All I am hoping for is that Rogi will be 100% when he enters Dubai. As long as he is playing his best tennis, it doesn't matter who his opponent is.

I am not worried. I just hope Roger is feeling well. He knows what he has to do to beat Tim. Roger will get him this time. Roger is smart enough to not get him. I am so sick and tired of people going well tim has the best volleys and this and that. Roger is only 22 and I bet Tim's volleys were no where near as good as Roger's at 22. Roger's S&V game will get stronger as time goes on. I think Roger if he gets passed Marat will be fine. David might not even make the semis so who knows.

Here we go again! I thought somehow being #1 gave you the privilege of slightly easier draws... not so today! Someone mentioned Pandy in Scottsdale and what "tough" draw he w face... yeah, right.

Anyhoo... we have to hope Rogi is fully fit and ready to beat Marat again... also, why do we assume that Tim will make it to meet Rogi? If he does, Rogi knows what he has to do... he's certainly had enough opportunities.

Re: S&V, remember that Sampras didn't start out as a S&Ver, so give Rogi some time to develop it... Tim's almost 30 and has that many more yrs of experience than Rogi.

Let's cheer loudly [since Doris isn't here].

HOPP, ROGI!!!

Defend your title!


Of course Nalby is in Rogi's half also... how come he never plays Coria?? Weird...

After sleeping through the anger for the night, I'll stop complaining about the draw now.

Go Rogi! Hope you're fit and well for this tournament!

As sick and tired I am about the draws Rogi has got since the last four tournaments, I am taking it positively.

Rogi has got what it takes to beat his all the guys in his way to the final and that certainly includes Henman. I'm sure, he'll be more than motivated to prove that he can beat Henman this time round!


Gooooooooo Rogi!!!!!!!!!!!!

The funny thing is #1 and #2 seeds in theory have the same chance in the difficulty of a draw.
Compare Coria's draw this week to Rogers.
Or Ferreros in Rotterdam to Rogers.
Or even Roddicks in AO and Houston to Rogers

Dubai is a very good tournament and has a lot of tough players, that is why Roddick is hiding, so it won't be very easy for Roger to win it again and his old friend David is there as well.

No, this draw wasn't rigged and it wouldn't make sense to have their two biggest drawcards play in the 1st round.

Whose to say Henman and Roger will meet in this tournament? Anything can happen and when the next time it happens, then Roger better have this thinking cap on and change a few things to have a better performance against Tim.

Actually the bad draws aren't that bad, if Roger is good enough on the given day then he will win the matches. Though if he loses people will start making excuses about the tough draw, boo hoo.

I thought you're always arguing against the idea thinking that given any good day, Rogi can win matches???

I don't think excuses will be made about the tough draw if he loses. The fact is that to blame on the draw for losses just doesn't make sense, especially coming from bunch of Rogi fans who so were thought as "Rogi can win as long as he play his best" So the only excuses will still be..."he loses coz he didn't play his best"

First time it happens, it's funny; second time, it's frustrating; 3rd time??? Well...just accept it.

Isy, what I meant I was hope people don't make excuses because the draw was too tough that Roger lost, that is for Roddick fans and Dirk to make excuses.

It will be stupid to blame tough draw for losses if at the same time the fans like to believe their favourite is the best...

Just like Rogi recent losses to Henman in Rotterdam, we can only be frustrated how he just couldnt overcome Henman. But when we start thinking that Rogi didn't win Rotterdam because he was unlucky enough to draw Tim...then that'll look pathetic and stupid imo.

So far as I had read, most are kind of happy that Rogi has another go to play vs Tim, but many are also frustrated to see either Safin or Rogi has to go in the first round.

"bad serves day"..."didn't serve his normal"..."serving % is not even 60 or 70"...this is what I normally hear/read if Andy losses. I just don't get it, why will people keep saying that if at the same time they're trying to establish that Andy is much more a player than just the serves?

Bad play excuses are normally valid as in most cases for a top player to be beaten, the top player usually wasn't playing their best - it is sort of like saying a top player was outplayed on the day.

What annoys me are the "tired", "injured", "distracted" excuses, they are pathetic and if a player takes the court then they certainly should not be used.

Roger seems always to grab a wrong ranking at the wrong time. I'm more referring to the rankings last year. For example, if he had seeded #3 instead of #2 last USO...etc. It's unforgivable to say that he should grab #3 instead of #2 then or #2 instead of #1 now, but I just can't help thinking of this odd thing...

As long as Roger takes part in a tourney, his counterpart regarding the seeding will be safe enough to go deep coz Roger will always be made to do him a good favor to take all the toughest opponents in his way...

As far as I read we Roger fans rarely make excuses for his losses (OK maybe some do in your eyes but actually not that many). We do complain about the draw but when the match is on it's on with nothing to do with the draw. I think most of us are looking more for the inside of his game that caused his loss rather than make stupid excuses.

For this sake, never liked what JC said after the AO semi that if he'd been fully healthy he'd have beaten Roger...sth like that...
