Needs to stay focused, construct the point smart, keep his UE count down and it should be ok. :yeah:

Beware of the GG backhand :scared:

Rogi said he will be wary of Gaston who has improved greatly on the fast surfaces. He also said that he will have to play very well vs. Gaston, so he is NOT underestimating him.

I woke up at 3 am here, in California, today, to get in practice for tomorrow as that is when Roger will take the court....TV coverage isn't until 16 hours later, but Interent rocks...
so good luck Roger,

Avocadoe, thanks for reminding me that Semi isn't live. I don't care to know the score before I watch the match. I blew it on the Coria match, but that didn't matter anyway.

Roger always builds up his opponents in advance - not only to not insult anyone, but to keep himself focused...but GG has improved since his Paris Gift, and he could have Roger running a lot w/his exc. bh-dtl. GG's a first-rate opportunist...he does his thing, but always stays near the Gift Horse Tree, should something fall...like Gonzo today...so, if Rog underestimates him...

Since it's not being broadcast live, I guess we can't have a thread to watch it together 'cuz someone will insist upon wrecking it...

but good luck rogi anyway! i'm torn between following the score online or holding off until i can actually watch it.:unsure: i think i'd go nuts not knowing, so i'll probably be around here biting my nails follwing the scores. stupid espn for not showing it live and solving my problem. :ras:

This may be tough, Gaston played very well today and Rogi will need to concentrate during the WHOLE match, which he hasn't been able to do in Shanghai so far... but he's getting better and better, so I'm sure Rogi will be ready to fight and win:D!!!

GOOOOOOOO FEDDDDDDDDD:banana:!!!!!!!

If Roger is any kind of rhythm then it will be a blowout. Only a big bag of errors can prevent Federer from going into the finals.

What a shocking match!!

Poor Guston... :hug: He tried his best. but his serve.... :o and Rogi rise his revel so much. :eek: Of course he didn't watch TV last night. :p and Guston played really tough match last night, so he isn't fit enough tonight.
Did you see Rogi's volley? He missed almost all forehand volley at RR but tonight... he never missed! Guston hit many good shots and did some amasing rally but Rogi's answer was just incredable. and his face! I believe he will play great again tomorrow. Rogi's foot work is getting much better. :woohoo:

Nocko
11-19-2005, 12:23 PM

Congratulations Roger, just one more to go! :banana: :banana: :banana:
Stay healthy, focus well. You can do it!!

I've been on the BBC tennis website where they didn't say much about Rogi's game, so am really thrilled to read Nocko's post about him being so focused ... they might as well hand the trophy over to him now! And to think those non-believers on the BBC site thought there might be another 2nd set collapse! :haha: :haha: I worship at the shrine of Roger Federer :worship: :worship: :worship:

Poor Gaudio...I feel so sad for him :sad:

But those dfs??? :sad:

Let the bashing in GM begins on Gaudio (how can he be a RG champion, disgrace etc etc) and Rogi (boring, killed tennis etc etc) :rolleyes:

It's not that Gaudio didn't try at all, he did make it to quite a few deuce on Rogi service game, but it's the usual Gaudio, he always needs some "kick start" to have the confidence and comfort that he can win the match or can play good...but today Rogi's just too solid.

Rogi, you threw away a set to Coria but not even a game to Gaudio? :(

But I'm happy to see how solid he is today, that's a good sign going to the final :D

Mrs. B
11-19-2005, 01:12 PM
Hi, lsy!

wow, Roger was on fire today, tactically he was just too good, (love his volleys with the perfect angles on the open court) and i think Gaudio didn't believe in his chances right from the start.

total match was only 49 minutes, Gaston making 9 df's and only 3 winners to Roger's 22. :eek: Roger has 16 ue's and Gaudio 22.

Poor Gaston... I agree w your comments here -- why so nice to the Weasel and not to sweet Gasti? I didn't realize I w be having bagels for breakie today, 3 actually, incl the one fr David -- well done, Nalby!

Nalby will think he has real chances to win this thing tomorrow as he is the only guy to really threaten ROGI.
;)

OK, now to go shopping... [beautiful weather in MCarlo for Albert II Monaco -- crappy weather for the Algarve golf tourney].

Rogi was over-wary of Gaston today and he made sure that he wasn't going to have his little 2nd set lapse!! ;)

They looked friendly at the net -- Gasti has respect for Rogi -- perhaps too much today [Nalby doesn't tho!].

I don't think it'll be a walk in the park for Rogi. But the fact that Nalby has a positive h2h record against Rogi doesn't mean shit right now. Rogi's beaten him the last 3 or 4 times they played. Hewitt once had a positive h2h record against Rogi too....

glad i didn't get up to follow the scores, i didn't miss too much.:shrug: please play well against nalby tomorrow rogi!!!! only one more match and you're done for the year, you can go and enjoy your vacation after the match, but please not during the match!! :o
