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."

It must be weird to think that as of right now 50964 people are sad that you lost a match!!
When you were a little boy and your Mom took you to practice did you ever think that so many people around the world could care what happens to you?
Well, we all

Dear Roger,
Forget the match against Haas. It doesn't count towards the rankings so don't worry. Good Luck for the Aus. Open!
