Gerry Weber Open 2012

11.06.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

After the end of the clay season it is finally time for the green surface! Especially with the Olympics coming up - on the holy lawn in Wimbledon - this year's grass season is certainly a highlight in Roger's career. He will compete in the Gerry Weber Open in Halle this week.

After a first round bye, Roger either plays Germany's Florian Meyer (ATP 35) or America's Tim Smyczek (ATP 206). In the quarter-finals, our champ could then meet Canada's Milos Raonic (ATP 22). A possible semi-final against Alexander Dolgopolow (ATP 19) could then be the last step before a final clash with Rafael Nadal.

Roger, I think your backhand slice is the key to beating Djokovic and Nadal. I watched several highlights of your match against both of them and I noticed that when you use your backhand slice offensively you usually win the point.

Good luck with the grass dessin, Roger! I think u have to play serve and volley more often. U have won Wimbledon with those tactics and a lot of serve and volley players did! Sampras, Becker, Ivanisevic, McEnroe, Krajicek. I know the circumstances had changed over the years with heavier balls and little bit slower courts. But i think hoe shorter the rallies are, the better for you I think. Good luck!

Part II
People stop and stare. They don't bother me.
For there's no where else on earth that I would rather be.
Let the time go by, I won't care if I
Can be here on the street where you live.

The best of luck in your match against Meyer.

With you always.

Part I
I have often walked down this street before;
But the pavement always stayed beneath my feet before,
All at once am I Several stories high.
Knowing I'm on the street where you live.
Are the lilac trees in the heart of town ?
Can you hear a lark in any other part of town ?
Does enchantment pour Out of ev'ry door ?
No, it's just on the street where you live !
And oh ! The towering feeling
Just to know somehow you are near.
The overpowering feeling
That any second you may suddenly
