C'est vraiment dommage que je ne puisse aller a Tokyo
a cause de mon travail.
Bonne chance a toi, Rogi! Le titre, c'est a toi.

Il fait toujours assez chaud au Japon. On dit que
la saison est retardee d'un mois. J'espere que la
saison aura avance vite comme un express dans une semaine.

Une autre chose que j'apprehende, c'est comment le
media japonais va correspondre a la deuxieme visite
du numero un mondial du tennis.
Car, beaucoup de ses fans n'en etaient pas du tout
contents l'annee derniere. C'etait pas comme il faudrait
pour le numero un mondial. En effet, au Japon, le tennis
n'est pas un sport aussi populaire que le baseball. Mais,
dans les journaux televises(pas forcement sportifs), il est
arrive qu'on parlait de Sharapova sans parler du record de Roger.
Est-ce qu'on pense que les fans japonais ne savent
pas s'amuser du jeu du tennis?
D'ailleurs, au Japon, les journalistes sportifs
ou les commentateurs qui redigent souvent des articles
du tennis appartiennent a la generation Borg-Sampras-Agassi.
Et il me semble qu'ils cherchent a devaluer Roger:
<< Le nombre des titres du GS ne prouvent pas que
c'est un grand joueur>>;<< La duree du regne comme
le numero un mondial ne prouve pas que c'est un grand
joueur parce que Federer a eu de la chance de ne pas
etre entre en rivalite comme Sampras-Agassi>>, etc.
J'en suis vraiment d'autant plus decue de tout cela
que Roger avait de la sympathie pour le Japon et pour
ses fans japonais.
Je souhaite vraiment que ca va mieux cette annee!

Default Re: ***** Captain Wasabi returns to Tokyo *****

I would like to ask a question to whoever has
welcomed Roger in one's own country.
Do you think that Roger has been dealt with by
the media properly as the world number one
still making history?

That's the point I'm talking about in my last post.
(My English is not so good, so I wrote in french).

In Japan, the sportswriters or the (ex-)commentators
who contribute frequently articles on tennis tourney
and blog in the website, belong to the generation
who had been devoted fans of Borg-Sampras-Agassi.
And many of them are apt to devaluate Roger:<< The number of
the GS titles, that's not the proof of the great player>>,
<< How many weeks he has been the world number one, that
doesn't matter because he was just lucky not to have
endured the rivalry as Sampras vs Agassi>>,<< Do we need
to invite him to Japan?>>, etc.
It appears that Roger was very interested in japanese
culture and that he liked japanese tennis fans very much
and all the more, many of his japanese fans were and still
are very disappointed at the actual situation of the japanese
media.
I have to add this: they can talk about Sharapova in the
TV news without making mention of the record of Roger. I wonder
if they think that the japanese tennis fans can't appreciate
the play itself and the great players.
I really hope that it's going better this year!
Rogi, bonne chance, le titre est a toi!

Do you mean if Roger gets the deserved appreciation from the media? I guess it is normal that the media draws comparisons to former players and their success. The German media coverage on Roger is really good and I have the impression that they appreciate his achievements and see it as something extraordinary. I don't remember that I have ever read anything really negative about him. The main questions in the media are of course whether he will win the French Open and/or break Petes amount of Grand Slam titles.

I think Roger was happy with Japan and the Japanese last year in Tokyo I agree with you though that a lot of People seem not to realize they're witnessing something they're not likely to see again in their lifetime, and don't treat Roger the way he'd deserve... But that is not only in Japan, that happens in almost every country (Switzerland included sometimes).
