of Hewitt/Roddick. :zzz:
And where's Nadal? can't find his name in the draw? I really want to see them play again, and see how will rogi revenge. Oh, it's been nearly a year since they last met. :rolleyes:

I just want to see Rogi playing a cleaner, more beautiful game, not like the "winning ugly" tennis he's been playing as of late... oops, sounds a bit harsh, doesn't it? That's how I feel right now...

Puschkin
03-09-2005, 05:18 PM
I just want to see Rogi playing a cleaner, more beautiful game, not like the "winning ugly" tennis he's been playing as of late.

I don't agree on the "winning ugly", he is changing his game to be even more agressive by charging the net more often, he is not yet fully there, or the surfaces played on recently, don't support it, probably both. In this interim period, he doesn't look as certain or settled as he was last year and this may look "ugly", but don't forget: we are all a little bit spoiled after what he showed in 2004.

Skyward
03-09-2005, 05:23 PM
I think Roger passed that stage when he tried to play "beatiful" shots all the time. Tennis players don't get titles and points for artistic impression.

RogiFan88
03-09-2005, 06:17 PM
well, actually Rogi really can't play or win "ugly" -- leave that for other players... he doesn't have to play beautiful shots "all the time", just once in a while will satisfy me... since I hopefully will be able to see him on TV for I Wells!

Truly, "ugly" is not a word to describe Rogi in any way... it's my mood today I guess... overworked and insomniac...

INTERVIEWS
An interview with:


ROGER FEDERER

THE MODERATOR: Questions for Roger Federer .

Q. Can you explain how you started this program with the ATP this evening, speaking with UNICEF, too.

ROGER FEDERER: I've been asked at the Australian Open , prior to the Australian Open , what I'll be doing more for tsunami or in general. I said, well, I was ready to basically play any match, any exhibition match. So I thought I had kind of an idea, and I saw, many of the players did many things themselves with the tournaments, auction, racquets, shirts, everything. I thought maybe we should do something, you know, together.

I spoke to I think one of the ATP guys, and I told him, you know, we should maybe do that and consider that in the future. They right away thought that was a brilliant idea, and they started to work extremely hard.

So definitely thanks a lot to the ATP and Charlie Pasarell already being able to do it here, because I thought this was too close of a date to do it, you know, because you've got to call all the individuals, you know. To come together is maybe not the easiest thing in tennis. To get the Top 10 all committed to tonight is for me fantastic, so I'm very happy.

Q. Do you think if you are together, there is more synergy, it's more important because you are together?

ROGER FEDERER: Uh-huh, yes, because how often do you see the top, you know, play within an hour or two? I thought, of course, you cannot make it five-setters or anything, you know. You have to keep it short but intense. That is something I sometimes miss in tennis.

You always have to wait so long into the draw until you really see the top players, except if you go and look at the practice courts. But there it's not the same. Now having the fans involved and being able to see, you know, all the best, just in a short time, you know, I think it's very nice. And this for a good cause, I think this should go beyond this just tonight. I hope we can keep a good thing going.

Q. You played with Andre on the top of the hotel in Dubai . How was the feeling?

ROGER FEDERER: It was very nice. It was one of the most incredible experiences I've ever lived through as a tennis player. It was definitely a thrill. I was nervous in the beginning, you know, even though I knew it was a thousand percent safe. We had a good time up there. With Andre , first time in Dubai . I've been there many times, defending champ. I thought the chemistry was right. It was really a lot of fun.

Many people saw it. I've been asked many, many times, you know, how it was up there. I even heard that, you know, some guests or some people went up to there and said, "Well, I'd like to go and play tennis."

They said, "We don't have a court."

They said, "We know you have a court."

They said, "It's gone. It's a heli pad."

It's funny, you know.

Q. You were in South Africa . Can you speak about your South African side in your heart?

ROGER FEDERER: Well, my mom's from there. I've been going there many times as a kid for vacation. So last time I was there was four years ago, and now last week.

We don't have much family left in South Africa , but I also went down there, you know, for vacation as well, but also for my project that I support with my foundation. You know, maybe people saw the pictures on the website and all this. It was very interesting to see how those people live to get just a point of view of what they are going through. That actually may help where I really want it to get, to the kids for a better education, being able to eat properly.

I support 30 kids down there. It was very emotional, I have to say. This gives me a lot of, I don't know, motivation to do more for such people.

