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.

Cincinnati shows Roger is capable of winning the US Open. Roger can beat Nadal -- just 6 points (out of 196) and 3 games (out of 31) separated winner from loser. Nadal played at a higher level against Roger than in Canada against Djokovic.
How Roger performs in USO will largely depend on his focus and effort to prepare for his matches. Don't talk, Roger. DO.
At Wimbledon, Roger was too distracted (ATP Player Council, Make A Wish, Sponsors, Interviews, etc.) before his loss to Stakhovsky.

Dear Rogerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr,

I'm sorry for probably hurting you by saying that you'd have a tough time beating Nadal, but that's true. Nadal is as good as Djokovic. Murray lacks consistency at times but beieve me, if you can shoot aces and attack more often than get into rallies, you'd have a chance to win this time. Mind you, the players are dangerous, and anyone could beat you. If only I could see you hammer shots like bullets, I'd assure you of the trophy but ...... just think !!!

Ramcharan :

Thanks for that quote from Roger! It is very inspiring to see such wonderful commitment to the sport from Federer. I cannot think of another sportsman who is more in love with their sport than Roger! Sachin Tendulkar in Cricket is comparable to Roger but can't think of others. Can you guys think of anyone else?

Hey Champ, liked the sentence in your interview today "I'm not here to make Quarters, I'm here to win the tournament...". No matter how far you go here, that's the kind of spirit you need to have here.. You've won 5 straight here, just go for the 6th... I'm sure you're gonna try harder and nail it...
