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.

Roger, clearly you will not be able to make it past the quarter-finals. Too bad that you will be meeting Rafa. Anyway, you are 32 now and I am content to see you get to the quarters.

Best of luck for this tournament!
One match at a time. First make a good start. I will be always with you, cheering you with all my heart and at the top of my voice.

" NOT A EASY DRAW " - the best person to answer that will be our main man ROGER ! If asked "were any of your 17 draws towards your Grand Slam victories easy ?" He would probably laugh ! Dudes and dudets they have all NOT been easy - they are Grand Slams and he mastered those victories ! Roger all the best and inshallah master this one !!! ALL THE FANS ARE BEHIND YOU AND WISH YOU THE WIN OF US OPEN 2013 ! May you shine as you have done for the 17, before the 18 ! Bravo to Roger !

JUST WATCHED ROGER ON TV INTERVIEW ON EUROSPORTS NEWS CHANNEL - HE SAID HE LOOKED FORWARD TO THE QF.

HE ALSO SAID HE WAS THERE TO WIN , NOT JUST TO GET TO THE QF.

HE ALSO SAID THAT IT MUST BE A STEP BY STEP COMPETITION; THAT THEREFORE WHILE HE WAS AWARE THE QF IS THERE AS SCHEDULED, HE HAD HIS DUTIES IN THE EARLIER ROUNDS.

MADE A LOT OF SENSE TO ME.

SO THERE YOU ARE , GANG - ROG IS ALL SET AS I & YOU PREDICTED - NOW LET HIM ROCK THE TENNIS WORLD - AND US.

SUPPORT HIM.
