Actually he had 2 great shots in that game, 1 running FH winner and the BH passing shot. He needs to serve harder than 113mph, he really has no firepower for some reason. Plz hold Roger, plz

Well the announcers are happier now that it looks like Roger will win. I agree with Cliff and Patrick though that it's tougher to ease your way into a masters series event then a grand slam. Because here you get decent players R1. At a GS often times you don't.

It cannot be tough. According to a certain poster here, small guys get intimidated by the opponent's size and choke. :lol:

Good luck to Roger. Calm down, people. It's clear that he was thrown onto the court right from the beach. This tournament is just a preparation for the big one in New York. He'll gradually get better.

He'll gradually get better.I know I'm over reacting. And Lleyton struggled today to, so I think it's really the lack of match play that's hurting them (and probably Safin too). Drysdale mentioned something about Tony Roche not being here. But I don't think that matters. Although they did mention that he's coming for the US Open which surprised me.

It's just no fun watching him play like this. I should've been doing something else instead.

Well, he finally did it... not surprised he got broken again before ending Kiwi's annoying run... now he has to go out and play his dbles after hardly any rest fr a grueling tough ugly match...

O Rochus will not be easy to beat either considering Rogi's lack of form but at least he's into R3... still not enough to provide a big enough cushion for points.

Keeping an eye on the guys winning here cos the results are quite different to those in Montreal...

Expected Winner:

I didn't say ALL small guys choke. I said that Coria and Gaudio choke....meaning NOT that they do every time, but they do a lot. OK? Example Coria loses to Verkerk in FO 2003, Coria looses to Roddick Miami 2004, Coria looses to Gaudio FO 2004. Gaudio looses to Rochus Hamburg 2005. etc.


What I had said was not some major deal putting down Nadal. I was just putting some perspective on things. Overall I think Federer has had to face tougher opponents than Nadal in his rise to the top (2003 - 2004). If there were more Grass tournaments and Federer could have made so many points playing ONLY on grass, it I would say the same thing there.

I was tiring to point out that competing in HC tourneys is tougher than clay because there is a tougher field of opponents that can play on HC. On clay there is a certain bunch of guys that focus a lot on clay and most of them happen to be smaller than Nadal. If you want to question the size factor.....imagine if Nadal were only 5'5". His reach wouldn't be as long and he'd have to work a lot harder to run down balls. Do you really think he would be dominating if he were smaller than Coria and Gaudio? I am sure Coria wishes he were 6'1". Don't you think Rochus would be higher ranked if he were 6'1" ?

If you are a Roger fan then why are you picking on me over this obscure issue? And by the way you were the one who said your English was not good in some other post when you were having trouble understanding the Entry Rank system's importance.

08-18-2005, 12:56 AM
Blah.., blah.. PamV, the way you are talking about Nadal only shows how concerned you are. You are like honey for bees, and bees are Nadal's fans.

I am not concerned at all about Nadal. I was simply trying to defend MYSELF from your nutty off base comments. You are the one picking on me over some minor comment. Is it off limits to make any observations at all on Nadal? I make observations on any player I like. If you want to keep on harping on it, I won't back down.

¡Chispas, que vaya a freir monos!

PamV
08-18-2005, 01:00 AM
Pam needs a chill pill. Roger will get better here match per match. He knows how tough Kiefer will be. Roger should beat Nadal and if he can't keep his errors in check vs him than he deserves to lose.

Mirkaland is the one who brought up the subject of the commentators saying if Nadal beat Federer in Cincy then he would be thought the best HC player. I was only agreeing with Mirkaland. Why are people jumping on my case over that? I thought we were all in agreement that those commentators were wrong.

TenHound

This is the worst prof. tournament I've ever seen. Injuries, layoffs & just no energy. They might as well be playing under water. It's not just Roger. I wonder if part of it is the empty stadium. It looked 98% empty today. (No surprise given the vicious war the elite has waged against the middle classes since '80.) That must be very enervating to play surrounded by a sea of emptiness.

