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."

These could be interesting tournaments if Roger is trying out a new racquet. It would explain why he has included Hamburg and Gstaad. I did wonder at the time he announced them whether he was going to try something out. If he does have a new racquet and he does not win as much as we like or expect, we must be patient and encourage him to continue with it. Long term it could be a good move. Roger has a plan, I am sure of it, let us give him support! Good luck Roger, you can do this.

I wonder how many times Roger would have won this tournament if it hadn't been degraded to a 500? It was one of his best tournaments back in the day.

Good luck Roger!