Q. After the success of 2004, how have you really approached 2005? Do you think there's a little more pressure on you this year to try and reproduce what you did in 2004? Do you also think that the start of this year, with the Australian Open loss and some very close matches at other tournaments, made the rest of the pack catch up a little bit or is it too early to say that?

ROGER FEDERER: If I want to repeat what I did last year, I've already messed it up. Got to win the French or the next three. So we'll see, you know (smiling).

You know, I want to stay No. 1 in the world. I'm No. 1 in the race again, so that's exactly the position I wanted before the American hard courts. One point away from being in the final. So it was very close. It's not like I lost in straight sets and had no chance against Safin . Then, you know, you could wonder. But the way the match turned out, you know, for me it was quickly forgotten. The reaction was good. You know, I agree, there were some close matches.

But the finals against Ljubicic in Rotterdam , he played a great match. I was really struggling with my rhythm in the beginning of Dubai . But that's how it is. Still, you know, hang in the tournament. I'm very happy that I won back-to-back titles again.

So I'm feeling good. Everybody expected me to win the Australian , I know that. But it's not as easy to do, you know. Had one little foot injury, and that cost me the title. That's how quick it can go. This is why going for four is just not something I'm aiming for.

Q. You mentioned Ljubicic . Imagine that you're that tall, and you played with him recently a couple of times in some tournaments, how would your game be if you were that tall?

ROGER FEDERER: How?

Q. He's a tall guy.

ROGER FEDERER: He's a tall guy, yes.

:lol:

Q. Imagine that you're tall like he is. What would be your game? How is it for you playing somebody that tall?

ROGER FEDERER: Well, I would probably play different, you know. I'm as big as I am. I've got to live with that. I'm happy, you know (smiling). Not much I can change there.

I think, you know, the tall guys, they definitely have the advantage on the serve, maybe less on the movement. It's very simple. So I would be a different player. Same if I would be small guy. You know, I would have to be extremely quick, you know, maybe very tough mentally. I don't know. I don't -- actually never ask myself that question.

Q. Do you prepare differently for the heat in this environment?

ROGER FEDERER: To be honest, not really, no. Just get used to it, you know, during practice. We play enough times in the heat, some smaller events that we don't play any more, challengers and satellites, they've been played at 55 degrees. You know, we're lucky actually we're playing in a period of time at the places where actually you can handle it.

I mean, I had a sunstroke after Indian Wells last year, but that was after the final, so it came at the right time. No, I don't really prepare. You just have to get used to it. Make sure you drink enough, all those things. But those are simple.

Q. Ivan Ljubicic is playing very good. How do you see his chances to win the big tournaments like this one or maybe the Grand Slam ?

ROGER FEDERER: Well, I mean, the way he's playing right now, you know, he's on the right track. But you got to win titles, you know, and he didn't do that so far this year. I mean, I was in the way three times.

You know, as soon as he's going to start winning them, we will see what he's made of. So far he hasn't, so... He's a good player. He's definitely a threat to all the big guys, we know that. But it's consistency we need to see now.

Q. What is your coaching situation? Are you still working with Roche at all?

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, still the same. Haven't seen him since Australia . Probably will see him after Miami .

Q. How did you suffer a heat stroke after the tournament? You said you had a sunstroke after Indian Wells last year.

ROGER FEDERER: Hmm-hmm.

Q. The tournament was over.

ROGER FEDERER: How should I explain? I think the pressure was off, you know. Maybe my immune system shut down and it got to me. I don't know.

Anyway, the following Monday I was not feeling good, and for four or five days after that. My preparation for Miami wasn't the best. But I'm happy it came after the tournament and not during a semifinals or anything because that would have been impossible to play with the sunstroke.

Q. Use sunscreen.

ROGER FEDERER: We'll see. Does that help? I'm not sure.

(Or wear a cap...yes it does help :o )

Seems ESPN is getting trained that they Must show Roger...no lead in w/Americans...Roger is their first match of this tournament.

This is standard early Rog fare...everything a bit off as is the case when one's opponent doesn't rate full concentration. The fun of the match, for me, is how Mardy Fish's sluggishness highlights Roger's remarkable quickness. I guess it's more fast twitch muscle fibres, but it's entrancing to watch - & something we take for granted when we see him play other top players.

No, AFAIK Roger has not played him yet. But he did take out Agassi in Washington and gave a pretty good fight to Hewitt in the final there so he is not to be sneezed at. Big lefty guy with the swinging lefty serve and heavy forehand. Roger needs to be on his toes for this one.

