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."

THE ONLY CONSOLATION FOR ME NOT FEELING GOOD ABOUT ROGER DECIDING TO PLAY IN MADRID WOULD BE THAT :

ROGER WOULD SKIP PARIS !!

THAT WOULD GIVE HIM 2 WEEKS TO PREPARE FOR THE MASTERS CUP .

IF HE DOESN'T SKIP PARIS I WILL GO NUTS !!!

I am very happy to be able to see Roger next week but I am worried that may be, Roger should have taken a longer rest. Let's hope his body and soul are ready for Madrid and the rest of the season
