2013 Halle ATP 250 (June 10-16)

At this point I think any win going into Wimbledon for Roger would help his confidence. I can't imagine how low his confidence will be if he actually loses to Gasquet (or as it looks now, Youzhny)!

Youzhny it is. The 14-0 H2H suggests Fed should be the favourite....

I'm so disappointed that Hewitt lost  :(. Hewitt/Fed would be more interesting final. Youzny has zero chance against Fed. well, nice run for Rusty.

Dude is like the Energizer Bunny, he just keeps going and going.  Gotta respect that kind of determination from a former #1.  Most fellas wouldn't be able to suffer the loses as well.
CONK da ball!!!

The Favorite?  Roger?  He's never the favorite!   :innocent:

I hope Roger can win tomorrow, but Youzhny has been playing some great tennis this week.  At any how...GO ROGERS!!!!

Youzhny will get his ass kicked by Roger only one winner in this final.

Youzhny playing very well, takes the first set 7:6. Fed is making too many UE. Good match so far. I'm watching it on TV, yey  :))

One more year with title for Fed.

And a promising display from the Colonel, hopefully he'll do well at Wimbledon.

Congrats to Fed for the first title of the year. Well done. It was a good match. Youzhny played well but it wasn't good enough. He tried to be very agressive, it worked for a while but then he started making too many UE and Fed punished him.

Halle for Roger is like Barcelona for Nadal. A gimme title.
Then we will fight in the shade.

At this point in Roger's career, there are no "Gimme" titles!

Eh. not sure what to say. Roger won but besides double bageling a no-body, he lost sets against two 30+ year olds who he shouldn't really have troubles with if he's in Big W form.


I'm not saying I'm not happy that he found a way to win and won a title, but I'm not part of the "a win is a win" club, he's playing for a purpose, not just to scrape as many wins as he can and if he's playing for a purpose then we can judge/analyze his form relative to that purpose. With his current form, I don't see him winning even a set against Djokovic, and maybe a set or two from Murray, and probably on even terms with Tsonga and Berdych. I won't even mention Nadal cuz he stands no chance against Nadal anywhere, anytime, let alone in current form.

Last year he lost to Haas in the same tournament and won Wimbledon. I don't think Haas is playing worse than he did then. And Youzhny reached the wimby QF last year. So I'm not very concerned about the set losses.

I'm also surprised Nadal is brought forward as the favourite. In my eyes he's the least likely of the big four to win Wimby. After playing so much he's bound to be tired. We remember last year: Impressive to say the least on (red) clay, but no impact whatsoever on grass. He could easily lose early again.

I don't think he was saying Nadal is the favorite. He's just saying against Roger, he'll be the favorite. And Nadal went out early last year because of the injury. This year, he skipped Halle to give himself a rest, so I expect him to be in full form with guns blazing at SW19  :)>>>>

Rafa is the FIRST to qualify for WTF this year! :D
