Cincinnati: the draw

11.08.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

The draw for the Masters-1000 tournament in Cincinnati is out, Roger's path to a sixth victory is no easy one.

After a first-round bye he will either play his first match against Mardy Fish (ATP 78) or Philipp Kohlschreiber (ATP 24). In the quarter-finals, a meeting with Rafael Nadal is possible before Andy Murray could then be waiting in the semis.

As defending champion, Roger is aiming at his sixth victory in Cincinnati after 2005, 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2012.

If Federer loses here he drops to number 7 .... there would be no coming back from that as the draws get harder and harder.

BOTING i was going school at that time and it's true what you're saying,we were nuts about him.You could see him in every athletics shop promoting diadora.But times and taste have changed and when i see him in videos of the time,i can't help but think how on earth did i like him,he looked awful........so although i thought he was gorgious at that time,now i don't think that at all.......

Remember all those same talks in the time Bjorn Borg stole the harts of
girls who watched him on the tennis courts. Even on his age these days he is a
great looking guy.

KEMNA,don't get me wrong.It wasn't for you the comment on being direspectful.On the contrary i totally agree with you,i'm just pointing out,that since we have a different taste,we see people's appearance differently.But you are right,although i know that Roger is not objectively beautiful, his character,the way he dresses ,the whole package,make me see him as the most handsome man in sports(since the most beautiful in my life is my boyfriend obviously.....)

And Hulietta, I think Mirka is great !!! Behind every succesfull man there is a succesfull woman. She IS Roger's strenght. She is (in my opinion) perfect for Roger. They look good together. She has always been there for him. Now it is maybe more difficult with the twins, but she is still his support. He would not have reached all of this without her.

But I can also make a comment right? I can say that she should once in a while dress better right? That is not beeing disrecpectful towards her

Hulietta, like I said, I have pictures of Roger in my room. He is the first one I see when I wake up and the last one I see before I go to sleep !!!
To me, he is my hero and I love the way he looks.

I did not mean to disrespect the others. I think Ferrer, Delpo, Berdych and the rest are handsome guys. Not only Dimitrov and Tsonga are handsome.

Hulietta, hey I understand what you mean. I think all the players are handsome. You don't need to be Dimitrov to be handsome. Have you looked at Roger during his Wimby 2003 speech?? He was all acne, bad hair, oily hair, just like all of us.
Now... he is another person. He takes good care of himself and of his skin and he looks dashing and handsome. To me anyway. I don't just watch Roger for his game, I love the way he looks, I really do. You know how many pictures I have of Roger in my room?

what i'm trying to say is that objectively there are standards,beauty usually has to do with the face,not the body.If someone is ugly and has a great body,nobody says that is beautiful.But in the end,even if a million comment on this subject,we will have a million different opinions and that's the real BEAUTY my friend.
FANCYFREE,you thing wrong.If people think the same way about you and they believe your boyfriend is too good for you,would you like them to say it to your face in front of him?

KEMNA,the truth is that some people are not beautiful,saying that they have sth nice,is the way each one of us look at them.For example,i believe that ferrer is beautiful whereas jelena is but an ordinary girl,i don't know what you mean saying she is sooooooo beautiful,you are exagerating.You can see lots of girls like her walking in the street.Saying she looks like a model isn't always a good thing,they are usually skinny and tall,not beautiful.I love Roger,but he is not beautiful,but handsome.

i'm sorry guys,but this discussion about Mirka is disrespectful and without reason,you should stop it.People don't get together because of their weight or the way they look.You can't possibly know how Roger wants his wife to be like.She had two kids and he is constantly training,it's not the same.She is there to watch him play full of anxiety and stress.Don't underestimate the importance of a wife that stands by her husband through rough times and gave him two beautiful girls,it's a shame.......
