Basel

20.10.2008 | Tennis

Roger will play his first round match at the Swiss Indoors against Bobby Reynolds (ATP 85). Reynolds was the last player to make it directly into the main draw. After two perfect years in Basel, Roger is aiming for a third consecutive home-title. He has not met the American Reynolds before.

 

In the second round last year's finalist, Jarkko Nieminen (FIN/ATP 33), or Argentina's Eduardo Schwank (ATP 56) are possible opponents. Furthermore, Tomas Berdych (CZE/7; possible opponent in the quarter finals), James Blake (USA/4) and Mardy Fish (USA/8) are in Roger's half of the draw.

I noticed today at some point near the end of the 2nd set that at what point Roger waved his racket quickly towards the ground, it looked as if he was going to smash his racket !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Whatever happened to his trademark "coolness under pressure"

I'm afraid Roger today played "well enough to win"

He didn't win convincingly and didn't play the game we all know Roger is known for.

This makes me very worried.

He still struggles with break point conversion and mentally he is still NOT THERE.

Congratulations!!!!!!!! ROGER!
That was a tough win but glorious. Reynolds was playing his head out and lost finally. He even broke the net . Shame on him. He should
be punished right away but not. And shame on
the umpire,too.

Hi! I see that the cows in your profile look different as well. Are they the same Daisy-Mae and Connie-the-cow in disguise or new recruits?

Thanks for providing the latest information about the preparation currently going on for our next target: Paris.

I can't wait for our lovely cows to sneak into Paris incognito. What a feat!

But I see (on your profile) that Rudol

Congratulations on your win today, Roger. You made it more difficult than it should have been, but Reynolds is a scrapper with some talent. At least you got some good match practice!!

Please make it easier on yourself going forward, by converting break
