5-times Halle Champion pulls |out

06.06.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 2

Dear Fans

I've unfortunately decided to pull out of The Gerry Weber Open in Halle, Germany. I am very disappointed as its one of my absolute favorite tournaments on the ATP Tour, but my body, especially my groin, really needs a rest. After talking with my team this morning, I feel that its way to risky to take a chance on aggravating it even more before Wimbledon.
I send my very best wishes to all my fans in Halle, and again I am so sorry I can't go this year. But I will see you next year.

Yours,
Roger

ramcharan,
these guys have a lot of tricks. Before the match, his opponents have to wait a long time for him to get out of the locker room, which make them irrited. besides that he has to take a long time to place his 3 bottles and sucks his stuff from before getting to the court. It is very ennoying, I would not have enough patient for all this stuff. they say he is humble, we have to understand that, because when your limited, you need to manage yourself to avoid questions.

flat-return,

Everyone knows (even some commentators) it's a fake excuse. He was saying he didn't want to put any excuse and at the same time mentioning he couldn't play well due to injury. He started the drama right after the first game and creating unnecessary delays to the match and making Ferrer's life miserable on court. It's becoming a habit for him that past couple of years. Hope somebody puts an end to his deeds.

I do not beleive in anything nadal says. I remember in australia, nadal said he was injured, but I am telling you if ferrer did not play aggressive tennis nadal would win that, because while he was faking injury, he was diving after every single ball. he said he was injured to take ferrer attention out of the match. In the press room they ask where your injury is at, he answered i do not know. What happen, i do not know. These guys got tricks.

We all know Nadal and his uncle are excuse givers and his on-court tactics are dishonest at best. So he will never be remembered for having the class of Federer or the pure brilliance. His uncle looks like he schools Nadal rather than coaches him. Federer made it to the top with little help from coaches and more talent, will and belief. So who is the real inspiration? Federer.

Good luck at Wimbledon! I'm living in London and already got my tent to camp at the queue! See you at Centre Court! Best wishes!
