this is from BLICK today:

Roger Federer überzeugte in Casablanca


Casablanca. BaZ. Roger Federer war die grosse Figur der spannungsgeladenen Daviscup-Begegnung in Casablanca. Nachdem er am Samstag den ebenfalls sehr starken George Bastl zum Sieg im Doppel mitgerissen hatte, schlug er gestern Younes El Aynaoui klar und vollendete seine Marokko-Mission.

Lesen Sie in der heutigen BaZ den Exklusiv-Bericht:

Der Daviscup führt Federer in ein neues Hoch
[dc places Federer in a new high??]

and dessert...now that's something i like. i always leave space in my tummy for something sweet.
Maybe Doris can recommend a couple of delicious ones...

A Swiss celebration, indeed!

There's also an interview of Roger at the Berner Zeitung of today, maybe Doris can also translate that for you (sorry it's a bit long) because it's really sweet. He said that while playing he could feel Peter Carter around, he says it's hard to explain that...but i know what he means...

Doris:

I think this is the article [forgive me for posting here]:


Federer überragend

Das Schweizer Davis-Cup-Team ist dank Roger Federer weiter erstklassig. Der Baselbieter steuerte zum 3:2-Sieg in der Relegationspartie gegen Marokko drei Punkte bei.

92 Minuten gegen Hicham Arazi, 105 im Doppel mit George Bastl gegen Karim Alami/Younes El Aynaoui, 103 gegen El Aynaoui: Der Federer-Express rollte während der drei Tage in Casablanca mit unglaublich hohem Tempo durch das Al-Amal-Stadion und sorgte dafür, dass die Schweiz ihre seit 1995 währende Zugehörigkeit zur Weltgruppe halten konnte. Zum zweiten Mal nach seiner «One-Man- Show» im Februar 2001 gegen die USA weist Federer nach einer Davis-Cup-Begegnung mit drei Siegen eine makellose Bilanz aus.

Erfolg für Duo Federer/Bastl
Die Basis für den erfolgreichen Abstecher nach Nordafrika hatte Federer am Samstag in Zusammenarbeit mit Bastl gelegt. Die beiden harmonierten beim 6:4, 6:1, 6:4 während seines ersten gemeinsamen Davis-Cup-Auftritts auf Anhieb. Bastl bestach bei seinem Doppel- Einstand durch seine Konstanz, Federer erledigte den kreativen Part perfekt.

Ein «Sorgenkind» ist nach wie vor Michel Kratochvil. Der Berner war erneut nicht im Stande, im entscheidenden Moment sein bestes Tennis abzurufen. Kratochvil selber sieht sich wohl nach wie vor als klare Nummer 2 im Team, und aufgrund fehlender Alternativen dürfte er dies (vorerst) auch bleiben. Von einem Spieler, der mittlerweile den Sprung unter die Top 40 geschafft hat, dürfen allerdings auch im Davis Cup entsprechende Leistungen erwartet werden. Im abschliessenden, bedeutungslosen Einzel liess Kratochvil indes keine Wende zum Guten erkennen. Er unterlag Mounir El Aarej, der im Ranking nur an 455. Stelle liegt und anstelle von Hicham Arazi zum Einsatz kam, 2:6, 3:6.

Bleibt Lundgren?
Bei der Suche nach einem neuen Teamchef könnte sich Erfreuliches anbahnen. Peter Lundgren, der interimistisch die Nachfolge von Peter Carter angetreten hatte und seine Amtszeit auf die Begegnung mit Marokko beschränken wollte, signalisierte Bereitschaft über eine mögliche Weiterverpflichtung. «Ich liebe den Davis Cup. Ob ich aber weiter mache oder nicht, hängt primär von meiner Familie ab. Dazu sind ebenso Gespräche nötig wie mit den Spielern und der Verbandspräsidentin», sagte der Schwede. Für Präsidentin Christine Ungricht kam diese «Trendwende» nicht überraschend. «Ich habe gewusst, dass sich Peter ein Hintertürchen offen halten wird.»


Davis Cup. Barrage Weltgruppe/Kontinentalzone.
In Casablanca (Sand). Marokko - Schweiz 1:2. - Younes El Ayanoui s. Michel Kratochvil 7:5, 6:2, 6:2. Hicham Arazi u. Roger Federer 3:6, 2:6, 1:6. El Aynaoui/Karim Alami u. Roger Federer/George Bastl 4:6, 1:6, 4:6.

