His self-belief seems to have taken a nosedive - maybe it is depression...or he is unable to adjust to grass after a long period playing on clay.

I think the OP might be on to something. He trained for a while speciifically for RG and I think he thought he was going to win. Now he's kind of deflated. He's also had much less prep time on grass this year compared to the past two years. He'll probably pick it up now.

Hey, peoples!! Don't worry about Fed, he's a human being. He's allowed to be disappointed just like anyone else. He'll pick himself up and get on w/ it. Don't worry he won't cut his ear off or anything that dramatic...we'll leave that up to Safin(joking)....lol.That's a good sign of a champion!

To anyone who watched the match or followed it very closely,

Did something happen between Rog and Soderling during the match today?


-----From BBC TENNIS-----
The normally unflappable Federer complained at one point that Soderling had stopped playing in the middle of a point after the ball appeared to land out.

"Afterwards he won the point anyway by serving an ace and then jeered right into my face so it's certainly a problem with him right now," said Federer.

Soderling has been a trouble maker, hasn't he?

From 0-2 sets @ RG to beat Verdasco, now almost shocking world #1.

As difficult as it is to fathom world #1 is rattled, can't say his last few performance have been vintage Rogi.

I think Roger is disappointed at the FO performance. He worked very hard toward trying to win the FO. Then on "D" day, he played horrible tennis.........I'm not putting Nadal down. So yes, I can understand Roger being disappointed and a bit upset at himself.

You can love Fiesty Federer all you want, I kinda like it too - however, it doesn't seem to help him like it does with Hewitt, or Nadal. So I don't know if this is positive. Anyway, I also really like Federer's cool classy behavior. Guess I'd like him anyway.

When you are that high up in the rankings, any loss may really affect you. Didn't you see Nadal's face when he thought he could lose against Puerta??? he was REALLY uncormfortable! and looked like it.

I watched since 5-6 in the 1st set till end of the 2nd (a break to see final games of Hewitt-Malisse 1st set) and then again since 2-3 in the 3rd.

I didn´t have the feeling Roger played bad, even more considering that was his first match on grass. Soderling played quite well and served also fine. He´s not a walk in the park for anyone when he´s one, that´s pretty obvious.

About that issue on 2-3 30-15 in the 3rd, both players acted like children. Roger stopped the match and sat down in a arrogant manner (for my taste) waiting for the supervisor to attend him (:shrug: ) and later Soderling stared at him after winning the last point in the game. Go n grow up you both

This is the reason why tennis needs the instant replay, but since Roger is against it, he has to go and sit in his chair. :o

The thing is, he is taking for granted that he will make it to the semis and that he will beat Rafa there (and he probably will). But I think he needs to take one match at a time and take care of business without underestimating anybody. I think he is starting to project things a bit too fast. Today's match was really scary.

Shy
06-08-2005, 01:34 AM
Usually, Roger bombs out from RG early. So, he usually has two more weeks to prepare for grass. Let's see if he can get in grass mood in lest than three days.

Do you have inside knowledge that we don't have? I'm asking seriously. I mean, in none of his interviews has Federer said anything about playing Nadal and beating him. In fact, the media keep bringing Nadal up (undestandably) and Federer answers something about playing one match at a time, and that people shouldn't focus only on Nadal, that Roger also has to worry about Roddick, Safin and Hewitt.

He also said he expected the match against Soderling to be a tough one, and now expects Mayer to be really tough, too. How's that taking for granted that he's going to make it to the semis and beat Rafa there?

:confused:

From BBC Tennis: Federer said before the tournament began that he hoped to meet Rafael Nadal in the semi-finals, but the Swiss star almost fell at the first hurdle

Like I said, he is already thinking about the semi-finals.

Well, I think I'm with robinhood on this one. I don't think his difficulties today had much to do with thinking about the semis.

I think he just didn't have a lot of prep time on grass this time around. As opposed to the past two years...

One thing to take note of is that Soderling is a far tougher first round opponent than a WC like Waske. Next Roger will face Mayer which also seems a lot tougher than who Nadal will face in the 2nd round.

The clay court season runs from February on through May. That gave Nadal a lot of time to devote himself to his favorite surface and shine. On the other hand Roger has to come back from RG and in 3 days start playing suddenly on grass. There is only time for one warm up tournament before Wimbledon. Not Fair ! :mad:

PamV
06-08-2005, 03:05 AM
What with the strange outburst that happened during the Soderling match today, I think maybe the pressure is finally getting to Roger. But after a few more wins under his belt, he will be fine.



Did you see the match? I read the commentary and it seemed as though Roger thought Soderlilng questioned a call but still tried to keep playing the point and it got confusing. Roger felt Soderling was not being fair.

I would also say that drawing Soderling is a bit of a tough 1st round when just coming back from later rounds of RG. It's far easier for the players who may have lost in the 1st - 3rd rounds of RG. Or far easier for the players who get a low level WC in the first round.

That's just one thing BBC has chosen to point out.

They didn't mention what RF said about other opponents, did they?

About Soderling

" That will be tough – he will be no push-over.”

About Mayer

" He playes completely different tennis than the most other players and has a very different technique. It will be interesting to see how it is to play against him, because I only had a training session with him in last years Wimbledon so far. You may think always that he plays much worse than he actually does. I know that he is dangerous, because I saw him play many brilliant matches. It is now the first time since a while ago that he no longer plays constantly the high level. Neverthless, he is dangerous,, (we are) in Germany"