Rogi better get enough rest for tomorrow... I don't care if it's Ollie Rochus. He needs to at least make the QFs.

Meanwhile Juanqui took the first set TB vs. Pandy but now they've split TBs... and the crowd is throwing off Juanqui on his serve... another lovely reason NOT to be in Cincy. :rolleyes:

RogiFan88
08-18-2005, 01:29 AM
I think if Rochus gives Rogi a hard time right off the bat, then Rogi could be in big trouble -- usually when a player [a top player] is struggling, dropping sets but making it thru fr the beginning of a tourney every rd, then I say that player will not win the title, let alone make the FINAL... so either Rogi wins this yukky TMS or just lose BEFORE the final.

Horna or Acasuso could pose probs for Rogi, let alone a big bruiser like Maraty or even Ginepri who is playing out of his tiny little mind lately.

I'm not in panic mode or anything, but he certainly has not played high quality tennis and there wasn't really anything in the Kiefer match that made me think his game was improving. I hope he plays better tomorrow. If they show the match live on TV tomorrow and Roger is sucking I'll turn it off. I'm not bailing on him by any means, but I don't need to watch him suck up the joint. There's more enjoyable things to do. :)

I wonder if they blew it on purpose, because with the heat and humidity, I don't know if it'd be wise from Rogi to play doubles as well in Cincinnati, and plus it was for match practice for Rogi and mainly for the DC tie. Now they have something to work on 'til then.

I think Roger is gonna be fine the next round. All the top contenders seem to be doing unwell here. Federer, Safin, Hewitt and Roddick all won in three sets. But in the end, they'll likely be the semifinalists. I hope so, and I hope Roger can dominate The Three Musketeers. :p

Good luck for his next match! He won against Oli easily in Miami, so I think he'll be able to do it in straights and with a comfortable score, possibly playing great.

Roger will likely win the event now. Kiefer was a toughie and Roger will get better as the event goes on. He should beat Rochus with not too much trouble. :lol: Roger was so funny today talking to Brad. He said " I'm looking forward to playing Rochus because we played together for a long time and he is fun to watch because he is small and cute." :lol:

Anybody checked out Pandy's record this yr. lately? Ranking system is really screwed up. The points you get should be weighted by ranking of player you beat. Pandy hasn't beaten anyone this yr. No one in Top 10, yet he's ranked #5. Whereas Roger has beaten AA -3, Hewitt - 2, Thuggy - 1, Coria(on clay) - 1, AR - 1 & Lubj when he was playing top 10 tennis & beat Pandy & AA. (On the other hand, he's playing far better than RF today, so he could take this dinky title if things don't change.) Seems weird to me that anyone should be Top 10, yet may not be able to beat 6-10. Or seems like you should have to play Top 10 players x times/yr. to keep yr. ranking. Yes, I know that sounds crazy, but it sounds equally crazy to be 5 when there's no evidence he can beat 6-10.

Realy :scared: An inform Rogi would be great, but Rogi is still very rusty, and if you saw Andys match he was serving 144 MPH all the time and hit with crazy power after the 1st set. I dont want Roger to play Andy when either 1 is not playing well, especially Roger.

I'm going briefly through this thread from where Roger started his match against Kiefer. And it seems everyone was getting crazy at him and swearing bullshit at him :lol:

Luckily, I watched the match from 3:2 in the 2nd set (when StarSports decided to show tennis:rolleyes: ) and probably just missed out the crappiest from Roger. I think he was already better than he was in his first match and his backhand has been working much finer for him, at least in the 3rd set, surely except for failing to serve out AGAIN leading 5:2 :mad:, so on the whole, I forgave him for another relatively shit match.

