Roger withdraws from Stockholm

01.10.2008 | Tennis

Roger announced today that he will not be participating in the Stockholm Open which starts next Monday.

 

"2008 has been a tough year for me as I was always playing catch up after being diagnosed with mononucleosis at the beginning of the year. I feel fortunate to be healthy again, but I want to remain at the top of the game for many more years to come and go after the #1 ranking again. In order to do that, I need to get a proper rest and get strong again so that I am 100% fit for the remainder of the year or next year. At this point, I am not sure when I will be ready to play again, but I hope to be back at some point before the end of the year. I apologize to the tennis fans in Sweden as I was looking forward to playing in Stockholm again. The country has produced so many incredible tennis players and the tournament has such a great history.  I hope to be able to come back at some point in the future."

Who are we to tell Roger what WE think he should do? The guy is his own man and if he wants to play in Madrid well, let him play in peace and just tell him we are with him all the way. Only he knows how his body is feeling and if he is going to play he mu

roger,

granted that I do want to see you play again I really have misgivings about your return now, I mean, why in Madrid where they are planning of celebrating Nadal's new position as world"s no.1? It's like, you know, rubbing salt to a sore wound. Bu

Madrid will surely be ONE TOUGH TOURNAMENT for Roger , in the mix you have :

1- Rafa Nadal : the newly crowned NO.1 looking to impress the hell out of his home crowd (oh and his new girlfriend as well )

2- David Nalbandian : THE MOST dangerous playe
