Defeat at the Kooyong Classic

11.01.2006 | Tennis

Roger was upset by Tommy Haas at the Kooyong Classic - a warmup tournament for the Australian Open. Haas (GER), ranked No. 41, triumphed 3-6, 6-4, 6-4 in the opening round of the exhibition tournament in Melbourne.

 

Roger hit 39 unforced errors, against Haas' 30, and produced only two of his 15 winners on the backhand. As the tournament is an invitational it does not count towards the official rankings.

 

"With all the injuries in men's tennis, I'm just happy to be standing," Roger said. "I'm happy I arrived OK and played through the match without any pain."

Very pleased to read on Kooyong website that you proved too strong for Ljubicic and won in straight sets today (Thursday). The wind is behind you again now. Go Roger!!

Keep that positive attitude of yours always. I'm sure the loss in Kooyong will not affect your chances in AO. Goodluck my dear champion!
