Key Biscayne: the draw

23.03.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger left California and traveled to the East Coast of the USA in order to play the Sony Ericsson Open on Key Biscayne in Florida.

Like the other top seeds, Roger is exempt from the first round. He will either face Fabio Fognini (ATP 53) or Radek Stepanek (ATP 68) in round two. He could later take on Argentinia's Juan Monaco (ATP 35), before a meeting with either Marcos Baghdatis (ATP 24) or Mikhail Youzhny (ATP 14) is possible. Then, Andy Roddick, the defending champion, could be up in the quarter finals.

Roger, winner in 2005 and 2006, is in the same half of the draw as top-seeded Rafael Nadal. The two champions could meet in the semifinals.

I can`t beleave the stupids things I´ve heard about U nowadays.... I only say you that you´re really a genius......and we admire you, we clap you and we love you....3 is only a cold number. Nobody could give us so many happiness in those years.......and I´m sure you´ll be number 1 again if you can, because your tennis is perfect, and your physique too. So, go ahead!!! I´ll be always supporting you, in spite I cried a lot when I´ve seen you lost. Good luck in Miami Master!!! ♥

Other than his wavering focus, my concerns with his game are a possible lack of confidence in his back hand at times and the consistent missing of his wide slice serve. I have complete confidence in Federer and coach Annacone.
Let's all hope that Federer can get it together in Miami. A win there would be a great boost going in to the clay court season. Remember folks it was two years ago when things looked worse after that disastrous Australian Open. Later that year he won RG and Wimbledon.

I have seen some criticism of Federer's coach Paul Annacone on previous threads. Spare a thought for him. There is nothing wrong with Federer's game. It's Federer's head that is the problem. His mind is wandering at moments in a match. It takes a few minutes to get his focus back by which time it is too late.
It was just 4 months ago that we were all celebrating his triumph in London. Surely the great one can get it back on track.

No 3? You've played incredibly consistent high standard tennis since Wimbledon, semis or better in every tournament.
Rankings now depend on how long Rafa and Novak can stay consistent and healthy.
Sure, you can always try new things, mix it up more - better than being too predictable for those opponents like Novak who have now played you often. Rafa and Novak are Geminis, they think and change a lot. So is Steffi Graf. There might be something in that mercurial temperament that helps in tennis.

What’s wrong with Roger now ?
1. His serve doesn't hurt like it used to.
2. A defensive backhand - It's not low or fast enough. His attacking backhand is often leading to many unforced errors when his rivals stick him on that side, as Djokovic did in the Indian Wells semis.
3. Distracted focus - It's one of his biggest issues of the moment. While he can still play some matches at a very high level, he also can play others in which he commits a lot of unforced errors.

I have seen all ur match against Novak and I think there is nothing wrong in ur game.... I think its time to take a big decision whether u wanna change ur racket or carry ur game with same racket...U know got natural gift about tennis if u take new racket that create more speed then Novak can never beat u. As u are greatest player of all time. Sorry for saying u to take new racket because it hurts when u lose a game. I mean u can new racket as a trail in ur practice match to see any new changes
