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!
