Rogi オタ ワールド! blog

ようこそ!Federer Expressことロジャー・フェデラーにハマったonmのblogです。
肩の力を抜こう
R.FEDERER l F.VOLANDRI 2-6, 4-6
Match Time:1h18mins

「危険な相手になり得る」・・・とこの前の記事に書きましたが、本当に現実にそうなってしまいました・・・「なり得る」どころかバリバリ危険な相手でした・・・

今日はホントにRogiにとってガッカリな試合だったと思う。もちろんRogiファンにとっても・・・結局最初から最後までRogiの方にいいトコがなく完敗と言っていい内容だった。

1stサービスの確率も低く(44%)、FHもBHもトラブルでエラーが目立ち、最後までそれを立て直すことが出来ずだった。UEの数は44を数え、18ゲームでこの数ですから、毎回1ゲームにつき2.4はUEで相手に献上していることになるわけで・・

ボランドリは最後まで闘う気持ちを強く持ち、最後まで集中を切らさず、トップスピンで我慢してラリーをし、Rogiがウィナーを狙ってきた時は走って走ってあきらめず守って、そしてそこからの一発逆襲がキメ、または固く守ってRogiが攻め急ぎエラーしたりと、まるで誰かさんを彷彿とさせるようなプレーでした・・・しかし、その誰かさんよりボランドリの方がメリハリがあり攻撃的なので今日のような一方的な結果になったように思う。

ところで最近の試合において、Rogiのセクシー度合いが下がってきているように感じるのだけど、皆さんはどう思われますか?Rogiのセクシーさがどこから来るのか、それは逆境やタフな状況にある時、Rogiの中の静かな、しかし熱い「炎」がメラメラと燃え上がることによって醸し出される「気」のように思う。
今年もRoger Slumに挑戦するわけでRogiはその為にトレーニングを計画しハードな練習をこなし、順調に来ていることから自分への期待も高く周りの期待も高く、それによってRogiは知らず知らず大きなプレッシャーを自分に与えてしまっているのかもしれない。。そのプレッシャーにRogiの中の「炎」がちょっと押されてしまっているのかも。。

もし、そうであるなら今日の敗戦が、Rogiの肩の力を抜かせてくれるものであって欲しい。そして一度しっかり地面を見て再チャレンジして欲しい。私もただRogiのチャレンジを揺るぎなく見守って行こうと思う。

今日はミルカにハグしてもらってぐっすり眠ってね!Rogi!

Day4 OOP -ローマ
Rogiの3rdRoundの試合は、センターコート第二試合に組まれました。
相手は地元ファンの声援を背にガスケに競り勝ったボランドリになりました。試合をちょっと見ていたのですが、ボランドリは観客の殆どを味方につけ、ガスケにとっては厳しいものだったと思います。明日もあんなカンジになると思って覚悟しなければならないでしょうね。現地のRogiファンの皆様がむばってRogiの応援たのみます!

さて、二人のH2HはRogiの1-0。まだ一度しか戦っていません。2003年ここローマのQFで対戦してフルセットで勝っています。ボランドリはクレーコートが得意で動きもいいし、チラリとその2003年の試合のハイライトを見たことがありますが、Rogiはボランドリの深いFHのトップスピンとパワフルなショットに少し苦しめられていた感がありました。
Rogiは回転のかかった飛んでこないボールを待ちきれずミスしてしまうことが特にクレーでよく見るように思うし、確かボランドリは昨年のデ杯のプレー・オフでナダルから1stセットを奪ったし、観客のバックアップがあるボランドリは危険な相手になり得ると思います。
とにかく、まずケガのないよういい準備をしてもらって、辛抱強く気持ちを強く持っていいプレーを見せてもらたいっす!


