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.

Just truly glad 2 have you back on the courts playing in New York at the Open again it would not have been the same without you there.

to see you in a daymatch as well.
I am happy to see that your wife is watching your practices again and it is lovely to see (one of) your daughter(s) courtside as well. One day the series 'Spirit of a Champion" might have to add another part called "Spirit of a Champion - The Father" ;-) ...
Wishing you all the very best for this tournament and hoping you will be able to play as long as you wish, not only these two weeks. There is no finish line.....

You seemed very relaxed and confident and to be honest I didn't expect anything else after that excellent match in the QF in Cinci. I am reassured by your comments about your back and maybe that was the biggest and best news of that interview. I was really worried this summer, but now I believe that we can all sit back and enjoy watching you play the way only you can play. I understand why you may get most of the night matches, but I hope for the viewers in Europe that we will get

Hello Roger,

The draw of a GS tournament is never easy and I don't think this one is an exception. But I don't think that is what matters here. What does is how you feel about your body and your game and as long as those feel good the draw doesn't mater that much. I watched the video of your interview on the US Open website and listening to your words and watching the message your eyes and your whole physique sends I think we can look ahead at two wonderful weeks of tennis.
