Roger, nessuno ti potrà mai superare nel cuore dei tuoi tifosi, i numeri contano fino ad un certo punto della carriera, poi hanno poca importanza per quanto mi riguarda sei già al primo posto nell'olimpo dei GRANDI TENNISTI DI SEMPRE; ciò che ancora puoi

Good morning, Rogi!
Nice looking photo of you in a nice sunny place.
Hope training is going well for you... wish I could be there watching you practice…
I’m counting the days until you play again.
Tchau!
