Roger withdraws

16.05.2006 | Tennis

Roger - three-time champion (2002, 2004, 2005) - as well as Rafael Nadal have pulled out of the Hamburg Masters.


Due to the long and exhausting tournaments just behind him, Roger feels the need to take a break in order to fully regenerate. Roger and Mirka travelled to Hamburg this morning in order to meet with Walter Knapper, the tournament director.


In a tumultuous day at the clay-court tuneup for the French Open, Australian Open runner-up Marcos Baghdatis retired because of dizziness and stomach pains, and former No. 1 Carlos Moya and 2003 Hamburg champ Guillermo Coria slumped again with first-round exits. Other stars such as David Nalbandian, Andy Roddick, Lleyton Hewitt or Andre Agassi will not be starting in Hamburg.

Sorry but I am mad. I am a big fan, but I would think that Roger an his management after so many years should be able to foresee if his schedule is too stressful. Do not say you are coming when you are not! If I had known this earlier I

Volevo dirti che secondo me sei il piu grande della storia del tennis..
Per perdere 2 o 3 partite con Rafa, non dice lo contrario...sono sicuro che vincerai a Roland Garros, ma no so si quest`anno o l`
