Roger withdraws from Paris

30.10.2006 | Tennis

Roger decided today that he will not participate in the Masters Series tournament in Paris. Throughout this last period, Roger competed in three tournaments in less than a month, playing each one through to the final and even taking home every single title, costing him a lot of energy.

 

 “I have played 90 matches this year and feel exhausted physically as well as mentally. I have thus had to decide to pull out of the tournament in Paris, as I do not want to take any risks regarding my health. The whole tournament in Basel has been a great, but also emotionally draining experience. This has played a strong role in taking my decision. I am really sorry and would like to apologise to the tournament organisers and all of you fans. I hope to see you in Shanghai!”

Roger I think it's a smart decition due to the amount of matches you played this year. Do always what your body tells you because thats what took you where you are right now, the Nº 1 position, in & out the courts.

So releived that you are being conservative and are giving yourself the much needed rest for Shanghai. It is amazing to watch you set so many records each year. The greatest tragedy would be to see you sidelined due to a serious injury as a result of ex

Dear Roger,
I expected as much because I knew you had to be very tired. I bought my Christmas cards today from Pier 1 imports and the proceeds go to UNICEF. I thought of my favorite athlete when I saw them! I also can't wait to get my bear.
Good luck
