lol... he probably told them he would play with the person who no one else picked... as to not distress mirka ;)
theres no really good reason for him playing with jenn, id much rather see him play with venus or maria... but he might even win it with jenn.

Yeah! I hate Capriati too esp after her comments on US troops to Iraq! What a typical American she was! I'm disgusted! btw, I hope she won't get a chance to hug Rogi! She's harmful and might break Rogi's bones! ha ha ha

What were her comments rogicomel? I think its good that he is playing with Jenn, wish it was hingis but......

I might sound emotional here but what I read about her comments were unbelievable. She was full of support of US invasion of Iraq (sorry I can't remember every single word she said). I was upset to see someone would be so happy to see Iraqis children being orphans just for the sake of oil or to save the face of their moronic President. It just told how inhumane she was...
I have never been her fan before but not a hater either but reading the article has changed my view on her completely. I appologise if I hurt any nice American here. I just dislike her, not the Americans. btw, my favorite band is Creed which is from Florida. :rolleyes:

Dirk
12-04-2003, 03:26 PM
Oh boy where to start. :rolleyes: In your country did they report to you that an estimated 300,000 people (including women and children) were filled in 263 mass graves? That figure was given by the Iraqian people. Oh and did you see how many children were freed from prisons and how many happy parents there were to finally get their children back? Our president and Blair enforced UN resolution 1441 and Saddamn didn't comply fully and so the war ensued. We didn't go there for oil and if we did only care about oil we never would have placed sanctions on Iraq. We just would have bought the oil from him with no regard to our nor our allies security. Another thing there are countries out there with oil who we do not purchase from because of their horrible treatment of humans. I am so sick of people like you Rogicoml who have no idea of reality and see Bush as Evil and don't realize that we liberated 24 million people and oh as for the WMDs, The David Kay report showed so many pieces of evidence of Saddamn funding and building WMD programs long after 98. We are only 10% of the way through his weapons cache so we may find them or find out what happened to them after all. There is also plenty of new information of al quadia (sp?) meeting with Iraqian officials last October. You need to educate yourself some more Rogicoml. I don't know where your from but Bush and Blair are taking and important first step to security from the evils of the middle east. An new democratic Iraq will spell doom for Iran and Syria and other hostile opressive nations.

Mrs. B
12-04-2003, 04:15 PM
:rolleyes:

think $87 billion funding request, a hefty reconstruction and military cost.

betcha the US taxpayers are happy about this.




anyway, let's stick to the tennis theme here...

Dirk
12-04-2003, 05:19 PM
um We didn't make Germany and Japan repay us for rebuilding them so why should we do the same for Iraq? Oh and since your new to this Mrs B since Swiss has done nothing to make the world an safer place, let me ask you over time Germany and Japan's relationship with us and the rest of the world...hasn't that now surpassed the price we put into rebuilding those countries. Oh and if you so concerned about our rebuilding costs, why doesn't Swiss put up a lot of money? I love how you put an price tag on freedom and peace for Iraq and seem to imply its not worth it. I love you so called Humantarians. :lol: The topic was the focus on the US causing the people of Iraq horror and I was simplying punching holes in Rogicoml statements as I don't need to punch holes in her head as they are already there.

I thought you were smarter than that Mrs. B. I just hope Roger isn't as dumb as his two fans here when it comes to this topic but I am sure you don't get the whole story from news sources in your country.

Oh yeah.... freeing Iraqis ppl by bombing their houses/country? I have never been a supporter of Saddam Hussin becoz he's no different to Bush but I think the best thing to do is leave the country to it's own ppl. Let them decide on who they want to be their leader. Enuff of interference, I just hate colonialism.

MAKE LOVE, NOT WAR!

Anyway, it's off topics so it's best to stick to Rogi's discussion.

Dirk
12-05-2003, 12:36 AM
Rogicoml you clearly are the same stupid skank you were before my posts. You learned nothing. Colonialism is when another country goes somewhere and builds onto an new part of an country for them to run. We are establishing an democracy of their choosing assclown. They will run it not us, we did the SAME THING IN GERMANY AND JAPAN!!!!!!!!!!!

As for us destroying their homes. Some were destroyed but most of our attacks were aimed and targeted at their bases and leadership. We didn't carpet bomb the place; we used precision guided missiles. Oh and for the record most of them are happy we are there. Bush and Blair liberated them and you two stupid skanks need to read up some more and learn about some history.

