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!

Not the expected outcome; but their were some positive points you can take away from the match.

Moving on, good luck in Cincinnati you are the defending champ from last year.

Much love :-)!!!!

Sorry for your loss. But it’s ok, Roger. You’ve already shown us your great tennis in that match. But it wasn’t your day.

It’s so extremely competitive in men tennis nowadays. Hoping you find the way to gear up your tennis’s to be upmost once again. Ma

Wo !! Girl!! You're so romantic - I really admire you.

I can't speak for Roger so I'll speak for myself.
