Some valuable armchair advice.

Or some pointless pleading. Whatever.

Roger, dude, if you're going to start losing every game you play, at least do it like a man instead of scurrying around the baseline like a terrified rabbit. Much better to dump the ball in the net on your own terms.

I take it you heard he was/is sick and has been since December.

Only got diagnosed late, was off for 10 days and started training 5 days before this tourney.

Anyway... he reckons he wouldn't have even been allowed to play the Ausi Open if it had been daignosed earlier... which would have ended his semi-final run.

I hope this is the reason, and he can start playing some proper tennis again now!

I read an article saying that he was much sicker than he had let on. And now he's saying that it had a bigger impact on his performance that he thought it would.

I have no idea how much weight to place on this though.

He has always been fairly candid. Plus if he gets better and doesn't start winning, he will look like a bit of a chop.

He doesn't normally make false excuses. But then again, he doesn't normally lose.

I guess only time will tell.
