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."
