    People here are projecting their feelings on to the organizers.

    Federer withdraws from RG

    Stop it you’re making too much sense.

    Federer withdraws from RG

    He didn’t have any expectations other than he wasn’t winning it.

    Should Feddy be penalized?

    Penalized in what way? Is there some rule at the grand slams that you must have a verifiable injury in order to withdraw from a tournament?

    Federer withdraws from RG

    What special treatment did Fed get?

    Federer withdraws from RG

    Fed said he knew he wasn’t going to win RG. He never said he was only going to play 3 matches and then withdraw.

    Federer withdraws from RG

    He’s almost 40 years old. In 23 years on tour this is the first time he’s withdrawn from a grand slam without having a specific injury. In previous generations there were players who completely skipped clay or grass all together. And some players who chose not to fly down to Australia to play AO.

    Federer withdraws from RG

    Except Fed didn’t withdraw because he thought he would lose his next match. And who determines if someone is legitimately injured? Fed could have said his knee was bothering him. He chose to be honest. I’m willing to give players near the end of their careers some slack (and I’ll say the same...

    Federer withdraws from RG

    So Koepfer would feel better if Fed played R4 and made sure he lost in straights?

    Federer withdraws from RG

    They’re mad because they don’t get their ‘dream’ match where Djokovic gets to beat him.

    Federer withdraws from RG

    That’s assuming every time Nadal had an injury he really was injured. There were a few times where I think it was questionable how injured he really was.

    Federer withdraws from RG

    OK if Fed knew during the match he was going to withdraw what was the point of winning the match? I guess because he’s never retired during a match before and thinks once he steps out on court he has an obligation to finish the match? Fed’s opponent could have won that match. Fed wasn’t tanking...

    Or if he won that match and then withdrew.

    Federer withdraws from RG

    Fed has no obligation to give people a ‘dream’ match. He came to RG because there’s nowhere else to get 5 set match practice. Quiet honestly I’d rather have him be honest and take the grief for it than lie about an injury.

    Federer withdraws from RG

    That’s making an assumption that Fed knew during the match last night he was going to withdraw. We don’t know that. It’s possible he felt worse than he thought he would the next day and decided to be extra careful so he doesn’t wreck the rest of his season. I get why some might be upset. Both...

    Who is showing Roger’s match tomorrow? He plays at 2pm CST. My NBC guide says they will be showing women’s golf. And Tennis Channel guide has their coverage ending at 2pm CST.

    He needs match play for Wimbledon. The US Open has been such a disappointment the past decade or so I don’t enjoy it anymore. I don’t care if he plays it or not.

    Federer News

    Listening to Roger’s interview just now with the Tennis Channel. He didn’t mention anything about his summer/fall schedule besides the Olympics. Indian Wells moved to October. Maybe he’ll play that. But I actually would be surprised if he plays the US Open. His chances of winning that are...

    Will wimbledon ever have night sessions?

    No because dew forms on the grass and it would be slippery.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if he loses 1st round at RG. He just hasn’t played enough this year. He’s rusty plus probably doesn’t have much mental strength/confidence right now.

    Well Roger looked good for patches of the match but his opponent raised his level in the middle of the 3rd set and that was that. Sucks because Roger needs match practice.

    Sampras never created such controversy and division among tennis fans

    So you don’t have a source it’s just your personal opinion. OK.

    Is he saying he’s not ready to come back yet? At some point you gotta play matches. I hope he’s feeling ok.

    Yeah and I don’t think what Nadal or Djokovic do will factor into his decision. Once matches become a grind and being on tour isn’t fun any more he’ll call it quits.

    Unfortunately I think this is Roger’s last year on tour. He‘s going to be 40 years old. I don’t think he has the stamina to go the distance any more. He seemed to run out of gas at the end of this match. Plus it’s no fun losing to people you should beat.

    I don’t like when he cuts his hair short but leaves to the top long(ish). He needs to admit he has a receding hairline and just embrace it.

    IW Postponed /Cancelled

    I’ve attended IW when daytime temps were close to 100F and it‘s nearly impossible to sit in the stadium unless you’re in the shade. And that’s March sun not August. If they could find a spot in the calendar later in the year I think that would work but only if both IW and Miami are postponed. I...
