Rome: better than 2006?

07.05.2007 | Tennis

Roger will play the ‚Internazionali d’Italia’ in Rome this week. He will certainly try to improve last year’s mark when he lost to Rafael Nadal in the final – after having had two match balls. He has never been able to win the tournament this far.


Roger has a bye for the first round and will later either face Spain’s Nicolas Almagro (ATP 39) or his British friend Tim Henman (ATP 50). Roger has won all three duels with Almagro who has already won a title on clay (Valencia) this year and leads the head-to-head against Henman 7-6. Roger has won the last 6 matches against Henman.


Our number one could meet France’s Richard Gasquet (ATP 15) who just made the final in Estoril. The quarter finals could mean matches against Tomas Berdych (ATP 12) or Ivan Ljubicic (ATP 8).

I watched the doubles today: again, RAFA.
Roger: what has been happening with your first serve? Is it anything wrong with you?

My best wishes.

Dear Roger,

good luck for the start of the tournament.

Almagro is an excellent player on clay and even more important it was for you to get a bit matchpraxis in todays doubles match with your friend Stan.

Hopefully everything will work well. Go

Hey, Roger!

So, you're gonna play against Almagro... I saw a little of his game. He doesn't play that well, but he's dangerous, let's say like this. Well, I know that if you give your best, you can win this tournament, which means a lot to you. By the
