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.

Bad play at Halle. Another bad result.
The semis were bad play too. The finals even worse play obviously. Losing 2 service games on grass in the 1st set to #40 in the world in the semis is bad enough play on serve.

If Fed on his best surface with a 29 match winning streak in the tournament, winning 5 titles, 76-1 on grass over 8 years and losing to a 29 year old (older than him) after 15 straight wins, mostly routine and easy, and in a final and winning the 1st set
