If this a valid account, then I am liking the attitude or swagger what ever you want to call it. Well he's a leo and he's world's number so he'l never admit or say, Oh I am peeing on my pants.

Thanks Jen. I used to have an account over there but lost my password. I can't seem to get them to give me a new one.

So very Roger

I like his attitude, but I've come to a conclusion that he is not always telling the true feelings (I'm not saying he is not here though). I mean, what else can he say...

yes, yanchr, what else is Rogi going to say? "no, I'm not ready, I'm going to lose... why do I bother w clay!"

again, I'm taking this tournament one match at a time... if Rogi can firstly beat that Canas, then defend his points, that's a start anyway... we have to see what he learned fr Higueras and how he applies it next week

ROMA, as w all the clay tourneys TFA plays, is HIS to lose... [so TFA, was Rogelio the favourite to win BCN?? ]

Cañas, Cilic/Karlovic, Mathieu, Ferrer, Djokovic/Nalbandian -- I say, bring it on. Tough draw, but just what Roger needs. Steel is wrought through fire.

Federer also managed to get the highest possible first round seed in Dubai. I guess the problem with being number one for so long, is that you set records.

I definitely didn't mean he was bs-ing with fans. Generally he doesn't have to tell the truth to the fans either, like he does not to the media. He says things to fans with good intension, that's for sure. I take that more as being polite and friendly, rather than indicative.

Indeed. Whining about draws is for pussies, IMHO.
Hopp Roger, show us your powers!

ROGER'S RESTED AND GOOD TO GO
A relaxed Roger Federer came to answer some questions in the pre-tournament press conference.


At 4pm the interview room of the Forro Italico all of a sudden filled up as though something was going to happen. Sure enough, a tall figure walked in with an "RF" cap on his head. Journalist's from all over the world sat down quickly and hushed up in order to listen to the (other) "Great One". Here are some of the topics that were covered :

His new coach Jose Higueras
"Jose will only be joining me in Paris. The truth is we have not yet had enough time to really start working together in depth. Before Roland-Garros it will be nice because we will have some time to train and work. In Estoril and Monte-Carlo it was difficult because when your in a tournament you don't have the same time to focus on specifics"

His biggest clay court rival : Rafael Nadal
"I was in the final of Hambourg 4 times and won each time. I was in the final of Monte-Carlo 3 times and always lost to Rafa. Maybe had I not played him in the finals I would have won that tournament."

Being up 4-0 in the second set of the final and losing
"Had I been up 4-0 on Rafa on any other surface I would have probably won 6-1 or 6-2, but on clay it's a completly different story. For Rafa on clay nothing is impossible."

What he can improve
"There is not much to change in my game. Maybe I can serve a bit better and try improve my attacking game, but all in all I'm pretty happy with what I've done up to know on clay. Estoril was difficult due to the changing weather conditions, and in Monte-Carlo I had a dicy 1st round (he was down 5-1 in the 3rd set to Spaniard Ramirez-Hidalgo) and then a good few wins versus Monfils and Nalbandian"

His draw
"I usually don't look at the entire draw. I prefer to focus on my upcomming match as well as who I would play if I move on. I also take a look at what seeds are in my half, but that's it I don't look at who's playing who in all the different rounds"

What he did during his week off
"I took a few days off to rest and then I started hitting again to prepare for this week. I got here yesterday (Saturday) and played 3 hours and 2 today."

His fitness
"I feel good, I did some tests last week and everything is good"

All in all the world number 1 seems confident comming in to the second clay court Masters-Series of the season. His main concern, and rightfully so is "Rafa". And even though he did not say it, deep down, beating him in the final is a challenge he would love to overcome.
