Out against Djokovic

08.06.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger suffered a 4-6, 5-7, 3-6 loss against Novak Djokovic in the semi-final of the French Open today.

"I was actually feeling particularly well in the second set, and that one hurts the most to lose," Roger said. "In the third, I don't know, I just wasn't able to put a good game together anymore. You're down two sets to nothing against Novak and it's not the same match anymore. He goes for broke and has no fear and that's about it."

Roger had a good start by breaking Djokovic early in the first set but receiving the re-break in return. Djokovic secured the first set with yet another break. In the second, Roger broke Djokovic again for a 3-0 lead but the world no. 1 took 13 of the next 18 games, constantly putting Roger under pressure. In the third set, Djokovic piled up four breaks to eventually seal his victory after 2:05 hours.

*Yukimi* Sampras won seven Wimbledons, so it would be great to see our Roger match that. Of course, Roger has a record six World Tour titles and I think anyone will be hard pressed to beat that. The fact is he has beaten pretty near every record and will continue to do so. We shouldn't make comparisons. Like Carmeli says, his tennis is a thing of beauty, that's why we love him. Go Roger,xxxxxxx

Oh, RF fans...life happens! Nadal has 11 GS, who cares? No one can predict the future. Borg made it to 11too [not sure], that's it no more, so? Does that make BB less of the great player he was? I just love to watch Roger play, even when he loses. He's just magnificent! I can't take my eyes off his dance, it's a thing of beautiful physical & mental strength. I'm bored with ND & RN. Their style of play is great for them, but I'm not too sure is good for Tennis overall. It is what is. Go Rog!

Oh by the way - why are we comparing Rog to Nadal?

For cry sakes, he is beneath Roger so there's no comparison please.

Rog is up there and Nadal is down here.

Even if he has 10RGs, he has no right to be mentioned in the same breath as Roger.

Roger's tennis in up there in the blue sky and Nadal's is firmly eartbound.Before anyone disagrees with me, I will tell you: Nadal will be the first to agree with me.

He knows that no matter how he tries, he'll win but it won't fly.

Dear *1fed1*

Thank you. I 'm happy to be wrong and I'm glad for Rog - so he's broken Borg's total?

So Rog holds the record now(I hope)? or does Sampras have a say? Does anyone have 7? God my mind's going...

I'm honestly confused here - help anyone?

Hello Roger,
really sad that you've lost but now there will be Wimbledon and you'll show the world that you're still the best and will equal the 7 wins of Rafa in Roland Garros!
Please show us your fans your great tennis!
God Bless,
Rose Marie

*Yukimi* You want to check your facts before you say anything. Eppy3006 is right. Roger has won six Wimbledon trophies, 2003, 04, 05, 06, 07 and finally 2009. So we ARE looking forward to a 7th.If you look at the Wikepedia site it will show you just how awe-inspiring he is - it blows your mind.

We all want Rog to go for 7th but he 's got to get 6th first - Roger does not have the 6th Wimbledon yet.

Let's hope Rog get Halle, Wimby and Olympics - that will make him very happy.

So you guys can see this *rogerpete25*06/11/2012 | 08:28 PM!

So I'm not the only one- exactly what I feared before Djok lost to Raf today - Raf is going to be a lock on the RG for at least 3 more times - Djoko is the only guy who is around same age & can take Raf out.

Everytime Rog plays him , my heart bleeds to death, cuz Raf tortures Rog ruthlessly and brutally.

You guys enjoy that? OK you dont? - then DON"T cheer for Raf.

Rog wil have enough pain without you hoping Nad wins more.

So Roger, now that Raffa won his 7th Roland Garros, it's your'e time to win 7th at Wimbledon ;-)