ところで、ローマ現地時間9日(水)18時キックオフのローマ対インテル(コッパ・イタリア決勝第1戦)の前日、Rogi、ラファ、ジョコがインテルの選手と会いお互いの健闘を誓いあったのだそうな。(残念ながら、この第1戦はホームのローマが勝った)テニス選手はみなサッカーが好きだから、みんな少年のようなうれしそうな表情をしていますね。

また、9日オフだったRogiはイタリアの将来有望な子供達を前にテニスレッスンを行なったのだそうな。良い休息になったみたいですね。

Goodスタート -ローマ
R.FEDERER def N.ALMAGRO 6-3, 6-4
Match Time:1h14mins

初戦だし相手アルマグロだし去年途中から追い上げ喰らったし、で気合を入れて応援態勢に入ったら、Rogiもそうだったらしく、結構最初から集中の度合いも高く試合に入ってきました。

全体的に見ても1stサービスの確率は今までより高かったし(62%)、ありゃ〜というような凡ミスも少なく、安定していたように思います。アルマグロのエラーに助けられたところもありましたが、Rogiは必要なところで必要なプレーが出来ていました。
クレーにおいて1ブレイク・アップは逆にプレッシャーがかかりとても危険で、アルマグロも第二セットでダブルブレイクダウンとなるBP2つをナイスFHとサービスでしのいでキープし、ブレイクバックを狙ってファイト、プッシュしてきましたが、それを押しのけ勝利しました。

今後はもっとタフな状況、プレッシャーがかかる場面で今日のようないいプレーが出来るかがキーでしょうね。その為にとにかくハードコートのようにサクサクとはポイントが取れないサービスゲーム慣れて、その中からポイントを勝ち取り自信をつけていってもらいたいっす。

実を言うと、これは私にとっても精神鍛錬で、ちょっとRogiのサービスゲームで1stポイントを取られたり0-30になったりすると、トイレに駆け込んだり、急に片付けを始めたり、ニャンコに抱きついたりと挙動不審になるのですが、今回からはしっかり腹を据えて気持ちだけでも一緒にRogiと闘おうと決めました。がんばるぞ!

さて、次の相手はボランドリでしょうか、やはりガスケでしょうか。。Day3の水曜日、Rogiの試合はなし。いい休息といい調整をしてもらいたいっす。

OOP Day2 -ローマ
Rogiの初戦はセンターコート第二試合に組まれました。第一試合開始が午後1時ですので、Rogiの試合が始まるのは日本時間の22時あたりか。第一試合のサフィンの試合は初日に組まれていましたが、雨で2日目になったそうです。お天気がちと心配。。

相手はやはりアルマグロ。ヘンマンをストレート・セットで下しやってきました。H2HはRogiの3-0ですが、昨年ここローマのQFで対戦し第二セットはServing for Matchでブレイクバック、タイブレークに持ち込まれこれを取られファイナルセットは7-5というタフな勝利でしたから、まったく油断なりません。初戦からタフな試合になりそうですね。

初日の月曜日Rogiはスタンくんと組んで、これまたモヤ兄さんと組んだナダルとダブルスをプレーしました。途中ちょっと見過ごしたところもあったのですが、Rogiは全体的にいいプレーをしてたという印象でした。終盤ではすごいアングル・ロー・ボレー(ショット?)で観客がどよめき拍手喝采がありましたし、印象ではリターンもモンテカルロの時よりクレーのタイミングに合ってきてるように思いました。しかしリターンと1stサーブの確率はとても重要なポイントでしょうね、特にセットの後半。

しかし、試合で動いてみて、心配されたヒップ問題は大丈夫みたいですね。ダブルスの途中で右のお尻辺りを気にするそぶりがあったのですが、試合後にRogi本人がイタリアのラジオで、その問題についてダブルスの試合はテストでもあったけれど何も問題なかったと言っていたそうです。ちょっと一安心ですね。
しかしとにかくとにかく、本当にケガにだけはくれぐれも注意して、しっかりといい準備をしていいスタートをきってもらいたいっす!

ところで、マイアミで赤のポロシャツ姿をを久々に見たときもオッハートと思いましたが、このRogiの久々のブルーのクルーネック・シャツ姿もいいですねポッ

フェデラーvsナダル今度はダブルスで勝負
俄フェレリスタさんとasukamuraさんのコメントを読んで「ダブルス出るんだ〜。いつラファたちと当るんだろう・・」とのんきに考えていたら、今日初戦がそうだったんですね。それも今から・・

おっと、もう入場したみたい・・モヤ&ナダルのチームからのサービスだ。楽しそうだなぁ。。しかし見たい!!

<追記>
ここでみれるゾ!(紙芝居だけど)(そうでもないや、けっこうきれい)

<21:53追記>
すごい観客の多さだ・・・さすがっ!

