Roger withdraws

16.05.2006 | Tennis

Roger - three-time champion (2002, 2004, 2005) - as well as Rafael Nadal have pulled out of the Hamburg Masters.

 

Due to the long and exhausting tournaments just behind him, Roger feels the need to take a break in order to fully regenerate. Roger and Mirka travelled to Hamburg this morning in order to meet with Walter Knapper, the tournament director.

 

In a tumultuous day at the clay-court tuneup for the French Open, Australian Open runner-up Marcos Baghdatis retired because of dizziness and stomach pains, and former No. 1 Carlos Moya and 2003 Hamburg champ Guillermo Coria slumped again with first-round exits. Other stars such as David Nalbandian, Andy Roddick, Lleyton Hewitt or Andre Agassi will not be starting in Hamburg.