Bush is the same as Saddamn? Clearly your very :retard:

If we were to leave now Syria and Iran would move and it control it for themselves. We are there to make sure no dictator ever rises in Iraq again. Truman Roosevelt and Churchill had similar critics. Stupid socialist skanks is what you two are nothing more. A real shame. :sad:

rogicomel
12-05-2003, 01:01 AM
Oh man, how do we stop this! I don't want to see Rogi's forums become full of hate and accusations. We are all entitled and free to think what what we want to but I won't change my mind even tho I've been called stupid twice by someone I used to respect!

Dirk
12-05-2003, 01:29 AM
your the one who brought it up. You are free to think what you want and no you won't change not till you grow older but your lack of intelligence and ignorance on this matter is very disturbing. Make love not war, typical peacenik crap that sounds nice but has no logic to it. 24 million are now able to build an future for themselves and you attack Jennifer cause she supports our troops. I know you don't understand cause in Swiss they don't have troops for anything and have no importance of bringing peace to the world but sometimes in life Rogicoml you need war in order to have peace. Think about it, if Saddamn was not removed by the USA when would they ever have their own country? Saddamn's sons would have taken over the reign after he died and the people don't have enough power to do it themselves; they tried it once before and it failed sadly. You want peace and love in Iraq then war was the only thing left. The fact that your upset cause war is not pretty and some damage is done to innocent people and not going to war and letting more mass graves being filled is just really insane and is an direct contrast to your loving peaceful positions. There wasn't much LOVE!!!!!!!!!!! as you put it in Iraq before the war now there is an light in the end of the tunnel. Iraq will be theirs shortly and they don't have to repay us back with money they will make off of oil, Bush fought hard for the bill to have the clause in it.

If you don't respect me fine, excuse me for trying to educate you. Oh and just to piss you off, I hope Roger and Jenn clean house. :p

My dear friends,
I really think that subject only will carry everybody gets her bored. I worked on the Brazilian Government 40 years and took part in campaigns for Presidente's Election. You do not imagine what it runs behind that really comes to the public knowledge. It is obviate that as American, Brazilian, swiss, Italian and everybody the rest should have their opinions about that fact. However I guarantee you that we common people that we do not have access the confidential information neither we imagine what happens in the side-scene of politics. times is everything very sad. Now I guarantee you that in neither a subject of much gravity, only there are innocent of a side and alone bandits from other side. what it really inconveniences us common population, so much of the USA as of Irak is that has many mothers losing sons in the war, so much of a side as of another.
Now it also is true that Middle East always was a bomb to explode at any time and for lots of factors and not only (?????????????) by the terrorism and yes by the disturbed situation that always had in that region.
Sorry me enter this discussion but I could not avoid.
Million of kisses, much fondness and love to all. Beth

Kisses for you Dirk :smooch:

Dirk
12-05-2003, 10:11 AM
Beth actually we do have access to certain information in our country about details about the what is going on in our country, some just don't see it or don't take the time and energy to research it. Certain info is public and certain info is not as to protect sources working in the intelligence agencies.

War is ugly and I know most think its unruly and unnesscary but at times it is the only thing that will bring an better tomorrow. The fact that these two ladies want to bring up the negatives that the US caused Iraq which is so tiny compared to the horror that 30 years of Saddamn's leadership brought to that country is insane and shows their ignorance. I am sure the neutral Swiss would never utter such crap during WW2 because it was only an matter of time till the Axis of Evil made that climb up those mountains and brought the same fate to them as they did to other parts of Europe.

Oh and Mrs. B I know your from Swiss. Rogicoml I have no idea where your from but Mrs. B I got news for you. Your not safe, your country is not safe from terrorism either. Just because Swiss is an appeasing country doesn't mean the terrorists are going to bypass you. Your weakness is in the world only makes you all the more enticing to them. They just want to focus on the big boys on the block first before they come after the little helpless babies. The UN tried to keep their distance from the US in Iraq and didn't want us to guard them and was playing the nice peacemaker and were handing out food and you know what honey, they got their asses blown up. Then they ran the hell out of there all according to the terrorists plan. So trying to play it neutral won't help your country. The terrorists love non moving targets, makes their job easier.

Now go roll your eyes on that one stupid skank cause we all know there is nothing beyond them.

