Not an easy draw

23.08.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 2

The draw for the US Open is out: Roger's first-round opponent is Slovenia's Grega Zemlja (ATP 61). His path from there is rather steep - he could already play Rafael Nadal in the quarter-finals. The Spaniard is the favourite for the title in Flushing Meadows after the double in Montreal/Cincinnati.

A meeting with Sam Querrey (ATP 29) is possible in the round of the last 16 before Roger could play Kei Nishikori (ATP 12) in the quarters. 

 

After his five titles from 2004-2008 in New York, Roger is now aiming at his 18th Grand Slam title.

MY DEAR FRIENDS ALL,

SERIOUSLY, LOOKING AT THE CALM CONFIDENCE AND SERENE COMFORT IN ROGER'S EYES IN THE PHOTOS, DON'T YOU HAVE THE FEELING THAT THE LOOK IN ROGER'S EYES IS SAYING " I'M HERE NOW, AND HERE'S EXACTLY WHERE I WANT TO BE."?

I GET THAT FEELING LOOKING AT HIM AT THIS SOCIAL GATHERING. I HOPE YOU ALL GET THE SAME IMPRESSION LOOKING AT HIS COMPOSURE, & I HOPE YOU ALL FEEL THE SAME WAY.

- THANKS AGAIN - LET'S DO IT TOGETHER WITH ROGER.

Rogi, I think you have someone really look into this draw situation. It has been consistently difficult for you and swimmingly easy for Nadal. It can not be random when it is always that way. Yes, I think it's been rigged for Nadal these last 5 years and rigged against you! I am thinking those IBM guys who prepare the draw. They have always figured out the permutations ahead of time and just pull up the one that works for their guy on draw day! Please have your guys really look into this.

Well said Ramcharan! Agree with your post at 9:29pm, though I feel Roger is a man on mission and only Rafa or Djokovic can pose challenges. Time will tell...

Allez Roger! Cant wait for Roger's match!

Terrific comeback from Tomic against the lefty Spaniard Albert Ramos... He definitely seemed to improve his mental strength.. Could be a tough opponent should he meet our Champ in R4..

Oh no! Tomic is still there! :)
