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."

Great decision Maestro and we thank you for it because you are so missed. We are so excited to see you play on any surface. Again it's not an easy draw but hope you'll have a good time doing it.

Good luck Roger,i have a very positive feeling.I think that is important for a champion to have losses like the one you had in Wimbledon,because it gives a new boost.It shakes the athlete a lot and has to see things from a new perspective.I thing these points will be gained easily!

hi Roger,nice to hear you'llplay in Hamburg.I'm sure you could win every tournment.You need only to believe in what you do.I think you didn't play too bad in Wimbledon,you were just unlucky and Stackosky too lucky because his serve worked all the time and yours didn't.you can defeat everyone.Be confident ,remember who you are and what you won.You have to show noone nothing.Enjoy yourself ,all my love,my hero.
