Roger right on track

27.03.2007 | Tennis

Roger will get a chance to revenge his defeat by Guillermo Canas in Indian Wells after setting up a fourth round meeting with the Argentinean at the Sony Ericsson Open, who busted his 41-match win streak two weeks ago at Indian Wells.

 

Roger struggled for a time not only with heavy-hitting Nicolas Almagro (ESP/29) but also with chair umpire Mohammad Lahyani and a few lines people with whom he had issues, but he was never in serious trouble in a 7-5, 6-3 win. He clearly found his rhythm at the start of the second set, breaking Almagro three times in a row.

 

Asked if he was ready for Roger, Canas replied: "Yeah, I am ready. Yes, I'm ready. I'm ready to enjoy it again, to be in the center court against the No. 1 in the world," he said confidently. Roger doesn't often have more unforced errors (26) than winners (24), but he did against Almagro, and his lack of consistency did annoy him. "If I look at the whole match, I think it was a very good one and I can build on that for the next match."

 

The next one is certainly one of the exciting matches a great number of fans have been hoping for!

Dear Mr. Federer,
Throughout the years I have watched you in many tennis matches and tournaments. I am always happier when you win, but regardless of the outcome, I am always there when you play again.

Roger, having just watched your loss to Canas, I wonder if your off-court activities and your quest for winning the French are detracting from your focus? It also appeared you were tired, and thus missed a lot of makable shots? Hang in there; things are

OK,
I've calmed down now.
Your career right now is like driving down a long road, and you just hit a big pothole and had a big belch, but you will continue down that tennis road because you are on a path to glory.
It's like riding a horse, sometimes y

Dear Roger,
Just another loss, so what? At the end of the year you'll add a couple more and that's it. This time you gave a real battle, don't be ashamed for it.
Now rest and prepare for Monte-Carlo, Rome, Roland Garros, Wimbledon, US Open, etc, etc. Pa

Roger!
I'm so sorry to hear about the loss. I hope and pray everything is ok with you. All I can think of right now is that Canas has studied your game very closely. I wish you the very best dear Roger.
You Fan,
Angie

To our Sweetheart,

It's Ok, the rude, obnoxious, boisterous crowd of Miami killed you. You were still superb especially in the 2nd set, the 3rd was almost yours. It looks to me that your true nemesis are grinders that would almost kill themselves to
