Onto greener pastures!
Have fun at Halle, Karin and Doris!
Hopefully Roger will not have too rough of a transition. I'm glad about the general optimism for his game on grass!

You could try the betfair videostream, it's not quite the same as live coverage but it's a pretty good stream. ES here only show Queens as well so I've been watching Halle via the livestream

As posted on rf.com Love to see the smile on Roger's face.



http://www.gerryweber-open.de/de/akt...n.html?id=2650

The #1 in the world lands in Halle

Roger Federer arrived in Halle and has his first practice on grass at the moment.

No trace of sadness: 2 days after his loss on the final in Paris Roger is highly motivated and in good mood for the 16th Gerry Weber Open.

Just before his first practice early in the afternoon the 4 time Gerry Weber Open champion enjoyed blue skies and summer temperatures: "Finally the weather is nice. I had enough of rain during the last 4 weeks."

Federer and his girlfriend Mirka Vavrinec were welcome with flowers by the tournament director Ralf Weber and the tournament founder Gerd Weber at 13:38 o'clock in the Gerry Weber Sportpark Hotel. Federer had arrived with a private jet from Zurich to Paderborn.

During his talk with Ralf Weber Federer was informed about all the scores and news from the Gerry Weber Open and was happy that the German players had done so well up to now: "That's good for the tournament." However if he wants to start perfectly the tournament he has to spoil the mood and the chances of another German professional player Michael Berrer from Stuttgart who is his opponent in R1.

Thanks Jen honey, I rather not watch or stream videos at work. I will once I get home and if the heat is not too intense tonight when I get home. We don't have an ac at our computer room/living room.

Thanks Kimber too for the stream in case TTC won't air it, I could have sworn I heard or read on the Tennisweek magazine that Halle will be aired is this true? (In the US)

From what I gathered he said, he was feeling well, happy to be here and that his practice went well

Maybe a german speaker can confirm that though

Usually, TTC starts airing these IS tournaments from the QF/SF.

Have they ever aired Halle? I know they've aired Queens, but don't recall Halle?

Thanks Mahesh in advance, and for you input.

Default Re: ******* Halle 2008 c'mon Roger *******

Apparently his whole team is here (physio, masseur, Luthi, higueras)

EDIT : I'm trying to translate bit by bit so expect a lot of OOT posts
EDIT 2 : Someone from RF.com already translated everything Thanks to vrazkar

Quote:
Part I

The moderator says first that they are happy that Roger came to this presser just a couple of hours after he arrived to Halle. He says "No problem" with a smile. They are also happy that he takes part in the tournament. Then moderator asks how does it feel to play on the surface on which Roger practiced today? And Roger smiles all the time... He says: "A little bit different but I feel very well on grass. I must say that I had fun to play again on grass, it's brings you joy. Every time that I go to clay or grass I have a special feeling because I wonder how long it will take to get used to the new surface. But then after 2-3 days I start feeling well. Today especially that nice weather helped a lot. The practice was good and I don't have any physical problems which is very important after Paris. That's why I must say that I am very content.

The moderator says: "You brought your whole team with you and maybe your aim is to concentrate on Wimbledon starting with Halle and working with your whole team."

Roger: "Yes, exactly. My masseur is here, my conditional trainer as well. He goes home tomorrow but he takes care that I do everything correct with warming up and exercises... Then also Jose Higueras the coach is also here. The only one who is missing is the Davis Cup captain who was also with me in the last couple of weeks but will be back for Wimbledon so my team is almost full at the moment.

The moderator gives the word to the people from the press and while doing this Roger smiles again.....

Part II of the presser

I simply can't hear the question of some of the journalists. So here are mainly the answers of Roger:

Journalist: I think she asks when did he decide to take part in Gerry Weber Open

Roger: "Well, one should first judge how one feels in the first moment... You have to understand that I go to the presser only 15 min after the match... Yes.. So then you just want to be ready with the presser as soon as possible. I usually want to give myself some time and then to think it over well. The match on Sunday wasn't that hard and of course that helped to be able to come here. That's the only positive thing from this match... But I decided on Sunday evening that I would come here and called Rolf to tell him that I was ok and felt well. In fact I wanted to give myself some time till Monday afternoon, to relax and decide if I come here but this was clear to me on Sunday evening and that's why I called him to tell him so that he could sleep well." (laughs)

Journalist.... I think she asks him if it wouldn't be better to have 2 weeks rest from tennis instead of coming to play here.

Roger: "Well, you have to take the positive from everything. You can take yourself some time to relax and to go away from all the stress and appointments. But I took a commitment to the tournament that I would come to play here in the next 3 years as long as I feel well. In the same time it brought me a lot of luck to play here and then Wimbledon. It all went very well in the previous years and that's why I felt a bit unsure last year when I went to Wimbledon without playing here. It wasn't the same way of preparation. That's why I hope that this time around it will be also ok with playing here and thus being able to prepare for Wimbledon. But it is also true that after this tournament I will have a break because the last couple of weeks were very intense."

Journalist: Have you thought about analyzing the clay court season so far... (not sure here)

Roger: "I don't have any idea if I will speak about this with the coach at all... Clay court is over and analysing it now won't help me prepare for hard court season. That's why I think that it's better to speak about this in 3 months after USO and to see if something should be done in a different way. But I should say that now 2 days since it is over it's already out of my head which honestly is good for me."