ドロー出ました - ローマ
鉛筆INTERNAZIONALI BNL D'ITALIA MAIN DRAW SINGLES

さすがにマスターズ・シリーズですね。トップハーフ、Rogiのセクションは早いラウンドからタフな相手がゴロゴロ・・・初戦がアルマグロ、3Rはガスケ、QFはベルディヒ or リュビ、SFはロディック or フェレール or ブレーク orゴン。早いラウンドからタフな試合になりそうですね。。

ボトム・ハーフのシードはロブレド、マレー、フェレーロ、ダビデンコ、ジョコ、ハース、ユーズニー、ナダル。決してイージーなドローじゃないと思うけど、やっぱし決勝に来るのはナダルでしょうってカンジですな。。

さて、昨日(?)サッカーのアンリ選手がRogiの練習を見にきてたみたいですね。

決勝戦後会見スクリプト -ローマ
QF約2時間半、SF約2時間40分、Final約5時間の試合を3日連続でプレーしても、試合後身体的になにも問題を持っていないということはうれしいですね。
とはいうものの、火曜からまた連続6試合に挑むのはやはり無謀ということでハンブルグはキャンセルしたのだと思います。
結果についてはとても残念だと言っていますが、全仏に向けて別の明るい手ごたえを掴んだようです。この悔しい敗戦はRogiに更なるガッツと勝利に対するハングリー精神を与えるものとなったと思います。

ROME, ITALY


May 14, 2006

R. NADAL/R. Federer
6-7, 7-6, 6-4, 2-6, 7-6


ROGER FEDERER



THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. Can you talk about your emotions after that match and the experience.

ROGER FEDERER: Well, I mean, it was very close, no, I mean, from start til the finish. The result obviously reflects that, too.

Well, I guess it's a big pity for me because I came back well and in the end I should have won. He caught me right on the finish line, so that was a pity in a way.

But, you know, that's all I could do, fight hard and try and play as well as I could. It was a pity in the end.

Q. Did your performance today, Roger, make you think that he's more beatable than you originally thought?

ROGER FEDERER: Well, I mean, obviously, I would have liked to win, but I already knew after Monaco I was extremely close. I think this is another step closer because I got even closer to the win today than back then.

So, no, I'm on the right track. I think, again, you know, I improved a few things again for this match. So, yeah, it was good to play him already three times this year. Definitely helps me.

Q. He thought your backhand was working much better here than Monte-Carlo.

ROGER FEDERER: I played differently, too, which made it obviously a different match. I was working with my forehand way more in Monaco. Obviously, when he got to my backhand, he thought that was a safe option. Today I did more with my backhand, too, yeah.

Q. When you say you're on the "right track," would you have gone to the net so often against him before?

ROGER FEDERER: I mean, I hardly serve and volleyed.

Q. No, you didn't serve and volley.

ROGER FEDERER: I mean, that's basically the way I played him all the time now, really trying to come to the net not as much as I could, but, you know, play aggressive because, like I said, he definitely gives me the opportunity to do that.

So for me just to hit it and move backwards again, that's not the way I learned the game, you know. My way of thinking is, you know, come to the net and finish it at the net. That's what I'm doing pretty well at the moment, and that's what makes me win the matches.

So worked for most of the time today, he hardly passed me today, which was a good feeling. So I have to keep that up.

Q. How much of your thoughts are already at the French, and how much do you think about keeping the Grand Slam alive?

ROGER FEDERER: Well, especially now in the clay court season, you know, it's all around me basically. That's been the case since I got -- played and hit my first ball on clay. So it's good to think about the French and be excited about it.

Q. On your two matchpoints you missed forehands. Did you rush them, do you think?

ROGER FEDERER: Well, I mean, I think the second one was definitely rushed. I tried to hit a winner, why not, you know. I already had one matchpoint so I thought, I mean, might as well go for it a little bit, you know. I didn't try to totally hit a winner, but tried to play aggressive and I was a little late on it.

The first one I was more disappointed about because I was in a good position, and I didn't want to go for the outright winner at all. I just tried to play solid and with a lot of spin to his backhand and long. I just couldn't get quite over it in time. So that was a pity.

I think that's, I guess, the first matchpoint that cost me the match.

Q. Can you think of another match where you had to work as hard? You were out there for five hours. Did you prove something to yourself by getting through that barrier? You were out there for a long time tonight.

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I mean, I don't remember playing for so long ever, but I had a long set at the French Open, you know, in the beginning against another Swiss. I don't know how long that took. I don't know how long the match took with Safin at the Australian Open.