Am I being tolerant :p But let's give him some more time. Everybody, I mean the top guys, are all looking quite sloppy here, so I actually have good feeling about Roger. Do you remember last year Toronto where he actually played some of his worst tennis in the qf and semi but somehow delivered his close to best in the final? So just relax, my friends :wavey:

I have to agree with you Yanchr - I didn't see the match and couldn't get the livescores up for a while when I got home from work last night, and the way everyone was going crazy here when I logged into this forum, I thought Rog was almost 2 sets down and out for the count! When I realised it was the 1st set, I just thought "no worries" and had a cup of tea!! Kiefer is a v good player and gave Rog a bit of trouble on grass at Wimby! Its unrealistic to expect him to be at the absolute top of his form after a such a long layoff - we should all just have a bit more faith and patience.

My excuse is I still have the Wimbledon final on the brain, 'cuz that's the last time we saw him play. It's hard to go from seeing him nearly flawless to just average. Of course after a long break and on a different surface he couldn't just pick up where he left off after Wimbledon. But we were so treated to brilliant shot making there and not many UE's and it's bee quite different so far this week. I'm glad he's keeping a positive attitude though. And he knows he's just got to work through it and keep playing. I don't even care anymore how he plays tonight as long as he wins.

I agree. I didn't start watcing the match with Kiwi until the start of the 2nd set. Even so he was only down one break in the first set, it's not like he lost that set 1-6. I don't think it's a matter of your being tolerant, you are just taking things in stride. Which is what I am trying to do too.

Roger's only played Rochus once (in Miami 2005) winning 6-3, 6-1 at that meeting. They've played more in juniors.

Regarding the top guys looking sloppy.....I haven't been able to watch their matches except for a little of Safin. No matter what Safin looks like I always think he's dangerous because of how he matched up with Roger the last 3 times (Houston 2004, AO 2005, Halle 2005). Safin is the type who can be streaky but he seems to wake up and try his hardest when he faces Roger. :mad: It seems the way the draw is right now is similar to AO with both Roger and Marat in the top half and Hewitt and Roddick in the bottom half. Of course that's getting ahead and they still have to work to win the next couple of rounds.

The interview:



WESTERN AND SOUTHERN FINANCIAL GROUP MASTERS
CINCINNATI, OHIO

August 17, 2005

R. FEDERER/N. Kiefer
4-6, 6-4, 6-4

ROGER FEDERER

THE MODERATOR: Ladies and gentlemen, Roger Federer. Questions, please.

Q. How would you assess the way you played today?

ROGER FEDERER: Well, I was struggling in the beginning, obvious. I thought it was a pity, you know, I didn't get the first break, you know, at Love-40 in the first game. Right away, you know, I served bad. I think he jumped on top of me. So being down 2-Love, you know, was tough. And I was looking for the rhythm then and it was hard, you know, especially in the hot conditions. I had the feeling really the ball flies. So I was, yeah, I was a little disappointed, you know, about the start. And, yeah, he keeps coming at you, you know, and he didn't really allow me to get the rhythm either. But that I knew from the start. So the start of the match was crucial, and I couldn't get on top of him there. But still, you know, in the end, to turn it around, and not playing my best, is always a good feeling.

Q. Are you still struggling to find the rhythm that you talked about a few days ago?

ROGER FEDERER: Well, it was totally different conditions. I played a night session on Monday, then I played -- I was practicing last night late, too, you know. Of course before that I was practicing in the heat very much, you know, in Dubai, but also here. But, again, you know, it's so different, the conditions. So took me a while to get used to it; that's for sure.

Q. What's the most difficult thing after a long break to get back?

ROGER FEDERER: Hand-eye coordination. The explosiveness of your legs, you know. The way you read the game; I have the feeling that's missing most, you know. Then doubt suddenly creeps to your mind, you know, where you're not sure, "Should I go for the shot, or should I rather play it safe one more time?" When you're playing well, when you're confident, you don't think about those kind of things. So occasionally they come back to me, those moments. But that's always the case in the early rounds of a tournament, because conditions are new.

Q. Can you talk about returning his serve. You broke him three times in a row at the beginning of the third set. What you were doing, what you saw.

