I would like to thank you for the overwhelming amount of messages and letters you sent me this past week. Losing the Australian Open final certainly hurt, but it is important to move on and focus on the challenges lying ahead. I feel fine and fit and am eager to get back on court. I have enjoyed a few days off, which was great, and will soon be training again.
Thank you once again for supporting me and giving me such a lot of positive input! A lot of you have noticed that my website was slow after the final Down Under. The reason for that was the enormous amount of traffic – more than we had ever experienced before. New hardware for the server has been ordered and will be installed as soon as possible so that you can enjoy rogerfederer.com without hassles in the future!

The first time I watched tennis live (US Open 07) I was too excited to pay attention to the actual tennis in the beginning. I first watched Nalby-Ferru (double ) so I guess that was one more reason to be distracted.
You should make a big sign with something original and when they show you on the big screen flip it over and have "MTF Rafa chat rules" on the other side.
Right... No, I think we have enough lurkers as it is. Can you imagine what would happen to the MTF servers after such an ad?
