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!”

once again a smart decision-it has been a long year and would not be a bad idea to have this the end of your season. You have played relentlesly and with the highest quality of tennis all year and exceeded all expectations. Thanks for a great season, but

Hey Roger...I just want you to be well rested and prepared for the Shanghai Masters Cup!!! All the best with that...have a good restful week:))

It's a good decision you know.
When I knew your next tour will be 2 days after Basel, I'm afraid that the same thing that happened in Cincinnati will repeat again.

Well, I'm sure you don't want to break your winning streak because yo're exhausted rit

Having bought tickets and spent a lot of money to go to Paris to see Roger I am absolutely gutted!! especially as I only finalised my trip after Madrid when Roger said he would definately play Paris, I love Roger and I would never critisize him under norm

That would be a good decision, Rog. As i can see, you've been playing every week and as you go near the finals there's no rest day and then you go another tournament. It's really exhausting even to think of it. I think organizers of the ATP tennis should