ROGER FEDERER: Well, I mean, I really wanted to make sure I get back as many returns as I could to, first, you know, to get the rhythm of the baseline; second, you know, to at least make him also hit more shots, and especially on the second serve. I think I started to do that really well from the second on. I didn't give him many easy points any more in the second serve. That's really what I wanted to do, and I'm happy that worked. He's not the biggest serve on the first serve either, so I always had the feeling I could get looks on his serve. But to break him three in a row is good.

Q. Just in general, returning serve, it's probably something people don't talk about a lot about your game because people focus on serving and ground strokes. Is that one of your strengths, something you obviously try to focus on, the ability to break anybody?

ROGER FEDERER: Well, I mean, I try to give myself chances, you know. The more chances you give yourself, eventually either they collapse or you hit a good shot so you get a little lucky, you know, whatever happens. But it's all about giving yourself chances. Obviously, they don't talk about my return because I'm not the returner who goes for it, you know, on the return. I go more for placement, and that doesn't look so impressive, you know. If you take for instance Marat, you know, who hits the ball, you know, the second serve, it's really different sort of return. But sometimes the results, they vary for both of us.

Q. Yet your quickness is so good that you can handle pretty much anything. Do you ever feel especially in the early rounds of a tournament that maybe that's just one of the big things you try to work on?

ROGER FEDERER: Well, I feel like now physically I can turn around matches where before I couldn't, you know. Either I didn't believe I could turn it around or I didn't know the importance of my footwork, you know, that when I really move well what a difference it makes to my game. I have the feeling here it's tough, you know, to play defense too much, you know, because once you're on the offense, you're in a pretty good position because the courts are quite quick. And especially in the heat, you know, it's tough. But, again, you know, it's about being focused, especially in the early points of the game, especially on your own serve, not to give your opponent too many looks at breakpoints and things.

Q. What do you have now that the other players don't have? What makes you No. 1?

ROGER FEDERER: Well, I think the opportunity, you know, to play on all surfaces. I've had a good clay court season. Grass has been fantastic over the last three years, you know. The hard courts, definitely improved on that, especially, you know, in the States where before I was struggling there, too. Indoors was always my favorite surface. So I've definitely shown that no matter what surface, you know, I can beat the best - or I am the best.

Q. Skills-wise, if we matched your forehand with everyone else's...

ROGER FEDERER: It's got nothing to do with that.

Q. What's the extra thing that you have?

ROGER FEDERER: Well, I think it's just the combination of everything. I mean, let's say my backhand or my forehand or my serve doesn't really stand out as much in my game like when you look at other players, you know? I think that's the dangerous part of my game, that I can adapt. If one thing doesn't work, I can switch to something else. That's what not many players can do today.

Q. Are you impressed with the young players who are coming through? We've got three 19-year-olds. One had a spectacular win last night. Did you see any of that match last night?

ROGER FEDERER: I left when Berdych was up a break 5-4.

Q. He played very well. We've got Berdych, we've got Nadal.

ROGER FEDERER: Yep. There's many, yeah. Absolutely.

Q. Monfils now, Gasquet.

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, as well. Yeah, well, I have the feeling not only are they knocking on the door, you know, to make the break, but they're also causing upsets. Sometimes, you know, you hear of them. Like with Gasquet, you know, in the beginning you heard much about him, you know. But then suddenly they come about very strong, you know. That's normally what happens to really big -- the good players, you know. They make the break and they can upset, you know. I did the same thing; Ferrero did the same; Roddick did the same; Marat. You know, you just see what potential they have, if they can, you know, consistently play well. I don't know how they gonna continue, like Murray and Monfils. They still haven't done that step like Nadal has made, you know, winning tournaments. Same with Berdych. We're waiting for his big break as well, you know. I was disappointed that he didn't play better after he beat me at the Olympics because I thought he's a - and I still think he is - good player. But I think you will always find new players in the game, but I think especially these times are very strong from the youngsters.

