Can you tell me Litotes why a lot of people hardly ever back Roger to win Miami? He did win it twice back to back in 2005-2006 but that was the last time he was in the final so is that why it's not most people don't think he'd win it? I'm not meaning you, Just i see on the internet almost everyone thinks he can't win it.
But you're right, hopefully he gets Ferrer, Del Potro or Gasquet although i hope Juan doesn't play. I'd rather see him recover then play injured.
I hope Del Potro withdraws too. I guess we'll see. MD will be out not too long into the future, if he withdraws after it's done - again - then he's certainly a favourable draw.

Miami doesn't fit Roger very well imo, two wins from his prime are really no indication it does. I'd love to see him win but I feel chances are lower than in IW. Lots of people agree with me there. But you never know. There are not that many realistic winning candidates, especially with Murray in poor form.

Indian Wells is usually the tournament where the top players play doubles.

Depending on how the Davis Cup is going to be I wouldn't be surprised to see Roger and Stan entering a tournament later on in the season to play doubles there.
Canada Masters would be my guess.

yep, Miami Masters doesn't suit him at all, so slow, impossible to hit through . only good thing about it is lower bounce due to high humidity

Hello all. Sorry I've not been for a long here but I'm with you virtually with the same thoughts and wishes.

Great work and great start of season.
Obviously I'm sad about the lost yesterday bu happy for his come back in the 3rd set. I couldn't watch it if I would want to survive but I saw the live score
Very good mental strength which he needs.

I'm a little bit sad but good work and now Roger gave a baby trophy to his other 4 - this is the funny side if we have to look for it.

Thanks Doris. I don't know but some of the time I had before missing and at the end I finish to read some news about Roger and the time drops so I don't write at all

PS. Nice avatar but I would like it more if "he" was Roger like

I'm a few days behind and just saw the Indian Wells final. I noticed Roger had tape on his right thumb; it was pretty thick - was it just for a blister?

He's got a decent draw. He should reach SFs here, and that would be enough to put him in either 3rd or 4th depending on when Stan goes out. 2006 was 8 years ago!
