What will Rogi's schedule be the rest of this season, knowing what you know now after Wimbledon?
Can't see him skipping Tokyo. If he wants to continue improving on his journey back from the injuries, he needs:Tokyo is in 2 weeks, and he is in bad shape. He will skip it. Cincy, USO and then ending the season.
I agree. This is his last chance at playing in the Olympics and getting a singles gold medal. Plus, with his primary sponsorship with Uniqlo, a Japanese company, there is going to be a lot of pressure to play in Tokyo. In addition, all of the Olympic matches are best of three sets this time around and other top players are skipping, so this will be like an ATP 500 event. I'd be surprised if he decided not to play there.Can't see him skipping Tokyo. If he wants to continue improving on his journey back from the injuries, he needs:
- Better fitness
- Better movement
- More consistent shot making
All this doesn't come with more practice. He needs more match play.
It just doesn't make sense for him to stop here and pick up again before the USO. Would defeat the purpose of his comeback, he's probably the brightest player on tour and wouldn't have done all this to stop here.
No family allowed, either. The reason Serena isn't going, at least the reason that people are postulating as to why she isn't going. I wonder if Roger is willing to part from his family again for another week and a half in Tokyo.Olympics is going to have no spectators due to a covid resurgence. I expect Roger will pull out to avoid the risk.
