Some funny stories:
- Marco and Roger grew up together and played in the junior level against each other. In a tournament at Old Boys, Roger and Marco had to play against each other. Marco won the first set and Roger began to cry. Marco told him in the change-over that it would get better and so it did. Marco lost the second set and then he began to cry. Roger now went and tried to console him. Although Roger went to win this match, Marco used to beat Roger in Juniors.

- Roger has the habit of banging his head into the pillow when he sleeps on his stomach.
- In his 20th birthday, he was under physical therapy in Biel as well as Michael Lammer was. Michi graduated from Tennis Etudes (rival club) and was preparing from his tests when he tore a ligament in his leg, therefore, he couldn’t drive. So Roger volunteered to offer himself as a taxi :D. “He waited for me at the train station, drove me to school and picked me up again and then we went together to physical therapy at sports school in Maggalingen” said Michael.
- This is a cute one. One of his classmates said he was sitting next to Roger in class and Roger was doodling in his notebook different ways to sign his name. Roger saw him looking and asked him “which do you think is best” but the guy answered “who cares? You’ll never need to use it.”. Roger tore the page, gave it to his classmate and said “Keep it, and when I’m famous, you can sell it”, but he didn’t keep it :-D
