Roger defeated by Stan

02.06.2015 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger unfortunately did not find the means to challenge Stan Wawrinka today. Our champ lost the quarter-final at the French Open 4-6, 3-6, 6-7(4).

 

Roger: "I tried various things to get back into the match. Maybe it just wasn't possible against him today. It only happens rarely that I don't score a single break in a match. I am particularly disappointed by my returns on the second serves. It was not terrible today, but I can play better."

 

Roger was under pressure right from the start and faced strong serves all through the match. He already had to fight off two break-balls in the first game. But Stan managed the break upon the next opportunity. Roger came back with a total of four chances for a re-break, but did not succeed. In the second set, Roger dropped his serve at 3-4 and again was unable to break Stan's serve. The third set went without breaks, but it was Stan who finally prevailed in the tie-breaker, converting his second match-ball after 2 hours and 9 minutes.

Roger needs to put those two decisions behind and settle down.

From your local reporter in Halle - Seve is here from the very first Roger's practice with Philipp on Friday. I could see him observing the practice, but there was no TV.
