Roger and No. 1s honoured

26.08.2013 | Off Court, Starseite 1

Before the start of the US Open, an unprecedented gathering of No. 1s took place at the ATP Heritage programme's No. 1 Celebration in New York. The event marked the 40th anniversary of the establishment of the Emirates ATP Rankings. Ilie Nastase, who became the first ATP World No. 1 on 23 August 1973, was present to be honoured on the night, along with successors John Newcombe, Jimmy Connors, Bjorn Borg, John McEnroe, Ivan Lendl, Mats Wilander, Stefan Edberg, Jim Courier, Marcelo Rios, Carlos Moya, Yevgeny Kafelnikov, Gustavo Kuerten, Lleyton Hewitt, Juan Carlos Ferrero, Andy Roddick, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and of course Roger. 

Roger thanked those that came before him, like childhood idol Stefan Edberg. "It was important for me to have someone to look up to. I know there's been a huge sacrifice at the players' level, just this generation and the players sitting here tonight, and even before that. We've put such huge effort in the game, and that's a platform we can enjoy today."

I am not giving up on him or attacking him, but there is more danger ahead and he was doing so well....

Sorry to say, but Roger needs to get this done in 3 sets.
There are far more dangerous players ahead.
He was a break up. He should not lose this set.

I don't like to see him irratated

This is silly. I dont understand why he plays anymore. He obviously doesnt have any will to play. You can see it on his face. No will at all.

Roger Federer, the man on fire... 1 set to go!!

Federer is serving good. Making a nice clean kill! Should he win, he will play Carlos Berlocq, who went 5 sets!

Nadal’s next opponent would have played a 5 setter too.

Haas-Mathieu on court. That could be the match of the day!
