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!”

Reading the comments, i think everyone here supports your decission skipping Paris. We were all concerned because after playing (and winning of course) so much u r obvoius exhasuted, even you can beat the others players very quicly.
I really

hi ROG.
u made a good decision in pulling out. Coz i would have been disappointed if u had contested and had a replay of the cincinatti tournament when u were knocked out by Andy Murray because u had not rested. and another thing u have made it possible

Enjoy your time off Rogi, your quality time with your dear ones and charge batteries for Shanghai. I guess Mirka and yourself will have time to do some home decor inspired in the exquisite japanese taste :)

Dear Roger,

A very wise decision. Your health and well-being are of prime importance.

Have a well earned rest before Shanghai. The tournament is televised here in the UK, so I am looking forward to seeing you playing there and lifting the Masters