Federer outstanding

The Swiss-Davis-Cup-Team stays thanks to Roger Federer in the worldgroup. The basilean added 3 points to the 3:2 win over morroco in the relagation round.

92 min. against Hicham Arazi, 105 in the double with George Bastl agains Karim Alami/Younes El Aynaoui, 103 agains El Aynaoui: The Federer Express rolled during these 3 days in Casablanca with an increadable high speed through the Al-Amal-Stadion and took care of, that Switzerland was able to keep her belowings to the worldgroup since 1995. For the seccond time after his "one-man-show" in February 2001 agaist the USA Federer has a blank bilanz after a Davis Cup meeting with 3 wins.

Success for the Duo Federer/Bastl
The basis for the successfull trip to north africa Federer has laid together with Bastl on Saturday. The two harmonised during the 6:4 6:1 6:4 at their first Davis-Cup show up together from the beginning. Bastl impressed at his doubles debut with his constant play, Federer took care of the creative part.

A "problem child" is still Michel Kratochvil. The Berner was once again not able to play his best at the important moments. Kratochvil himself still sees him as clear Nr. 2 in the team and due to the lack of alternatives it might (for the moment) remain like that. From a player who's meanwhile under the top 40, likewise results can be expected also in Davis Cup. At the last, meaningless singles match Kratochvil wasn't able to show signs of a change. He lost to Mounir El Aarej, who's only at Nr. 455 in the ranking and played at the place of Hicham Arazi with 2:6 3.6.

Will Lundgren stay?
At the search for a new teamboss there could be a positive sign in sight. Peter Lundgren, wo's taken over Peter Carters place only for this match against morocco, gave signs that he might change his mind. "I love the Davis Cup. But wether I'm going to continue or not is related to my family first. For that I have to speak with them as also with the players and the section president." said the swede. For President Christine Ungricht this "trendchange" didn't come unexpected. "I knew that Peter kept/keeps the back door open."

Thanks, Mrs. B, for trying to cheer me up

Then I read the article and I start wondering again . . . now I'm sure it's playing on his mind. How could it not?

I hope his late bloomingness kicks into gear soon . . .

Thank you Doris! What a darling! You s/be getting paid for your translation services!

I hope Micha doesn't feel too badly after his 2 losses! Pressure is an ugly thing that affects most players, incl. our Rogi. I don't know how you get past it -- winning is the way but how to achieve it when you're not confident... tough! Hopefully w more experience he'll get used to the pressure.

Mrs. B.:

Have you ordered your Rogi calendar yet? I wonder if I s/do it now or after my vac in a couple of wks... to pay in Euros or Swiss francs, that is the question... [it's expensive alright, better be worth it! -- but anything Rogi is!]

i'll wait a bit, RF. Perhaps they will sell them in a stall in Basel, who knows? But to be quite honest i'm not so gaga over calendars hanging on the wall, if i'll purchase one it will be for a present...mais je trouve sf.30 tres cher pour une calandre...I mean, i can afford it, that's not the problem. I'll always be a Roger fan, but i'm not a teenager anymore...

Here's an other translation from a blick article.


Will Roger make it under the best 8?

Schanghai - Last minute panic in the tennis circuit. The final fight for the master-Cup places has started.

Only the 8 best of the world are allowed to participate at the last highlight of the tennis season of the year. Lleyton Hewitt and Andre Agassi US-Open finalist are first to qualify for the Masters-Cup-Tournament in Schanghai (12. - 17. November). In the middle of the fight for the last places: Roger Federer.

The at the present best Swiss Tennis Player, has to put up a really good run, when the trip to China shall come true. At the inofficial Singles World Championship the seven first placed at the champions race and the best placed winner of one of the last 4 grand slams - at the moment that would be Pete Sampras - are allowed to take part. At the moment Roger Federer takes the 10 position in the Champions Race.

Right now the Thommy Haas (Ger) and Andy Roddick stand infront of the sun of the Münchensteiner. And he'll have to surpass one of the 3 spaniards Juan-Carlos Ferrero, Albert Costa and Carlos Moya. All three of them share the 5th place with a lead of 37 points of Roger.

The fight will be decided at the last two Master Series Events in Madrid and Paris-Percy. When Roger Federer reaches at one of these events the final, he'll get 70 points for a semifinal 45. Not an impossible task when Roger will be able to keep his level like he showed at the Davis Cup in Morocco.



Goooo Roger goooo!!!
