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.

Dearest Roger,

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!

hi roger...better you miss one tournament than putting in risk the rest of the season. I think we all understand 100% and your fans in Halle will acept this.

hahaha, I didnt want to say anything about this...but I'll say JENNICO I agree with you :) your thoughts are chared by many...I'm sure. Is good to know many people realize this things, for me is not fair play...anyway.

Good luck Federer, looking for to see you in DC this july after wimbly :D

Greetings :)

Poor Rafa...who has no mind of his own !...He is tired again, he is always tired when he loses, or else he screams for the physio during a match like he did at the FO final in the middle of the first set when Roger was leading ??? I am so happy that Jo-Wilfried beat him in the semi at Queens ! it does not augur well for Rafa going into Wimbledon in another week ! GO ROGI, WIMBY IS WAITING FOR YOU !!!

Dear Roger,
Sorry to hear of your injury but please get the rest you need! I love seeing you play now as much as ever and I look forward to seeing you at Wimbledon. You looked beautiful at the French regardless of the loss in the final. Anyway I pray you feel rejuvenated and confident; you should because you are the best!

nadal fakes all the time because he scares of losing. They now stop taking injury time out because they talk about it too much. in the locker room , you will have some trouble when you do not do things the right way.

I told you these guys know all the tricks in the world to win matches. Fed is different. everything else you do beside your raquet to win matches, take something away from that win.

Please stay well! Looking forward to seeing you raise the winner's trophy at Wimbledon for title #7. Loved seeing your backhand working so well in the French Open. The same genius shot making you came so famous for. Love all the drop shots, too. Will be court side in Cincy. Can't wait to see you defend your title and lift that trophy as well.
