:eek: I must have dreamed it, but I could have sworn I saw somewhere that he pulled out :eek::eek:

Thank goodness no. Sydney is going to be very interesting this year, it's a very strong field. Good luck, Roger! :)

:) Hi Doris!

Here's an article from blick:

Artikel vom 7. Januar 2003 / Quelle: Blick

Federer
Der Jäger ist jetzt ein Gejagter <?? what is Jager??

VON CÉCILE KLOTZBACH AUS AUSTRALIEN

TENNIS SYDNEY

Wie ein Profi eben: Federer beim Stretching.
FOTO: ANDREAS BLUMENTHAL

SYDNEY – Der Titelverteidiger von Sydney ist da: Roger Federer – braun gebrannt, beliebt und ein bisschen müde... <braun -- tanned? mude? Corretja said this in Gstaad!

Einen Tag vor seinem Erstrundenmatch gegen Lucky Loser Franco Squillari (in der Nacht auf heute) flog er morgens aus Doha ein. Weil es nur wenige Flüge aus der Wüstenstadt gibt, blieben Roger, für den das Turnier bereits am letzten Donnerstag geendet hatte, sein Coach Peter Lundgren und Physio Pavel Kovac länger als erwartet in Katar hängen.

Dann endlich Abflug nach Dubai, ein paar Stunden Aufenthalt und schliesslich Ankunft im Känguru-Land. Mit acht Stunden Zeitverschiebung und zwei Stunden Kurzschlaf in den Knochen stand Roger wenig später mit einem müden Sparringpartner Lundgren auf dem Tenniscourt. «Aber ich fühle mich insgesamt fit und bereit für das Turnier. In Doha blieb genügend Zeit, um zu trainieren», sagt Federer. Er ist gerne im warmen Australien, bei den «Aussies», die mit ihrer lockeren Mentalität gut zu ihm passen. <??? acht what? what about Doha?

Und die ihn offensichtlich mögen: Kein Schritt des Schweizers, ohne dass er von Autogrammjägern umzingelt wird oder mit Fans für Fotos posieren muss. «Seit dem Masters in Schanghai ist das so. Ich bin jetzt viel bekannter als vorher», sagt Roger – bescheiden lächelnd und freundlich wie immer. <he's signing autographs and doing photo sessions?? Schritt des Schweizers??

Die Nummer 6 der Welt hat sich nach dem Erfolgsjahr 2002 nicht verändert. Aber Ranglisten-Jäger Roger ist zum Gejagten geworden. Unter Druck? «Hier in Sydney gar nicht. Es ist ein kleines Turnier, wo ich hauptsächlich Matchpraxis sammeln will.» Und Roger fügt hinzu: «An grösseren, wichtigeren Anlässen sieht das allerdings anders aus.» Wie beim Australien Open...
<??

This is odd. I had a bad feeling even before i saw the result and now that i've seen the result the feeling is VERY bad. :sad:

What happened Rogi? maybe he's saving it all for the AO. Hope so. And Lapentti lost real bad too. What, did they have the same thing to eat or sthing? *sigh*

Well, in other news, Guga won his match against a quali and now he plays another quali. What is it w him and quali's? and of all ppl it's Michael Russell! you all remember him?! he had MP against Guga at the FO in 2001. *sigh*

Hi RF
Sorry I really haven't got time for translations right now.
Just said that flying out of Doha was kind of awquad as there aren't so many flights. And that Roger is followed by fans for every step he's doing. It's like that since Shanghai he said. He's pretty popular among the fans (oh yes he is :p)
And he likes it to be in aussi land where the mantality matches perfectly with his.

Well the ranking hunter is now the hunted one (Jäger = hunter)
Müde = tired and you got braun = tanned right.

Lily
I had the very same bad feeling when I found out who he had to play first...

....guess we both were right with our feelings.

Well good luck now in the AO Roger!!

Opps even more bad news!!

Apparently Roger has injured his adductores on the right leg.....
... he felt the injury already in Doha. Now he'll see with his Phisio when he'll travel to Melbourne. Looks like he's really worried about it.

Well keep the fingers crossed for you Roger that it isn't as bad and that you still will be able to play AO!!
Get well soon Roger!!

:( Oh no Rogi! I was wondering how he was physically!! Oh pls let this be a minor injury!! Poor Rogi... I hate it when I don't know what's going on... when he lost to JMG in Doha we couldn't get scores for hours and ILR and everyone had this feeling that it was NOT a good sign and we were right!! :( Rogi must be feeling really bad. I knew he couldn't just LOSE to Squillari [come on!]... I was worried it was his mental [which he still needs to work on -- once that's sorted, he'll really be unbeatable (even Maratski is working on his!;) ).

I hope the crowd wasn't hard on him!:sad:

:( Poor Rogi!

Federer was hampered by a leg problem which he said needed immediate treatment but would not stop him playing in the Australian Open next week.

"So long as I can walk and play a little bit, I'll go on court," he said. "I'm not considering pulling out."


:(



Get better soon, sweetie! :( :angel:

Well I think he's gorgeous AND a doll!! ;) :drool: I'll be changing my avatar regularly and I'll tell you which one is a "doll" pic!!

So you're doing REAL exams now? Hope they all go well but it's hard to study, isn't it? I was never any good at it -- how I managed to get a few degrees is beyond me sometimes...:p
