You'll be there!?! Fantastic - take all our love, good wishes, hopes and dreams with you to Roger. I agree - Roger needs the support of his fans now in a testing time even more than in the great times. By support I don't mean blinkered fangirl/boy ism - all sports stars go through testing times and it should be recognised, sometimes they get it wrong - that should be recognised as well. But genuine through thick or thin support. The question has always been asked of Fed's fans - are you a fan of the man, his game or his success? This is the time that will tell. I'm not willing to bask in his glory in the good times without being willing to wade through the "crap" with him in the bad times.

So have a good tournament both of you - you can be our channel to Roger!!

I hope you and Doris enjoy the tournament and that Roger plays well there.

Is he playing on Tuesday or Wednesday? I thought that all the first round matches would be on Monday and Tuesday...but I'm not sure..

Very well put Although I have to admit, the basking was much more fun than the wading through the crap.
OTOH If Roger manages to have another great grass season ie wins wimbledon I'm sure I'd enjoy it WAY more than any other tournament victory

Thank you so much, and be sure, we'll send you all our love...!
I fully agree with your notes on fangirlism - I actually quite despite that. I've always felt that one loves someone despite that person's mistakes, while fanboying/idolization is just closing your eyes for that person's mistakes - quite a difference!

As for me, I became a fan of Roger's for his game, but it has evolved into being a fan of the MAN just the same. Success doesn't interest me, I'll keep on cheering for him, even when he ends up the #765 in the world and going out in first rounds everywhere...

We'll be there on Tuesday - arriving somewhere around 11:30. I have to get a train from where I live at 6:00 AM...

I guess he'll get a Wednesday start, but it doesn't hurt to see quite a few other players out there as well - quite a bunch of my favs around, Tomas Berdych (lovely fellow! ), Misha Youzhny, Robin Haase (hey! a fellow countryman! )...
I'm sure we'll be having a good time!

He skipped the whole tournament last year. Didn't bother him in the least.

Yes but he did practice on it before wimbledon, at least I hope so

There Roger will have absolutely no time to get used to grass before his matches, and as stupid as it may sound, he's always had more difficulties winning Halle than wimbledon