Q. You mentioned something about doubt sometimes if you're not playing well. The doubt now can't be the same as when you first started; you know that you're good enough to win.

ROGER FEDERER: Uh-hmm.

Q. Is that the difference? When you doubt yourself now, it's not a deep doubt, is it?

ROGER FEDERER: No, exactly. You're right. Before, you know, I would fall apart. After a first set like this, I would go, "It's impossible to play here," I would try to force the issue, you know, either panic and just run to the net and try to avoid playing baseline rallies. But now, you know, I force the issue that I better get that rhythm from the baseline; otherwise, I know I'll lose. I look at things very different. Like I said, physically, I have the feeling I can tell myself, "Look, do more, be more explosive." Physically it's not a problem to hang in there for three sets, you know. And it's a good challenge also because, I mean, how often do I lose the first set? For me, these are big matches, too, to get through because I know what could happen in the next round. It could be that I play fantastic and suddenly I'm through to the finals and there I've been unbeatable. So it's all about staying in the tournament for me.

Q. So you weren't worried when you lost the first set?

ROGER FEDERER: A little bit (smiling).

I hope you succeed in getting yourself out of the obsession. Roger will be fine, and it's not some Nadal who will change the fact that Roger is THE MAN in the tour :wavey:

No matter what Safin looks like I always think he's dangerous because of how he matched up with Roger the last 3 times (Houston 2004, AO 2005, Halle 2005).

Right on about Safin, but he also doesn't seem too positive. I have much doubt he will make semi. So I will just sit back and wait. BTW, Safin is on now, against Hrbaty. Yet to watch some tennis from him.

yeah I just read through the thread and you all are truly funny. Does it remind you of how we were in last year Toronto thread though? I think we were cursing at him left and right also, especially that match vs TJ...so much about "beautiful" tennis huh? :tape: :tape:

I was very worried about this match before but whatever it is, he pulled through and that's all it matters :hug:

and for the first time ever he went past 2nd round in Cincy FINALLY!!! :eek: :banana: Even his official site had a "New record for Cincy" as the main page title :lol:


Roger was so funny today talking to Brad. He said " I'm looking forward to playing Rochus because we played together for a long time and he is fun to watch because he is small and cute."

And he knows he's just got to work through it and keep playing. I don't even care anymore how he plays tonight as long as he wins.
So it's still his fault to have spoiled us with his usual brilliance. Even the commentators mentioned at one point today when he hit a backhand DTL out from one corner of the court way behind the baseline that, he has spoiled us with his shot-making in the last 18 months or so when he actually has made that kind of shots again and again :lol: Believe me, it's a very tough shot even for his level.

And I have doubt about your last sentence :lol: ;)

Yes, Marat, despite his knee injury, just wiped Hrbaty off the court today in short order... doesn't look like he's having many problems shaking off that rust even after spending time at the beach... Lleyton... not sure how he's doing at this moment but he's getting a ton of help fr Mario who's choking away the first set... as for Pandy, I'm disappointed that Juanqui blew his chance to get rid of him in that 2nd set TB... huge disappointment for me...

And I have doubt about your last sentence :lol: ;)You can doubt my last sentence, but if he starts out flat and totally off I will quit watching. I don't need to watch bad tennis no matter who is playing. I quit watching Hewitt today because Ancic was so bad it was no fun to watch. I'm guessing the Safin/Hrbaty was just as bad. Roddick has been playing well these last two matches. I expect him in the semis and probably the finals. Unless he plays Hewitt and just has a mental brainfart.

I just hope it won't rain tonight - there were enough rain delays already :( I don't think I'll ever like this tourney even if Roger wins it..
anyway good luck Roger you'll do it :yeah:

Yeah but thats part of being a fan, is getting through the highs and lows of your fav, complaining and cheering when he is playing. Clearly he is struggling and he knows he is but he is getting through. My only concern is him losing to Andy :o which I will never hear the end of
