Roger defeated in final

15.08.2010 | Tennis

Roger suffered a 5-7, 5-7 defeat against Andy Murray in a rain-affected final at the Rogers Cup in Toronto today.

 

He had to deal with a rough start against the Scot, falling back 0-3 with a double-break. Roger rallied, however, and over the course of the set clawed both breaks back with a mix of wonderful strokes and hard graft to level at 5-5. A tie-break seemed likely but Murray eked out an advantage on our champ's serve, eventually taking the set.

 

The second set was delayed by rain several times. Murray secured a break advantage at one stage and Roger displayed great tennis after a second rain delay, breaking Murray back and later levelling to 5-5. But as in the first set, Roger faced another late break and eventually had to admit defeat after just over 2 hours of play.

 

Thanks to his great performance this week, Roger has climbed back up to the number 2 spot in the world rankings. He is playing Cincinnati this week where he will either meet James Blake or a qualifier in the second round after a first round bye. He certainly looks ready to defend the title!

You palyed so well last week and probably would have won in different circumstances.
But what the heck, this is a different tournament and a different day. Look forward to defending your Title.
Good Luck against Istomin. Have a great game and i know yo

Unfortunately, today you weren't able to beat Andy. Although it is not a good news, I believe you should think positively, because you have played quite well along this week, after a month without compete at all. It's been a great time to get some confide
