Roger defeated by Hewitt

13.06.2010 | Tennis

Roger had to accept a 6-3, 6-7(4), 4-6 defeat against Lleyton Hewitt today.

 

Roger showed a strong start in Halle today. He took a 40-0 lead on Hewitt's serve during the second set, but did not manage to use the chance given. From that point on he was no longer able to score on the important points, eventually losing the final in three sets. "We've known each other for years and once played doubles together in Wimbledon and I always looked up to him," Roger said going into the match. "It is something special to play against him."

 

Roger had not lost a match at Halle since 2002, winning the title five times, and had beaten Hewitt in their last 15 showdowns. But he simply committed too many unforced errors today. Nevertheless, Roger profited from an entire week of preparation on grass and is ready for Wimbledon starting in a week.

'They flee from me that sometime did me seek
I have seen them gentle tame and meek
That now are wild and do not remember
That sometime they put themselves in danger
To take bread at my hand; and now they range
Basely seeking perpetual change.'

Dear Roger
If you only could read some of these posts here!! I want to think that we, Roger's fans, want to help Roger. I agree we can't do it by praising his game that doesn't deserve to be praised. We must admit that Roger didn't play well enough, but