12-05-2003, 05:21 PM
Enough of this guys! Dirk, keep the politics out of this! It's only a harmless exo anyway that's meant to be FUN for the players AND the spectators... Rogi is pretty apolitical anyway... and sometimes these young players say things they probably s not...

I'll leave it at that, OK?

Can we all be friends again... Christmas sure does bring out the "good will to all men" spirit, doesn't it?!! :rolleyes:

Of course we all have our differences -- it w be a dull world if we all thought alike -- let's agree to disagree... but NO insults, pls!

bethbrasil
12-05-2003, 05:36 PM
My Dear Dirk,

I see what you answered and agree with you. that the world public opinion happens thinks the USA could do better than is doing. The power and the economic force of the USA make all of them cover besides their real possibilities. And even if the USA could do better I have almost certainty that Irak was going to continue with the terrorist attacks in the region. All of them ask the impossible to who detains more force. I imagine what GOD owes of have to impossible requests of have attended by who is asking))))))). Sorry.
Milhões de beijos, muito carinho e amor. Beth :wavey: :wavey: :wavey:

#!@& Bush, he's a moron! Let's get back to talking bout Rogi, k?
PEACE!

Dirk
12-05-2003, 09:06 PM
Of course there will be more terrorists attacks. They are all going into Iraq cause they think if they take enough lives we will cut and run, but Bush is not Clinton and will not leave till Iraq is stable and recently we have been hunting down and killing alot of them. Roger is able to avoid to be political when it comes such things since his country is not active in solving terrorism. I am sure Swiss looks out for terrorists coming into Swiss but they don't take the battle to them. As for the world opinion Beth, if they are so fucking concerned about us doing an better job maybe they should send him troops and pony up some money to the effort. Any asswipe can sit back and comment but it takes real action to help solve problems in Iraq. Spain, Poland, Italy, and soon Japan are the only ones doing anything in Iraq. Netherlands I read are sending troops in soon. France, Germany, and Russia won't do anything since their oil field deals with Saddamn went up in smoke.

Dirk
12-05-2003, 09:09 PM
Iza your yet another stupid skank.:retard: So Bush is an moron huh? I guess you would think differently if you were living in Iraq, but hey it would take too much brain power to put yourself in that position.

Lindsayfan
12-05-2003, 10:54 PM
what'w wrong with being in favour of the war? what's wrong with expressing opinions? I'm totally against the war,but I dont feel I have to condamn Jennifer or someone else for expressing their opinion.I prefer to hear a wrong opinion than hearing a "no comment" which sounds to me totally fake...

jtipson
12-05-2003, 11:14 PM
I think it's fine for players to express their opinions on any relevant topics, especially where it shows an understanding of the world beyond tennis. However, like all folk in the public eye, they do have to be careful. I can certainly understand that fans may have strong reactions to any such statements that players may make.

However, what I find unacceptable, Dirk, is someone launching into a foul-mouthed, political tirade against people in this thread that have merely expressed opinions in the first place. Whilst you're quite entitled to your strong views, it would be nice if you would accept that not everyone sees the world the way you do, and treat them with some respect.

Anyway, I'd prefer not to have a heavy political discussion in a forum dedicated to Roger Federer.

Let's get back to tennis, please!

So who thinks Ferrero and Sharapova will be a crack mixed-doubles team?

rogicomel
12-06-2003, 12:25 AM
Oh and just to piss you off, I hope Roger and Jenn clean house. :p

:haha: Ha ha ha!!! I’m pissed off! I really am! :haha: :haha: Naaah.. seriously Rogi can do whatever he wants to with Capriati but that won’t change anything. I won't stop loving Rogi and disliking Capriati and that’s it!

To Dirt, thx but no thx for ur ‘war education’. My brain will take at least a decade or maybe a lifetime to digest what u had taught me (excuse me, I’m very slow in this ‘subject’!). I was just wondering how could someone more matured do :nerner: to me, a sweet and naïve young girl! Ha ha ha! :lol:

Seems like we’ve taken this matter way too far and I supposed it’s me who should stop it! I apologized for bringing up the issue but I think it’s good to hear other ppl’s view on this.

I believe since we’re all coming from different places with different values, backgrounds and things like that, we hold different views on many things, maybe most everything but we’re here for one I repeat ONE REASON: ROGER FEDERER! That’s the only thing that matters here and I hope it’s enuff to keep us together! :bounce:

12-06-2003, 02:45 AM
well she's 16... so that's prolly not a good idea.

i just hope we can all get along... it seems that you have to recognize that the united states was/ has been presented with a very difficult situation, and it's impossible to be perfect and to please everyone in the world. you cannot break any dishes if you never wash any. how easy would it be for mr. bush to sit back and just "let things happen" in iraq? the people of iraq needed mr. bush to have balls, something very few other leaders in the world have, apparently. most countries who criticize the united states for trying to benefit from the iraq situation BLATANTLY disregard the number of countries who benefitted from saddam husein's reign over iraq. have gas prices gone down in the united staes? no. people don't realize that this was a lose lose situation, and instead of giving credit , americans who are dieing and fighting for someone else's freedom are criticized... how idiotic...

Dirk
12-06-2003, 03:32 PM
Finally an post with some logic. :wavey: faboozadoo

People are allowed to have their views but rogicoml is very pissed off at Jennifer for supporting her troops and the liberation of 24 million people, I don't take that lightly. Your entitled to be stupid and ignorant rogicoml. As for Bush being an moron, well unlike Romania since our president is the leader of the most powerful country, what he does internationally really matters. He is not able to just be an bystander in the background of the affairs of the world like your president is able to do. You should consider yourself lucky that another country is fighting for your way of life and your peace.

I can't wait for 5 or more years down the road when Iraq is the shining crown in the middle east cause of its new founded democracy and Iran and Syria and teetering on the edge of an revolution in the name of democracy. The only way to stop terrorism is for countries to put an end to these school and camps that feed people Anti West and train them to kill in the name of Aila and so they can go to heaven to **** 72 virgins.

I be happy to go back to Roger. Oh and my posts were filled with more than just foul-mouth tirades. They included some very important facts when it came to dissecting the anti war socialists.

Kody
12-06-2003, 06:18 PM
Dirk! I agree with everything you said 100%. If the USA did not go into Iraq, Sadaam would still be executing Iraqi people and throwing them into mass graves. Sadaam would still be using Iraq's oil as his personal meal ticket, for his family and a select few, and living a lavish lifestyle, while the common people starve and live in fear. I wonder if Rogicomel and Mrs. B think Sadaam should continue his mass execution of innocent Iraqi. The comparison of Bush to Sadaam is retarded logic, try comparing Sadaam to the likes of Hitler. World leaders should feel guilty if they did not try to fix this problem in Iraq. I very much respect Bush and Blair, they did not turn a blind eye to the people of Iraq.

As for Roger and Jen, they make an awesome team. We all know Roger's talents. While I'm not a big Jennifer fan, she does have game and experience.

faboozadoo15
12-07-2003, 06:24 PM
kind of strange for that to be your first post on a tennis board, but welcome. i agree with you about jenn-- she's very good (maybe not in doubles), but they'll do fine. neither puts much emphasis on doubles (unless rogi is playing davis cup ;) ). jenn will be playing freely in doubles, because she knows it is a daunting task to have to beat venus, which i think she'll have to do unless masha really comes up with the goods.

my dream mixed doubles teams including roger would be roger/monica (my 2 favorite players), roger and hingis... even though they got beaten by seles/gambill :eek: i really don't know how this was able to happen
roger and maria or dokic would be interesting as well...
really, to be honest im not just hoping for some mixed doubles, lol... nothing against mrika :devil:

Dirk
12-07-2003, 11:46 PM
I do hope and think Roger will continue to play doubles. Someone has to carry on Kaffy's legacy of playing both and winning alot of titles. Roger will never play Slam doubles anymore but I do see him playing doubles in small events and i hope he and Allergo win more titles and he and Max too. I don't see Roger making the 25 25 club though. Jennifer has to beat Venus this time. I mean my god Venus hasn't played in over 6 months. Wish I had tape of Hopman.

