The last time these 2 played a match that mattered, Roger won rather easily. I don't think exhibitions mean anything to him, but then again, GWH's signature says it all.

From this day on, players shall be judged by their exhibition results, which are far more important than Grand Slams or tournaments of actual point value.

I'm not too concerned by this.

Roger is on the right path. :yeah:

Poor, poor Roger.

But, Roger will bounce back. He always does. It's good for him to have a break before the AO anyway.

And as for Tommy, wow. I bet he didn't see that coming :)

I'll also bet a lot of people have very unhappy v-cash right now....

Carito_90
01-11-2006, 04:15 AM
The matches mean a lot to everyone, not ranking point-wise or that kind of stuff but it's still preparation for the AO and besides, Kooyong is one of the most prestigious exhibitions in the tour due to the fact that most of the top ranked players play it every time.

I'm sure Tommy either played really well or Roger played really bad. But then again, I didn't watch the match at all... no coverage. ugh.

01-11-2006, 05:21 AM
nope it's like a regular 8-man draw, not round robin (unless they've changed it from last year). Only the winners of the first four matches can win. They go on and play semis and then a final and the losers play in that bracket for 5-8th place.

So who do Haas and Roddick play next?
from the AP:
-------------
Haas advanced to the winners group and will next play Guillermo Coria, a 6-2, 6-2 winner over Ivan Ljubicic.

Federer and Ljubicic meet in the relegation group.

In the other half, Andy Roddick returned from two months off and beat 19-year-old Frenchman Gael Monfils 6-2, 6-2.

He'll next play the winner of Wednesday's later match between Masters Cup champion Nalbandian and Nicolas Kiefer.

Not totally unexpected- Tommy is a very dangerous player as I have said before they played in Qatar. It took a peak Roger to beat him there and even then it was closer than the scoreline suggests. A good win for Tommy. :yeah:

As for Roger I don't think it is such a bad thing he lost in Kooyong. He still gets three matches under his belt no matter what for more match practice and losing a match will keep him on his toes for the Australian. I still remember 2004 when he lost to Agassi 6-4,6-2 in Kooyong where he got totally outplayed but we all know what happened at the Australian Open shortly thereafter.

I do not think his health is a problem. I saw him in Doha and he was moving beautifully and back to full fitness. And he didn't lose the match today because of faulty fitness Tommy was just too good.

Unless he re-injures himself unexpectedly he should be good and ready to go for the Open :yeah:

My words regarding this subject mirror reality, then again, Roddick fans do an awful lot of explaining his 3 defeats to Roger at Wimbledon, even though losing to Federer doesn't matter.

I mean, he's (Roger) a deity and allow me to put it into American slang for you, "Duh" - it's totally acceptable to lose to Roger, because like pot and getting drunk in High School, everyone does it.

Don't you know - it's the trendy thing. Get with it. Muller and Mathieu are so not in, what were you thinking Andy? :rolleyes:

Even though its an exhibition, I don't think Roge "planned" to lose, or takes the loss lightly

I did not see this match. But since Xmas, he has won a tournamente without drop of a set, so I dont think there is any injury/other reason. I think Hass has just played better and Roge maybe is a bit more relax with the atmosphere that this is an exhibition (not an excuse, though)

Tell me, since when has 2 ideas been considered a lot ? :)

My words regarding this subject mirror reality, then again, Roddick fans do an awful lot of explaining his 3 defeats to Roger at Wimbledon, even though losing to Federer doesn't matter.

I mean, he's (Roger) a deity and allow me to put it into American slang for you, "Duh" - it's totally acceptable to lose to Roger, because like pot and getting drunk in High School, everyone does it.

Don't you know - it's the trendy thing. Get with it. Muller and Mathieu are so not in, what were you thinking Andy? :rolleyes:

Toodles.

Maybe you don't speak English well, you are a native of the New England area - should I translate my words to Bostonian Dialect to make them more sensible ?

I mean, hun, there's only so much I can do for you. You're a hopeless one. ;)
