He'll have the advantage of surprise against Federer in the third round, that's for sure.

I guess he will be suprised by playing on Philippe Chatrier court, that's for sure.

Who knows, this one could be on Lenglen, bearing in mind there are other third-rounders like Murray v Baghdatis and Monfils v Wawrinka in the offing.

Can someone describe how Reister looks and his style of play? Like most, I have never seen the guy.

Is there any way he could give Fed trouble (especially as Fed has probably never seen him before)? Could he take a set?

Well, he's already upset two 'decent' players (take that for what it's worth :angel:), and Feds has this habit of struggling against players he doesn't know/hasn't played against before. Anyone remembers Tokyo 2007?

Thanks.

I see this is being discussed in the "Fed vs. Resister" thread.

Imagine how exciting it must be for this kid. Made it through qualies, gets 2 nice wins at a slam, and then gets to play Fed. He must be on top of the world right now. Great to see.

Even more exciting then. He has (probably) been laboring on the challenger circuit for a while and appreciates how sweet this is.

More likely he's the only idiot who wants to be squashed by Fed on the center court. His playing activity is beyond pathetic even on a CH level. Reister is 0-3 on ATP level :rolleyes: being 24 and played only 3 ATP matches and losing all of them :o

Then how come he managed to beat Flopez and Ollie in a row? Do you think both of them tanked? :scratch: :confused:
Dunno why, but I don't think Fed will 'squash' him. :cool:

Fluke wins, Karin. Besides Feli isn't a force on clay :shrug:
Reister will be squashed do no doubt that, he'll fold like a tent playing on the CC and against mighty Fed.

I bet you could find lots of people that would pay to be squashed by Fed on center court in the 3rd round of the French Open. I know I sure would.

Well I know Lopez is not actually a clay-wonder, but still should be able to 'squash' Mr.-Unknown-Ranked-168-Without-Any-ATP-Victory methinks. Same with Rochus. Hope you're right that these were just flukes.

I don't think Reister will really mind getting squashed btw. But I have yet to see it. ;)

When was the last time that Federer did not play on "center court" at ANY event. I can't even remember. Must be years ago, I guess. Anyone remember?

QFs against Gonzalez here two years ago, I believe.

Apparently he did, and like I said earlier, I have a hard time to believe that beating Flopez and Rochus in straights in a row in a GS tournament is just a 'fluke'.

Maybe the 2010-version of Martin Verkerk? ;) ;) ;)

Well, Federer had a pretty bad nightmare before that match! And we all know how much Fed likes his sleep.

"I jumped out of bed and stood up screaming in a state of shock. I didn't know where I was," Federer said.

"I ran and hit the corner of the bed and I have a big bruise now. It was a pretty scary moment."

I had never heard that before. Funny stuff.

Probably from the opium pipe he was smoking before he went to bed would be my guess.

:lol: First of all, it was 2006. Time Flies. :angel:
But of course, no excuse for his absolutely piss-poor performance against the #1001 ranked ATP player in his 1st round (yep not joking - sorry, can't remember the name of the guy right now - EDIT: Takao Suzuki) at that time.

In other words: anything can happen. ;)

Well, to defend Federer a bit more, Suzuki was only ranked so low because he was coming back from injury. I do agree with your point though. I mean this is tennis, after all!

he is a blond guy and has a normal body. He has no sixpack or so and isn't really a muscleman. I was at his match against lopez. Lopez was sooooooooo bad i would have taken games of him that day. Reister has no killer serve or any killer shots. He looks like a normal good player who is in great form. His advantage is that he plays very high tempo rallies. He is not waiting for that kick serve to go to 3 meters high, but he steps in the court and take it early. His dropshot is hilarious bad and he scores the most points with his forehand. He has a very positive way of playing. Many people cheered for him.