These people have great taste :D

#Let's give a "his" and "hers" Player of the Week award. The "his" goes to Roger Federer, not for winning a match but for hosting the ATP All-Star Rally for Relief in Indian Wells, Calif., which raised $18,282.76 for UNICEF. The "hers" goes to Kim Clijsters, who looked awfully sharp in her first few matches in the desert. Tennis is better off when she is playing.

HOPEFULLY WAS JUST A SMALL PROBLEM-
LOVE YOUR NEW AVATAR,, SO OPOSSITE TO ROGER'S GESTURES TODAY, WAS QUITE SERIOUS OR IS JUST MY IMPRESSION
HE "ALMOST" LAUGHT AT SOME POINT NOT SURE WHAT WAS HAPPENING BUT MAYBE THE BALLBAY RUNNING OR SOMETHING SIMILAR, -- AS I SAID, ALMOST, HE WAS TOO SERIOUS... OR MAYBE THE SUN ON HIS FACE PUT THAT "IM NOT RELAXED" FACE

I think he will, in fact I am sure he will, Ron. Although Muller had some good shots, Roger seemed to have a pretty easy time on court today. He was never in any real danger.

It's possible they'll change the match order, their broadcast schedule, or best bet broadcast Roger's later in the evening- if we tell them we don't care if they broadcast his match live, we stand a fair chance..........if they get hounded enough!!

Yeah hopefully fourth time wont be the charm for Ivan. Good luck Rogi :bounce:

I watched Ivan/Berdych match a bit. Ivan looked tired but of course never expect that to affect the big man's performance too much. He is really an iron man.

Not good performance from Roger :p but enough to win against Muller :D At some moments I almost fell alseep again :p

Ivan is unlucky to meet Roger 3 times this year already. Tomorrow will again be an unlucky day for him I hope :p :bounce:

So anybody nervous for tomorrow? I know I am :help:

That damn saying "if you knock at the door enough times, it will open sooner or later" keeps echoing in my ears now out of nowhere :mad: It's time to get the chocolate out methinks.

Roger spoke of Ljubicic,
"His results are wonderful, however, he is yet to win a title. His 4 final appearances this year came at smaller tournaments. He must show what he's got at Grand Slams or Masters Series Tournaments. Maybe he manages at Indian Wells or Key Biscane a breakthrough."

Ljubicic spoke,
"Reaching final for 4 times so far is a wonderful result, especially that I lost 3 times to Roger Federer and once to Joachim Johannson, two of the best indoor players of the world. I was so close to beat Federer at the final in Dubai. I don't think that people regard those 4 defeats at finals as my weakness."

(Source, SFdrs)

Sorry for my poor translation. :help:

Mulller was not an interesting opponent for you but Ljubicic will be. Don't be so sick of getting him, just do it again, ROGI :) All the best luck :angel:

Hopp Rogi, please play your best tennis today and win in 2 sets!!! :bigclap:

Rogi will really have to step it up vs. Ljubicic tonight cos Ivan won easily over Berdych altho I have no idea how either was playing... and Rogi struggled a little yesterday... even tho he won 63 62, it took longer than the scoreline suggests.

And IVAN will have revenge on his mind, once again... the crowd will probably be for him too...

One thing I noticed after Rogi beat Mardy, was the big appluase and s/o he got... unusual I thought cos when he won IWells last yr, the crowd reaction was rather muted imo...

HOPP, ROGI!!! You must beat Ivan in straights cos you're the last one playing today.

If Ivan was so tired, why did he beat Berdych so easily??

LOVE your avatar Rogifan!!! Everybody here had changed their avatar to non-rogi....finally I see 4 rogi from yours :banana: :banana:

Actually most of Rogi matches these days, you always have the crowds cheering louder for his opponents (especially when they were down) but each time after he won, they always gave him big and warm applauds. But I thinkt he crowds in Rotterdamn really like him though, they cheered for him all throughout :lol:

Yeah... I wonder that too.. Allready in rotterdam they said that Ljubicic would be very tired... and he came there in the final, and in Dubai later on too and the Davis Cup he played again very good. So I assume that he'll be fit this time too...

btw: nice avatar :)

I think Rogi will pull it out.
I also think he will bring his A game..maybe his A++ game. I hope so.

I also hope it doesn't come down to another *fan heart-attack match*.......
Hopp, Rogi....... :bounce: :bounce:
