Hamburg: the draw

15.07.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger is back on court in Hamburg - a clay-court tournament he hasn't participated in since 2008. He won the tournament four times in the past:
2002 (victory against Safin), 2004 (victory against Coria), 2005 (victory against Gasquet) and 2007 (victory against Nadal).

After a first round bye our champ will probably play against the winner of the match between Germany's Daniel Brands (ATP 53) or Italy's Paolo Lorenzi (ATP 70) on Wednesday.

In the second round, he could meet Latvia's Ernests Gulbis (ATP 36) before an encounter against Alexandr Dolgopolov (ATP 24) is possible. In the semifinals, Poland's Jerzy Janowicz (ATP 17) could be his opponent before a clash with Germany's Tommy Haas (ATP 11) in the final. 

"At Wimbledon, it was strange to go out so early and I didn't know what to do," said Roger about his participation in Hamburg and Gstaad. "But I had a clear plan 48 hours later to play at Hamburg and Gstaad."

Well done Roger, it is not good not being able to watch you. I am pleased you got through, you need to get through some rounds to get used to that racquet. Hope it went well as you hoped. I hope the next match is an even better one.
Good luck and take care.

Glad you won the match! Hope the rest of the tourney goes well.

Hmm, finally closed on the 4th Match point... Anyway you made it. Seemed little rusty... But it's the 1st match after that shock upset and that too against a tough opponent.. Good that you played your 1st match here instead of the Hard court swing...

Took awhile for our man to close it out but he did.

Love you Feds.

Can anyone watching report how he played with the new racket?

Thanks :))

Correction: 'not being able'

BTW, Gulbis is out! Hajek is your next opponent... It seems like Gulbis is going back to his old mental state (now being able to beat the top guys after being close to win). I mean he was close to beating Nadal twice, Haas last week, Monfils at FO. Such a waste of talent...

Something tells me he is getting used to his new racquet!!

Great and impressive recovery! And Gulbis just lost from Hajek.