But, yeah, I mean, it's good for me also, you know, to play these tough matches and really see, you know, if I'm fit or not. I think, you know, we played almost four hours in Monaco. Now we played more than five. I never had a problem, which is nice, you know, so that makes me confident looking ahead because that's exactly how I want to feel at the French Open, too, you know, being able to back up tough matches. This one was even more tough, I thought, with the two matches, you know, coming into the finals. He didn't have to work that hard. So I think that is, on the physical standpoint, a very good effort from my side.

Q. In the sixth game of the third set, you said I assume to Tony Roche, "Is that all right, Tony?" Do you remember that?

ROGER FEDERER: That wasn't for Tony Roche. That was for Tony Nadal.

Q. Tony Nadal?

ROGER FEDERER: He was coaching a little bit too much again today. Yeah, I caught him in the act, so...

Q. Did that upset you a little bit?

ROGER FEDERER: Well, not the first time. I told him many times already, through the entire match in Monaco already. But it seems like they don't keep a close enough eye on him.

Q. (Through translation.) Do you go to Hamburg?

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I mean, that's the plan. Obviously, you know, I have to see how I feel and everything tomorrow because that's an important wake-up (smiling). I'll know more tomorrow morning, I guess.

Q. And you will play there against Rafa before Roland Garros for the fourth time?

ROGER FEDERER: Oh, I'm not sure if our thoughts are right there right now.

Q. Do you need it, a fourth match, before Roland Garros?

ROGER FEDERER: We can practice together at the French Open - every day if he wants (smiling).

ナルバンディアン戦後の会見(二つ目のスクリプト)でRogiは彼のキャリア初めに持ったクレーにおいての悔しい初戦敗戦(接戦での敗北)後に、クレーにおいて彼の為の突破口が突然全仏で来た、と言っています。プロ転向後クレートーナメント11大会連続初戦負けが続いた後、2000年の全仏で4thRoundまで勝ち上がることが出来たのです。私は同じような(もちろん4thRoundではなく128の頂点に立つ)ことが起こることを願っています。
2006 INTERNAZIONALI D'ITALIA
ROME, ITALY


May 12, 2006

R. FEDERER/N. Almagro
6-3, 6-7, 7-5


ROGER FEDERER



THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. Well, he looks like the sort of player who could be a challenger at Roland Garros maybe, do you think?

ROGER FEDERER: Well, for upsets, for sure. For the title, that's still far-fetched I think, you know, with Rafael around and all this stuff.

But I said yesterday that he's going to be one of those guys that you've got to watch out for in the draw. He can definitely upset. He proved that definitely today.

Q. How do you rate your performance?

ROGER FEDERER: Well, it was pretty good, you know. I thought it was pretty consistent except the one matchpoint, obviously, you know. That made life a little bit more difficult for me today.

But other than that, I thought I created quite a lot of opportunities for myself and nothing in the game really broke down, and that's important.

It was a tricky match, you know. He was playing well, very far behind the baseline, and that's always an adjustment to make especially after playing Stepanek.

Q. Would you call that an adventure, an escape, a surprise? How would you term that?

ROGER FEDERER: Well, I don't know. I wouldn't call it an "escape" because I was up all the time, you know. I served for the match and then I was always up in the third set, too. I had, you know -- I don't think he had a breakpoint in the third, I think.

But I had many opportunities, so I always felt - and that was the case - I was always ahead. I think it was just an overall very tough match, you know, which almost went down to the wire with a tiebreaker, but I snuck out before that so...

Q. What were his strengths, do you think?

ROGER FEDERER: Well, you just feel like he's very comfortable on clay. I mean, there's no other surface you'd get away by playing so far back in the court, you know, than clay. That obviously is a big help for him, the surface.

Then he obviously has a good forehand, pretty consistent backhand I would say. I knew he had a big game, you know. I played him at the French Open last year, and he proved that again today. He got very close.

Q. With the sun today, it seemed like the court was a bit slippery.

ROGER FEDERER: Well, I mean, obviously, when it's slippery, it's not easy, huh? I mean, that's no doubt. But you got to play around that, you know, so you don't get caught in a position where the other guy can just hit for a winner and you got to guess sides. Then you always look like an idiot.

But, yeah, it was getting a little slippery there. I thought it was good they put water on the court, you know. Maybe it slows down conditions a bit.

