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.

Not to worry about the loss, afterall you had an incredible 15 match winning streak against him. However, you should learn from this going into Wimbledon.

Let the fire, drive, passion to win re-ignite in you because that is the only way yo

It is not about being a good fan, a bad fan, or an indifferent fan. The point is more about realizing that tennis is a sport -- and Fed is not going to be able to deliver all the time in the finals. Things can be off, the opponent is playing out of his mi

Yahhhh, sad that you are defeated by Hewitt. But if you are going to continue such uninteresting tennis better to give up. You need more preparations. Hope you will show your tennis on Wimbledon.Good luck and all the best.........

I meant two BABIES. They aren't yet a year old. I can't even believe he is able to do all these tournaments that he has been doing.

One thing people are underestimating - the effect of TWO toddlers at the same time. I honestly don't know how Federer expected to play the same this year and it was amazing that he did this well. Anyone who has had even one baby in the household knows w
