Roger has arrived in Halle!... where he apparently got married to Ralf Weber

Here's another picture of Roger:



According to a message on the homepage of the tournament he said that he is happy that he can play at the Gerry Weber Open again. He would have arrived by great weather and sunshine and hopes that this beautiful weather is going to stay the next days.

By the way, I was in Halle today and the tournament director announced after the legends match of Myskina/Edberg - Navratilova/Stich in an interview that Roger is going to play his first match on Wednesday

They played their only match so far in Halle 2 years ago. Roger won 7:6 6:4 but the German served for the first set. After the match he said he would like to get a revenge against Roger when Roger would be 40 years old

my only concern is "how is his body ?"

I'm not confident at all for this grass season : hasn't been good since his come back from his break, quite slow, not a good serve, not a good return, as if he was not fit physically. His shots are OK beside that, for instance he hit the ball well against Del Potro.

Pity because his results have been good enough so far but NOW, in next two months, comes the important part of the year.

I have more hopes for the US Open than for Wimbledon actually.

Federer has confirmed to Swiss media he had a hip issue in Madrid and Rome which got better for Paris but he was afraid of overworking it so he may have held back. I think as bad as it is, it can prove good in the end.

At last year's French he peaked, intentionally or not, there and had nothing much left for Wimbey because of niggles. If he can peak for Wimbledon and ride the wave until the end of the Olympics, he might go into the USO as favourite and even #1. Who knows.

I'll wait and see but I am hopeful grass can rejuvenate a healthy Fed's game. I am definitely much more confident than I was in 2010 and in 2011 after seeing his first few matches at SW19.

Don't forget he had so many GREAT performances this year.
Vs Delpo - Nadal in IW
Vs Murray in Dubai
Vs Berdych - Tipsy in Madrid
Vs Seppi in Rome

So... I actually think he needs consistensy, and, as I said in another thread, every match is in his racquet and not the rival's.

i might add Del Potro @ Rotterdam final and JCF @ Roma.

also, love Fed's Dad. and his whole family most classy tennis parents on tour by far. Just had to say it.

Thanks for the info about the hip issue, I'm very grateful for every news on that topic Fed usually hides his issues well but they are very important, esp. on grass, where he needs his best physical condition.

Yes I hope it will be good, and it's good if he managed to not overwork it in RG.

If he's well from now, everything is possible.

He looked sometimes nervous recently, which proves that he's very motivated for weeks to come, which is good.

I don't rate that high the performances in Madrid and Roma, but until Indian Wells he had great performances including all of his matches against Del Po, especially Rotterdam, Nadal in Indian Wells, Murray in Dubai, Tomic in Australia ...f

As far as the rankings are concerned, a semifinal in Halle might be important in the end,

because in case Fed wins Wimbledon and reaches the semifinal in Halle (Raonic ),

he would become number 1 after Wimbledon if Djokovic loses in the semifinal.

If he wins Wimbledon but doesn't reach the SF in Halle, Djokovic would still be number 1 if he reached the semifinal.

It would need Djokovic to lose before Wimbledon semifinal to get the number 1.

Note that if Fed does as well as Nadal in Wimbledon+Halle, he will be ahead of him in the rankings after Wimbledon
