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."

Roger... It was a pity that you lost to Haas at the Kooyong Classic. I really don't think green and white are your colors. You should go back to wearing red or blue, you play better tennis in those two colors. These two colors give you better luck and "en

Dear Roger,
I was sad to hear about the loss, but relieved that it's only an invitational tourney. Rest up and train well for the AO. Go Roger!!!
