Roger withdraws from Paris

30.10.2006 | Tennis

Roger decided today that he will not participate in the Masters Series tournament in Paris. Throughout this last period, Roger competed in three tournaments in less than a month, playing each one through to the final and even taking home every single title, costing him a lot of energy.


 “I have played 90 matches this year and feel exhausted physically as well as mentally. I have thus had to decide to pull out of the tournament in Paris, as I do not want to take any risks regarding my health. The whole tournament in Basel has been a great, but also emotionally draining experience. This has played a strong role in taking my decision. I am really sorry and would like to apologise to the tournament organisers and all of you fans. I hope to see you in Shanghai!”

Good thinking, Roger. Pete Sampras was the first of the professional players publicly to complain about a tournament schedule which was burning the athletes out. The functionaries care only about money. There are always more athletes. It's about time

Dear Roger

This was the only course of action. To have entered Paris physically and mentally tired would have only resulted in failure. No fan would have wanted to see this.
On the contrary,speaking for myself,I am even more optimistic that this deci

I'm glad to decided to pull out Roger. It was probably the right thing to do long term. Hopefully, you can play Paris next year, because *hopefully* the tour can figure things out by then and arrange it so that not every single player in the top ten is in

Dearest Roger,
you needn't apologise. This is the right decision, and no one has the right to blame you, not even if the Paris Masters tournament becomes boring without you (and definitely that's the case:)). You deserve a week of relax.
We, your fans a

Roger, I'm agree with your decision, and with other fans who were worried last weeks with your health, there are a lot of tournaments, and you could decide which are the most importants if not you will have an injury, nobody here wants that, we love you

You made a well-thought decision. It is right to take a rest on your hectic & physically demanding tennis sched. You are doing your body a very good favor and in turn you will enjoy its rewards sooner or later. Do not worry about the tennis org

Good decision Roger. Everyone should have expected this, Roger already played so much this past month, if he were to play this tournament, its like playing two grand slams in a row! It's just expected for him to do so. I can't wait to catch the Shanghai t