Oh and don't be ashamed of not wanting Mirka to play, we all want Roger to win after. He should have taken Patty to Hopman when Hingis was out. Speaking of Patty, I hope she can really have a great 04. She is my favorite WTA player to watch. When she is on she is almost NINJA like. :devil: She is an little :angel: too. :hearts:

Nice to see you around Kody, check out my Ninja mission stories. I think you will like them. :bounce:

Nice to know at least two people here have their heads screwed on straight. I always love how the peacniks yap about peace and this and that but unless you can wrap it up in a nice pretty white bow....forget about it. Oh and did you ever see those peace rallies? 99.9% of them become violent. :lol: Most of them our organized by Anti-Capitalism, Pro-Communism groups. :secret:

12-08-2003, 12:20 AM
well he could win with mirka if she was healthy... but some teams don't play together when they're getting it on behind the scenes...

Dirk
12-08-2003, 04:30 AM
Mirka was an lowed ranked player very low in fact. They would not win. Jennifer is an good doubles player and Roger is an great one so they will be fine. I think Martina and Roger tanked their doubles cause they both won their singles so the doubles was nothing to them.

Mrs. B
12-08-2003, 06:34 AM
:wavey: i see Dirk has worked up a storm while i've been gone, and still full of venom to those who don't agree with his views. and what a coincidence, Beth resurrects on the scene, and Kody signs in and backs the political science professor! :haha:

hi, Dirkhead! i,m writing this from an internet cafe here in Singapore while waiting for my flight to take me to a few nice tropical islands to chill out for a few weeks. you ought to do the same, dude. your blood pressure is going up! why are you so hateful to people who don't agree with you? everyone's got different opinions so you should learn to deal with that. you should also accept the fact that not everyone (including Americans) approves of what your current prez has done to Iraq. so chill out already! Geez. lemme give u 2 rolling eyes now... :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

stick to your ninja fantasy stories dirk, or better still, continue writing Roger 7 page letters and tell him what he should do on the court so he can win every match so you don't flip out everytime he loses to that f----ing meathead, right? and this is a tennis thread, if i want to read about political issues i can go somewhere else, right? this is the internet after all.

poor Roger. his thread has become a `puff haus'! if you found out his political views maybe you'll start calling him names too, huh?

Merry Christmas, kiddo! See u after the New Year! :bigwave:

Dirk
12-08-2003, 07:46 AM
As far as my letters to Roger go. They are always well written and very respectable and full of encouragement and advice. Just ask Beth on that. I see that plenty of your posts while Roger is playing are quite intense, since you know Roger has the habit of letting down and giving matches away. Your just as passionate as me if not much more as regards to being an Rogi fan. Your not exactly cool and calm when he loses big matches either. We have the same desire and that is to see our favorite player do his best. I wouldn't be shocked if Roger did have different views than mine. I would just hope that he appreciates the fact that he is blessed to live in an country that doesn't have to involve itself in making the world an safer place. His country is able to be neutral since other countries like the UK and US pick up the slack. Do I hate you and Rogicoml? No I just can't for the life of me understand how you draw your conclusions. My posts were full of facts regarding the war. I simply backed up my statements. I usually don't mind criticism of my country or my president but when it comes from someone that is from an country that will never lift an finger to aid another country in gaining freedom and prosperity, I don't have much patient. What Bush has done to Iraq???? I love you looseheaded liberals. :lol: It would be so nice to see an post saying what Saddamn has done to Iraq, oh yeah you would probably rave about the wonderful Universal Healthcare. Boy that is great, so after you enjoy your stay in an **** room or torture chamber; you get to go to the hospital and get treatment for free. :rolls: Beth speaks for herself and Kody is an new face on the boards. I have nothing to do with their replies.

This is an tennis thread and I don't start political subjects. Rogicoml did and well I gave my opinion and then some replies. If you don't like it, then don't reply and the thread will die. Amazing though, you weren't nearly this upset over Oracle belittling the impact of Peter Carter's on Roger when his old site was up. :rolleyes:

Have a safe and relaxing vac and think of us freezing our butts off here in the N hemisphere!! ;)

Fingers crossed for Rogi to win the Credit Suisse Sports Awards on Sat.!! Can't wait!!

Interesting what Beth said about Rogi's perfume, eh? I want a whiff of RF too... ;) :angel:

faboozadoo15
12-08-2003, 08:42 PM
:rolleyes: they didn't tank the match... monica and jan won it in a third set... they just played better. monica would be a better doubles player than martina if she played more , imo. her serve and aggressiveness do more than hingis's fantastic consistency in doubles. monica is far more imposing at the net, and she wins a higher percentage there than martina. her return and serve-- martina doesn't even compare there.

