Stealing Nadal's number 1 spot to thank him for his nice congratulating sms?

I think winning RG would take too much out of him...probably wipe out the rest of the season.

No, Roger mustn't.  He must do what he did last year and say bye to the dirt at his age.

Slams are the most important part of the game.  And securing records is more important than entering a slam he has almost no hope of winning, and which will then knacker his body out and cost him any hope of Wimbledon.  HE doesn't need the dirt titles.  Esp at this stage in his career.  I know you think he's got a great chance on clay and that he will blow everyone away - but he won't. He's lost at least a step from his dominating years 04-07, and will be made to rally over and over.  He will lose.  That's the reality, and it's why he ducked out last year.  Because he knows it, as well.

Fantastic! Let's just hope he does not lose before the semis - that would be rather awkward.

Both i guess

Krajicek said: 'it's logical that Roger wants to make the best of his current form'
Typical Krajicek Grr 
It's the extra points he wants, not that meaningless title.

I actually could see that scenario.

It would maybe wipe them both out.

That would be Fed’s version of Nole’s win of Nadal there.

I can see your thinking clearly now, it would be a very satisfying moment indeed!

Me only 6...

Still...you’ve got to make an effort and dig some tickets for that SF day.

Kraj is right, Fed is playing great and feeling even better, you can’t miss that!

Not to mention the roaring drive and desire that got him decide to play iRotterdam!

If Fed plays in RG, I’ll seriously consider going there for the final! diva

Clearly Roger reads my insightful posts on here. It’s probably no exaggeration to suggest he is heavily influenced by my wise analysis.

On second thoughts i decided to go to Rotterdam, i got myself tickets for the quarters. This must be his goodbye to the dutch fans, regardless how many years he'll be playing.

Besides: if i did the maths right, he'll become #1 if he wins the quarter and i'll be there. Nice!

Indeed, the older i get, the more that's on my mind.

I just told a colleague he can join me that night. Young fellow, huuuuuuge Federer fan, but somehow he accepted the fact he was never going to see him live. He started to shake a little when i told him he will get to see the goat Big Grin

Somewhere, our old friend along with Dr. Sincere, Impartial Lion, mediator, mediator555 &c &c &c are hiding under their blankets (unless, of course, they are all the same person.....)

I even yelled out : noleisthebest! at one stage and Fed turned around and looked at me Laugh

Those were the days...

You lucky man!
How was it?

Fantastic day - saw Henman v. Federer, and Ivanisevic v. Safin all players I really liked and they were two really tight 4-setters.  We had a very entertaining mixed doubles match in the evening if I remember rightly (although my Wimbledon memories tend to merge as I went a lot in the 1990's and a lot more recently).  I remember a very strong sense that Federer was really quite something but somehow Henman got by him.  I don't think Fed gave of his best, I think he has said that he was a bit discombobulated by the fall-out from his historic win the round before.  The things that stood out more than anything else to me was how good Henman was at the net, such amazing hands, and also the difference between the first and second matches was extraordinary - Henman/Federer had so much more touch than the other two and looked so much more at home.  The second match was so much more of a power battle.  I wish I could remember more.

I reckon if he won Rotterdam so Nadal couldn’t depose him in Mexico, he’d skip Dubai to prepare for Indian Wells.

I expect that if he reaches #1 in Rotterdam, he will skip Dubai - even if that meant that Rafa would reclaim #1 spot in Acapulco. The big thing is to reach #1 at his age, worrying about a few weeks here or there of keeping it thereafter is irrelevant.

Hopefully Fed will get to play on Monday in Rotterdam, that way he could make SF by playing Mo-We-Fr.  He could then pull out of SF citing fatigue Winking

Rotterdam has a pretty good field, so Fed might have to play one, or maybe even two, decent players to reach SF.  Normally I would expect him to beat those kinds of players (e.g., maybe Tsonga, Berdych or Rublev) quite easily, but I will be nervous next week.

Some big names in the tournament.

Dimi, Zverev, Goffin, Stan, Berdych, Pouille and Tsonga. Like you say SB, could be a hard week ahead.

Ok, to become #1 again Federer needs to beat a qualifier, then Kholi / Khachanov then probably Stan.

And that would be it.

Not easy.

Well if he can’t beat those three, he doesn’t  deserve to be number one.

Of course he will! Even if he has to wheel out Mirka “Stan The Crybaby” act. Laugh

Plus he is going to be so excited and nervous, I can’t wait to see all that.

This tournament is such an awesome surprise treat. cake redwine

Yeah, Rds 2&3 could provide some real opposition.  I did not realize how strong the field was in Rotterdam.  Still, a #1 player in the world should beat a qualifier and either Kholi/Khachanov.  Stan at his best could be difficult, but he is unlikely to be anywhere near that.

Fingers crossed.  I will be nervous though.  It feels the #1 is so close, yet if he does not make it, the door could close really fast.

Stan in the quarters, that's great! i couldn't have picked a better player with something like that on the line.
He'll need to work for it, that's for sure

In today’s order of play, qf matches...some decent players!
Klizan...even Tsitsipas.

Rublev-Puille is def the match of the first round.

And that other Canadian Felix AA wunderkind is in the maind draw too as a WC...keen to see how he plays now.

The only one missing is Shapo Sad