But, no, with the sun, this court, it's never a problem. Yeah, it was a little slippery for a while there.

Q. Once you lost the matchpoint, made double-fault on the second serve, then you find yourself in the third. Did you think about last year, the two defeats out of four of yours came after you had matchpoint? Or you don't think at all...
ROGER FEDERER: (Smiling).

Q. No, please, please.

ROGER FEDERER: No, of course, of course (smiling).

Q. Also, once you were close to the tiebreaker, you thought, "Okay, I had five opportunities, five matchpoints, if I get to the tiebreaker, would be more difficult for me," or not?

ROGER FEDERER: No, I mean, I definitely think about all these things, too, you know, what happened after having matchpoint, being broken and all this, you know, because then you're at even terms again. Maybe you're still up a set, but the momentum's, you know, shifted. You know that now the chance of losing the breaker may be slightly bigger than still five minutes ago, and you start thinking of what happened last year. I remember losing a few ones with matchpoints. I hoped that the same is not gonna happen.

But all I can do is give myself opportunities and if it happens, I don't know. The worst thing -- the best thing you can say is, "At least I had matchpoint."

But, yeah, I mean, it was very close in the end, and I was happy to come out before the tiebreaker, that's for sure.

Q. Obviously, you're going to say at this time you'd prefer to win every match as easy as possible, but is a test like that good for you with what's coming up?

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I mean, I think the more time on clay, the better. Of course, you know, as long as I keep on winning the matches, that's always good.

I think with how Monaco and this has been going, you know, I mean, I'm in top form, and that's excellent news for me. And then a match like this, you know, maybe, like you say, it is maybe good for me.

But I always like to win those the most, you know, the ones that are close like this.

Q. Before Monte-Carlo you said that since it was your first tournament on clay this year you would have been happy just to get to the quarters more or less. Before coming here, what was the goal?

ROGER FEDERER: Was also the same, about quarters, you know.

Q. No.

ROGER FEDERER: Sorry, huh, to disappoint you (smiling).

Q. I don't trust you.

ROGER FEDERER: No, I mean, you underestimate the toughness of the Masters Series because they are very difficult, you know. You play seeds already in the third round. You play every day, especially if you start on Tuesday.

I mean, it's really hard, you know, especially on the body. I haven't been playing now again for two weeks. Guys are coming in with maybe confidence and all this stuff. Now everybody's playing well.

So, no, my goal is reasonable and it's the quarterfinal. Now that I've made it that far, you know, it's nice, but it doesn't get any easier with Nalbandian and then the five-setter maybe in the finals.

So, I mean, I have to go match at a time. But the initial goal was a quarterfinal.

Q. (Through translation.) Will you play more aggressive tomorrow or like today?

ROGER FEDERER: Well, I mean, I usually play -- I adapt very much to the opponent. My game is usually always pretty much aggressive and not really waiting for the other guys to mistake -- to make the mistake.

I think it will be the same tomorrow. It will be aggressive style, and I think that's what's going to make me win the match tomorrow if I really want to come through as a winner.

残念でしたが、光明あり -ローマ
R.FEDERER lost R.NADAL 7-6(0), 6-7(5), 4-6, 6-2, 6-7(5)
Match Time:5:05

この試合について、結果はとても残念でしたが、私が予想していたよりかなりRogiはいい試合をしてくれました。だからRogiに拍手を送りたい!拍手

悔しい点は、リードしてるのに逃げ切れないということかな。第二、第五セットのタイブレーク、第五セットもワンブレークアップしてた。チャンピオンシップポイントも二つあった。そっからのナダルが見事だというのと、やはり残念なのはそこでRogiにエラーが出ちゃうってところですよね。。。Rogiって敏感だから、ヒシヒシと相手のプレッシャーを感じて自分の中で膨張させてるのかも・・

でも、今までなかなかリズムが作れず、けっこう押されっぱなしだったナダルと、十分彼が一番得意とするクレーでも競い合うことが出来る、勝つチャンスはあるということが分かっただけでも大きな収穫ですよ。少しずつRogiは手ごたえと自信をつけてきているから、きっとRogiはこの敗戦からまた何かを得て次に繋げてくれる、そう思います。信じて待ちましょう!

Rogi、あまり時間ないけど、しっかり体を休めてね!今夜はリラックスしてチームのみんなといい夕食をとってね!よつばのクローバーよつばのクローバー
