At this point in Rogers's career - any win is a good one. It doesn't matter who he "didn't" play. When Nadal came back this year in those small tournaments and won them, he was getting the needed "practice" on the clay. Roger was getting his needed practice on the grass. But because Roger had not won a title of anything this year, this title can only be good for his confidence. As was said earlier - Haas has been playing great this year and Youzhny was playing great in this tournament, so it's not like Roger didn't play anyone! Coming from clay to grass, anyone can lose early...look at Ferrer today!
