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!”

Hi Roger. I'm going to be YOU for Halloween. Sleep all day and get rested all the while wearing my Nike headband. You be you today and do the same (no need to wear your headband, though). Just rest up and get you and your headbands ready for Shanghai.

I mean poor organizers of Paris Bercy, last year they didn't have neither Federer and Nadal..this year the same..is it Dubai better than Paris Bercy? I think top player should do their best to partecipate to the most important events. I Understand thst Fe

I always wonder what a superman you are, Roger! : D

You must be quite exhausted, i guess.

Take care, i'm looking forward to see you hold the master-cup trophy again.
