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.

Your advice sounds good to me !!! I am not an expert, just a player and lover of tennis, but i appreciate that fitness of mind and body is essential for success in any sport especially single sport like tennis. Roger has all the tools...the best quality !
at this time in his career,if he wants to stay on top, and I believe he does ...
I agree that he needs a good "tune up",to improve his game.

***MONALEN, you don't know is what you said in your two posts, and that's exactly right! Only the player knows. We don't even know about other factors. If you followed tennis for years you should know that. We are not privy to things, and can't make judgments, and are not entitled to it anyway! One can make a judgment on one's own game, life, etc, no one else. Roger, you know how to ignore the comments that come from a lack of understanding tourneys, and all factors that play into it. Go at it!

FOCUS. BE CONFIDENT. You can beat them. Good Luck Roger! Love lots! :))

Stay focused, stay aggressive, no lead is safe, put it away at the net, don't just toss it back!

Good luck, you're the best!

Ps. And if that forehand starts thinking for itself, limit the length of rallies, you'll need quick points. That's all the advice I can give for free ;)
