Stockholm ten years later

18.10.2010 | Tennis

Welcome back to Stockholm, Roger! Our champ is playing the Stockholm Open this week - his last participation in the tournament in Sweden's capital dates back to 2000 (where he lost to Andreas Vinciguerra in round two).


Roger, the number one seed, will play either America's Taylor Dent (ATP 101) or Poland's Michal Przysiezny (ATP 91) after a first round bye. He could then meet Stanislas Wawrinka (ATP 21) in the quarter finals and Ivan Ljubicic (ATP 17) in the semis.


The two other top seeds Robin Söderling (ATP 5) and Tomas Berdych (ATP 6) are on the other half of the drawn and thus potential opponents for the final.

It's good for Roger to have the No 1 ranking as a goal, as I can clearly see that achievable by next summer if he keeps up his level. I don't think he needs to play or will play any additional tournaments next year but the regular Master's 1000 events. He

Dear Friends and Fans,

In some ATP Tennis Finals, there are less spectators than when Roger practises ! This link is from the kindness of *TRX*

Roger was practising in Stockholm's Arena. It felt to me like at least 3000 people there.

lux lady* Excellent post as always. I can always depend on you to straighten out some who are not quite as knowledgeable or kind as you are. I agree with everything you said. I feel Roger knows what he is doing and I don't ever second guess him. He didn't

Dear "norinch",

Thank you for posting the beautiful poem (p.9). I, too, believe Roger is the man who believes he can. I will gladly wait for him.

"Nobody grows old by the number of years. We grow old by deserting our own ideals."

All my love

I want to share this beautiful poem with all of you. I love it.