Kody
12-08-2003, 09:40 PM

As guilty as I feel for resurrecting the war subject, I simply can not ignore the dribble by Dirk.

Dirk, you are stating a biased opinion - your not educating anyone.

If everyone against the war is a moron why do millions of Australians, Americans and English so opposed to war? And these are only countries that sent troops over there.

You say Iraqis support America?
The million Iraqi Shiites who recently made the pilgrimage to Karbala, chanting: "No to America!" lack your optimism over the war's impact.

They despised Hussein, but understand US-UK hypocrisy. In the 1980s the US and UK helped Hussein acquire WMD and invade Iran, bolstering his regime against domestic and foreign opposition- when his brutality served America's interests. This support vanished immediately as he invaded pro-Western, oil producing Kuwait.

Do you think America fought the war out of some suddenly-discovered love for the Iraqi people? Don't be a fool.

or in pursuit of national economic interests?



The list of the late twentieth-century's most bloody tyrants (Saddam, Pinochet, Suharto, Pol Pot), most infamous terrorists (the Contras, Al-Qaeda), and most repressive dictatorships (contemporary Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Uzbekistan) that the US has backed in recent years out of political and economic self-interest is melancholically long, and lengthening.

jtipson
12-11-2003, 01:38 PM
Whilst I'm not unhappy to see someone taking issue with Dirk's narrow and very arrogant posts, Wyvern, would you like to create a separate thread for the war discussion, preferably not in Roger's forum?

Thanks!

Thus is very good news!!! I dont think they'll be beaten!! I mean a womens tennis legend playing with a future mens tennis legend has got to make them virtually unbeatable!! Good luck to Roger & Martina :worship: :worship: :bowdown: :bowdown:

Is she going to be playing the singles matches too? :aplot:

Maybe Roger can get her to change sides. :smooch: I bet she wants to do that to him once they hit the court and she sees the magic come out of Roger Potter's racquet.

I dont think it will be too tough! Martina is still capable of winning doubles slams, so I would definitly think they can win it!!

Navratilova replaces Capriati
Unus Alladin

Jennifer Capriati has pulled out of this month's Watsons Water Champions Challenge at Victoria Park because of injury.

But while one superstar has withdrawn, another has taken her place as American legend Martina Navratilova will take to the court as Capriati's replacement in mixed doubles, partnering Wimbledon men's singles champion, Roger Federer. And another American, Chanda Rubin, the world number nine, will take Capriati's place in singles in the annual extravaganza scheduled from January 8-10. Capriati won the Hong Kong event in 2002, coming back from a set down to beat Russian powerhouse Elena Dementieva in the final.

Tournament co-director Terry Catton said: 'We were informed just before Christmas that Capriati was suffering from a back injury and would have to withdraw from our event, and she may sadly even have to pull out from the Australian Open. It's obviously disappointing, but we are nevertheless delighted to have secured such great players to replace Jennifer.'

Navratilova is considered the greatest-ever women's tennis player. The 47-year-old Prague-born star currently plays full-time doubles on the WTA Tour where she also competed in singles for an amazing 22 consecutive years from 1973 to 1994.

She has 58 Grand Slam titles (singles, doubles and mixed doubles), 167 tournament wins in singles and 172 wins in doubles and remains one of the game's most charismatic and respected figures.

Steve Tong, general manager of Watsons Water, said: 'With the immense interest shown in the event's mixed doubles competition and with Martina the reigning Wimbledon mixed doubles champion, it will be wonderful for Hong Kong fans to see this legendary player pairing up with Federer, this year's Wimbledon champion.'

Colvin Brown, president of the Hong Kong Tennis Patrons' Association, added: 'We are absolutely thrilled to have Martina in the field, and with the superb form that Chanda Rubin has been in over the past year, the ladies' singles should be a real cracker.'

In view of the player changes, organisers also announced the need to revise the tournament draw and order of play. World number eight Dementieva becomes the number two seed in the women's singles, and she will now take on fellow Russian Maria Sharapova on January 8. Chanda Rubin has been drawn against Venus Williams for the first match the following day.

actually navratilova would be a good coach for federer, she certainly knows enough about the game and is a big fan of the attacking tennis federer is capable of

Martina as coach for Roger --- sounds like a great idea to me! She would be a good match for his game (and she certainly knows how to win Wimbledon, lol!)
