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.

Congratulations Champ Roger on a good show at Halle. A final finish is good - not great, but acceptable - especially since you played well over-all, and you lost to a worthy old warrior and friend Lleyton Hewitt.

I'd make this suggestion again about ta

Thank you for the compliments --do not know about the high IQ though!
Your last sentence is a gem!
Please do not think that I do not feel sad/disappointed when Roger loses--sometimes I even cry such as 4th round AO 2008 when he pla

Dear Roger, I'm sorry you couldn't win Halle. But thank you for the pleasure you gave to so many of us to see you playing on grass again.There is no more beautiful a sight on a grass court than you playing tennis on it. It is a rare & recious gift to us.

It's time to accept that this is a new era for both Rog and fans, with different, more modest expectations.

Rog needs to find a new motivation, a new physical regimen (that adds power), and better strategies to defeat Nadal and the power guys.

Hi Roger, how are you?
You played a good tournament and made a great transition from clay it felt like you were playing on grass the entire season, at the end it was a great prep for Wimbledon.
